Even though the Reds have a history of overcoming insurmountable deficits on the continent, last week’s first match at Anfield left La Dea speechless with a 3-0 victory.

Atalanta BC possible starting lineup:

Musso; De Roon, Djimsiti, Hien; Zappacosta, Pasalic, Ederson, Ruggeri; Koopmeiners; Scamacca, De Ketelaere

Liverpool’s possible starting lineup:

Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson; Szoboszlai, Mac Allister, Elliott; Salah, Jota, Diaz

Our Predictions

Liverpool to win

Liverpool, who need to step it up to make it to the semi-finals, may use the ice-cool Jota to reawaken their creative side, and Atalanta’s home defense has often been subpar.

Atalanta will take advantage of opportunities presented by Gasperini’s players to guarantee that Klopp will depart Anfield without ever hoisting the Europa League trophy, even though Liverpool may secure a consolation victory that evening.

West Ham Vs. Bayer Leverkusen

Bayer Leverkusen will proudly wear their Bundesliga champions’ medals when they face West Ham United in Thursday night’s second leg of their Europa League quarter-final.

Even though their hosts had previously won a comeback game against a Bundesliga team in 2024, the freshly crowned German champions cruised by David Moyes’s side 2-0 in last week’s first leg.

West Ham United’s possible starting lineup:

Fabianski; Zouma, Ogbonna, Cresswell; Coufal, Alvarez, Soucek, Ward-Prowse, Johnson; Kudus, Antonio

Bayer Leverkusen’s possible starting lineup:

Hradecky; Kossounou, Tah, Stanisic; Frimpong, Xhaka, Palacios, Grimaldo; Wirtz, Adli; Boniface

Our Predictions

Bayer Leverkusen to win

Alonso’s team may be exhausted after the weekend’s victory celebrations at the London Stadium. Still, the German champions are almost completely healthy and have many players to choose from, so they pose a significant threat to West Ham’s battered team.

The Irons’ continental trip should come to a disappointing conclusion as they continue to let in shots at an alarming rate and still miss star player Bowen. Meanwhile, the unstoppable Leverkusen are determined to find a domestic and European double.
