Current Form: Atalanta vs Manchester City
Atalanta may be doing solidly in Serie A, but that form has not translated to their debut Champions League campaign. La Dea sit bottom of their group after three games, with zero points to their name and have shipped a whopping 11 goals so far. No one expected them to be able to match wits with Manchester City, but at the very least, some expected them to at least pick up points against the likes of Croatian outfit Dinamo Zagreb and Ukranian side Shakhtar Donetsk.
However, things haven't gone as planned for Gian Piero Gasperini's side, and now they will have to take on the same Manchester City who humiliated them 5-1 in their last meeting. Atalanta come into this game having slumped to a 2-0 defeat to a surprisingly high-flying Cagliari, which is especially disappointing considering they'd recovered from their 5-1 loss to Manchester City by beating Udinese 7-1 and holding Napoli to a two-all draw.
Meanwhile, Manchester City will be gearing up for a top of the table clash with Liverpool over the weekend, but before then, will want to secure their place in the round of 16 by dealing with struggling Atalanta at the Stadio San Siro on Wednesday evening. Pep Guardiola's men are six points behind the Reds in the Premier League table and are on a three game winning streak in the league.
Recently, they beat Southampton in back-to-back clashes in the League Cup (3-1) and in the Premier League (2-1) to make it four straight wins across all comps following their shock 2-0 loss to Crystal Palace on October 19th and will want to head into their crunch clash with Liverpool with another win in hand.
