Shakhtar Donetsk vs Atalanta Match Preview
Shakhtar Donetsk have been in fine form lately and now host Atalanta hoping to confirm it with a ticket to the Champions League knockout stages, sitting 2nd after five games played with both Dinamo Zagreb and the Italian rivals breathing down their necks ahead of the decision day.
Miners beat Olimpik Donetsk (3-0) on Friday and built on their seven-match unbeaten run, where they also held Dinamo Zagreb (3-3) and Man City (1-1) to exciting draws on the road. Luis Castro will now want to capitalize and we expect his men very motivated to do so, with rock-solid home records to build on as well.
However, Atalanta come into the match in a great mood as well, having finally gained consistency and connecting a three-match winning streak across competitions since late November. They beat Dinamo (2-0) at San Siro and came within points of a top 2 spot, which will have them just as confident now.
La Dea beat Brescia (0-3) and Hellas Verona (3-2) in two high-scoring Serie A clashes since then as well, with goals coming from all directions. They have struggled for great consistency on the road through most part of the campaign but still kept scoring goals, which promises a great challenge at Oblasny SportKomplex Metalist.
We feel the visitors will now have what it takes to snatch all three points and quite possibly make the top 2 cut in an unexpected turn of events (especially after a troubled start in Group C), as we back Atalanta to win at 31/20 with bet365.
We should be in for goals and both sides’ recent records suggest the same. We’ve seen Atalanta regularly scoring and conceding numbers on the road, which has us hoping they’ll outgun Shakhtar in an exciting game with Over 2.5 Goals FT at 8/13 with William Hill.
