Atalanta vs Shakhtar Donetsk Match Preview
Atalanta beat Roma (0-2) at Stadio Olimpico on Wednesday and the busy schedule continues, as they host Shakhtar Donetsk for their Champions League clash just days after their weekend trip to Reggio nell’Emilia – looking to finally retain some consistency after an unpredictable start of the new campaign.
La Dea have seen a thrashing 4-0 loss at Dinamo Zagreb on the opening day of the campaign in Group C, only bouncing with a point in a thriller 2-2 draw against Fiorentina where they found two very late goals to level the terms. They will now hope to build on the positives and we certainly expect them very motivated to do so.
Shakhtar Donetsk travel to Milan with a two-match winning streak behind them, where they beat Desna (0-1) and Vorskla (4-0) in two Premier League outings over the past two weeks. They kept clean sheets on both occasions and felt more stable at the back, seeing a 0-3 loss to projected group dominants Man City beforehand.
Miners have been in great shape domestically and bagged 27 points in nine league outings so far, proving themselves a tough side to cope with on the road. However, they still have a lot to prove in Champions League and we feel the trip to Giuseppe Meazza could prove too much of a task at this point.
We will thus back Atalanta to secure all three points on Tuesday and going for a Home win at 20/23 with , despite their disappointing trip to Zagreb behind them and obvious pressure mounting after it.
We do expect a narrow occasion and Shakhtar will be no easy rivals to outclass. They’ll come motivated to snatch the points and with that in mind, we hope for an exciting contest with goals as we also go for a Yes on Both teams to score at 4/6 with William Hill.
