Atalanta vs Dinamo Zagreb Live Stats & Betting Odds

Atalanta Prediction – Can Atalanta keep slim hopes alive?

Having lost 3 of their first 4 matches in Group C, Italian outfit, Atalanta, sit bottom of the group with just 1 point to their name which was thanks to a 1-1 draw at home against Manchester City on Matchday 4.

Atalanta got their Champions League campaign off to the worst of starts as they lost their opening 3 group matches on the trot with defeats to Dinamo Zagreb (4-0 away), 2-1 to Shakhtar Donetsk (at home) and a heavy 5-1 thrashing away at Manchester City.

The solid point in their last match in the corresponding fixture against Manchester City should at least give Atalanta a glimmer of hope ahead of this clash with Dinamo Zagreb, and with 2nd placed Shakhtar having to travel to Manchester City tonight, the door is perhaps ajar for Atalanta to make up some valuable ground.

That said, a straight win for Atalanta seems unlikely but the prospect of both teams scoring looks a reasonable one – both of Atalanta’s home matches have seen both teams score, while 7 of Atalanta’s last 8 matches in all competitions have also seen both teams hit the back of the net.

Dinamo Zagreb Prediction – Can Dinamo Zagreb sneak through back door?

A resounding 4-0 home win over tonight’s hosts, Atalanta, at their Stadion Maksimir saw Dinamo Zagreb get their Champions League campaign off to an impressive start, but they’ve since picked up just 2 points from the subsequent 9 on offer in Group C.

A 2-0 defeat away from home at Manchester City was followed by back-to-back draws with Shakhtar Donetsk (away and home) in 2-2 and 3-3 draws respectively, but these valuable points have helped maintain Dinamo Zagreb’s challenge for a top two finish in the group and progression into the knockout stages of the competition.

Dinamo Zagreb will also be very aware that their closest rivals, Shakhtar Donetsk (who are also on 5 points), have to travel to face Group C leaders, Manchester City, so this also opens the door up for Dinamo Zagreb to get a jump on the current 2nd placed team with a win here.

In addition, Dinamo Zagreb have scored in 7 of their last 8 away ties in the Champions League and they’ll no doubt fancy their chances of getting a result against this Atalanta outfit whom they thrashed 4-0 at home on Matchday 1.


Key-Facts – Atalanta vs Dinamo Zagreb

  • 7 of Atalanta’s last 8 matches in all competitions have seen both teams score
  • Dinamo Zagreb have scored in 7 of their last 8 away ties in the Champions League
  • Both teams need a win to further their ambitions of a top two finish in Group C


Betting Tips Verdict

Both teams have plenty of incentive to grab all three points here so we could see both score in this clash.
