2 big reasons why Atletico Madrid’s clash is getting tougher – Liverpool FC Roundup – Liverpool FC

Liverpool have a number of issues to resolve ahead of trips to Watford and Madrid and it is a far cry from the usual injuries and headaches for Jurgen Klopp.

Atleti Boost, Liverpool Card

It has never been routine to face Spanish champions Atletico Madrid in the Champions League group stage this season – that’s what makes the two previous wins so important.

But now, while Atleti is getting a big boost from their country, Liverpool’s own are doing everything they can to suspend preparations.

Atleti’s weekend game was postponed due to the late return of the South American players involved, while the Reds couldn’t even reach an agreement to postpone kick-off by a few hours.

We’re also still thinking about the best way to involve Alisson and Fabinho, which means that after their international appearances they can fly straight to Spain as they have no chance against Watford.
