As Diego Simeone's Atletico Madrid prepare to face Liverpool in the Champions League next week, there has been good and bad news for the Spanish team ahead of the clash.

Liverpool had also asked the Premier League if they could reschedule the Premier League fixture against Watford due to the involvement of Alisson Becker and Fabinho for Brazil but their request was turned down.

The two teams line up in a Group B clash with Liverpool hoping to keep up their 100% record at the top of the standings and push them closer to qualifying for the last 16.

Due to the ongoing international fixtures involving South American players, La Liga have taken the decision to postpone Atleti's league match at the weekend against Granada.

Another central defender Jose Maria Gimenez was injured playing for his country Uruguay and according to the Liverpool Echo is unlikely to be fit to take the pitch.

This will give Simeone's team more time to rest and prepare for the fixture with the Reds ahead of Tuesday's match.

There is no doubt that any game against a Simeone team will be a difficult one.
