Atalanta made to wait in Champions League

Atalanta will not know their Champions League fate either way tonight, as it’s very tight in Group D with Liverpool and Ajax.

They host Midtjylland this evening at 20.00 GMT.

La Dea and Ajax are on seven points each, while Liverpool have nine and Midtjylland are already out of the running on zero points.

While Liverpool could secure their qualification for the Round of 16 if they at least pick up a point against Ajax at Anfield, the situation behind them is more complex.

That is because the final match of the group will see Atalanta and Ajax go head-to-head in Amsterdam.

It’s in that game that ultimately the final spots will be decided.

Liverpool could already lock down the group winners’ spot if they beat Ajax and Atalanta fail to get the victory with Midtjylland.
