Manchester City vs Atalanta Betting Tips


Manchester City’s recent goalscoring form can continue in their UEFA Champions League clash against Atalanta at Etihad Stadium. Both teams are excellent in attack and should produce over 3.5 goals with Man City backed to win.

Manchester City Form


Manchester City earned a 2-0 victory at home against Dinamo Zagreb in their previous fixture in Group C. Raheem Sterling opened the scoring on 66 minutes before Phil Foden added the second deep into added time.

The Citizens also head into Tuesday’s clash off the back of another 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace in the Premier League. Pep Guardiola’s men have a 100% record in the Champions League and are valued at 1.17 to claim the win but given the quality in both attacks, I am backing them to edge an outcome of over 3.5 goals at 1.95.

Manchester City News


Sergio Aguero was an unused substitute in the win over Crystal Palace and could be given a start on Tuesday. He is likely to be joined in attack by Raheem Sterling who has scored five goals in his last six Champions League matches. John Stones is expected to start at the back after making his return from injury at Selhurst Park.

Atalanta Form


Atalanta suffered a 2-1 defeat at home against Shakhtar Donetsk last time out in the Champions League. They took the lead on 28 minutes through Duvan Zapata but could not hold on.

Gianpiero Gasperini's men have lost their two matches on their debut in the competition and were held to a 3-3 draw against Lazio in the Italian Serie A on Saturday. Their poor form means they are not favoured to win in Manchester at odds of 15.00 while a draw is priced at 7.00.

Atalanta News


Atalanta will be without top scorer Duvan Zapata who is sidelined with a torn abductor muscle. Luis Muriel should start in attack having scored twice against Lazio while Josip Ilicic is set to be given a start after coming off the bench on Saturday.

Manchester City vs Atalanta Betting Odds


Manchester City are backed at 1.17 to win on Tuesday with a draw priced at 7.00. A win for Atalanta is set at odds of 15.00. 

Over 2.5 goals is paying 1.30 while over 3.5 goals is offered at 1.80 on bet365. A -1 home handicap is valued at odds of 1.57.

Manchester City vs Atalanta Match Up


Manchester City have plenty of quality in attack with Sergio Aguero, Bernardo Silva and Gabriel Jesus all among the goals lately. Raheem Sterling could be the one to watch having scored five goals in his last six Champions League matches.

Atalanta are likely to miss Duvan Zapata up front, although Luis Muriel and Josip Ilicic have the quality to trouble Manchester City. The major problem for the Italians is in defence where they have conceded six goals in two Champions League matches.
