Liverpool can seal their place in the Champions League last 16 with a win at home to Atalanta on Wednesday night.

Victory at Anfield would leave the Reds on 12 points, eight ahead of the Italians with two group stage games to play.

It could be a vital boost for the Reds who face injury issues in the squad, as it would allow Jurgen Klopp to rotate his squad somewhat for the final matches.
