Liverpool v Atalanta live stream, BT Sport, Wednesday 25 November, 8.00pm GMT
Liverpool will book their place in the last 16 of the Champions League with victory over Atalanta on Wednesday.
Group D was considered a potentially tricky one for the Reds when the draw was made, but they have made light work of it so far. Victories over Ajax, Midtjylland and Atalanta have been achieved without so much as a goal conceded, leaving Liverpool on maximum points at the midway stage. Jurgen Klopp will be delighted by the way his team have taken to the challenge so far, particularly as wrapping up qualification early would give him an opportunity for rotation in Liverpool’s final two matches.
The Reds head into Wednesday’s meeting with Atalanta in confident mood following their superb 3-0 victory over Leicester at the weekend. Liverpool were excellent from start to finish against opponents who have made a fine start to the season, and they have so far coped well with the injuries to first-choice centre-backs Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez.
Atalanta look set to battle it out with Ajax for second place in Group D. Both teams have taken four points from the first nine on offer, and there is a chance that the runners-up spot could be decided by goal difference. Gian Piero Gasperini is an attack-minded manager, though, and he is unlikely to adopt a conservative approach here.
Van Dijk and Gomez are long-term absentees at centre-back, so Fabinho and Joel Matip are likely to continue at the heart of the defence. Trent Alexander-Arnold, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Xherdan Shaqiri, Jordan Henderson and Thiago Alcantara are also injured, while Mohamed Salah will miss out after testing positive for COVID-19.
Atalanta will be without Fabio Depaoli and Ruslan Malinovksy, while Mattia Caldara is a doubt due to injury. Gasperini could restore Mario Pasalic to the starting XI, with the former Chelsea man beginning the Spezia draw on the bench.
Kick-off is at 8.00pm GMT and the game is being shown on BT Sport 2 in the UK. See below for watching details where you are.

Use a VPN to watch Liverpool v Atalanta live stream from outside your country
We know, we know, this has crept up on you a bit. So what if you’ve organised a quick winter break and you’re out of the country for the first Champions League week of the season?
We can help. If you’re out of the country for this round of Champions League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address, and you’ll be blocked from watching.
But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
1. ExpressVPN (inc. 30-day, money-back guarantee)
The recommended VPN of choice. FourFourTwo’s brainy pals TechRadar love ExpressVPN's lightning-quick connections, security you can trust, and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS4 plus plenty more. It also comes with that money-back guarantee, has 24/7 support, is currently available for a 49% discount and with three months FREE. Grand.
2. Nord VPN (inc. 30-day, money-back guarantee)
A cheaper option; its cheapest package current averages at a titchy £2.29 per month.
3. IPVanish (inc. seven-day money-back guarantee)
Slightly more expensive but supports up to 10 devices, and you can pay up your hard-earned every three months if required.
