Liverpool travel to Atalanta on Thursday evening for the second of two Europa League quarter-final ties.

Atalanta vs Liverpool key betting stats

Here are some key stats to keep in mind as you prepare to make your selections ahead of the game in Italy:

  • In UEFA Cup and Europa League history, there have been 132 previous instances where the away side has won the first leg of a two-legged knockout tie by three or more goals. None of these deficits were overturned in the second leg.
  • Atalanta’s only home win against English opposition was against Everton in September 2017 (3-0). Meanwhile, their only defeat against English opposition came at the hands of Liverpool in November 2020 (5-0). They have drawn their other two home games against English sides.
  • Liverpool won their most recent European away game 5-1 at Sparta Prague. The Reds have not won back-to-back away outings in the Uefa Cup or Europa League since 2002-03 when they beat both Vitesse and Auxerre.
