Manchester City can secure a ticket to the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League with a win over Atalanta at the San Siro. City have a 100% record in the competition and beat Atalanta in the revers e fixture last time out.

Atalanta Form


Atalanta were hammered 5-1 in the reverse fixture in Manchester with Ruslan Malinovsky grabbing what turned out to be a mere consolation on 28 minutes. It has been a poor campaign for the Italians on their Champions League debut having lost all three matches.

Gian Piero Gasperini's men have generally struggled to find their best form in recent weeks having claimed just one win in their last five matches. They head into Wednesday’s clash off the back of a 2-0 Serie A defeat to Cagliari in a match where they had just three shots in target and 0.76 expected goals.

Atalanta News


Atalanta will be without injured striker Duvan Zapata. Luis Muriel should continue to lead the line in the absence of the Colombian and should start in attack on Wednesday. 

He is likely to be joined by Alejandro Gomez and Josip Ilicic. Rafael Toloi and Berat Djimsiti should continue in a defence that has conceded 11 goals in three Champions League matches.

Manchester City Form


Manchester City travel to Italy off the back of a 2-1 victory over Southampton in the Premier League. Having gone behind early in the contest, goals from Sergio Aguero and Kyle Walker earned them the win. They were completely dominant and should have won by more having had more shots (26-3) and expected goals (3.36-0.89).

City were rampant in the reverse fixture as they ran out 5-1 winners at home. They fought back from a goal down with Raheem Sterling grabbing a hat-trick while Sergio Aguero scored twice.

Manchester City are one win away from qualifying for the round of 16 having won their opening three matches in the competition. Pep Guardiola’s men have however conceded in three of their last four matches across all competitions.

Luis Muriel has stepped in for the injured Duvan Zapata in recent weeks but is not as consistent as his compatriot. He has five goals in his last 10 matches but is yet to find the net in the Champions League.

Manchester City have numerous attacking options but Raheem Sterling has been the standout player in recent matches. He has four Champions League goals this season, including the hat-trick in the reverse fixture and will be confident of getting on the score sheet on Wednesday.
