UEFA Europa League | Liverpool VS Atalanta; Friday, 12 April at 03:45 GMT +8

Liverpool are a strong contender for the Europa League title this season and the Premier League, with a tight title race with Arsenal and Manchester City. They have only lost one of their last 13 matches in all competitions. However, their recent 2-2 draw against Manchester United was not enough to secure another win.

Atalanta’s Europa League ambitions were likely halted after a quarterfinal draw with Liverpool, but they remain in contention for the top four and the Champions League next season. However, their recent loss against Cagliari left them without points, as the home team was better at converting goal-scoring chances.

In the Champions League match on 25/11/2020, Liverpool managed 53% possession and 4 attempts on goal, while Atalanta scored 4 goals. Josip Iličić and Robin Gosens scored in the final score, with Carlos del Cerro Grande as the referee.

Liverpool’s Jürgen Klopp is set to use a 4-3-3 formation against Liverpool, with Caoimhin Kelleher, Conor Bradley, Jarell Quansah, Ibrahima Konaté, K. Tsimikas, Dominik Szoboszlai, Alexis Mac Allister, Ryan Gravenberch, Mohamed Salah, Darwin Núñez, and Cody Gakpo among the players unavailable due to injuries.

Atalanta’s gaffer, Gian Gasperini, has only one fitness concern due to Giorgio Scalvini’s hamstring injury. La Dea is likely to use a 3-4-2-1 formation with Juan Musso, Berat Djimsiti, Isak Hien, Sead Kolasinac, Emil Holm, Marten De Roon, Ederson José, Matteo Ruggeri, Teun Koopmeiners, Ademola Lookman, and Charles De Ketelaere.

Predicted lineups:


Goalkeeper: Caoimhin Kelleher
Defenders: Joe Gomez, Jarell Quansah, Ibrahima Konate, Andrew Robertson
Midfielders: Wataru Endo, Alexis Mac Allister, Harvey Elliott
Forwards: Mohamed Salah, Luis Diaz, Cody Gakpo


Goalkeeper: Marco Carnesecchi
Defenders: Rafael Toloi, Berat Djimsiti, Sead Kolasinac
Midfielders: Teun Koopmeiners, Marten de Roon, Hans Hateboer, Ederson, Davide Zappacosta
Forwards: Gianluca Scamacca, Ademola Lookman
