Matchday 3, Group Stages

Atalanta will play host to Liverpool at Gewiss Stadium in what promises to be an action-packed 2020-21 UEFA Champions League clash at Gewiss Stadium on Tuesday evening between two free-scoring teams. Kick-off is at 22:00 CAT.

La Dea followed a 4-0 thumping of FC Midtjylland with a 2-2 draw at home to Ajax Amsterdam last time out. The Serie A club were 2-0 down at the break, but a brace from Duvan Zapata earned the hosts a point in Bergamo.

Liverpool beat Ajax 1-0 in their opening Group D fixture before a hard-fought 2-0 win over FC Midtjylland at Anfield.

“Pretty much as difficult as I expected, to be honest, for different reasons,” said Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp following their win over the Danish club. “We made a lot of changes and it’s my job to decide obviously, I have all the information of what the boys did.

“But for different reasons again, the game was really tricky. They pressed like crazy, they made a really hectic game of it and we couldn’t calm it down in the decisive moments.

“It’s just a tricky one; a lot of games, player after player says goodbye for a while [with injury] and then we still have to play the next game, and in our case we have to win it. We try with all we have and I’m really happy with that. And all the rest will come again.”

This will be the first Champions League meeting between the two clubs.
