Atalanta v Liverpool betting previewAtalanta come into this match on the back of a 2-1 win over Crotone in Serie A on Saturday. They sit third in the standings, boasting the second best attack of the league with 17 goals in their opening six games. Their only blip came at Napoli, when Gianpiero Gasperini's men suffered a 4-0 defeat. In Europe, Atalanta thrashed Midtjylland 4-0 in Denmark and drew 2-2 with Ajax at home. They are 31/10 with VBet to beat the current Premier League champions.
Liverpool recorded a narrow 2-1 win over West Ham in the English Premier League on Saturday, stretching their unbeaten record at home to 63 games. The Reds now top the domestic table, with Tottenham two points below. Jurgen Klopp's men gave a 100% winning record in Champions League so far, having beaten both Ajax and Midtjylland by one goal. They are 15/13 with SportNation to make it three from three.
Team NewsDuvan Zapata is expected to lead the Atalanta line having only been used as a half-time sub at the weekend. There remain doubts over the availability of German left-back Robin Gosens and Netherlands international Marten de Roon. Goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini was back among the substitutes at the weekend but Marco Sportiello is expected to retain his berth between the sticks. Mattia Caldara, Marco Carnesecchi and Cristiano Piccini are all still sidelined for the hosts.
Jurgen Klopp’s side currently dealing with a defensive injury crisis. Joel Matip's return is a huge boost with Fabinho and Virgil van Dijk injured and Nat Phillips ineligible. Xherdan Shaqiri is expected to join Jordan Henderson and Gini Wijnaldum in midfield, as Thiago Alcantara is still expected to miss out. Up front, Roberto Firmino should make room to in-form Diogo Jota.
Liverpool (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, R Williams, Gomez, Robertson; Shaqiri, Henderson, Milner; Salah, Mane, Jota

Atalanta v Liverpool Betting TipsAtalanta emerged as a major force when finishing 3rd in Serie A last term and came within a whisker of reaching last edition's Champions League semi-finals. Jurgen Klopp's record in Italy is poor - the German manager has lost all five of his previous Champions League visits there, including three previous trips with Liverpool. As a result, we would go for the Italians not to lose. Plus, it will be probably a high-scoring affair.
