The Reds head into Anfield trailing 1-0 against Atletico Madrid, with Diego Simeone revealing via quotes by This Is Anfield that he will be taking a defensive stance to tonight’s massive fixture, as the Argentine aims to preserve his La Liga side’s slender lead over the reigning Champions League holders.
Will Liverpool beat Atletico Madrid?
With Atletico having a reputation for the past few years as one of the best defensive teams in all of Europe, it is no wonder that some Liverpool fans on social media were sarcastically shocked to hear what Simeone plans to do tonight in what is a must-win game for the Merseyside club.
Here’s what a few Red supporters had to say about Simeone’s comments on Twitter…
He has no option nor the attacking prowess to go head to head with us at Anfield … he literally has no option but park the bus .. it is on us to break them
