Atalanta: Dramatic Champions League debut ( Recent Form: W L D W W )

The Italian subtopper has an excellent start to the Serie A. With thirteen points from six games, Atalanta is running well on schedule to compete in the top of the competition. Victories against Sassuolo, Roma, Genoa and SPAL ensured that the team of Hans Hateboer and Marten de Roon now have a lead over Roma, Napoli and Lazio. However, football is not too sparkling and La Deawint is not as convincing as it was last season. Yet Atalanta is starting to regain its shape and the club has been unbeaten for three games now. The Champions League debut of Atalanta was pretty weak. The president of the club told the press to be ready and hungry, but there was no sign of this in the opening match against Dinamo Zagreb. Atalanta was outclassed on all fronts and it became a bizarre 4-0 defeat. Although the team with players like Alejandro Gomez, Luis Muriel and Duvan Zapata normally find the goal so easily, they didn't even score. As the stadium of Atalanta does not meet the UEFA requirements, the club will play the European home games in San Siro. AC Milan does not play European football this year and therefore makes its stadium available to Atalanta. Last season the home games took place in the stadium of Sassuolo. The home debut of the blue-blacks will therefore take place on Tuesday evening in Milan.


Shakhtar Donetsk: Suffered expected defeat ( Recent Form: D W L W W )

The Ukrainian leader has an excellent season. The season is now halfway and Shakhtar is still flawless. In nine games, each game ended in a winning way, which is why they have a maximum score of 27 points. That is already a gap of ten to second place. The winner of the double leads the competition annually and with players such as Marlos, Taison and Junior Moraes this is also not a particularly impressive achievement. The latter in particular must take care of the goals and he runs one-on-one in the Ukrainian Premier League in terms of goals. Still, Shakhtar did not stand a chance in the Champions League against Manchester City, but as mentioned earlier, this was a calculated defeat. Shakhtar played well, but the class difference became clear. At halftime there was 0-2 on the scoreboard and this result only went to 0-3. Manchester City hit the brakes and Shakhtar can be happy that the score did not turn out higher.



After all, the clubs both do well in the national competitions, but also had to deal with a setback in the continental competition. For Atalanta, the setback was slightly harder than that of Shakhtar. Although in my eyes the clubs are more equal than the odds suggest, I expect Atalanta to take the win. The club must switch quickly after the 4-0 defeat to the Croatian champion to have some chance of survival. In their debut match in their own country, I expect Atalanta, just like past Serie A games, to be victorious and I think the individual quality in the attack (from players like Papu Gomez, Duvan Zapata and Josep Ilicic) will make the difference.
