Atalanta beats Liverpool in England and comes out ahead for a place

With their minds divided between the fight for the Premier League title and the quarter-finals of the Europa League, Liverpool played poorly and were overrun by Atalanta at Anfield.

The Italian team had less possession of the ball throughout the game, but took advantage of each attack as if it were their last. 

Thus, with two goals from striker Scamacca and one from Pasalic, followed by two mistakes from goalkeeper Kelleher, Atalanta advanced to the semi-final stage of the continental competition.

As a result, Liverpool decided to save some names in the duel against Atalanta, such as Salah, Luis Diáz and full-backs Alexander-Arnold and Robertson, and were unable to perform in the same way as in the Premier League. 

With many mistakes, especially from goalkeeper Kelleher, the English team succumbed to a lethal Atalanta that did not waste its attacks.

Now, needing to win by three goals to take the place to penalties or by four to qualify directly, Liverpool visits Atalanta next Thursday (18).
