Diego Simeone has to solve a lot of problems with injured players in his squad before the match. Trippier, Morata, Costa, and the golden boy Felix are complaining of various issues, and their participation in the first game is still uncertain. In addition, the team is not experiencing its best time, as Leganes had eliminated it in Copa Del Rey, and it is 13 points behind LaLiga's leader Real Madrid. However, the home advantage should be used by Atletico, regardless of its problems in Spain. Having in mind that most likely D.Simeone has prepared many traps for Liverpool, Atletico has some good chances to win. That's why we are advising you to check the market Atletico to win - the odds are excellent.
