They again succumbed to Liverpool in both their matches and are now in a dreadful situation as they hang by a thread. Porto will be hopeful of the Liverpool vs AC Milan match as that result will heavily impact their qualification chances.

Diego Simeone’s side lost on their own turf against AC Milan as Junior Messias’s pinpoint header in the 87th saw the Rossoneri take the match away and push Atletico Madrid at the dead bottom of the table. However, Atletico Madrid can still qualify if they manage to beat Porto and wait for the Liverpool vs AC Milan results.
Simeone’s men have suffered quite the fall from grace since finishing atop the pile in La Liga last term. A 2-1 league defeat at home to Mallorca at the weekend means it is just three wins from their last 10 in all competitions for Atletico, who have not kept a clean sheet away from home all season and have chosen the worst time to lose some of their defensive names to injury and suspension.
Felipe is banned following his matchday red card against Liverpool.
Stefan Savic, Jose Gimenez both are out injured.
Thomas Lemar rejoins the troops in the middle.
