Champions League Football Prediction – Manchester United vs Atalanta

  • Manchester United took the lead against Leicester on Saturday, but the Foxes fought back and eventually lost 4-2. The pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has increased as a result of his two wins in seven games.
  • Moreover, Manchester United are up against an Atalanta squad that appears to have found its stride. The Italians have won four of their past six matches in all competitions. Plus, have yet to lose on the road this season.
  • Given their recent form, it actually wouldn’t be surprising if Atalanta returned to Italy with a positive outcome.

Our Prediction: Manchester United 2 – 2 Atalanta
