Liverpool vs Atletico Madrid LIVE!

Liverpool marched into the knockout stages of the Champions League with two games to spare after a convincing 2-0 victory over 10-man Atletico Madrid at Anfield on Wednesday guaranteed them top spot in Group B.

Diogo Jota put Jurgen Klopp’s side ahead in the 13th minute, nodding home at the back post after a great cross from the right by Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Alexander-Arnold was again the provider for the second eight minutes later when his low ball into the box was brilliantly met by Sadio Mane who fired past Jan Oblak.

The Spanish side’s troubles intensified after Felipe was sent off in the 36th minute for a deliberate trip on Mane that earned him a harsh straight red.

Jota thought he had his second and Liverpool’s third, shortly after the interval, but the goal was ruled out for offside after a VAR review.

Former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez also had a deflected effort which beat Alisson Becker ruled out by VAR for offside.

Relive the maddest moment of the night

22:13 , Marc Mayo

That win was only the third for Liverpool in 14 home against against Spanish opponents in the Champions League or European Cup. Jurgen Klopp is proving rather good at breaking this bogey run having also helmed a 4-0 win over Barcelona two years ago.

22:09 , Marc Mayo

Elsewhere, Manchester City downed Club Brugge 4-2 to go top of Group A after a late penalty earned RB Leipzig a 2-2 draw at home to PSG.

Ajax are also in the last-16 as group winners following a 3-1 win away to Borussia Dortmund. Inter Milan beat FC Sheriff 3-1 in Moldova.

22:00 , Marc Mayo

Full-time! Liverpool 2-0 Atletico Madrid

21:53 , Marc Mayo

The Reds top Group B with two games to go!

21:52 , Marc Mayo

90+3 mins: De Paul floats it over. De poor.

21:51 , Marc Mayo

90+2 mins: Matip booked for taking Cunha down near the box. He probably did get the ball, hence his angry reaction.

21:50 , Marc Mayo

90+1 mins: Hermoso pings a very nice, if very speculative effort, just off target.

21:49 , Marc Mayo

90 mins: Four minutes added on.

The hosts still pushing for a third...

21:45 , Marc Mayo

87 mins: Save!

Henderson tries his luck with a stinging volley from 20 yards, which Oblak is more than equal to.

21:44 , Marc Mayo

85 mins: Origi again bustles in the box but comes off second best, earning a round of chants in his name from the Kop.

A recycled ball in sees Jota attempt an overhead kick, which clatters Trippier to earn a booking. The ball hit the back of the net moments later, but the whistle had gone.

21:42 , Marc Mayo

83 mins: Party football from the Reds, Salah pulling out some magic down the right and Thiago’s neat flick almost teed up a chance. But Atletico can clear.

21:40 , Marc Mayo

81 mins: Origi is keen to get involved and almost gets on the end of a cross from the left, only for Oblak to claim commandingly.

21:37 , Marc Mayo

77 mins: Salah wriggles through in the box before Lodi gets in well to marshall the ball out.

Oxlade-Chamberlain does come off, with Firmino’s substitution confirmed. Jota and Minamino on. Serrano replaces Correa for the visitors.

21:33 , Marc Mayo

75 mins: Not good news for Liverpool as Firmino, a half-time sub himself, walks off with an issue. Minamino will finally come on as a result.

21:32 , Marc Mayo

74 mins: Chance!

Atletico formulate a really nice break and Herrera is played in for a one-on-one.

He shoots early and drags his effort well wide. Ironic cheers ensue.

21:30 , Marc Mayo

72 mins: Henderson utterly flabbergasted after De Paul hits the deck holding his shin, having had his toe tapped at maximum by the Liverpool captain.

21:28 , Marc Mayo

70 mins: A pause as Oxlade-Chamberlain receives treatment.

He breaks into a jog as he gingerly heads off, immediately reporting to Klopp as Minamino prepares to come on. That’s not necessary for now as the former Arsenal man continues.

21:27 , Marc Mayo

69 mins: Cunha and Vrsaljko come on for Atleti as Koke and Carrasco are spared the final 20 minutes.

21:24 , Marc Mayo

66 mins: Liverpool content to slow the game down with those Atleti changes pulling them back to a 5-4-1 setup.

21:22 , Marc Mayo

62 mins: Close!

Into Allez-Allez territory for Liverpool now and Van Dijk rifles a potshot from distance, flying only an inch or two over Oblak’s bar.

21:17 , Marc Mayo

59 mins: Another tight review, that.

Suarez’s strike against his old club is chalked off and he is subbed off, to both boos and applause, for Lodi. Joao Felix is off for Herrera.

Thiago replaces Fabinho for Liverpool.

21:15 , Marc Mayo

57 mins: Offside!

VAR calls back another goal! That’s one each now!

21:15 , Marc Mayo

56 mins: Back of the net for Atletico! Well, well, well. Suarez’s volley deflects in.

21:13 , Marc Mayo

54 mins: Now Jota mistimes a header from a great position.

This one really should be wrapped up with a bow on it.

21:12 , Marc Mayo

53 mins: Joao Felix becomes the fifth Atletico player to pick up a card after wiping out Fabinho in that move. It happened right in front of the dugout and he immediately protested the fourth-official - as play continued!

21:11 , Marc Mayo

51 mins: Close!

Salah races clear and Oblak stands tall to block his effort, and De Paul turns Jota’s rebound wide.

And again! From the corner, Matip skews a close-range sitter wide. Right place, wrong man.

21:08 , Marc Mayo

49 mins: Ruled out!

VAR disallows the goal for offside... It looked rather level.

21:07 , Marc Mayo

48 mins: Back of the net! A ball over the top, Jota controls and rolls it under Oblak!

21:06 , Marc Mayo

47 mins: Liverpool straight back to it and Salah fires a shot into his marker to win a corner.

Alexander-Arnold fires two crosses in, both easily cleared at the near-post.

Second-half! Liverpool 2-0 Atletico Madrid

21:04 , Marc Mayo

46 mins: Firmino enters the fray for Mane as the game restarts.

Suarez is still trying to argue with the referee.

20:59 , Marc Mayo

Recap the opening goal...

20:57 , Marc Mayo

Elsewhere in the Champions League, Manchester City are level 1-1 at home to Club Brugge. PSG lead RB Leipzig 2-1 in the other Group A game.

Inter Milan are yet to find a breakthrough against FC Sheriff, Borussia Dortmund lead Ajax, and Sporting CP are three up at home to Besiktas.

20:52 , Marc Mayo

Felipe’s red card is the 11th shown in Atletico games this season, that’s a rate of a dismissal every other match.

Half-time! Liverpool 2-0 Atletico Madrid

20:48 , Marc Mayo

Two goals for the Reds, one red card for the visitors.

20:46 , Marc Mayo

45 mins: Atletico steady the ship somewhat for the final moments, with two minutes added on.

To sum up this half in an image? Maybe this...

20:43 , Marc Mayo

42 mins: Save!

Oblak again called into action after a lovely cross from Tsimikas is headed goalwards by Jota. In reality, he’s got to score.

20:42 , Marc Mayo

41 mins: Liverpool may well fancy sitting on this lead in an effort to come through this game with their shins intact.

But Klopp’s side will always look for another goal and a third will truly end this as a contest. For now, the Reds are camped outside the Atleti area and Salah’s twist-and-drive is well saved by Oblak.

20:40 , Marc Mayo

39 mins: Koke is the latest Atletico player to enter the book. This could be a long night for the visitors.

20:38 , Marc Mayo

37 mins: Suarez is also booked amid Atletico protests and Felipe is dismissed, perhaps for ignoring Makkelie’s call to come and accept his booking!

Red card!

20:37 , Marc Mayo

36 mins: A fresh Reds break is nipped in the bud by Felipe, who looks set to earn a yellow for the cynical foul.

Yet Makkelie produces a red!

20:35 , Marc Mayo

34 mins: An error from the visitors sets Salah through and, once again, he is effectively mobbed by the defence having hesitated over the ball to Jota.

A third is necessary to get this game done for Liverpool.

20:31 , Marc Mayo

30 mins: Scintillating from Salah, who leaves Hermoso for dead before Gimenez crowds him out to win a goal kick.

20:28 , Marc Mayo

27 mins: Just like that night in Madrid, Simeone’s side are looking bright now they’re behind.

Oxlade-Chamberlain tracks back to make a good intervention in his box after the hosts deal with a set of crosses.

20:26 , Marc Mayo

25 mins: It took 21 minutes for Liverpool to leap into a two-goal lead against Atletico tonight.

It took only 13 in Spain and, by the 20th minute, Griezmann had put the Spaniards on the board as they made a comeback.

This time around, Carrasco works a nice opening but has his shot blocked.

20:24 , Marc Mayo

23 mins: Close!

Alexander-Arnold is running amok down the right and Oxlade-Chamberlain pops up to fire across goal.

It’s just wide and perhaps would have been better left for the defender.

20:23 , Marc Mayo

22 mins: Inside the first quarter of the game, the Reds lead by two.

Mane fights well to race across the final third and the ball reaches Alexander-Arnold via Henderson, with his drive into the box nudged home by the Senegalese striker.

GOAL! Liverpool 2-0 Atletico Madrid | Mane

20:22 , Marc Mayo

21 mins: Mane taps home from close-range!

20:20 , Marc Mayo

19 mins: The Liverpool pressure is truly ramping up, an appeal for handball in the area also earning a huge cry from the Kop - which the referee ignores.

20:20 , Marc Mayo

18 mins: That was Jota’s fifth goal of the season, and first in Europe.

It was also his first against former employers Atletico.

20:18 , Marc Mayo

16 mins: The home crowd, ready for boo or appeal for anything at a moment’s notice, are very up for this and Tsimikas wins a corner to a big round of applause.

The Greek’s cross almost meets Matip but Oblak is there to claim.

20:16 , Marc Mayo

14 mins: Alexander-Arnold produced a Beckham-esque cross from a standing start that left Atletico’s defenders rooted to the turf. Jota swoops in to nod past Oblak. 1-0.

Meanwhile, Makkelie books Mane for a kerfuffle with Correa on the halfway line.

GOAL! Liverpool 1-0 Atletico Madrid | Jota

20:14 , Marc Mayo

13 mins: Jota with the header!

20:12 , Marc Mayo

11 mins: Correa given the benefit of the doubt after falling onto the ball with his arm, the subsequent cross is cleared though and Liverpool fail to make anything of a chance to counter.

Two direct teams in no mood to roll it around on their own 18-yard line tonight.

20:10 , Marc Mayo

10 mins: Liverpool targeting the right wing so far, where the Hermoso-Salah tussle is unfolding.

Henderson joins in and rushes the box well but miscues a backheel and Atleti clear for a throw.

20:09 , Marc Mayo

8 mins: Hermoso may like to play that one down as “letting him know you’re there”, in reality it was “being completely done”.

The free-kick from Alexander-Arnold is too shallow and cleared.

20:09 , Marc Mayo

7 mins: Tsimikas gets a talking to from the referee after arriving late to a header, wiping out Trippier in the process.

The England defender is up slowly and his teammate, Hermoso, convincingly earns the first booking of the night with an even later lunge on Salah.

20:05 , Marc Mayo

4 mins: Plenty of space for Atleti to attack into too, Carrasco laying a cross off for Joao Felix but the youngster’s touch lets him down and Alisson gathers.

20:04 , Marc Mayo

3 mins: Little sign of Atletico setting up and sitting deep here, the visitors moving the ball around nicely and De Paul luring a foul out of Henderson.

Kick-off! Liverpool 0-0 Atletico Madrid

20:01 , Marc Mayo

Dutch referee Danny Makkelie blows his whistle and we’re off at Anfield.

19:57 , Marc Mayo

Here come the teams...

A big European night atmosphere at Anfield. This could be a big one.

Reminder!

19:54 , Marc Mayo

TV channel: Today’s game will be broadcast live on BT Sport 2 and BT Sport Ultimate.

Live stream: BT Sport subscribers can also watch the game live via the BT Sport website or app.

How’s Stat?!

19:51 , Marc Mayo

Atletico typically enjoy playing in England, going five unbeaten for a controversial 2-0 defeat to Chelsea last season.

That includes two trips to Anfield, the most recent of which finished 3-2 to the LaLiga team in March 2019.

That was one of just two Champions League ties Liverpool have lost at home under Jurgen Klopp, from 22 games.

Full time at the San Siro!

19:45 , Marc Mayo

It finishes all even between AC Milan and Porto after Mbemba’s own goal, giving the Rossoneri their first point of the group stage.

It also means a win for Liverpool tonight not only earns qualification to the last-16 - but also first place in Group B.

Liverpool face the return of this old friend tonight - however Luis Suarez has only scored one goal in nine Champions League games for Atletico Madrid, which itself was a penalty.

19:24 , Marc Mayo

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has acknowledged how useful it would be to seal qualification to the last-16 with a win tonight.

The German said: "It would be big. We usually have a ‘final’ in the group, the last match day, where we have to win 1-0 and the opponent is not allowed to score at all - but I hope that doesn’t happen this year.

"Of course we want to avoid that, but we can’t take the second step before the first step. We just have to win, and then afterwards we can talk about what kind of achievement that would be."

Fernando Torres has been giving his take ahead of a clash between his most cherished former clubs.

Now the Atletico academy coach, the ex-striker said: “Today is going to be difficult for me because obviously Atletico is my team – but also Liverpool.

“But the most important thing is the atmosphere and the love the people are showing me since yesterday when we landed in Liverpool.”

19:09 , Marc Mayo

A goal for AC Milan in Italy...

Pierre Kalulu’s shot towards goal was turned in by Porto defender Chancel Mbemba to make it 1-1 with half an hour to play.

19:02 , Marc Mayo

18:55 , Marc Mayo

So a start for Luis Suarez in the absence of the suspended Antoine Griezmann, the second such return for the Uruguayan to Anfield.

While Jurgen Klopp brings in Joel Matip and Konstantinos Tsimikas, with Diogo Jota and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain getting a start alongside the fit-again Fabinho.

The Atletico team tonight...

18:52 , Marc Mayo

Atletico XI: Oblak; Trippier, Felipe, Gimenez, Hermoso; Correa, De Paul, Koke, Carrasco; Suarez, Joao Felix.

Subs: Lecomte, Iturbe, Lodi, Vrsaljko, Herrera, Gonzalez, Serrano, Carlos, Cunha.

How Liverpool line up...

18:47 , Marc Mayo

Liverpool XI: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Tsimikas; Fabinho, Henderson, Oxlade-Chamberlain; Mane, Jota, Salah.

Subs: Adrian, Kelleher, Konate, Thiago, Firmino, Minamino, Robertson, Origi, Phillips, Williams, Morton.

Evening Standard prediction: Liverpool 2-1 Atletico Madrid

18:42 , Marc Mayo

Liverpool’s defence might have not wholly convinced thus far but, frankly, their attack has more than made up for it. With Atletico missing some key players, it seems reasonable to expect a home win.

Liverpool to win 2-1.

18:29 , Marc Mayo

AC Milan vs Porto, the other Group B game, is one of the early kick-offs tonight.

And it is bad news for both Liverpool and Atletico as Porto lead 1-0 at the San Siro through Luis Diaz, after the Italians gave away the ball in their own half.

That would put Porto into second, three points above Atleti and two behind Liverpool - ruling out any hopes of sealing first place tonight.

Early team news

18:17 , Marc Mayo

Fabinho and Thiago Alcantara could return for the hosts, who are without Harvey Elliott (ankle), James Milner and Naby Keita (both hamstring).

Atleti are without the suspended Antoine Griezmann and Stefan Savic for tonight’s game. Marcos Llorente (muscle) is a major doubt with Geoffrey Kondogbia (concussion) and Thomas Lemar (muscle) absent.
