Atalanta to win: why is this a good bet?

  • Atalanta are unbeaten in their last 5 games in all competitions
  • They have only 1 injury to worry about
  • By contrast, Real Madrid will be without many key performers
  • Atalanta have lost just 1 of their last 11 home matches, winning 8 of those
  • Los Galacticos picked up just 1 away win from their 3 trips in the Group Stage of the Champions League this season

La Dea are heading in this game on the back of a brilliant 4-2 win over Napoli in Serie A last weekend. Prior to that, they beat Cagliari by 1-0 with Luis Muriel scoring the sole goal.

Other positive results from Atalanta include yet another win over Napoli, this time in the Coppa Italia by 3-1. Apart from that, Gian Gasperini’s men also held Torino to a 3-3 draw in the league.

Currently sitting in 5th place with 43 points, there is just a 10-point difference between them and the league leaders Inter Milan. The side has been playing some brilliant football this season as they look to become a regular part of the Champions League.

In the group stage this season, they finished in the second position – 2 points behind Liverpool. More impressively, they beat the Reds 2-0 at Anfield and also handed Ajax a similar defeat on their home turf too.

Luis Muriel is the best performer for the Black and Blues with 14 goals and 4 assists in 13 appearances. He is assisted further in the front by his Colombian compatriot Duvan Zapata, who has scored 9 goals already.

These players are definitely in fine form and on their best day, they can easily dismantle an injured Real Madrid side.

Luis Muriel of Atalanta
Murial has been a key performer for the Italian club this season.

What about Real Madrid?

For this game, Zinedine Zidane will have to make do without his key talismans like Eden Hazard, Sergio Ramos, Marcelo, and Karim Benzema. However, they still have the likes of Toni Kroos and Luka Modric in their ranks, who have proven to be crucial in the last few matchdays.

The club has been fighting back heroically in the La Liga as they now sit in second place with 52 points – 3 shy of the league leaders Atletico Madrid.

Moreover, they do have momentum on their side, having won their last 4 league games. Most recently, they beat Real Valladolid by 1-0. Before that, they beat Getafe and Valencia by 2-0, keeping clean sheets all the way.

On paper, the situation appears to be a win for Los Galacticos but Atalanta are a problematic side. Add to this equation their not-so-flawless-form during their travels and injuries, Real Madrid will look more vulnerable.

With home advantage, Atalanta should be able to win the first leg comfortably.

Both Teams to Score, Atalanta Win: why is this a good bet?

It is unlikely that either of the two sides will keep a clean sheet in this game, especially considering what’s at stake here. Atalanta have been brilliant at home this season and we expect them to continue the same form.

Expect goals from both sides but ultimately, the Italian club should win this game.

For the same reason, we also predict that this match will see over 2.5 goals. Between Modric, Zapata, Muriel, and others, there is enough attacking talent in both the teams for us to have a good, goalscoring game.
