Atletico Madrid received a big boost ahead of Liverpool in the Champions League – .

Atletico Madrid have reportedly received positive news on a number of key players ahead of their clash with Liverpool on Tuesday.
The Reds will travel to Wanda Metropolitano for a crucial Champions League encounter, as they look to secure three wins in three group stage games having previously beaten AC Milan and Porto.

Atletico appear to be set to be the Reds’ most likely challenger to dominate the group, as they have so far taken four points in their encounters with the same teams.

While Liverpool have their own injury issues, Atletico look set to welcome some key men back to the squad.

According to Sports world (h / t Football Espana), star center-back Jose Gimenez and dynamo midfielder Marcos Llorente both went through a full training session before the game.

There were doubts about the fitness of both players ahead of the competition and previously there were concerns that manager Diego Simeone would have to field midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia as an emergency center-back.

Summer signing Matheus Cunha would also be available after recovering from a recent stroke.

A shortage at the center-back is something Liverpool know all about, as they were without Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip and Joe Gomez for long stretches of the previous campaign, meaning Fabinho and Jordan Henderson returned to defense often from their midfield.

Van Dijk, Gomez and Matip are now back in great physical shape and the team is performing at a much higher standard. Liverpool produced another impressive performance in the Premier League on Saturday, as they sent off a lackluster Watford 5-0.

The meeting with Atletico should be a much more difficult mission for Liverpool. Not only do the Spanish champions have key men available again, but they haven’t played in La Liga this weekend, which means they should be fresh for Jurgen Klopp’s side to visit.
