Europa League: How to watch Atalanta vs Liverpool quarter-final second leg

The underdogs from Bergamo shocked the world in the first encounter but Liverpool will hope to stage another famous European comeback

Very few of the world's most popular sports betting sites could have predicted that Atalanta would thrash Liverpool at Anfield last week in their Europa League quarter-final first leg, but that's exactly what happened.

In a surprising turn of events, Atalanta stunned Liverpool with a 3-0 win in the first leg at Anfield. The match's star was former West Ham striker Gianluca Scamacca, who scored twice. This leaves departing Reds boss Jurgen Klopp and his team facing an uphill battle as they prepare to try and stage an unlikely comeback in Bergamo.

Liverpool now has a significant challenge ahead in the second leg of their UEFA Europa League clash with Atalanta. After losing 3-0 at Anfield, they must regroup and strategize for their next encounter.

Gianluca Scamacca's impressive performance left Jurgen Klopp needing nothing short of a miracle to turn things around. The Reds' misery was confounded by a 1-0 loss to Crystal Palace in the Premier League at the weekend which piled more pressure on them to get their campaign back on track swiftly.

Despite this setback, it is worth noting that European comebacks are something of a speciality for Liverpool under Klopp's leadership. He has orchestrated some incredible nights at Anfield during his tenure, including an iconic win over Barcelona in the 2019 Champions League semi-final after losing 3-0 in the first leg.

However, if another comeback is on the cards this time around against Atalanta, Klopp will need to promptly address his team's leaky defence or risk seeing their dreams shattered again.
