Atalanta vs Liverpool: Schedules and possible lineups in the Europa League

Atalanta dreams of the semifinals after surprising Liverpool in the first leg of the Europa League quarterfinals.

Atalanta and Liverpool will define this Thursday one of the semifinalists of the 2023/24 UEFA Europa League and the Italian squad is the favorite to advance to the next stage of the competition thanks to its unforgettable performance at Anfield.

Thursday, April 11, 2024 will be considered one of the happiest days in the history of Atalanta after beating Liverpool 0-3, which under Jurgen Klopp has established itself as one of the best teams in Europe . However, with two goals from Gianluca Scamacca and a score from Mario Psalic, Gian Piero Gasperini’s squad beat the Reds and are very close to qualifying for the semi-finals.

Looking ahead to the return match that will be played at the Gewiss Stadium, Gian Piero Gasperini indicated that they must play the second match of the series as if they had not won the first match and only with that attitude can they dream of their ticket to the next round.

“It is one of the most important games, if not the most important, in the history of Atalanta. But all these are things that are said on the eve of the game, in the game you have to know how to isolate yourself from everything. We have to play as if “we would not have won 3-0 in the first leg, knowing that we have to get a result and that the opponent is beatable,” he said at a press conference.

For his part, Jurgen Klopp recalled the comeback they staged in 2019 against Barcelona in the Champions League and pointed out that against Atalanta they will have to do their best if they want to overcome the tie.

“What is similar? The result, without a doubt. The performance, not really. We played an exceptional match at that time and lost 3-0 [en Barcelona] and no one knew how. I think we shouldn’t have lost the last game [contra el Atalanta] 3-0, but we weren’t as good as we were in that game [en Barcelona]. And we lost at home [la semana pasada] and now we’re out, that’s a big difference. It’s not really about comparing or anything like that. We are here and we will try to win tomorrow’s game, that’s all, and I think that’s what we should do. We’ll see if that’s possible,” he said.
