Atalanta vs. Manchester City – Prediction (Champions League – 06.11.2019)

Preview and Teams Comparison.

Atalanta and Manchester City’s only previous meeting was on MD3, with the Citizens winning 5-1 at the Etihad Stadium.

Atalanta are in dire straits after three straight defeats in Group C of the UEFA Champions League (UCL). Although equal to or better than the opposition in terms of average possession and goal attempts in two of those UCL games, they’re still heavy favourites to lose and were beaten 5-1 in the reverse fixture. Luis Muriel has scored eight goals for Atalanta this season, in just 501 minutes of football spread over 12 competitive club matches. The Italians have taken the lead in two of three matches so far, but have lost all three in their UCL debut. Indeed, seven of Atalanta’s last eight competitive games have seen both teams score, plus at least three goals. Playing their home matches at the San Siro in Milan, their only UCL ‘home’ match so far featured no less than eight yellow cards.

Atalanta’s last eight competitive matches have averaged 4.75 goals. There’s been 19 yellow cards shown across Atalanta’s three UCL matches this season – 6.33 on average! Amazingly, City’s last 12 UCL matches (W10, D1, L1) have averaged 4.17 goals.

Meanwhile, Manchester City arrive looking to make it four wins from four in the tournament, and with a goal ratio of 10-1, it’s unsurprising that all those wins have come by at least a two-goal margin. What’s surprising is the fact that the ‘Sky Blues’ have been shown more yellow cards than their opponents in all three matches! Raheem Sterling (MCI) scored an 11-minute hat-trick in the reverse fixture, and all of his four UCL strikes this season have come in the second half. Ten of City’s last eleven competitive games have now been decided by a margin of at least two goals (W10, L1), with seven of those fixtures witnessing just one side hit the back of the net. Away from home, they’ve scored two goals or more in seven straight competitive matches.
