Alisson Ruled out of Atleti Tie and Merseyside Derby
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Alisson will miss tonight’s Champions League round of 16 second leg tie with Atletico Madrid.
The Reds trail Atleti 1-0 after a first leg defeat at the Wanda Metropolitana three weeks ago and will be without the Brazilian as they seek to overturn the deficit.
Klopp also confirmed that Alisson will miss Monday night’s Merseyside derby with Everton at Goodison Park in the Premier League.
“Ally (Alisson) will not be ready so we know for sure that it's too early,” Klopp said in his pre Atleti press conference.
Alisson also missed Saturday’s 2-1 win over Bournemouth at Anfield on Saturday after picking up a hip injury in training.
He was also not selected for Brazil’s upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Bolivia and Peru later this month.
