Atalanta vs Valencia Prediction and Betting Preview 19 Feb 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 4-1
Atalanta vs Valencia PredictionAtalanta might have had a good start to the campaign but they now look to be burning low on their morale deposits. They look sick as a dog in the final third or would a grand climacteric – a period of decrease in reproductive capacity - be the better way to describe a spell that saw them endure a round of mixed results?
Match status: 2019-20 Champions League Round of 16
Venue: Giuseppe Meazza (Milan)
It’s a rather topsy-turvy set of results they’ve churned out in the past few weeks. However, they have now turned a corner and are now unbeaten in their last five matches across all competitions. They are blessed with a fair chance of making it to the quarter finals having avoided a clash with all the other big guns in the round-of-16. 

This is a valid suggestion since Valencia haven’t been incredible lately. They have seen only one win in their last five encounters and aren’t the polished side they once were. Despite Valencia being more experienced than the Bergamo outfit in this competition, most punters would like to stick with Atalanta.

Atalanta vs Valencia Team News

Atalanta were on the road for their last game in the group stage. The team had been pitted against Shakhtar Donetsk, and in spite of being away from home, they recorded a 0-3 win.

It was a testament to the form Atalanta have been in, especially since December. In fact, in the past three months, they have lost just once at home. And disregarding another draw, they have won all of their match-ups at home since the last week of November.

At present, Atalanta are in a strong position to qualify for the Champions League from the Serie A. They have been the best in Italy, counting out the three titans – Juventus, Inter Milan, and Lazio.

With a six-point lead at the fourth spot, and the fifth-placed Roma on a three-game losing run in the league, a CL ticket seems inevitable for Atalanta.

Meanwhile, Valencia recorded a surprise 0-1 win on the road, against Ajax, in their last group stage game. The Dutch squad had impressed the world with a deep run into the CL semis the last season, and considering their form, they were expected to easily make it to the knockouts.

In the past three months, Atalanta have lost just thrice, and two of those defeats had come on the road. Currently, they are on a three-match winning run, and a five-match unbeaten streak. At home, they had won six of their previous eight appearances, and stood invincible in seven of those matches.

Keep note that, in the process, they had scored a total of 26 goals from these eight match-ups, including a 5-0 victory against AC Milan, and a 2-1-win triumph over Roma.

On the other hand, Valencia have a total of four wins since mid-December, and two of those had come against Spanish relegation-battlers, and one against a lower-division team in the Copa del Rey. In addition, they were also winless in nine of their previous thirteen road trips as well.

As such, expect the ambitious Atalanta to deliver a hard-fought win this Wednesday. However, do note that is the knockouts of the CL, and Valencia will be fighting for their lives as well. Moreover, Valencia had scored goals in 23 of their last 25 overall games, and in 24 of their prior 26 away fixtures.

Atalanta are the favourites and we expect a home victory, although do not be surprised if Valencia claim what could prove to be an all-important away goal.
