Liverpool head into their third Champions League group stage match high on confidence after a fine run of form, but they face their toughest test in Europe this season as they face Atletico Madrid. The Spanish champions have been in solid, if unspectacular, form this term – taking four points from the two group games so far and fourth in LaLiga, three points off top spot.

Notably, Atleti also knocked the Reds out of this competition when they were holders in 2020, something Jurgen Klopp’s team will be keen to put right. However, they also have extremely good memories of the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium – as they beat Tottenham on this ground to win the Champions League the campaign prior.

Liverpool come into the game off the back of a five-goal thumping of Watford at the weekend, where Mohamed Salah once more showed his immense current form with a spectacular solo goal. This is the first of two successive encounters between the sides in the group stage, which could dictate who progresses as group winners. Follow all the match action below as Atletico Madrid host Liverpool.

Atletico 2 – 2 Liverpool

37 mins: Lemar shimmies past Alexander-Arnold and swings a cross into the far side of the box. Griezmann collects and plays it inside to Koke. He tries to chip the ball over the Liverpool defence but the pass is too heavy and it bounces safely for Alisson to collect.

GOAL! Atletico 2 – 2 Liverpool (Griezmann, 34’)⚽️

34 mins: Turnaround, Atletico are level! Joao Felix takes the ball down the left side and skips around Keita. He passes it into Griezmann who knocks the ball past Van Dijk and into the box then follows it in and sweeps a brilliant left-footed finish away from Alisson and into the back of the net! Great goal from the Frenchman.

33 mins: Mane’s been in the wars so far. He’s been fouled a few times already and wins another free kick on the left wing when Koke pulls on his shirt as he bombs away from the midfielder.

Robertson swings the free kick into the penalty area and Joel Matip is there to win the header but Oblak comes out and claims the ball.

30 mins: This is strange game. Atletico have a lot of men behind the ball but are struggling to win the ball off Liverpool. When they do they fly forward on the counter-attack and Liverpool look all at sea defensively.

Liverpool win a free kick over on the right wing that Alexander-Arnold curls into the box. Felipe heads the initial ball away but it’s sent back in by Keita and no-one gets to the ball before it crosses the byline.

26 mins: Liverpool look to restore their two goal lead as Keita threads a through ball into the right side of the box for Salah but he overhits the pass and gives the Egyptian no chance to beat Oblak to the ball.

A long ball from Atletico then sends Griezmann in behind Liverpool’s very high line and he carries the ball into the penalty area. Alisson is the last man and he charges down the Frenchman who tries to chip the goalkeeper but only manages to hit it into Alisson outstretched hands.

23 mins: There was a long delay as VAR checked the goal for a potential offside, most likely against Lemar. It took a while so must have been close but the goal stands!

We’ve got a game on here.

GOAL! Atletico 1 – 2 Liverpool (Griezmann, 20’)⚽️

20 mins: Atletico get one back! What a start we’ve had to this game. Atletico win a corner that Lemar plays short. He gets the ball back and skips around Keita before firing it into the box. It goes past the cluster of bodies and comes to Koke who runs onto the ball and shoots. His shot flies at Antoine Griezmann who, like Milner, just deflects the ball into the bottom corner.

18 mins: Atletico finally string together an attack. They bring the ball down the inside left before Koke slips the ball out to Lemar on the wing. He crosses the ball in from the byline hoping to find Joao Felix but Virgil van Dijk gets it clear.

15 mins: Salah runs the ball into the right side of the box and squares it across the six-yard area. Trippier takes a stray arm to face from Mane as he tries to get to the ball and Atletico win a free kick.

There’s some debate over the first goal with Uefa awarding it first to Salah, then to Milner and now they’ve gone back to Salah.

GOAL! Atletico 0 – 2 Liverpool (Keita, 13’)⚽️

13 mins: What a strike! Naby Keita doubles Liverpool’s lead with a powerful volley from the front of the box. Trent Alexander-Arnold swings a cross into the middle from the right side. The ball goes over Firmino and is poorly cleared by Felipe. His clearance drops to Keita who rattles the volley and smashes it into the back of the net. Liverpool are running away with it here.
