Atalanta vs PSG: French champs have clear edge in class

Atalanta vs PSG: French champs have clear edge in class

PSG are fancied to have just too much nous for Atalanta in their single-leg Champions League quarter-final tie in Lisbon.

The French aristocrats may be hampered by a lack of match sharpness but have the class to cope against opponents who look in too deep at this level.

Punters can get 13/10 for Thomas Tuchel’s team to do the business in normal time and that is our first Atalanta vs PSG prediction.

A Look At Atalanta’s Betting Odds

Atalanta’s maiden Champions League voyage looked set to sink without trace when they opened up with three straight defeats, conceding 11 goals in the process.

However, a home draw with Manchester City and wins over Dinamo Zagreb and Shakhtar Donetsk proved enough to scrape through.

Valencia were then beaten 8-4 on aggregate, with La Dea prevailing 4-1 in Italy and 4-3 in Spain.

Gian Piero Gasperini’s side returned from lockdown in great form, rattling off six straight Serie A wins before a 2-2 draw at Juventus.

Recent results have just raised a few question marks, though, with Atalanta only sharing the spoils against Verona and AC Milan prior to a 2-0 home loss to Inter.

That defeat cost La Dea second place behind Juventus and the feeling is that they have punched above their weight in finishing that high.

Duvan Zapata and Luis Muriel both scored 18 goals in Italy’s top flight but have failed to impress in European action.

Looking at the Atalanta vs PSG odds, we like 333/100 for the French champions to oblige by a one-goal margin.

A Look At Paris Saint-Germain’s Betting Odds

PSG powered through their pool when posting five wins and a draw at Real Madrid to finish five points clear of the Spanish giants.

A 2-1 loss away to Borussia Dortmund in the first knockout round had alarm bells ringing, but a 2-0 triumph in Paris turned the tie around.

Neymar netted in both of those matches and it makes a welcome change for him to be fit and fresh for the latter stages of this tournament.

There are doubts over Kylian Mbappe after he suffered an ankle injury during PSG’s recent French Cup final versus St Etienne, which they won on penalties.

However, Angel Di Maria and Mauro Icardi head a strong supporting cast capable of getting the job done.

After being Champions League pretenders for a few years now, PSG will see this season as a chance to be genuine contenders.

A kind draw will see them face RB Leipzig or Atletico Madrid in the semis if progressing.

Let’s finish off our Atalanta vs PSG betting tips by taking 35/4 for Neymar and Co to prevail 2-1.
