Liverpool is an opponent that no team wants to face right now, in any arena. The baggage of coach Juergen Klopp’s teachers and students marching to Atletico Madrid’s field tonight is a series of 14 consecutive unbeaten matches, including 13 victories on all fronts, with all opponents from small to large, from inside to inside. country and abroad.
However, it will not be easy for the Champions League champion to conquer the “fortress” of Wanda Metropolitano, although Liverpool is considered the strongest conqueror to conquer Europe at this time. Wanda Metropolitano is still the most difficult “fortress” in Europe.
Atletico Madrid, although somewhat depressed this season, they still maintain their bravery and stubbornness at the Wanda Metropolitano home ground. In this season, Atletico Madrid have only lost 1 match at home, but only against Barca with a minimum score of 0-1. That is one of the last 9 home matches of coach Diego Simeone’s team, the rest they won 7 victories and 1 draw.

Particularly in the Champions League, the last team to win Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano was Chelsea, nearly 3 years ago. The remaining teachers and coach Simeone were unbeaten in the last 9 matches, of which 7 won. The recent defeats of Liverpool’s recent generals are the mighty Roma, Dortmund or Juventus.
Atletico Madrid under Diego Simeone has never been an easy opponent to subdue, even when they were weak. The more difficult times, the more difficult the situation, the more difficult it is for Atletico Madrid to be defeated, especially at home.
Liverpool obviously understand that. In particular, Spain has never been an easy land to conquer with the defending champion. Liverpool have not won the last 5 trips to the country of Gaur in the European Cup, suffered 4 defeats and only won 1 draw.
It is even more difficult for Liverpool when tonight they have to march to the Wanda Metropolitano fortress. Remember, since being coached by coach Simeone, Atletico Madrid have never lost at home in the knockout round of the Champions League.
In addition, Atletico Madrid has never been bored with guests from the foggy country. In the past, Atletico Madrid has hosted teams from England 12 times in the continental playground. As a result, the home team suffered only 1 defeat, the remaining 7 wins and 4 draws. The only defeat of the Madrid team was against Chelsea in 2017 mentioned above.
That is a problem that coach Jurgen Klopp has to calculate carefully or it will be like “headbutting the wall”. He must understand that conquering Wanda Metropolitano is an extremely difficult task. He could not send his army to risk in this land of many pitfalls.

Accepting a shrug, giving up the game to the home team may be the solution that Jurgen Klopp will apply in Madrid tonight. A draw will be a great success for Liverpool in the first leg. Liverpool want to “finish” Atletico Madrid in the second leg at Anfield, which is due to take place two weeks later (March 2).
In fact, this is Klopp’s habit. Liverpool is very difficult to win in Spain, but always wins the final against opponents from the country of bullfighting thanks to home achievements. The most typical is in the semi-finals of the Champions League last season, when Liverpool lost 0-3 to Barca at the Nou Camp and everyone thought they were eliminated right after the first leg. However, back at Anfield, Liverpool won 4-0, shocking the world before advancing to the final and winning the championship right at the Wanda Metropolitano.
