atletico have lost their last 3 games in la liga, but they were to sevilla, real madrid, and barcelona. all 3 games were at the vicente calderon too, so it's tempting to plump for liverpool here. however, liverpool could be missing fernando torres, even though el nino himself is eager to play against his former employers. for atletico, they will be featuring two ex-koppers in luis garcia and florent sinama-pongolle, though both are likely to feature from the bench as impact susbstitutes late on. i really do not see atletico losing 4 in a row at home, while liverpool's unbeaten run has gone on for too long.

Eddy's prediction: $5 on atletico madrid level @ 1.875 = $9.375

Liverpool have come from behind a grand total of 5 times this season to win the game. That speaks of the confidence running through the side. Together with this being a Champions League match, in which Liverpool often performs very well in, I think that a bet on Liverpool is a great choice. Kuyt is in form and will probably bag a goal here as he loves to pop up with important goals for Liverpool. Even without Torres, I feel that Liverpool will somehow win this one, or at least draw it.

Roland's prediction: $5 on Liverpool level @ 1.975 = $9.875
