Read our thoughts about this exciting Champions League Manchester City vs Atalanta match, here below.

Manchester City

Manchester City leading the Group C after two confident wins over Dinamo Zagreb and Shakhtar Donetsk. City showed already very strong motivation in winning Champions League or at least fighting till the end. Very strongly built team already proved their domination in Premier League, so times come to show the strength in CL. Being 6 points behind Liverpool in Premier League, Manchester City leading by scored goals, but are less confident in defence. They already lost 2 games against Norwich and Wolves. Wolverhampton stopped Citizens after a very long unbeaten streak in all competitions. They should be angry and very motivated playing against weak Italians.

Leroy Sane, Aymeric Laporte and John Stones will miss next game due to injuries.

Atalanta

The Goddess failed to win both starting games in Champions League. They stand at the last place in Group C and have already almost no chances to take second place even waiting for the game with Manchester City. Being the second favourite of the group before starting this season, Atalanta strongly disappointed their fans after losing to Zagreb and Donetsk. In Italy’s Serie A their form is much better as they lost only 1 match against Torino. Most interesting that in the last match against Lazio, guests Atalanta led the game by 3 goals. However, they failed to save the result till the end and took only 1 point. In the Champions League, Atalanta needs to create a miracle to save little chance to be among qualified teams. However, at the moment they scored only once and conceded 6 goals in 2 matches, still not facing Manchester City.

Unfortunately, most valuable and main striker Duvan Zapata will miss next game due to injury.
