Atalanta vs Liverpool (agg 3-0) – Europa League: Live score, team news and latest updates for Atalanta vs Liverpool and West Ham vs Bayer Leverkusen as Jurgen Klopp’s men need to produce another European miracle to overturn 3-0 deficit

It’s plain and simple, the Reds have a mammoth assignment in front of them tonight.

When the Reds took to the Anfield turf last week to face a side sixth in Serie A, no one could have foreseen the events that would unfold.

Liverpool hadn’t lost in 14 months at home, but that soon changed. They weren’t just beaten by Atalanta, they were battered while not being able to throw any counter-punches.

Fast forward three days and the Anfield crowd were left stunned once again when Eberechi Eze of Crystal dealt a huge blow to their title hopes, inflicting a second defeat on the Reds within a week.

Tonight is the chance for Liverpool to bounce back. Even if they aren’t to qualify tonight, a win would do them a huge amount of good for their domestic challenge.

The odds are certainly not in their favour, Atalanta showed their quality last week, and it wouldn’t be a surprise if they were to cause Liverpool more pain again.

But if anybody can turn this tie around, Liverpool can.
