LIVERPOOL couldn't break through Atletico Madrid's defensive wall and their Champions League defence is hanging by a thread.
Jurgen Kopp's men were out-thought in a 1-0 defeat and while it's only half-time an away goal for the Spaniards would leave the Reds with a mountain to climb.
As a result, Man City are into 4-1 favourites to win the Champions League with the holders out to 11-2.
Liverpool will have a big and emotional crowd on their side and Klopp's still confident they'll qualify but it could be a nervy night at Anfield.
In the other tie, the goals took a while to come but eventually I got the three needed, with Erling Haaland's two for Dortmund landing Scott a nice members' bet success.
So, in the end, my double was beaten by Liverpool losing and my treble downed by an incredible Scottish Cup tie between Motherwell and St Mirren.
Goals were expected to be at a premium there but Saints led 4-1 at half-time, were pegged back to 4-4 and then won on penalties.
They now face the winners of Killie vs Aberdeen and I'm again risking unders here with the sides having fought out two 0-0 draws this season and five of six meetings at Rugby Park have gone under 2.5.
I've posted a separate Champions League preview where my tips are reasoned.
