Manchester City vs. Atalanta – Prediction (22.10.2019)

Preview and Teams Comparison.

Manchester City and Atalanta have never previously met in European competition.

Manchester City will look to make it three wins from three in Champions League (CL) Group C, and are yet to concede so far, netting five goals themselves. Unsurprisingly then, both their CL wins have come by at least a two-goal margin, yet despite their near total domination, the ‘Sky Blues’ have been shown more yellow cards than their opponents in both matches. Riyad Mahrez (MCY) has started the CL fantastically, with a goal and two assists so far – two of those involvements came before half-time. The hosts’ last seven competitive games have now been decided by a margin of at least two goals (W6, L1), with six of those fixtures witnessing just one side hit the back of the net. Curiously, a majority of those seven matches (57.14%) saw all the goals scored in just one half.

Man City have scored 3.2 goals on average across five competitive home matches this season. There’s been 13 yellow cards shown across Atalanta’s two CL matches this season – 6.5 on average. Atalanta’s last four games have seen both teams score, and at least three goals.

Atalanta, meanwhile, are in dire straits after two straight CL defeats. Although equal to or better than the opposition in terms of average possession (53%) and goal attempts (13.0) in both those CL games, they’ve lost both matches by an aggregate scoreline of 6-1. In just 272 minutes of football spread over eight competitive club matches, Luis Muriel has scored five goals for Atalanta this season. In Serie A however, ‘La Dea’ have performed admirably away, scoring at least two goals (2.8 on average) in their five SA road trips this term. Expect early action though, as four of their six competitive away matches this season featured at least three goals before half-time.
