Atletico Madrid vs Liverpool


European Cup holders Liverpool will travel to Atletico Madrid for their first leg of their last-16 Champions League tie on Tuesday night.
The Reds are closing in on their first league title for 30 years but will be determined to pick up a positive result at the Wanda Metropolitano ahead of the second leg at Anfield on March 11.
Atletico have been dumped out of the Copa del Rey and lost in the Spanish Super Cup final since the turn of the year, in addition to suffering league defeats to Eibar and Real Madrid.
Tuesday’s clash will actually be just the fifth meeting between Atletico and Liverpool in European competition, and the Spanish giants triumphed on away goals following a 2-2 draw when they last locked horns in the semi-finals of the 2010 Europa League.
