Manchester United and Atalanta will face each other in the Champions League group stage 3rd round on Wednesday evening. Both teams search for points in this match, which could secure them the top spot in the group after this round.
Manchester United vs Atalanta Match Preview & Team News
The home side disappointed its fans once again, as they suffered a 4:2 defeat away to Leicester City last weekend. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under huge pressure, as his team celebrated just once in the previous five matches in all competitions. The Red Devils slipped down to the 6th spot in the Premier League, and they are already five points behind Chelsea. Although Cristiano Ronaldo and the lads scored on the previous three occasions, their teammates from defense cannot hold their backline tight. Manchester United lost in their first Champions League match against Young Boys on the road. However, they bounced back with a victory against Villarreal, which still keeps them in the race for the top two. United is one point behind Atalanta, and three points from this match would launch them to the top of the table.
On the other hand, Atalanta heads to this match after beating Empoli 4:1 on the road. That victory lifted them to 6th place, and La Dea is now just a point behind fourth-placed Roma. Josip Ilicic and the lads have improved their finishing lately, but their defense is still leaky. Atalanta has been excellent on the road this season, as they missed the chance to win only once in four outings in Serie A. Gian Piero Gasperini’s side tops the Champions League group standings, collecting four points from two matches. They aim for a place in the knockout stage, and Atalanta will try to get back home from Manchester with at least a point.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Despite being in poor form lately, Manchester United is still a favorite in this clash. They should try to get back on the winning track, and we think they should secure an important victory in this encounter.
Goals Market Prediction
The Red Devils are very vulnerable in the back, and Atalanta is a team that can punish all their mistakes. Therefore, we don’t think either side will keep the clean sheet, and the crowd should enjoy an entertaining clash.
