Atletico Madrid Form and Team News

The Spanish Cup holders are still to get off the blocks after the first two game, they have secured just four points with a win and a draw. They won a tough away fixture against Milan. They drew the first game against FC Porto. Atletico Madrid played some inspirational football last season. They were so clinical that not even once in the entire season were they out of the first three positions in the league, they were the better team through the whole season and deservedly ended up winners as well. They are playing against Atletico Madrid in thenext match and they would want to start to dominate the CL. They have become the Spanish powerhouses after whatever they have done in the past few seasons, but one thing which is missing is a European Silverware which they can start eyeing to become World-beaters.

Diego Simeone has been spectacular with his reign at Atletico Madrid and he is starting to become a feared manager in the circuit. Given the form that both Real Madrid and Barcelona are in presently combined with all that’s been happening off the field as well, this season if Atletico can really capitalize, they can end up winning everything with the team they have. Luis Suarez has been playing like a dream and if he continues to do that, this team could really turn on the heat. The signing of Rodrigo De Paul also has been a highlight. The biggest surprise came on the last day of the transfer window when a certain former Atletico Legend Antonie Griezmann was signed back. This adds to a already spectacular lineup a even more lethal lad. 

Liverpool Form and Team News

They have started off quite well after the first two league games. Two wins out of two supports that’s statement as well. It’s a known fact that Liverpool were not at their best in the last season due to injury worries all year around. But losing to Real Madrid in the quarterfinal would have been a hard pill to swallow considering they were held to a stalemate in the second home leg. Liverpool so far have been ok to say nonetheless but have they really asserted their dominance in the league, the answer is a ‘NO’. They won against Leeds but drew against arch-rivals Chelsea. Liverpool in the last season were unfortunately troubled by a lot of injuries to key players and that in turn had a major effect in them not getting into the groove in any of the competitions they were part of, still managing to finish third in the points table is a great achievement. This attitude will help them in the tough matches they are going to be part of in the latter part.

Jurgen Klopp would hope for lesser injuries this season, and everything else would fall into place for the reds. The Salah, Mane, Firmino combo was not able replicate what they have been doing in the past seasons in the last season, but again this can be associated with Firmino’s regular injury breaks. Virgil is back and a major piece of the puzzle is sorted for Klopp with that, he missed the entirety of the last season and that showed in the defense as well, the reds can heave a sigh of relief.
