Liverpool vs Atalanta: Betting tips, predictions, odds & match preview
Liverpool will look to seal progression to the Champions League knockout rounds when they host Atlanta on Wednesday at 8:00 PM (UK time).
Liverpool vs Atalanta: Predictions
The Reds have been in stunning form so far in this season’s Champions League, winning all three of their group games against Ajax, FC Midtjylland and Atalanta with an aggregate score of 8-0.
That run has left them top of Group D, needing only one more win to put themselves beyond the reach of Wednesday’s opponents and bottom-of-the-group Midtjylland.
Atalanta, meanwhile, fell to their first Champions League defeat of the season against Liverpool at the start of November, suffering a 5-0 home humbling at the hands of the English champions having taken four points from two games prior.
That defeat was the start of what has been a three-game winless run for Gian Piero Gasperini’s men, who have drawn their last two Serie A games, 1-1 and 0-0 against Inter Milan and Spezia, respectively.
