Atletico are up against the most formidable team in Europe in Liverpool and Diego Simeone is looking to beat Jurgen Klopp’s Reds over the course of the two legs against the Anfield club in the Champions League this season.
Liverpool are currently 25 points clear at the top of the Premier League and are yet to lose a game in the league this campaign, dropping just two points in a draw against Manchester United all season.
Atletico, on the other hand, are 4th in La Liga, 13 points adrift of league leaders and city rivals Real Madrid.
