LIVE UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE Atletico Madrid v Liverpool (Kick-off 8.00pm). Darragh Maloney presents coverage of the matchday three Group B fixture at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano. Liverpool have experienced mixed fortunes at this venue, as it was the setting for their sixth European title when they defeated Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 in the 2019 final, but a season later they lost 1-0 here to Atletico in the last 16, before going out 4-2 on aggregate. This is only the seventh meeting between these two teams, and the visitors don’t have a strong record against their Spanish opposition. The English side have only ever beaten the Madrid team once, which was a 2-1 Europa League victory back in April 2010. Plus, highlights of the rest of this evening’s fixtures. (S)
