Atletico will host the Reds in the first-leg of their Champions League round of 16 tie on Tuesday evening.
El Niño, who is loved by supporters from both clubs, was invited to watch the game from the VIP suite at the Metropolitano.
For his part, Torres has preferred to remain out of the media spotlight in the days running up to the game out of respect to both clubs.
Nevertheless he has accepted an offer from Atlético to attend the game at the Wanda Metropolitano. Torres hung up his boots last year.
