Gian Piero Gasperini’s men have won just one of their last six Champions League fixtures at the Gewiss Stadium but Atalanta can be backed at 13/8 (2.63) to leapfrog the visitors with a victory.
The hosts’ last two matches in front of their own fans have resulted in draws, and you can get odds of 29/10 (3.90) on them being held to yet another stalemate in this one.
Atalanta vs Manchester United first goalscorer
Cristiano Ronaldo is the 15/4 (4.75) favourite to break the deadlock after scoring in all three group games so far, while Edinson Cavani is priced at 11/2 (6.50) following his first goal of the campaign in Saturday’s 3-0 victory over Tottenham.
Duvan Zapata looks a strong 4/1 (5.00) first goalscorer bet after goals in three of his last five appearances, although Josip Ilicic could be even better value at 13/2 (7.50) considering he has scored six times in his last seven games for club and country.
Atalanta vs Manchester United preview
Late goals have been a feature of United’s Champions League campaign so far, having conceded in the final moments of their shock opening defeat against Young Boys before grabbing winners in the final 10 minutes of comeback victories over Villarreal and Atalanta.
There could well be more of the same against La Dea, who have seen goals scored from the 81st minute onwards in each of their last six fixtures.
Atalanta vs Manchester United tips & predictions
With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team seeing goalmouth action after the 77th minute in eight of their last 11 games, odds of 5/6 (1.83) seem generous on them producing more late drama against Atalanta.
