Liverpool will be hoping to transfer their extraordinary domestic form to the Champions League as they take on Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano.

It's the first time the Reds will return to the arena since they clinched their first European title against Tottenham back in June.

Jurgen Klopp will know not to take Atletico lightly though, having made the final in 2014 and 2016 under Diego Simeone.

Despite their pedigree in the competition, the Spanish giants have struggled domestically and scraped through their Champions League group on the final matchday.

It promises to be a fascinating tactical battle and one of the ties of the round. Here's how to tune into the game...
