Atalanta vs Liverpool

Sparkles will be flying when Atalanta and Liverpool take on each other at Gewiss Stadium in what is expected to be an interesting Europa League game. The Reds experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 loss to the Orobici at Anfield and, as a result, they need a big win in the return leg. Both Mohamed Salah and Luis Diaz should be recalled to the starting XI after the duo came off the bench in the first leg. While Thiago Alcantara remains in the recovery room alongside Joel Matip.

The Serie A side, on the other hand, are determined to defend their slim lead and we are positive that they will adopt a cautious approach in Thursday’s clash. Anyhow, away win should be considered as Liverpool have no other option but to go all guns blazing at Atalanta. Speaking of the home side, both De Roon and Zappacosta are back from the domestic bans.

Recent head to heads

Liverpool can at least take some comfort knowing that they won 5-0 in their only game in Bergamo in the Champions League four years ago.

Atalanta have now won twice at Anfield.

Players to watch

Gianluca Scamacca has been in brilliant recent form with seven goals in seven games including a double at Anfield and a goal on Monday night. He is 23/10 to score with Phmacao.

Mo Salah has looked out of sorts for a few weeks now, but now would be a good time for the Egyptian to kick into gear. He is 26/25 to score anytime with Phmacao.

Recent Meetings

Each of three head-to-head matches between these two teams ended in an away win. Atalanta have claimed two victories along the way.

Liverpool put five unanswered goals past the Dea in their previous visit to Bergamo in November last year.

None of the previous three H2H clashes saw goals scored at both ends.

Atalanta vs Liverpool Prediction

Liverpool desperately want a rebound win but they do have a mountain to climb to advance and annul a three-goal deficit on Thursday. We expect Klopp to send his strongest XI to the pitch in Italy, especially after a shocking home loss that seriously halted their push for the Premier League title at the weekend. Atalanta have been playing hot and cold since the beginning of the season. They looked fantastic seven days ago at Anfield.

However, they are well capable of producing completely opposite performances. Liverpool are the kind of the team capable of scoring loads on their day. Despite a high-margin win in the first leg for the Italians, this tie is by no means closed. We will back Liverpool to win at the 1.66 odds.

The alternative pick would be Over 3.5 goals at the 2.00 odds. Four of Liverpool’s last seven games in all competitions saw four or more goals scored. We’ve also seen at least three goals in five of Atalanta’s previous six matches across competitions. Liverpool do not have anything to lose here. They need quick goals to try and get themselves back into the tie.
