Liverpool predicted lineup
Liverpool injury news
Andrew Robertson (knock) was rested against Bournemouth but should return for this vital Champions League clash.
There are no other fresh injuries, but Xherdan Shaqiri (calf) and Nathaniel Clyne (knee) are still short of fitness.
Jurgen Klopp is set to go with the same team that saw off Bournemouth 2-1, with Robertson returning at left back in the place of James Milner.
Atletico Madrid predicted lineup
Atletico Madrid injury news
Given Atletico were missing Kieran Trippier and Joao Felix for the first leg, and Diego Costa was only fit enough for the bench, Diego Simeone’s men are going into the return fixture with a much healthier squad.
Thomas Lemar (thigh) is yet to recover from his injury from the first tie, but Simeone has the rest of his squad at his disposal.
Felix and Alvaro Morata both scored in the 2-2 draw against Sevilla at the weekend, so expect them to lead the line for Los Rojibancos.
