Atlanta vs Manchester United predictions
Atalanta is one of the funniest teams in Europe, and they almost scored an unforgettable win against Manchester United a few days ago. They are missing some important players, but they are still one of the best teams in Italy at the moment.
On the other hand, Manchester United were in crisis mode after losing 5-0 to arch-rivals Liverpool last week. A win over Tottenham Hotspur would give Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the much-needed breathing space. The Norwegian looked likely to leave the club after Liverpool’s loss, and there were reports that Antonio Conte was still interested.
Manchester United should win, although you never know with the Red Devils.
