Match background Only this chapter

The top two in Group D meet in Bergamo as Atalanta welcome six-time winners, and section leaders, Liverpool on Matchday 3.

• While the English champions have kept clean sheets in winning each of their first two fixtures, at Ajax (1-0) and at home to Midtjylland (2-0), Atalanta made light work of the Danish debutants with a 4-0 away win on the opening night, but then had to come from 2-0 down to salvage a point at home to Ajax thanks to Duván Zapata's double.

• This is the first game between the clubs, and only Atalanta's fifth against an English team.

Form guide
• Debutants in 2019/20, this is Atalanta's second succesive UEFA Champions League appearance after they finished third in Serie A last season.

• Initially it appeared as if the Bergamo club's first taste of the competition would prove brief, Atalanta losing their first three UEFA Champions League matches, against Dinamo Zagreb (0-4 a), Shakhtar Donetsk (1-2 h) and Manchester City (1-5 a). However, a point at home against City on Matchday 4 (1-1) proved the catalyst for a remarkable revival, the Italian side beating Dinamo 2-0 at home and Shakhtar 3-0 away to snatch second place in the group behind City.

• Even better was to follow in the round of 16, Atalanta beating Valencia 4-1 at home and 4-3 away with Josip Iličić becoming the first player to score four times in a UEFA Champions League knockout match in the latter fixture.

• Atalanta looked set to continue their magical run thanks to Mario Pašalić's first-half goal in their quarter-final against Paris Saint-Germain, but the French side struck twice in the closing moments to end their adventure.

• Defeat by Paris in Lisbon ended Atalanta's club record four-match winning streak in Europe.

• The Italian club have lost only five of their last 25 European games (W12 D8).

• This is Atalanta's 47th European match, and their eighth campaign in continental competition. They reached the European Cup Winners' Cup semi-finals in 1987/88 and the UEFA Cup quarter-finals three years later.

• The 2-1 loss to Shakhtar Donetsk on Matchday 2 last season is Atalanta's sole defeat in 17 European home matches (W8 D8), since a 2-1 loss against Belgian side Mechelen in the 1987/88 European Cup Winners' Cup semi-final second leg (2-4 aggregate). Those are their only defeats in their 22 home European matches (W12 D8).

• Their two games with City last season aside, Atalanta's only other fixtures against an English club came in the 2017/18 UEFA Europa League group stage, when they beat Liverpool's local rivals Everton 3-0 at home and 5-1 away. Alejandro Gómez scored in the home game in Reggio Emilia and Robin Gosens was on target on Merseyside.

• Liverpool were champions of England for the 19th time in 2019/20, their first league title since 1990.

• The Reds are in the UEFA Champions League group stage for the 13th time; they have only failed to progress to the last 16 or further three times.

• Jürgen Klopp's side finished top of Group E in 2019/20, recovering from losing their opening fixture 2-0 at Napoli to advance with 13 points ahead of the Italian club, who also drew 1-1 at Anfield. There were two wins against both Genk (4-1 a, 2-1 h) and Salzburg (4-3 h, 2-0 a), the latter success on Matchday 6 sealing progress.

• Liverpool had won their sixth European Cup in 2018/19, but their defence of the trophy came to a halt in the round of 16, Atlético de Madrid winning 1-0 in Spain and, after extra time, 3-2 at Anfield. The latter result ended Liverpool's 25-match unbeaten home run in Europe (W18 D7), since a 3-0 loss to Real Madrid on 22 October 2014, and was their first aggregate defeat in 12 two-legged knockout ties.

• Liverpool have won 11 of their last 17 European fixtures (D2 L4).

• The Reds have also won their last three away fixtures in the UEFA Champions League group stage, having lost the previous four.

• Last season's loss at Napoli made it three successive defeats in Italy for the Reds, who have nevertheless been beaten in only four of their last ten away games against Italian clubs, winning three.

• Liverpool have met Italian clubs in four European Cup finals, winning two (against Roma in 1984 and AC Milan in 2005) and losing two (against Juventus in 1985 and Milan in 2007).
