Jurgen Klopp has been majorly boosted this week after the returning to training of four key absentees Alisson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Stefan Bajcetic and Diogo Jota. The Reds are still fighting to add two more trophies to their cabinet this season and have got some much-needed depth now. Atalanta have been magnificent in the calendar year of 2024 but Gian Piero Gasperini’s side come into this one on the back of losing the first-leg of their Coppa Italia semi-final against Fiorentina before then losing to Cagliari in Serie A. Liverpool should win this first-leg, especially at Anfield.
