Atalanta v PSG, UCL QF
Estadio da Luz in Lisbon is the venue of the first Champions League quarter-final pitting high Atalanta taking on the French champions Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday evening.
Not many predicted Atalanta would still be in the thick of things at this stage of the campaign. They have gone toe-to-toe with the best of them both in the domestic league and in the Champions League. They finished third in the Serie A and scored a record-setting 98 league goals. They also whooped Valencia 8-4 on aggregate in the round of 16 to put the rest of the field on notice.
While their attack has been splendid, their biggest issue has been at the back. They have conceded more goals than the rest of the quarter-finalists.
They have also had a bit of a setback in recent matches with attacking midfielder Josip Ilicic who has been the centrepiece of their attack this season set to miss this game. He has been out for almost a month now and is said to be dealing with a personal.
PSG are on a quest for a historic quadruple. They have won three domestic titles – the French League, the French Cup and the League Cup. The Champions League is, however, the one cup that has eluded them in their history. They did well to overcome Dortmund 2-0 in the second leg of their round of 16 tie after falling 2-1 in the first leg in Germany.
Unlike other European leagues that opted for a restart following the stoppage, the French League ended early and PSG were declared champions as they already had a comfortable cushion at the top. PSG, as a result, have only had the cup finals and friendly games to keep themselves engaged ahead of this tie.

ATALANTA V PSG BETTING PREDICTIONS
This game could well be the most intriguing match of the tie. The sheer show of attacking force the two teams bring to the table means we will likely be treated to a spectacle. Atalanta have scored 98 goals in the Serie A this season. PSG were also on course to shattering goal scoring records in Ligue 1 after scoring 75 goals in the 27 games played before the league was truncated. While games at this stage tend to be cagey and reserved, this might be the one game that may prove to be the exception. 1xBet betting app’s both teams to score option is priced at 1.55 and we are going with it for our first betting tip for the game.
With Kylian Mbappe likely to miss the game or perhaps just make a cameo appearance from the bench, the goal-scoring responsibility for PSG lies squarely on the shoulders of their other superstar, Neymar. He missed both of the games against Dortmund and he will be keen to get back to his groove. He had scored in his three previous champions league games prior to his injury. He has also looked really good in the friendlies and in practice and as always, is on penalty responsibilities for PSG. We fancy him to score anytime @ 1.90 with 1xBet as our final betting tip for this clash.
