Atalanta meets Manchester City again in Round 4 of Champions League action this Wednesday.
The home team is currently sitting in the last place of the group with 0 points in three matches. They’ve scored only 2 goals and conceded 11 during this campaign, however, they are known to play an attractive brand of football, never “parking the bus” in front of their goalkeeper, that’s one of the characteristics why their games are always a must-watch. At Etihad Stadium, they’ve suffered a heavy beating from Pep Guardiola and company, and will try to fix some of the defensive lapses committed two weeks ago. If they get it right, we could have an electric match between two offensive-minded teams. Atalanta have seen themselves take the lead in two of their three UCL matches, but eventually, faltered under pressure. An interesting stat is that in their last eight games either European or domestic, the average of goals has been 4.75.
Manchester City had a hard time dealing with Southampton last weekend for the Premier League. After dispatch them easily for the EFL Cup, they only equalised at the 70th minute, scoring the winning goal by Kyle Walker in the 86th. The Citizens are in a great spot to qualify for the next stage, and a win tonight would make them go through immediately. That way, they could give all their attention to the Premier League, where they trail Liverpool by 6 points. One can argue that they could rotate in this game as well, seeing that their game next weekend is at Anfield Road and could prove to be decisive in the long run.
With all scenarios set, this match could prove to be good for a specific market. Goals. Both teams play an offensive brand of football, which leads to many goal scoring opportunities. Over 3.5 goals seems to be a good choice for this contest.
