With a completely injury-free team to choose from, Atlético Madrid manager Diego Simeone has no fitness issues to report ahead of this clash.
Luis Suarez is a controversial footballer who plays for La Liga club Barcelona as a striker. The Uruguay forward moved to Europe in 2006, signing a deal with Groningen.
After scoring 10 goals in 27 league appearances for the club in the 2006/2007 Eredivisie campaign, he joined Ajax at the end of the season. The prolific striker scored no less than 81 goals in 110 appearances for Ajax and, as a result, Liverpool chiefs decided to sign him on 31 January 2011.
Suarez became the club's most expensive signing and he produced thrilling performances in the Anfield outfit between 2011 and 2014.
Liverpool were on the verge of winning the 2013/2014 Premier League trophy, but Steven Gerrard slipped in the decider against Chelsea and they ended up finishing the season in second place in the table.
In 2014 Suarez joined Barcelona and he became the top scorer in the 2015/2016 La Liga campaign. He also won the 2013/2014 Premier League Golden Boot and in 2011 he won the Copa America trophy with Uruguay.
Founded in 1892, Liverpool is one of the most famous English clubs in the world.
The Reds have a high-level rivalry with Everton and there are always fireworks when the two teams face each other in the Merseyside derby.
The Reds welcome their opponents at Anfield and it should be noted that they have won 18 first division trophies. Liverpool were on the verge of lifting the 2014/2015 Premier League trophy, but Steven Gerrard slipped in the decider against Chelsea and left the Reds titleless.
Liverpool won one of their last Champions League trophies in 2005, with the team coming from three goals down to beat Milan in a historic clash in Istanbul.
The Reds have won six European Cups and it is no surprise that they are considered one of Europe's biggest clubs.
The likes of Steven Gerrard, Robbie Fowler, Paul Ince, Ian Rush, Graeme Souness, Sami Hyypia and Luis Suarez are some of the most famous footballers who have represented the club over the years. The club's anthem is You'll Never Walk Alone and their shirt color is red.
We are of the view that Liverpool will most likely get a lot of shots on goal and make it count.
On the other hand, Atlético Madrid can struggle to find their own net, but we are glad they scored here.
We predict a comfortable 3-1 win for Liverpool at the end of the game.

Predicted Score Liverpool vs Atletico Madrid: 3-1
