Atalanta vs Man Utd: Red Devils look back on track

Kick-off: 2000, 02/11/2021

Stadium: Gewiss Stadium

TV: BT Sport

Manchester United looked to have found their ideal formation when winning at Tottenham and can follow up by beating Atalanta in Italy.

Switching to a 3-4-1-2 set-up prompted an instant and significant improvement from the Red Devils, easing the pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, too.

We’re now happy to take 11/8 for them to do the double over La Dea for our first Atalanta vs Man Utd prediction.

A Look At Atalanta’s Betting Odds

Atalanta showed they can trouble United going forward when taking a 2-0 half-time lead at Old Trafford a fortnight ago.

Mario Pasalic and Merih Demiral put La Dea in control but they were dominated throughout the second period and ultimately fell to a 3-2 defeat.

Injuries to top defenders Berat Djimsiti, Rafael Toloi, Robin Gosens and Hans Hateboer have hurt Gian Piero Gasperini’s side this term.

In this competition, they kicked off with a 2-2 draw away to Villarreal before edging out Young Boys and then losing to United.

Fifth place in Serie A is a fair reflection of their domestic efforts, with Atalanta’s home form far from impressive.

Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Lazio means they have only beaten Sassuolo from six outings at Gewiss Stadium, tasting defeat against Fiorentina and AC Milan.

Both teams have scored in the last five Serie A fixtures at this venue, so Atalanta vs Man Utd odds.

A Look At Manchester United’s Betting Odds

United are two points clear at the top of Group F after bouncing back from a surprise loss to Young Boys with come-from-behind wins over Villarreal and Atalanta.

The irrepressible Cristiano Ronaldo grabbed a dramatic stoppage-time decider versus the Spanish outfit and headed in a superb winner against La Dea.

The Red Devils had been struggling in the Premier League, picking up just one point in four games following an embarrassing 5-0 loss to Liverpool on home turf.

However, Saturday’s 3-0 triumph at Tottenham was much more like the domestic form which helped them finish second in the table last term.

Ronaldo opened the scoring versus Spurs with a clinical volley before setting up Edinson Cavani to double the advantage and Marcus Rashford struck on the break late on.

Solskjaer hailed the impact made by Cavani coming into the starting line-up, stating: “He led the line, he was a good example for everyone of how to go about changing the mood and the performance.”

Cavani’s record in Europe for Napoli, PSG and his current club is outstanding, netting 55 times from 90 games in all competitions.

Let’s add 12/5 for the Uruguay striker to score in an away win to our Atalanta vs Man Utd betting tips.
