Atalanta Prediction – Can Atalanta get off the mark?

Wednesday night’s hosts, Atalanta, firmly sit rock bottom of Group C having failed to pick up any points from their opening 3 matches of this Champions League campaign and now face a tough upcoming fixture against the group leaders, Manchester City.

3 defeats on the trot have virtually ended Atalanta’s hopes of a top two finish and indeed, they’ll now struggle to even qualify for the knockout phase of the Europa League following losses to Dinamo Zagreb, Shakhtar Donetsk and Manchester City.

The manner of Atalanta’s defeats has also been extremely concerning as they’ve been totally outplayed, conceding 4 goals to Dinamo Zagreb, 2 against Shakhtar Donetsk and a 5-1 hammering at Manchester City.

This has resulted in the Italian hosts shipping a total of 11 goals in these 3 disastrous matches, and further punishment could be heading their way when Pep Guardiola’s side come to town on Wednesday night.

This is Atlanta’s first foray into the Champions League and it’s been a tough baptism of fire for the Italian club who will have their work cut out against City tonight.

Manchester City Prediction – Can Man City win four on trot?

There’s seemingly nothing standing in Manchester City’s way at the moment in terms of their European exploits as Pep Guardiola’s side sit top of Group C not only boasting a 100% winning record but also holding a valuable 5-point cushion over the chasing teams of Dinamo Zagreb and Shakhtar Donetsk who both possess 4 points apiece.

It’s hard to see Manchester City being caught now and the visitors look set to qualify for the knockout phase having already registered 3 wins on the trot with victories against Shakhtar Donetsk 3-0, Dinamo Zagreb 2-0 and a crushing 5-1 win over tonight’s hosts, Atalanta.

Overall, Manchester City have won 10 of their last 12 Champions League ties, while losing just 2 of their last 8 away ties which, incidentally, were both against fellow Premier League sides, Liverpool and Tottenham respectively.

The visitors hold an important psychological advantage over Atalanta as well, having inflicted a heavy 5-1 defeat over their Italian counterparts on Matchday 3, and although we’re unlikely to see a similar scoreline here, Manchester City look the most likely to walk away with all three points here.


Key-Facts – Atalanta vs Manchester City

  • Atalanta have lost all 3 of their matches to date in Group C
  • Manchester City hold a 100% record after winning 3 matches on the trot
  • Manchester City have won 10 of their last 12 Champions League ties overall


Betting Tips Verdict

Despite being at home, Atalanta face a mountain to climb here, while Manchester City will seek a fourth win on the trot.
