Atalanta’s 3-0 win at Anfield last week was the fourth time Liverpool have lost a European first-leg tie at home – and they will be aiming to come back and reach the next round for the first time.

This is the Reds’ 28th European quarter-final and if they can achieve a turnaround, would reach a 21st semi-final, extending their British record.

Doing so would also see Jürgen Klopp set a new club record of five European semi-finals as manager, exceeding the four each of Bill Shankly and Bob Paisley.

Klopp will take charge of Liverpool for the 91st time in European competition.
