Match status: 2019-20 Champions League Group Stages
Venue: Etihad Stadium (Manchester)
Guardiola’s boys walk into this clash buoyed by a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace. Coupled with their shock result at Wolves, Man City know they cannot underestimate any opponent and will be at their best in this clash. All their focus will now be on the much-coveted Champions League trophy which has proven elusive to the ambitious Manchester City side.

The Citizens know that glory on the European stage will be a sure redemption after complacency saw them drop valuable points in the league. Pep Guardiola, himself a proven champions league winner, will be looking to improve on his side’s quarter-final exit last campaign.

After finishing 3rd in Serie A last season, Atalanta made it to the European competition for the first time in their history much to the fans jubilation. However, the Italian side have found things tough on their continental début. Having lost their two opening games against Zagreb and Shakhtar, the side is yet to record any points. Their situation will not be helped by the fact that they face back to back games against Manchester City.

Getting points from the current Premier League champions is every teams headache and Atalanta coach Gian Piero will bear that in mind. Despite losing ground in the group stages, all hope is not lost on a top-two finish and the side have a chance to make it past the group stage. Any positive result here will greatly reinforce their chances

Man City v Atalanta Team News

Manchester City will miss out on long-term absentees Leroy Sane and Aymeric Laporte both out with knee injuries. The coach could make some alterations from the side that beat Crystal Palace and some key players could be rested as the Citizens pile pressure on league leaders Liverpool. Otamendi and John Stones are expected fit for this clash.

For Atalanta, of concern is their current top scorer Colombian Duran Zapata who is doubtful with a thigh injury. Luis Muries, who scored a brace in Saturday’s draw with Lazio, could lead the attacking front. There are no other injury concerns with the Italians.

Man City vs Atalanta Predictions

Manchester City look set to win this match and should do so even if they rest some key players. On fire in Europe, they have scored 5 and conceded none from 2 games and coming up against a weak opponent, the Citizens should easily dispatch the Italians. Atalanta are having a dismal European run and have just managed six shots on target in the group matches so far. Not a surprise they lie bottom of the log.
