Liverpool will face Atletico Madrid in their next Champions League away fixture and they could be without key stars Alisson and Fabinho on October 19. Diego Simeone’s side faces the Premier League club for the first time since their March 2020 win at Anfield.
Both players have been called up for international action with Brazil next month. Brazil-Argentina encounter was abandoned after the pitch was invaded by Brazilian health officials citing a breach of Covid-19 guidelines in the country by UK based players on September 5.
