Manchester City v Atalanta Tips & Predictions
22nd October 2019 – 20:00
Match Preview & Team News
Manchester City host Atalanta in what should be a one-way street all the way on Tuesday night. The Citizens stormed through Group C with a pair of comfortable clean sheet wins over Shakhtar Donetsk and Dinamo Zagreb (5-0 in the process), who have birth defeated the Italian debutants in their opening two fixtures.
Atalanta are doing well in the domestic campaign where they sit third after winning five of eight matches. However, their defensive line looks to be too weak for the continental competition as the team have shipped six goals in two games and are yet to face the most lethal attacking line in the group.
La Dea revealed their defensive holes once again at the weekend when they dropped a three-goal lead to earn just a point in a six-goal thriller against Lazio in Rome (3-3). To make matters worse for Gianpiero Gasperini, he will be without the main attacking option as Duvan Zapata suffered a thigh injury on international duty with Colombia. The red-hot striker (scored six Serie A goals) missed Saturday’s clash at Lazio.
Pep Guardiola’s troops returned to winning ways after a shocking home loss to Wolves. They saw off Crystal Palace 0-2 at Selhurst Park via goals from Gabriel Jesus and David Silva. Sergio Aguero was an unused sub as he is still not fully recovered from the injury.
La Dea conceded four goals at Dinamo Zagreb and three at Lazio in recent away fixtures. We could potentially be looking at Manchester City’s drubbing of their opponents here.
Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction
The gulf in quality between the two sides is huge and we expect the Citizens to storm past their rivals here. The main pick is Man City to have the lead at the half time and win the match at the end at the 8/13 odds.
Goals Market Prediction
Raheem Sterling was the standout performer for the Citizens in the 2019/20 season. We will back the in-form English attacker to score anytime at 8/11 odds.
