Atalanta vs Liverpool live updates: Europa League latest team news, line-ups and predictions

European comebacks are part of the Liverpool DNA and Klopp oversaw the last big one; against Barcelona in 2019. His side overturned a 3-0 first-leg deficit against Lionel Messi and Co in the Champions League to reach the final.

“I remember that I said (in 2019): ‘If we fail, then let’s fail in a most beautiful way’ and that’s how I see it again,” said Klopp, who initially joked that he already had a pre-match speech written.

“We want to win the game and if we want to win the game, we had better play good. If we play good, then we will have a chance to win it. After the game (last week), everyone in the stadium thought, ‘That’s it’. But since then, a week later, I don’t think everybody thinks it’s already decided.

“Let’s see what we can put on the pitch tomorrow. But my team meeting will not happen in front of the world in the press conference. If we win, the players will find a reason to tell the world what I said, and if we lose no one will want to hear.”
