Liverpool v Atalanta betting previewLiverpool returned to be the Premier League leaders after an impressive display in their 3-0 win over Leicester on Sunday. The Reds are now unbeaten in 64 top flight games at Anfield. They have won all three Champions League games this season and are yet to concede a goal. Another win against Atalanta would be enough to qualify for the next round with two games to play. This outcome is backable at 4/6 with Betfair (or 7/1 courtesy of 888sport's enhanced odds).
Atalanta have only won one of their last six games since beating FC Midtjylland in their Champions League opener. After their 5-0 defeat at the hands of Liverpool, they recorded two consecutive draws in Serie A - 1:1 at home against Inter and 0-0 at Spezia last weekend. They have averaged only one goal per game in that six-match streak, having netted 18 in their five games before that. In Champions League, Gianpiero Gasperini's men are level on points with Ajax, having draw 2-2 with the Eredivisie outfit and beaten Midtjylland last month. Atalanta are heavy underdogs despite Liverpool are missing key players - you can back them at 19/5 with Unibet or claim a 33/1 price boost at 888sport.
Team NewsThe Anfield treatment room is a busy place at the moment and the likes of Virgil Van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Naby Keita, Jordan Henderson, Joe Gomez, Thiago Alcantara and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain all unavailable because of injury or COVID-19. At least Mohamed Salah is likely to return to the squad after a negative test. With Nat Phillips uneligible in Champions League, Fabinho is expected to partner Joel Matip at centre-back, while James Milner should start as right back. In midfield, Curtis Jones should feature from the off.
The visitors will be with Mattia Caldara and Fabio Depaoli due to injury, while Ruslan Malinovskyi has tested positive to coronavirus. Hans Hateboer is not 100% fit but he should start the game, with Robin Gosens on the other flank. Up front, Papu Gomez should play as number ten behind Duvan Zapata and Josip Ilicic. Anyway, Luis Muriel, Sam Lammers and Aleksey Miranchuk provide further offensive options.
Atalanta (3-4-1-2): Gollini; Toloi, Palomino, Djimsiti; Gosens, Hateboer, Freuler, De Roon; Gomez; Ilicic, Zapata
