Former Liverpool midfielder Luis Garcia thinks the Reds “are going to go through” ahead of the Champions League clash against Atletico Madrid.

Diego Simeone’s side have celebrated their 1 – 0 win over the rivals at Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in the Champions League last-16 first leg due to Saul Niguez’s goal.

The two sides are going to face each other for the second leg on Thursday night.

Ahead of the clash, Garcia has shared his thoughts, saying: “The crowd always helps the home team. Simeone knows how to deal with these kinds of situations. They still think they can make it. Liverpool have the power. More for the journalists and supporters – Borussia Dortmund, Barcelona, Istanbul and Olympiacos.”

“When you are on the field you’re not thinking, ‘We’ve done it before so we’re going to do it now.’ 100 per cent is not going to be enough. Both teams have quality players, both teams can score goals. But at this moment, Liverpool – even though they are down on the score – I think they are going to go through.”
