Prediction and Preview

 Liverpool vs Atalanta

Liverpool faces a daunting task as they head into the second leg of their Europa League quarter-final against Atalanta BC, trailing 3-0 after a surprising defeat in the first leg at Anfield. While Liverpool has a history of remarkable comebacks in European competitions, overturning such a significant deficit on the road will be a monumental challenge.

Atalanta's impressive performance in the first leg, led by Gianluca Scamacca and Mario Pasalic, exposed Liverpool's defensive vulnerabilities and highlighted their profligacy in front of goal. Despite Liverpool's reputation for dramatic turnarounds, Atalanta's strong away performance has put them in a commanding position.

Liverpool's recent struggles, both in Europe and domestically, add to the difficulty of their task. Their inability to convert scoring opportunities and defensive frailties have contributed to their recent defeats, including a loss to Crystal Palace in the Premier League.

However, Liverpool's away form offers a glimmer of hope, as they have consistently scored in their road fixtures this season. Additionally, their past success against Atalanta, including a dominant victory in the 2020-21 Champions League, provides some encouragement for a potential resurgence.

While the odds may be stacked against them, Liverpool has shown resilience in the face of adversity before, and they will need to summon that fighting spirit to have any chance of progressing to the next round of the Europa League.

Musso; De Roon, Djimsiti, Hien; Zappacosta, Pasalic, Ederson, Ruggeri; Koopmeiners; Scamacca, De Ketelaere
