Predictions and Tips
- MoneyLine Pick: Atalanta Will Win
- Over Under Pick: The Total Will Go Under 2.5
- Computer Predicted Score: 2:1
If you pay attention to the current form of the teams in internal tournaments, which should be done, Atalanta has been really impressive lately. The victory over Torino, where Il Toro conceded seven unrequited goals, is worth it. Gasperini’s wards also managed to beat Fiorentina (1:2) and Roma (2:1), but the feeling that Atalanta could lose points in any match does not go away. The home defeat by SPAL (1:2) and a draw against Genoa (2:2) are vivid examples.
Head coach Gian Piero Gasperini should not experience any problems when choosing the starting lineup for the Champions League match. All the players of the first team will be at his disposal, as The Goddess Infirmary is empty at the moment. That may be the main factor in the confrontation with Valencia.
Possible starting lineup: Gollini; Toloi, Palomino, Djimsiti; Hateboer, de Roon, Freuler, Gosens; Gomez, Zapata, Ilicic
Valencia, plays in Spain with varying success, holding victorious series, or losing several consecutive matches. The Mates’ latest results include a 1/4 Spanish Cup qualifier from Granada, a 3-0 defeat from Getafe and a 2-2 draw against Atletico in the La Liga.
One of the reasons for Valencia’s instability is staffing problems, including in the central protection zone. It is noteworthy that the failures of Albert Celades team are due to the absence of Ezequiel Garay, who also risks not to play against Atalanta from a knee injury. In addition, the disqualification of Gabriel Paulista puts The Oranges in a difficult situation when choosing a central defender for a Champions League match. The goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen is still unable to recover from the injury and the appearance of Kevin Gameiro is in question.
Possible starting lineup: Cillessen; Gaya, Mangala, Diakhaby, Florenzi; Soler, Kondogbia, Parejo, Garcia; Gomez, Guedes

Atalanta vs Valencia Prediction
Atalanta approaches the fight with Valencia in great shape and great mood – on the eve of bergamoski defeated one of their main rivals in the fight for fourth place and generally cope with the challenges. Valencia is certainly in a much worse mood and looks very unconvincing in the game, but the fight to give the Italians it is quite capable.
Atalanta’s experience in matches of this level is clearly lacking, and in general in defense the hosts’ problems are visible to the naked eye, so the goals in this match can clearly be counted on, in the attack Atalanta is great.
We predict a Atalanta win.
