Jurgen Klopp's men will draw inspiration from the manner in which they overturned a 0-3 deficit against Barcelona last year when they host Atletico Madrid on Wednesday night at Anfield.
The deficit this time is a much less daunting 0-1.
The Reds failed to recover from Saul Niguez’s opportunist 4th minute goal at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium, Madrid, a fortnight ago in the face of some resolute defending.
Diego Simeone will once again try working out the dour, defensive tactics he used to choke up the Liverpool attack in the first leg.
Even with 73 per cent of the possession, the Reds couldn't land a single shot on target.
At Anfield, Liverpool will once again depend on the attacking trio of Mohammad Salah, Roberto Firmnino and Sadio Mane to give them at least a couple of goals which is what they will need if they are to progress to the next round.
The worst thing that could happen to the reigning European champions is the possibility of Atletico scoring at Anfield.
Klopp will have the same side that featured in Madrid with the exception of Alisson who is out for at least nine weeks after sustaining a hip injury. Adrian takes his place between the posts.
Form-wise, Liverpool scored their first win in four outings when they beat Bournemouth 2-1 in a Premier League fixture on Saturday. Prior to that, they suffered a shock 0-3 defeat to Watford, ousted at the hands of Chelsea from the FA Cup and the first leg Champions League loss in Spain.
Atletico travel to Anfield on the back of a 2-2 draw with Sevilla on Saturday, making it six games unbeaten in all competitions.
In the Champions League, they started well with two wins in three in the Group stages but lost their way straight after.
Atletico have been poor away from home in the Champions League.
Over their last six road trips in the competition, they have won just twice in their last 12 away matches.
However, the ray of hope for the travelling fans is the club's good record travelling to England, having drawn 1-1 on each of their last three visits to the country and remaining unbeaten in the last four.
But Liverpool's record at Anfield, too, is formidable, especially against Spanish clubs.
The Reds have won 4 of their last 6 matches against visitors from the Iberian nation at the venue.
The Reds are now unbeaten at home in the Champions League since a 3-0 loss to Real Madrid in 2014. Which is why bookmakers are backing the Merseyside club to take the March 11th’s game with a margin of 2-0 and advance to the Round of 8.
However, it would be foolish to rule out the possibility of Atletico scoring, in which case the odds could well dramatically reverse.
