Jurgen Klopp continues to juggle a host of injuries, especially in defence, so being able to put European commitments on the backburner until February will be welcome.
Atalanta were thumped 5-0 in the reverse fixture earlier in November and will be keen to avoid a similar humbling twice in a single month.
Liverpool vs Atalanta is scheduled for an 8pm GMT kick-off on Wednesday, November 25, 2020.
The match will be held behind closed doors at Anfield.
TV channel: The match will be televised on BT Sport.
Live stream: BT Sport subscribers will be able to watch the match online via the website or BT Sport app.
Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah is fit to face Atalanta but manager Jurgen Klopp is still awaiting updates on a number of other players.
Salah flew back from Egypt, where he had returned two positive Covid-19 tests, on Friday and was ruled out of Sunday’s win over Leicester but has subsequently tested negative and is back in contention.
The manager, however, does not yet know how soon the likes of Jordan Henderson (thigh), Thiago Alcantara (knee) and Xherdan Shaqiri (muscle) will be back.
