UCL: A.B.C vs Liverpool


Two of European football's most entertaining teams will face off when Atalanta BC host Liverpool to Gewiss Stadium in Bergamo. The two sides met for the first time, currently occupying the top 2 positions of Group D Champions League and can go a long way to the knockout round with victory here.

Right now, however, this promises to be a tough test for a patchy Liverpool defense, especially as Atalanta has been touted as one of Europe's top scorer. under Piero Gasperini time. Only one team has scored more goals in Serie A this season, with Atalanta having netted 17 in their opening six matches, while only 2 clubs have scored more goals in any of the tables. tables in the Champions League. Atalanta is not a master of the defense exactly when it comes to conceding 13 times in six Serie A appearances, and one thing this fixture seems to guarantee is goals - in just 13 combined matches of They this season, two 2 have seen 62 goals. They crushed Midtjylland 4-0 away in the first match before scoring 2 goals down to save the home draw against Ajax last week, thereby gaining 4 points from the opening two matches. Gasperini's side are in much better form than the same period last season, as they lost their opening 3 group stage games but somehow recovered to reach the knockout stages, eventually being eliminated by Paris Saint-Germain. La Dea was in time to return to victory over Crotone at the weekend, with a double from Luis Muriel, earlier, Atalanta scored 13 goals in the opening three matches and the attacking power not only made Liverpool wary but also made they cannot go very far this season as they lost their opening 3 group stage games but somehow recovered to reach the knockout stages, eventually being eliminated by Paris Saint-Germain.

However, it is a different story for Liverpool in the Champions League this season, as Jurgen Klopp's side kept clean sheets in victories over Ajax and FC Midtjylland to take control of Group D. The Reds were one of three the team have not conceded a single goal in the group stage and they arrive at Bergamo to have won their last four games in all competitions - most recently a 2-1 win over West Ham United on Saturday. verpool has also won all three of their last Champions League away games - having lost four in a row before that - including a 1-0 win over Ajax on day one. Klopp's performance in Italy is poor; He has lost all five previous Champions League appearances as a manager, including three previous visits to Liverpool.
