The Champions League powers on as the two Group D favorites face off again Liverpool host Atalanta at Anfield.

Liverpool still are in the midst of an unprecedented injury crisis. However, it doesn’t seem to matter. They keep piling up impressive results. Will that continue on Wednesday?

Here’s a Liverpool vs Atalanta Champions League preview.

Earlier this month, Liverpool shredded Atalanta 5-0 in Italy. Diogo Jota netted a hat-trick and Mo Salah and Sadio Mane chipped in a goal a piece.

It would be ambitious to think Liverpool could duplicate that performance. They still have 8-9 first-teamers out injured. However, Jurgen Klopp is showing just how deep and versatile his squad is. They’ve overcome their maladies with striking results.

Liverpool potential starting XI vs Atalanta

Look for Klopp to go back to his trusted 4-3-3 as Mo Salah returns to the line-up.

Formation: 4-3-3

Alisson, Neco Williams, Joel Matip, Fabinho, Andy Robertson, Curtis Jones, Gini Wijnaldum, James Milner, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, Mo Salah

With limited healthy attacking options, expect Klopp to bring either Salah or Jota off the bench. Divock Origi and Takumi Minamino should see some playing time as well.

Prediction

It won’t be a 5-0 paddling again, but expect a confident Liverpool 3-1 win.
