Liverpool and Atletico Madrid clash at Anfield in the second leg of their Champions League last 16 tie. Atletico have a 1-0 advantage from the first leg thanks to Saul Niguez’s early strike.
What has been said?
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp: “Not a lot of the Atletico players have played at Anfield before and that is what we want to use.
“Our crowd will be our advantage and we have to use it with the performance on the pitch.
“It has to be exceptional because they defend deep and have counter-attack threat. Each player can be dangerous.
“I have the highest respect for them but there are always ways and we have to find them. We have to show we have really learned from the first game.”
Atletico head coach Diego Simeone: “We have to keep what we can during the game.
“Some managers will say ‘we are going to get forward’. That would be a nice pleasant dream.
“But all the thoughts I have before a game it is down to how much you are motivated on the field.
