Both Atalanta and PSG have several adjustments on their lineup towards this match.
Atalanta forward Josip Ilicic, who scored 15 goals this Serie A season and 5 goals in Europe, won’t be able to contribute and play for the club this time due to personal reasons. Our latest Football News about Three new clubs to welcome on Premier League season 2020-21 available at here!
With Ilicic out of the picture, the depth of Atalanta still in present, as manager Gian Piero Gasperini would then make Alejandro Gomez as the primary scorer for the group, along with Duvan Zapata and Luis Muriel to start in the front, with Mario Pasalic in the front three.
PSG star forward Kylian Mbappe could be seen to play towards this match after he completed light training work on the weekends and was named in the club’s travelling squad for Portugal.
Marco Verratti is out with a calf injury acquired in training,Thomas Meunier also sidelined, Angel Di Maria suspended, Layvin Kurzawa is in question if he is fully fit to play, and forward Edinson Cavani, already out since June following the expiration of his contract.
Atalanta has been fearless throughout the season, and we expect they’ll create chances as much as possible, even facing the Parisians that have kept six clean sheets in the Champions League this season.
Mbappe-Neymar-Icardi is key for PSG, but they are facing a similar type of club on how both sides take advantage with space to make a run.
Obviously PSG are the favorites in this fixture, but Atalanta’s momentum is something else, and Mbappe isn’t quite fully fit in case he enters the pitch, thus we’re picking the Italian club to win this tight matchup.
Atalanta to win – 3.40, Draw – 3.95, Real Madrid to win – 2.05
FT.HDP – Atalanta: 0.5
Predicted Score: 2-1 in favor of Atalanta
