Stats: Why Atletico can upset Liverpool in the UCL

Stats: Why Atletico can be confident of upsetting Liverpool in the UCL last 16

February 17, 2020 By Ali M.
Los Rojiblancos will host the Reds in one of two games kicking off this season's round of 16.

The UEFA Champions League is set to spring back into action this midweek, with Atletico vs Liverpool being one of two matches kicking off the round of 16 this Tuesday.

This is one of several highly-anticipated knockout stage clashes, with Simeone's struggling side set to welcome Klopp's high-flying crew for the first leg. With only one win in their last seven matches, form does not favor Los Rojiblancos. The Merseyside giants' first team, on the other hand, have not lost a single game since the 2-0 defeat at Napoli in mid-September.

Despite this, it is not all grim news for Atletico. One needs to look no further than the stats, form aside, for a glimmer of hope for the Spanish giants. Here are the figures that back the Madrid giants to upset the Premier League leaders.

Atletico's record in Europe against English clubs

Atletico are no strangers to English clubs in European competitions. Their most recent encounter with a Premier League side came two seasons ago against Arsenal in the Europa League semi-final, winning 2-1 on aggregate en route to lifting the title. This means they are victorious in eight of their 10 two-legged clashes with English clubs, being eliminated by only Derby County in 1974/75 and Bolton Wanderers in 2007/08 in the UEFA Cup.

The last time they met Liverpool

The last time these two sides met was in the 2009/10 UEFA Europa League semi-finals. The Spanish giants eliminated the Reds on away goals, winning 1-0 at home before losing 2-1 at Anfield to go through 2-2 on aggregate. This was only one of two encounters, with their first run-in coming in the 2008/09 Champions League group stage with both the home and away clashes ending 1-1.

Their record at home in the knockout stage

Last season, Simeone's men played only one knockout stage game, being eliminated by Juventus after that unforgettable Cristiano hat-trick. Despite the exit, they won in Madrid 2-0, extending their unbeaten home run in the knockout stage to 13 games (W8, D5). The last time they lost in the Spanish capital after the group stage was back in 1996/97 against Ajax, going down 3-2 in the quarter-finals – 4-3 on aggregate.
