In this match preview, we bring you the best betting tips and correct score predictions based on the analysis of these two sides.
Manchester City vs Atalanta Betting Tips
Manchester City are the reigning champions of the Premier League and are, together with Liverpool, the biggest contenders to win the league once again. Despite being brilliant in the domestic competition, this team hasn’t been too great on the continent. In fact, even though they have one of the most expensive squads in the history of the sports, Man City are still without a Champions League trophy.
But, they are always among the biggest favorites for winning this title. Actually, the bookies are giving pretty short odds on Manchester City to win the Champions League this season. One of the reasons why that is the case is that the Sky Blues from Manchester are in a superb form when the continental championship is concerned. So far, they have nothing but wins, having won against Shakhtar Donetsk and Dinamo Zagreb. Their goal difference in this competition this season is 5:0.
It’s just the opposite when Man City’s next rival is concerned. Atalanta have been dreadful in the Champions League, with two defeats and a goal difference of 1:6. But, that’s kind of strange, considering that this team has been in a goal-scoring mood in the Italian Serie A. They’ve scored 21 goals in 8 rounds, which is more than any other team from this league. The trouble is that they have also allowed a lot of goals. There aren’t too many teams that have conceded more goals in the Serie A than Atalanta.
But, they got nothing to lose and will probably play openly in Manchester. Considering that everyone’s expecting them to lose this game, if they manage to get even a draw, it would be considered a massive success. And it would probably give them a lot to build on. The big question is whether they have the quality to snatch a point (or more) against City in the middle of Manchester?

Manchester City Form and Latest News
They are currently trailing by several points behind Liverpool in the Premier League, which is what worries them the most. Focusing on the Premier League is their priority at the moment, especially because they had some problems last month. For instance, they lost to Wolves in early October at their own turf.
Still, all this doesn’t mean they will be having trouble concentrating on the game with Atalanta. On the contrary, they want to win that game and get even closer to the knockout stage of the Champions League.
Atalanta Form and Latest News
Last weekend, they played 3:3 with Lazio in Rome, which was another of their high-scoring games. Speaking of scoring, this team has scored at least a goal in every single Serie A match this season. Actually, the last time they failed to score in the Italian top flight was in April. But, when it comes to the Champions League, they have scored only 1 goal so far. But, they are determined to change that ASAP!
