Atletico Madrid Jan Oblak And Liverpool Alison Becker are the best goalkeepers in the world and they will come face to face tonight in the Champions League.
Jan Oblak has raved about Alisson Becker’s qualities but he admits that he is hoping his Atletico Madrid side can ‘disturb’ the Liverpool shot-stopper tonight in the Champions League. Jan Oblak claimed that his goalkeeping counterpart was ‘the best’ in the world last season, as he helped Liverpool to European Cup glory in Madrid – Alisson moved to Merseyside during the summer of 2018 for £67 million.
The reds return to the place where they etched their names into the history books for the 7th time, but this time, they face much difficult task in trying to dislodge a Diego Simeone side that has rottweiler-like qualities to their play.
This is going to be a tough test for both parties but it is one that Liverpool already know the music to and one that isn’t over regardless of the situation. Liverpool’s comeback win against Barcelona last season is proof that whatever happens tonight, nothing will prepare Simeone’s men for a tough and gruelling second-leg encounter at Anfield. There will be a number of familiar faces on the show tonight, and in these coming weeks, none other than Diego Costa, and the currently injured Kieran Trippier.
The latter will miss tonight’s game, but there could be the possibility that Ex-Chelsea striker, Costa faces up against the world’s best in Virgil van Dijk.
Liverpool’s comeback win against Barcelona last season is proof that whatever happens tonight, nothing will prepare Simeone’s men for a tough and gruelling second-leg encounter at Anfield. Tonight’s game will be a massive and interesting game tonight.
