Reason for Atletico Madrid vs Liverpool FC UEFA Champions League Picks

Atletico Madrid +232

Atlético de Madrid played Juventus' second violin in Group D, then won a round of sixteen games with the defending champions. The hosts stumbled twice, much to the dismay of their followers, in the group stages, and finished six points behind the table players.

It should also be mentioned that the local team has not worked well in their national campaign lately. Miserably, Diego Simeone's men have only one victory to boast of their last four battles in La Liga trotting.

Historically difficult to score, Atlético has kept only three clean sheets (if they do not count overtime) in its last ten competitive games. Slightly better continental, they kept a clean sheet in the middle of their group stage matches, and have conceded only four goals in their last 12 home games in all competitions.

Team news: Kieran Trippier and Héctor Herrera will miss Liverpool's first leg, but Diego Simeone faces his biggest selection headache in the offense.

Joao Félix, Diego Costa and Álvaro Morata will be evaluated before Tuesday's clash, and Vitolo and Angel Correa can start attacking again.

Key Player: Both of Alvaro Morata’s (ATL) UCL goals this season have been scored after the 75th minute.

First Team To Score: Atlético Madrid +130

Liverpool FC +127

The chasm that appears among the best in Europe and the rest is obvious. While Klopp placed Liverpool at this level, Atlético de Madrid fell. It was not the tough away test that was once, Atlético having won only once in seven games, a narrow 1-0 win over Granada.

Liverpool have won 13 of their last 14 games, winning six out of their last eight in the Champions League. The Reds have also won five of their last seven trips in this competition, having won 2-0 here in the final in May.

In the last two consecutive seasons it has reached the UCL final, Liverpool have lost only two of a total of 12 games in the round of 16. In the round of 16, they won the first leg and tied at home in both seasons, covering a handicap of -1.5 goals in both away games.

Team news: Xherdan Shaqiri is Jurgen Klopp's only concern before his first trip to Wanda Metropolitano after his success in the Champions League last May.

Fabinho and Sadio Mane began the 1-0 victory at Norwich on the bench, but they are expected to replace Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in the midfield and on the offensive, respectively.

Key Player: Mohamed Salah (LIV) has three goals in his last three competitive matches. Three of his four UCL goals have come in the second half, and he netted the last goal in two of six group stage matches.

Goals Scored - Liverpool: Exactly 1 +160
