Liverpool play hosts to side Atalanta this week in the Champions League. A win at Anfield for the Reds could seal a spot in the last 16 with two games to spare. The match schedules for Wednesday with kickoff at 11 pm.

The Reds are fresh after handing Atalanta their heaviest ever home defeat on matchday three. The win pushes the Reds to top of Group D with five points clear of their closest challengers.

The reverse trip to Bergamo came under heavy speculation especially with the injury crisis currently faced at Anfield. However, a 5-1 win proved all speculations wrong, with Liverpool registering another impressive display.

The same case was expected last weekend when the Reds welcomed Leicester City at Anfield. An own goal by Jonny Evans and Bobby Firmino saw Liverpool extend their 69 unbeaten home streak despite an injury crisis.
