Moving one step closer to their first Premier League title over the weekend, Liverpool will turn their attention back to Champions League duties when they make the trip to the Wanda Metropolitano on Tuesday night.
Picking up a 1-0 win away at Carrow Road on Saturday evening and extending their buffer at the top of the table to a staggering 25 points, the reigning European champions have their sights set on mounting what would be a famous silverware sweep.
On the flip side, while the mood around Anfield might be continuing to skyrocket, Atletico Madrid find themselves in the midst of what has been a growing crisis in the Spanish capital.
Only managing to scrape a point off of Valencia on Saturday, Los Colchoneros are barely holding onto their top-four status in La Liga after a run of form that has seen them win just one of their last seven matches across all competitions.
You might be interested to know that six of the last eight combined matches between Liverpool and Atletico over the past month have seen under 2.5 goals and a similar outcome can be found priced at 4/5 with Coral.
Throwing away the lead twice against Valencia on Saturday and having to settle for just a point on the road, the struggling Spanish outfit have seen their fading title ambitions take yet another major dent.
With the pressure appearing to be mounting on long-standing boss Diego Simeone, Atletico have recorded just a sole victory since the 9th of January, a run that saw them come crashing out of the Copa del Rey thanks to an embarrassing 2-1 defeat away at lower league Cultural Leonesa.
While midfielder Thomas Partey might be calling on his side to find some much-needed stability, a huge part of Los Colchoneros’ recent issues has come down to some rather glaring lack of creativity in the final third.
Watching Diego Costa deal with a string of injury issues and Portugal starlet João Félix still struggling to find his feet in the Spanish capital, Atletico have failed to score more than a single goal in six of their last seven appearances.
Also drawing a blank in their shock 0-0 draw against Leganes last month, you might be interested to know that betting offers like Atletico can be found at 13/8 with Ladbrokes to draw another blank in midweek.
The high-flying Reds
Battling hard to pick up a 1-0 win at Carrow Road on Saturday evening and extending their buffer at the top of the Premier League to a remarkable 25 points, Jurgen Klopp’s camp have continued to break records.
Collecting a staggering 103 points out of a possible 105 in England’s top-flight, the reigning European champions find the mood in their camp at the highest it has been in recent memory.
Along with a growing reputation for their performances at the back, there is no doubt that the one-time Borussia Dortmund boss will be glad to see Sadio Mane make his return in East Anglia over the weekend.
Likely to make a return to Klopp’s starting XI after bagging the winner against Norwich three days ago, the Senegal ace scored his 100th goal for an English club career in all competitions.
Already recording goals against Red Bull Salzburg and Genk in this year’s Champions League, you might be interested to know that the 27-year-old can be found priced at 9/4 with Ladbrokes to extend on his tally this week.
