Follow all the action as Liverpool host Atalanta in the Champions League group stage this evening.

Jurgen Klopp’s side can ensure their place in the knockout rounds with a victory tonight, owing to a perfect run of form in the competition so far. Liverpool edged Ajax in a close-fought opening game before defeating Danish champions FC Midtjylland. The Reds then faced Atalanta earlier this month, dismantling the Serie A side in an imperious 5-0 win that all but secured their place in the last 16.

Atalanta, who reached the quarter-finals last season, still have everything to fight for in the group, though, with Gian Piero Gasperini’s side level second with Ajax. The Italians have enjoyed a steady if unspectacular start to the season domestically, taking 14 points from their opening eight games. Follow all the action below:
