Liverpool vs Atalanta Betting Tips & Predictions
Liverpool currently have an injury list as long as your arm, with the international break not proving particularly helpful for Jurgen Klopp considering that Joe Gomez, Andy Robertson and Mohamed Salah all return to England looking like they’re unavailable.
Salah has tested positive for COVID-19, while Gomez and Robertson join Virgil van Dijk and Trent Alexander-Arnold in the treatment room and that means that Liverpool will be far from full-strength when they line up in this Champions League clash.
Bet on Liverpool and Atalanta to Deliver Goals
The reverse fixture in Bergamo saw Liverpool claim a 5-0 victory and we’re expecting a similar number of goals to be scored in this clash, even if it might be a move even distribution being netted, with Atalanta usually finding the net in their matches.
Similarly, Klopp will encourage his team to get on the front foot and it was an explosive performance from his attacking players when putting the Serie A team a few weeks ago, with Diogo Jota and Sadio Mane having the capability of shining.
Indeed, even if Salah is missing for a couple of games, Jota can occupy the role vacated by the Egyptian and Roberto Firmino can operate in the central striker role, although there are concerns that a makeshift defence will concede goals.
Why We’re Tipping Over 3.5 Goals in a Champions League Clash
Naturally, Over 2.5 Goals is trading at too short a price, so we are going to tip Over 3.5 Goals at 2.00 (even money) with bet365 and we are happy to bet on that outcome considering that Atalanta are one of the most attacking teams in this competition.
There’s also the fact that the Serie A side essentially need to get something from this game to remain in a strong position to qualify, with the Bergamo side sitting on four points and level with an Ajax side who are likely to beat Midtjylland and potentially steal a march.
