Champions League action continues Wednesday, with the global soccer world focusing on two marquee showdowns.

Like Tuesday’s matches, both contests will take place behind closed doors due to the spread of the coronavirus across Europe. That should make for a somewhat bizarre and eerie atmosphere inside the empty stadiums, both of which would normally feature raucous supporters for these all-important games.

Atletico at Liverpool

  • Atletico odds: +575
  • Liverpool odds: -182
  • Draw: +295
  • Over/Under: 2.5 (-106/-118)
  • Time: Wednesday, 4 p.m. ET

The highlighted showdown of the day takes place in Merseyside, when defending champion Liverpool hosts La Liga side Atletico Madrid. The Reds come into this match looking to avenge a 1-0 setback in the first leg of the Round of 16 matchup.

Liverpool, which is second in the Premier League with 60.96 expected goals this season, has a whole lot of history working in its favor entering this match. The Red have not lost a home Champions League match since 2014. That spells trouble for Atletico Madrid, which has struggled mightily away from Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.

Los Colchoneros is winless (0-4-2) in its last six road contests and has been even worse over even a longer stretch, picking up just two wins in its last 15 matches away from home across all competitions.

Add in the fact Liverpool has not been shut out once this season at Anfield across all competitions and the distinct edge sits with the hosts.
