Our prediction for this Champions League match:
All eyes will be on Anfield when Liverpool and Atalanta face each other in the Group D derby. The Reds kicked off their Champions League campaign in style, with the team recording a win in each of their first three group games, and, no doubt, they are eager to keep their 100% record intact. Jurgen Klopp’s troops have been impressive in the elite competition this season, but keep in mind that the likes of Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk, Henderson, and Gomez are all likely to miss the match for the hosts.
Considering that the Orobici are eager to secure a top-two finish, we predict that they are going to grab something from the Anfield showdown. Liverpool crushed Atalanta 5-0 in Bergamo, but given the number of absentees in the home side, share of spoils is on the cards this time out. Caldara is sidelined with injury for the visitors, while Malinovskyi is out of contention after being tested positive for coronavirus.
