Manchester City v Atalanta

Manchester City will look to make it three wins from three Champions League matches when they welcome Atalanta to the Etihad Stadium.

The reigning Premier League champions have already beaten Dinamo Zagreb and Shakhtar Donetsk this season, and they have yet to concede a goal from their first two matches.
They will meet the Italian outfit for the first time in European competition, and Atalanta will need to produce their best after losing their first two games.
City have only lost on two occasions all season, but they still sit six points behind Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table.
Atalanta have only lost one league game all season, but Tuesday’s encounter promises to be their toughest test of the new campaign.
City coach Pep Guardiola looks set to recall John Stones after he stepped off the bench in Saturday’s 2-0 win over Crystal Palace.
That should allow Fernandinho or Rodri to push into midfield, with Nicolas Otamendi also ready to start after overcoming a knock.
On the other hand, Atalanta manager Gian Piero Gasperini could be facing a number of selection headaches. Leading scorer Duvan Zapata is struggling with a thigh issue, meaning Luis Muriel could start after grabbing a brace in the 3-3 draw with Lazio.
Midfielder Marten de Roon is pushing for a recall, while Ruslan Malinovskiy could be one to watch after a superb start to the season.

It’s been a difficult start to the season for Manchester City, with shock defeats to Norwich and Wolves seeing them fall eight points behind Liverpool in the Premier League, with injuries at the back exposing defensive flaws.

But they closed the gap to six points on the weekend as they managed a professional 2-0 victory away at high-flying Crystal Palace, despite playing midfielders Rodrigo and Fernandinho in defence.

City have only faced eight shots in the Champions League so far, seven fewer than any other side in the competition, and they’ve yet to concede, having beaten Shakhtar Donetsk 3-0 and Dinamo Zagreb 2-0.

Key players Sergio Aguero (eight goals in eight Premier League appearances so far this season) and Riyad Mahrez are expected to return to the team here, having been rested at the weekend. 

Visitors Atalanta were hyped by pundits after achieving a surprise third-place finish in Serie A last season, a place they currently occupy eight games into the new season.

But they’ve made a terrible start to life in the Champions League, losing 4-0 away to Dinamo Zagreb and 2-1 at home to Shakhtar, results in complete contrast to their strong league form - five wins, two draws and one defeat in Serie A. Though they will have been disappointed to draw 3-3 with Lazio at the weekend after leading three goals to the good at half-time. 

Key man Duvan Zapata, Atalanta’s top scorer last season with 28 goals in all competitions, is sidelined, meaning his Colombian compatriot Luis Muriel will lead the line. He scored a brace against Lazio at the weekend, taking his tally to five goals from four league appearances. 

This is a tough test for City. Given the visitors’ firepower, we expect their makeshift defence to be breached but we still recommend backing a City win.  

Recommendation

Man City to win and both teams to score – 11/10 with Bet365

    Manchester City 5-1 Atalanta

    Date published: 10/23/2019 1:15:50 PM

    Manchester City 5-1 Atalanta

    Raheem Sterling scored a hat-trick as ten-man Manchester City continued their winning start in Champions League Group C with a 5-1 thrashing of Atalanta.

    There were four changes to the City side that beat Crystal Palace 2-0 in the Premier League at the weekend as Phil Foden, Kyle Walker, Riyad Mahrez and Sergio Aguero replaced Joao Cancelo, Gabriel Jesus, Bernardo Silva and David Silva.

    City started slowly at the Etihad Stadium and they were almost made to pay in the 12th minute when Timothy Castagne got in front of Benjamin Mendy put powered his header just wide after good work from Robin Gosens down the left.

    Josip Ilicic then finished off a quick Atalanta counter-attack on 19 minutes as he cut inside from the right and forced Ederson into a low save.

    City’s first effort of note came on 25 minutes when Aguero cut inside Rafael Toloi and curled a left-foot shot towards the far corner which Pierluigi Gollini managed to save with his finger-tips.

    However, it was Atalanta who took the lead in the 28th minute when Ruslan Malinovskiy sent Ederson the wrong way from the penalty spot after Fernandinho was guilty of bringing down Ilcic inside the area.

    The Italian side’s advantage lasted only six minutes before City got on level terms.

    Raheem Sterling’s cross dropped over the head of Andrea Masiello and to the feet of Aguero who marked his 100th European appearance by firing his shot through the legs of Gollini.

    It was 2-1 on 38 minutes when Aguero grabbed his second in the space of four minutes as he converted a penalty after Sterling was clearly tripped by Masiello inside the box.

    City stepped up a gear after the interval and it was no surprise when they made it 3-1 after 58 minutes.

    Kevin De Bruyne did well to square the ball towards Foden and he unselfishly flicked it on again into the path of Sterling who opened his account on the night.

    Ilicic should have pulled one back on 62 minutes but blasted his shot straight at Ederson, before City put the tie beyond doubt just two minutes later.

    Ilkay Gundogan sent Sterling away down the left channel and he raced past Toloi before sending Gollini the wrong way with his effort inside the area for his second.

    Ilicic thought he had got on the scoresheet moments later, but he was offside when he tucked away the rebound after Remo Freuler smashed the post.

    To rub salt into the Atalanta wounds, Sterling completed an 11-minute hat-trick to make it 5-1 on 69 minutes as he turned in the rebound after Aguero was denied by Gollini.

    Sterling should have scored his fourth of the game on 76 minutes when Foden sent him through on goal, but he dragged his effort wide with just Gollini to beat.

    The tie ended on a sour note for City and Foden when he was red-carded for two bookable offences with just eight minutes remaining.

    City are now five points clear at the top of the group and on course for the knockout stages, while Atalanta are bottom and pointless.
