Atalanta vs Real Madrid Prediction & Tips
Gian Piero Gasperini’s Atalanta are looking to qualify for the quarter-finals of the Champions League for the second year in a row and do so again against a Spanish team. Last year the orobico eleven did it against Valencia while this season the head-to-head will be against the most famous Real Madrid coached by Zinedine Zidane. The Bergamo players have only missed 1 of the last 20 games played in all competitions and even on the last day they gave a football lesson to Napoli by beating Gattuso’s team at home 4-2. After a January full of ups and downs, Real Madrid have returned to winning: 4 out of 4 in the league in February and their last away win in Valladolid 0-1. Hateboer continues to be injured in Atalanta while Real have bigger problems especially behind with four defensive players knocked out: Sergio Ramos, Carvajal, Marcelo and Odriozola. To these is added the striker Rodrygo Goes. Speaking of offensive men, Eden Hazard and Benzema are in doubt, without forgetting the midfielder Valverde.
Atalanta have made 19 useful results (12 wins and 7 draws) in their last 20 competitive matches.
Real Madrid have won from 4 matches and have not conceded 3 goals.
In the season, Atalanta did not shine in the Champions League when they played at home: 2 draws and 1 defeat.
In 5 of the last 7 away matches between all competitions, Real have conceded at least 1 goal.
Real Madrid are without three key defenders and Benzema seems in strong doubt. Let’s start from this figure for our prediction. If Atalanta played as they know, they would also pass against Real with all the players available. In this situation the gamble is worth the odds: sign 1.
