Atalanta vs Apollon: Preview and Predictions

Atalanta vs Apollon
UEFA Europa League
Date: 19th October 2017
Kick off at 20:05 UK/ 21:05 CET
Venue: MAPEI Stadium – Citta del Tricolore (Reggio Emilia).

Atalanta picked up four points from clashes with Everton and Lyon and a six-point campaign from back-to-back outings with the group underdogs would launch them into the knockout stage of the competition.


The hosts looked super strong in the final third at the start of the season in both Serie A and Europa League.

A series of tougher fixtures saw them remaining winless in last four outings in all competitions, but the clash with the Cypriot outfit is a perfect occasion for the team from Bergamo to return on the winning ways.

Gianpiero Gasperini’s men tend to score loads at home where they bagged as many as 16 during the streak of four wins and a draw which came against Serie A holders Juventus.


The Cypriots did to have much to hope for when the groups were drawn, but Sofronis Avgousti can be proud to see his side sit at the second place after opening two fixtures.

Apollon managed a massive point from Goodison two weeks ago even though they had a man down late in the second half.

This is a massive opportunity for the Italians and we honestly doubt they’ll blow it up.
