Atletico Madrid vs Liverpool: How to watch in Malaysia, Singapore & Philippines, TV channel, free live stream, kickoff time and squad news
Atletico Madrid are up against defending champions Liverpool as the UEFA Champions League knockout stages get under way again this Wednesday.
The Rojiblancos are at home to Jurgen Klopp’s charges as they seek to establish an advantage in the first leg of the Round of 16.
This is the first time these two sides are playing each other after the 2009-10 Europa League semifinal where Atletico prevailed on away goals after the two-legged tie finished 2-2 on aggregate, with Diego Forlan playing a starring role.
However, this time at the Wanda Metropolitano, it will be Liverpool who will start as favourites.
The Premier League leaders have been in sublime form domestically, holding a comfortable lead over Manchester City and Leicester City, while progressing through the group stages with relative ease.
Atletico, meanwhile, have struggled to keep up with Real Madrid and Barcelona in La Liga and did not have an easy ride in the group stages versus Juventus and Bayer Leverkusen.

Atletico Madrid team news and injuries
|Position||Atletico Madrid squad|
|Defenders||Sime Vrsaljko, Stefan Savic, Felipe, Renan Lodi|
|Midfielders||Thomas Lemar, Saul Niguez, Marcos Llorente, Koke|
|Forwards||Vitolo, Angel Correa|

Liverpool squad, lineup and team news
|Defenders||Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil Van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Andy Robertson|
|Midfielders||Jordan Henderson, Fabinho, Georginio Wijnaldum|
|Forward||Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane|
Sadio Mane is a slight injury doubt, given the trouble with his hamstring recently, but is expected to make it in time, as is James Milner. Xherdan Shaqiri, meanwhile, faces a race against time to fully recover.
The domestic form of both sides has been in clear contrast this season.
Diego Simeone’s side have struggled due to injuries, with the likes of Joao Felix, Alvaro Morata and Diego Costa all suffering injuries in the lead up to this game. Atletico have scored just 25 goals in the league from 24 matches and have had difficulties to find the back of the net. Perhaps, the impending return of Costa and Morata might boost their firepower.
Liverpool, on the other hand, have been freescoring and also water-tight in defence. Led by Virgil Van Dijk and with Alisson Becker between the sticks, the Reds are in ominous form. However, their trump cards have been the full-backs – Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson. Both of them are key to the team’s playing style and regularly pop up with dangerous crosses from the wings.
Atletico will need to deal with that danger, if they are to gain an advantage going into the second leg.
