Manchester United vs Atalanta Predictions & Analysis
Manchester United were rescued by their talisman Cristiano Ronaldo who found the late stoppage-time goal to give them a precious 2-1 victory over Villarreal in the second round of the competition.
It was a massive three-pointer for the Red Devils who had shockingly lost the opening fixture 2-1 away at Young Boys.
Ronaldo was on target in that game too and he will no doubts be the main threat to Atalanta’s goal in this very exciting third-round tie.
The Italians will enter it from the top spot in Group F, following a 2-2 draw at Villarreal on the opening day and a 1-0 win over Young Boys last time out.
La Dea have been playing hot and cold in the Serie A, though. They have been struggling to keep things quiet at the back lately, shipping two goals at Inter, three goals to Milan, and one goal to Empoli in the last three rounds.
On the bright side, Gianpiero Gasperini’s men have been scoring goals for fun at the same time. They have notched two or more goals in each of the last four league games, despite playing the likes of Inter and Milan in the process.
Knowing how vulnerable United’s defense has been of late, we can count on Atalanta’s goals at Old Trafford.
