Loads of Liverpool fans have responded to comments made by Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone, who said that he comes armed with the “Anfield formula” that can knock the reigning champions out of the Champions League.
The Reds will face the 2014 La Liga champions on Wednesday in the second leg of our European clash and face an uphill battle after a 1-0 defeat at the Wanda Metropolitano.
Marca revealed that Simeone has created the “Anfield formula”, which will help the Madrid-based outfit progress in the competition, designed to expose the frailties in the Liverpool defence, obviously forgetting what happened to Barcelona when they came to Anfield last season.
Will Liverpool beat Atletico Madrid?
With this in mind, supporters laughed at Simeone and made their feelings clear on social media. One fan said that his side will be “sitting ducks”, while another suggested that opposing managers never seem to learn.
The overriding thoughts from the Kop faithful suggest that Liverpool will overcome Atleti and advance to the quarter-finals for the third season in a row.
The Klopp effect > The Anfield formula 💥

Yeah, but they’ve scored less league goals than Bournemouth this season. Sitting ducks, come on Reds

Every team comes with a game plan. Into every game. They all aim to exploit weaknesses rather than playing to the opponent’s strength. U can say exactly the same thing about Liverpool’s approach on Wednesday…..🤷♂️🤷🏻🤷🏻🤷🏻🤷🏻♀️
