Can Athletico Madrid haunt Liverpool’s run of form with a victory in Champions League?

The Reds would be facing the dogged defensive resilience of Athletico Madrid at home as Diego Simeone prepares his side for another (big) test on the European stage.

And against Liverpool motivation would not be farfetched as both European giants clash at the Metropolitano Arena for this clash.

The home side are in good shape with the duo of Antoine Greizmann and Luis Suarez ready to devour any opposition at the moment.

But against Liverpool it would be another intriguing contest that would not be devoid of interesting moments in the course of the game.

Liverpool would be hoping to continue their dominance in this group having already beaten top sides like AC Milan and FC Porto in the previous game in this competition.

But with Athletico Madrid in second position expect them to give the Reds a run for their money.

The Athletico side have got the swag to make the most out of this meeting even as rivals FC Barcelona have tasted defeat at the same match venue.

It's going to be a tactical burst up between the two managers (Diego Simeone and Jurgen Klopp) involved.

While the players would be out  to prove their mettle on the pitch especially with the form of Liverpool's front three.

But with the records still tilting like it's in Athletico's favour, expect the home side to come on board with impressive performance in the game.

While the possibility of beating Liverpool at home to secure top spot in the group would be in the plan as the Reds travels to the Metropolitano Stadium to face Athletico Madrid in Tuesday's UEFA Champions League match.
