Atalanta vs Real Madrid, UCL 24.02.2021

13 times Champions League winners Real Madrid travel to Italy to take on Atalanta in the 1st leg of their UEFA Champions League round of 16 knockout this Wednesday. Read on for our expert betting tips and predictions.

ATALANTA

Atalanta have without a doubt been one of the most exciting teams in Europe over the last couple of years. They play an attacking brand of football that has endeared them to many neutrals and football aficionados. They came close to causing a massive upset in last sesason’s quarter-final, leading 1-0 against PSG before unravelling at the end, conceding two goals in injury time to lose out to the Parisians.

This season, they had to work hard to secure second place in their group behind Liverpool by winning two of their final three group games which included a 2-0 win at Anfield.

They are scoring freely in Serie A yet again as they showed in Sunday’s 4-2 home win over Napoli which was the seventh time this term they have netted more than three times in a match in the top flight. This will give them lots of confidence coming into this tough match.

 

 

REAL MADRID

Unlike previous years, Real were made to work hard to stave off elimination from the group stages after some uncharacteristically shaky performances. A 2-0 win over Monchengladbach in the last group game was however enough to clinch top spot ahead of them.

Los Bloncos have picked up the pace in the domestic scene and are locked in a tight La Liga race with their neighbors Atletico who seem to have run out of gas in recent weeks to leave the door wide open for the chasing pack to cut into what seemed like an unassailable lead in the last few weeks.

Zidane will look to take something back to the Bernabeu despite the massive injuries he is dealing with at the moment.

ATALANTA VS REAL MADRID BETTING PREDICTIONS

Being the first-ever meeting between these two teams, we can expect a competitive affair that has all the hallmarks of a potential Champions League thriller. Atalanta has earned the reputation of an all-out attacking and entertaining team and they will certainly look to live up to this billing. Real, despite the injuries, still have enough within their rank and file to cause some problems to the Atalanta backline. We feel this game will serve plenty of goals but we will stick to the conservative Over 2.5 goal market @ 1.63 with Ogabet bookmaker review for our initial call.

The Real Madrid injury report seems to have tilted the odds in favor of Atalanta in recent days. Already shorthanded after injuries to Marcelo, Sergio Ramos and Eden Hazard, Zinedine Zidane was dealt a tough hand at the weekend with Karim Benzema heading to the treatment table leaving the Frenchman with a thin squad. Atalanta is likely to smell blood and try and make the most of this situation in the first leg. They certainly have what it takes and have shown they can mix it up with the big boys. We are therefore backing them to get the win here (draw no bet) @ 1.67 as our last shout here.
