Suarez has just had one revenge game, scoring in a 2-0 win over Barcelona. The Uruguayan veteran had a sluggish start to the season, but he’s picked things up lately by netting four goals in his last four club outings. He also found the back of the net in Uruguay’s last game against Brazil.

Barcelona deemed him past his best but Suarez keeps proving them wrong. He scored 21 La Liga goals last season and is still going strong despite turning 34 next January.

The club has given Suarez a great supporting cast this season as well with the signing of Matheus Cunha and the return of Antoine Griezmann. The Frenchman notched his first goal for the club since returning in the last Champions League game when Atleti came from behind to beat Milan on the road 2-1.

Diego Simeone’s men are now looking for their first Champions League home win of the season. The first outing ended in a disappointing goalless draw against Porto.

Liverpool are going for their third Champions League win of the season. The team also struggled against Milan but managed to turn the tables and win 3-2 in the opening round. They completely ran amok in their second game against Porto winning 5-1 away from home.

Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino combined for all the goals against Porto. Liverpool’s fearsome front three have been back to their best this season and if they can keep up their form, Liverpool should have a good chance to get only their second-ever win over Atletico. The Spanish side has won three of the previous six meetings.

Atletico have recorded two wins and one draw against Liverpool on home turf. Los Colchoneros are always a very tough nut to crack at their place. Only four visiting sides have won at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium since the start of 2019.
