Reason for Atalanta vs Liverpool Predictions
Atalanta has four points from its first two games in the competition. They reached the last eight in the 2019/20 season and again look like making it into the knock-out stages. They won 4-0 away at Midtjylland and then came from 2-0 down to get a home 2-2 draw with Ajax. The weekend saw them get a 2-1 away win at Crotone, their fourth win in six Serie A fixtures, taking them to second after Saturday’s fixtures. Nine of their last ten games have seen both teams score. That stat has come up in four of five Atalanta home games in this competition. Midfielder Remo Freuler found the right role in the team, he moves great in the middle of the game on the field, and it’s hard to take the ball away from this guy. Pasalic enjoys the pitch, when he receives the ball and goes towards the goal, the opponent has problems, he is strong, and it is challenging to keep this guy. Alejandro Gomez is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, he has excellent ball control and can be satisfied with his performance. Duvan Zapata scored 18 goals in Serie A, he is fast, has reasonable ball control, and many clubs are ready to give a fortune for his arrival. He is a player for great deeds.
Liverpool top the group on six points, two clear of their opponents in this game. Liverpool began this group with a 1-0 away win at Ajax. A weakened line-up then saw them defeat Midtjylland at Anfield 2-0 and the two clean sheets were very welcome for Liverpool. There are some crazy statistics around, and perhaps the most insane one is the fact Liverpool top the Premier League by three points after Saturday’s win over West Ham but have conceded more goals than any other team in the league. Georginio Wijnaldum plays well in the middle of the pitch, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Sadio Mane plays excellently, he is fast in the one-on-one game, and he is unstoppable. Mohamed Salah is a master of football, and it is a pleasure to watch his moves, he scored 19 goals last season, and the Egyptian does not spare his opponents. Diogo Jota showed that a great reinforcement, moves well, and cooperates with the attackers, all praise for him.
It will be a big battle between these two teams, and it will not be surprising if the match ends in a draw. We can also expect a goal in both nets, and neither side should keep the clean sheet.
