Champions League - Manchester United vs Atalanta prediction, team news, lineup

Manchester United will be seeking to rebound from a streak of poor performances when they will take on Atalanta BC in Champions League action on Wednesday at Old Trafford. At the weekend the hosts were defeated by Leicester City and are currently third in Group F, while their forthcoming opponents are first in the group and are coming off a great Serie A triumph. Here is our expert guess on Manchester United vs Atalanta football prediction for the Champions League match of the season.

Team news

Manchester United

Fred and Edinson Cavani are likely to play against Atalanta after they arrived late from international service and missed to play in Saturday’s 4-2 loss to Leicester.

While Harry Maguire has returned to action sooner than planned and will start in defense, Raphael Varane, Amad Diallo, and Anthony Martial are all sidelined.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s suspension has been reduced to one game, making him available to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.


Hans Hateboer and Robin Gosens are out due to injures and will be replaced by Davide Zappacosta and Joakim Maehle in the right and left wing-back respectively.

On the bench, Matteo Pessina and Berat Djimsiti join the duo.

After his brace against Empoli, Josip Ilicic will be looking for a start at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.

Manchester United vs Atalanta Prediction

On Saturday, Manchester United took the lead against Leicester but the Foxes fought back and eventually lost 4-2. The pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has increased as a result of his two wins in seven games.

The Italians have won four of their past six matches in all competitions and have yet to lose on the road this season.

It wouldn’t be surprising if Atalanta returned to Italy with a positive outcome given their recent form.

Match Facts

In Man United’s last nine games, there have been more than 2.5 goals scored (Champions League).


Manchester United possible starting lineup: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; McTominay, Pogba; Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford; Ronaldo

Atalanta BC possible starting lineup: Musso; Palomino, Demiral, Toloi; Zappacosta, Freuler, De Roon, Maehle; Malinovskyi, Ilicic; Zapata

Our Prediction: Manchester United 2 – 2 Atalanta
