Manchester City Starting XI Prediction vs Atalanta (Champions League)

Share

Manchester City look to make it a perfect nine points acquired from nine points possible in UCL group stage play when they host Atalanta on Tuesday night. The Sky Blues currently lead Group C, having beaten Shakhtar Donetsk and Dinamo Zagreb thus far.

They are heavily favored to win here, and thus make it perfect in the first meetings against all the others sides in their grouping. Atalanta have only lost three of their last 16 European matches, however they have lost both of their UCL matches thus far this term.

The Serie A club performed quite well the last time they went to England for a European clash, as they pounded Everton 5-1 a 2017-18 Europa League group stage clash. That said, let’s take a look at who Pep Guardiola might select for his first team in this one.
