Where is Atletico Madrid vs Liverpool being played? Anfield


Jordan Henderson will be back to Liverpool matchday squad for Wednesday’s Champions League showdown against Atletico Madrid.

The captain should figure at Anfield in the second leg of round-of-16 tie, having been ruled out for a hamstring issue since their first meeting in Madrid last month. Jurgen Klopp told in press conference: “Hendo is ready but what we do with that, I don’t know… or maybe I know and I don’t say!”

Predicted line-up 

Adrián; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mané


Alisson Becker (hip), Shaqiri (calf), Clyne (knee)

Misses next game if booked

Gomez, Mané, Robertson

It’s half time – that’s the best news. For us, half-time in a normal game we use in a pretty good way. We learn from the first half, we show the boys a few situations, and very often we improve. We have had three weeks. A lot of things are now much clearer than they were before. We have to show that we have learned from the first half, from the first game, and to show that we really want to go through. There are a lot of opportunities for us – but against a quality team, they will be difficult to find.”

Atletico Madrid

Atletico Madrid are travelling with full squad and Diego Simeone has no intention to provide any clue to opponent about his strategy, or he wants to keep all options open.

Joao Felix, Kieran Trippier and Hector Herrera all missed first leg, but are travelling with the squad. A thigh issue forced Thomas Lemar off midway through that encounter, but the French midfielder has travelled with the La Liga outfit. Alvaro Morata, however, will undergo a late fitness test to determine if he has sufficiently recovered from a muscular problem, according to his manager.

Predicted line-up 

Oblak; Trippier, Savić, Felipe, Renan Lodi; Saúl Ñíguez, Partey, Koke, Vitolo; João Félix, Correa


Lemar (thigh), Morata (thigh)

We’ll need to suffer at certain moments, but we’ll get our chances too. You’ve seen over the past eight years what we can do, and we’ll need to show what we are capable of. We’ll be up against a great side who have demonstrated what they’re all about ever since Jürgen Klopp took over. I’ve never been to Anfield, as a coach or as a player. I’ve never had the chance to play in such a magnificent stadium, home to a side with such history.”

Diego Simeone, Atletico Madrid Manager
