Europe: Champions League - Atalanta vs Manchester City

Atalanta vs Manchester City Betting Tips and Preview

On the verge of securing their spot in the knockout stage of this year’s Champions League, Manchester City will make the trip to an inconsistent Atalanta on Wednesday night.

Atalanta

Starting with the hosts, while an empathic 7-1 win over Udinese last month may have improved the mood around the Gewiss Stadium, Atalanta have since come crashing back down to earth. Putting in arguably a season-worst display and suffering a shock 2-0 defeat at home against Cagliari over the weekend, Gian Piero Gasperini’s men have won just one of their last five matches across all competitions and have continued to show some glaring issues on their Champions League debut. Handed a 5-1 hammering away at the Etihad a fortnight ago, the Blue and Blacks have lost each of their opening three Group C appearances, shipping a staggering 11 goals in those three defeats. Now falling out of the top-four in Serie A, fans around the Gewiss Stadium will have some growing concerns over their sides form on home soil. Including their defeat against Cagliari on Sunday, Atalanta have won just a pair of their last six matches in front of their own supporters.

Manchester City

As for the visitors, battling from behind in the most dramatic of fashion to clinch a 2-1 win over a struggling Southampton on Saturday, the defending Premier League champions have continued to shine following the international break. Head Coach Pep Guardiola finds his side enjoying a five-match winning run across all competitions and also hold a five-point buffer at the top of Group C. Despite chasing a six-point buffer to Liverpool in the race to defend their domestic crown, the mood around the Etihad remains at a high and they have continued to show their usual strengths in the final third. Already bagging 10 Champions League goals so far, one man to watch out for in midweek will be leading marksman and attacking talisman, Sergio Aguero. Once again finding the net on Saturday, the 31-year-old now has five goals in his last four matches across all formats. Also enjoying a four-match winning run on the road, Guardiola’s side should be confident of extending their buffer at the top of Group C on Wednesday.

Verdict

On the verge of securing their spot in the knockout stage, there is no doubt that Pep Guardiola’s side should be relishing a trip to Atalanta on Wednesday. With the hosts so publically struggling upon their Champions League debut and losing each of three Group C appearances, the Italian outfit have continued to show some glaring issues on home soil. With Manchester City continuing to shine while away on European duties, we’re backing another three points for the Premier League champions in midweek.
