Any chance Leipzig is good enough get something off City?
Tough group but we should still advance. Agreed about not meeting Atletico in the knockouts.
No easy games in this group. Porto always seem to find themselves in the last 16 at least. Hopefully not again this season. Athletico Madrid are a really strong team and a nightmare to play against. AC Milan are a huge name that everyone will be up for, and then we will blow them away because they are actually not all that good.
We genuinely owe Atlético for the last exit from this competition for it was then that Anfield’s long running invincibility was shattered. I’d also be wary of both AC Milan and Porto. These are teams with Champions League pedigree and will make life uncomfortable for us.
I know. Disaster on the night.
If we can't beat Milan & Porto, then we didn't deserve to be in the CL.We'll be right.
Milan have the name but they’re far from the team we fought with in ‘05/‘07 or as majestic as they were in the 90s. Plus they’ve lost their keeper to PSG(?). They did have a good finish to the end of their seasoning Serie A, but let’s not forget, Ole and his crowd did ‘em over 2 legs in the Europa League. Not certain how long since they’ve been in the CL.
I wouldn’t see them as good as, say, Leicester. They’re probably the equivalent of West Ham or Everton. In other words, we should win at home and maybe a draw/win away.
Liverpool have the fourth-best chances of winning the Champions League this season. That’s according to one data analysis outfit.
This comes from FiveThirtyEight. The analysis group believe Liverpool have the fourth-best chances of winning the Champions League this season.
That’s after the Reds landed in a particularly difficult group. They’ll feature alongside Atletico Madrid, FC Porto and AC Milan – three opponents who could cause them real problems.
Thus FTE give Liverpool around a 9% chance of lifting the trophy at the end of it all. Only Manchester City (16%), Bayern Munich and Chelsea (both 11%) rank better.
As for getting out of the group? 77%. That’s surprisingly high – fifth-highest, in fact – given the strength of that group.
They also rate Liverpool as having a 49% chance of topping their group. That’s above Atletico, who only have a 29% chance.
the PSG, Napoli, Red Star group was harder than this draw. Yeah we squeaked through...but we did it.

So how were clubs supposed to deal with this fixtures list with key players in quarantine?
We’ll be fine.
Tough draw, but one that should still see Liverpool advance to the knock out rounds.
Porto (A) days before our game vs Manu
Atletico (A) days before our game vs Shitty
I admire everyone's positivity, but I think Milan are being dismissed too easily. hope I'm completely wrong of course.
Who has the TV for the CL this time around?
I'm not dismissing anyone...I think that is a tough draw...LFC will have to be "on" to progress to the knockouts.
Athletico with Simeone will play exactly how LFC don't like to play...slow the game down, roll on the ground every time a player walks by, kick 'em when the ref isn't looking...
Porto and Milan will follow suit...I'm just glad that we play them first (before Athletico), and super glad we host AC Milan for the opener. Anfield will be ROCKIN'!
Liverpool lost to Belgrade not too long ago. I think a group where you don't have to go to Russia and know going in you can't overlook anyone is probably good for this side.
While it does look like one of the tougher groups this season, if this Liverpool can't beat Porto and Milan home and away they honestly don't deserve to go through as group winners.
You could win 3 and lose 3 and top this group
