Atalanta vs Manchester UTD Betting PreviewAtalanta have earned 4 points in their first three Champions League games but would have easily led the group if they had not suffered a comeback at Old Trafford and lost 3-2 to Man UTD after finding themselves leading by 2 goals. In the first two matches, the Serie A outfit shared the spoils at Villarreal (2-2) and beat Young Boys at home (1-0). It is not a particularly brilliant moment for Gianpiero Gasperini's men: only one victory in the last 4 outings in all competitions. The recorded a last-gasp draw at home against Lazio (2-2) last Saturday. Before that Atalanta defeated Sampdoria away (1-3) and drew 1-1 against Udinese in front of their ow fans.
Manchester United lead the UCL group with 6 points, the result of last-minute victories against Atalanta (3-2) and Villarreal (2-1) after the initial defeat at Young Boys (2-1). The Red Devils reached one of the lowest points in their glorious history about 10 days ago, hammered at home by Liverpool (0-5) in the Premier League. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was very close to be sacked but saved his job once again thanks to a 3-0 away win at Tottenham (who then sacked Nuno Espirito Santo and is trying to hire Antonio Conte, also in contention for the Red Devils' bench). United are fifth in the table, but already 8 points behind leaders Chelsea and have conceded 15 goals in 10 games. Precisely for this reason the Norwegian manager has decided to switch to the 3-man defense.
Despite playing in front of their own fans, Atalanta are the underdogs and are priced at 2/1 to win this clash with Betfair, while Man UTD are 7/5 to win with STS. The draw at 3/1 with Unibet looks enticing.

Probable Line-UpsAtalanta (3-4-2-1): Musso; Palomino, Demiral, Lovato; Zappacosta, Freuler, De Roon, Maehle; Pasalic, Malinovskyi; Zapata
Important return for Gasperini: Jose Palomino is ready to return in defense, allowing Maarten De Roon to move to midfield. Matteo Lovato and Merih Demiral will complete the defense trio, since Berat Djimsiti and Rafael Toloi. As for the wing-back roles, the likes of Davide Zappacosta and Joakim Maehle will feature from the off, since Robin Gosens and Hans Hateboer are still unavailable.. Up front, Duvan Zapata should be the center forward with Mario Pasalic and Ruslan Malinovskyi behind him (Josip Ilicic is in doubt due to a physical problem).
Manchester UTD (3-5-2): De Gea; Maguire, Varane, Lindelof; Wan-Bissaka, McTominay, Fernandes, Fred, Shaw; Rashford, Ronaldo
Ole Gunnar Solskaer is expected to play with the same system with which he overwhelmed Tottenham over the weekend, a 3-5-2 in which Marcus Rashford will join Cristiano Ronaldo in attack (against the Spurs it was Edinson Cavani who started the game). Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka will play as wing-backs while Fred, Scott McTominay and Bruno Fernandes should be the central midfielders (in that case, Paul Pogba would be initially benched once again. The defensive trio should consist of Harry Maguire, Raphael Varane and Victor Lindelof. The only absent is the former Atalanta's youngster Amad Diallo.
Atalanta vs Manchester UTD Betting Tips
Atalanta have already shown that they can trouble Manchester United but they are still lacking in terms of experience and solidity. Man UTD will arrive to Gewiss Stadium on the back of an important victory and playing with a new system, but also with a very unstable psychological condition. A draw could satisfy both teams: Man United would maintain the top of the table, Atalanta would try to secure the qualification against Villarreal and Young Boys. As to the scoreline, 1-1 and 2-2 are the correct scores we recommend. Among the possible goalscorers, Zapata is on fire but could strugge against three physical defenders. We put our money on Ruslan Malinovskyi and on his long-rage shooting skills.
