On Saturday, the Reds appeared to be on cruise control, leading 2-0 after only 24 minutes, but the Seagulls came back and earned a point.
Liverpool has lost position on the league leaders as a result of the two squandered points, and their confidence has been harmed heading into such a crucial European match against Atletico Madrid.
While we do not believe Liverpool will be underdogs on Wednesday, Brighton have shown a big gap in Liverpool's armour, which Diego Simeone might exploit.
Atletico Madrid vs. Liverpool: Always on the attack
When playing offensive football, Liverpool is lethal. But whenever they drop deep, things have not gone too well for them.
On Saturday, Brighton & Hove Albion took full advantage of this weakness. Following a 2-0 lead, Liverpool relaxed a little and preferred to sit and relax. This strategy plainly failed them, and someone like Atletico Madrid may take advantage of it even more on Wednesday.
Liverpool has scored 29 goals in ten league games this season, but they have also surrendered eight goals, the most of the top three teams. The Reds haven't kept a clean sheet in the UCL this season, even with Van Dijk in defence.
With nine points, the Reds are in first place in their group, so there's a good likelihood they won't take any chances on Wednesday. On the other side, with only four points, we anticipate Atletico to put all they've got at them.
If Liverpool is not to lose two games in a row, Jurgen Klopp must ensure that his team plays its natural attacking game rather than trying something new and sitting back to keep the game alive.
