Manchester United remain the only team to have claimed the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League trophies in the same season, but the odds have tumbled on Liverpool landing the Treble bet this term.
The Reds were 150/1 in this market at the start of the season, but have been cut to just 16/1 following an outstanding campaign so far.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are running away with the Premier League and seem all set to wrap up that title in record time.
Liverpool made hard work of getting through their Champions League group, but a 2-0 victory away to RB Salzburg eventually earned them top spot.
Atletico Madrid will provide stiff opposition in the first knockout round, but the Merseysiders will have fond memories of visiting Wanda Metropolitano ahead of the opening leg.
They beat Tottenham at this venue in last season’s final, although Klopp accepts the atmosphere will be very different for this tie.
“Madrid is the place where we only have fantastic memories, all of us, so that’s great, but this time we play Atletico there and it’s their home ground,” he told his club’s official website.
“I think we had the home dressing room in that game. Maybe we can ask them; can we have that dressing room again! It was really nice. It was full with Liverpool signs, but I think they’ve got rid of them.
“It is fantastic. What can I say? I had one of the best nights of my life in this stadium, but this time – first and foremost – we have to go there to work and try our best.”
Will Klopp focus enough on FA Cup?
Liverpool are also through to the fifth round of the FA Cup, but many will see this as their most vulnerable event.
Klopp played a youthful line-up when edging out neighbours Everton 1-0 in round three and again when only just scrambling past League One Shrewsbury via a replay.
How he approaches a tricky trip to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea next up remains to be seen.
Chairman Tom Werner reflected on this season’s success by stating: “I am pinching myself, but we haven’t done the job yet.
“I keep saying that we really need to savour this because I appreciate the record we have achieved so far and I don’t think it is going to come along quickly again.”
Liverpool have won three major trophies in a season twice before.
They won the league title, the League Cup and the European Cup in 1984, plus the League Cup, the FA Cup and the UEFA Cup in 2001.
However, they were denied from landing the ‘real’ Treble bet back in 1977, when league and European Cup triumphs were split by an FA Cup final defeat – ironically against Manchester United.
