Manchester City: In front of a weak opponent ( Recent Form: W W W L W )

After two thoroughly dominant championships in England's Upper House of Football in a row, the national dominance of Manchester City seemed to be broken for now. After eight games, there was already a gap of eight points to Jürgen Klopp's Reds, who had not lost so far before. Also, because the Citizens already lost two of their eight season games. There was a sensational 2: 3 defeat away to Norwich City, while the last home game before the break was similar to a 2-0 loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers. Results in which many observers of the Premier League are surprised to have rubbed their eyes. Eventually, City only gave away a star player with the aged Danilo, but with Joao Cancelo in that same position, he was once again absolutely first-rate. There were also promising players like Rodri and Angelino. The now multi-billion dollar club was thus again this summer converted around 170 million euros alone to transfer fees on the transfer market. All involved were all the more relieved when after the international break away at Crystal Palace a 2: 0 victory could be retracted, which could have turned out to be even higher from the game shares. 21 chances created the Guardiola selection and brought proud ten shots on the opposing goal. Good values, which are now also in the Champions League to get back on the pitch. There Manchester City against Atalanta Bergamo, according to odds, the bookmaker is the big favorite, although the Sky Blues lost at least six of their last 17 European competitive matches. As dominant as they have been at the national level in the last two years, they are always vulnerable to international matches. Only last season there was in the group stage at home a 1: 2 defeat against Olympique Lyon. Of course, it must be clearly stated that City has not fired against the alleged underdogs Dinamo Zagreb and Shakhtar Donetsk and is leading the group C with two wins, five own goals and still zero goals with a white jacket. However, with Atalanta Bergamo now comes a team in the Etihad Stadium, which despite the two miserable results by no means back in it and passively participates in the game. Rather, the Orobici are known for their aggressive offensive football and also stand with their backs to the wall.


Atalanta: With effective attacks ( Recent Form: W W L W D )

The Nerazzurri were the first to make it to third place in Serie A this summer - their best season-to-date finish so far, which also brought the Lombardy club into the UEFA Champions League for the first time in history Has. At the national level, the surprising 2: 3 home defeat against the garnet Turin from the second matchday was the only remaining slip-up. Thus, "La Dea" is currently again in third place in Italy, although the dress rehearsal for the premier class on Saturday was extremely curious. With 3: 0 led the team of Gian Piero Gasperini after 37 minutes already at Lazio, before in the second round also because of two penalties the game was still poured down: The 3-3 final score was a small damper for the rising power in the north of the country. Add to this the fact that the debutant in the Champions League had to pay so far a lot of apprenticeship. In their very first match at Dinamo Zagreb, "La Dea" fought a fierce 0-4 clash at the Modri ​​before beating their home debut on matchday two, even though Atalanta were over for Giuseppe-Meazza's bid to reach Milan Stadium had to dodge. The Orobici did not bring any luck, because against Schachtjor Donetsk, the 1-0 lead by superstar Duván Zapata was finally lost. The goal of Manor Solomon in the fifth minute of stoppage time sealed in the end even the second defeat in the second game. Especially bitter: Just that Zapata is missing injured against Manchester City. Two aspects that speak at Manchester City against Atalanta Bergamo against a tip on the Italians, whose coach in 2011 once hosted at Pep Guardiola and the Catalans very much. Nevertheless, it is expected that the Nerazzurri will be offensive in England as usual. And maybe the debutante is good at not having to be in the favorites role in the third game, but being able to play as an underdog himself. The playful potential to at least annoy the favorites brings the small club from Lombardy certainly, although of course a lot of converge. If the Gasperini selection conjures up a similarly strong first half in the field as against Lazio, a surprise should at least not be ruled out prematurely.



After all, playing at home with outstanding level, it is not difficult for Manchester City to defeat Atalanta in the third match here, even a jubilant victory for the representative from England because of the return of "super midfielder" Kevin De Bruyne, the attacks of "The Citizens" like tiger grows more wings and with lax defense of Atalanta, it is too difficult to stand.
