Atalanta have been stumbling in all of their Champions League clashes so far, that too by alarming margins in most. With their previous h2h meeting turning into a nightmare, count on Manchester City to pile on the misery this week.

Atalanta vs Manchester City Prediction
Atalanta have been reduced to the whipping boys of Group C, where they have hit rock bottom with back to back defeats in their last three games. The hosts are yet to ensure consistency in the domestic campaign as well. And have been alternating between wins and draw in their previous four Serie A clashes.
It is also worth noting that Atalanta have been struggling to get their names on the scoresheet, let alone emerge victoriously, and have found the back of the net just twice so far in the Champions League, whilst conceding eleven.
On the other hand, Manchester City are arguably one of the fiercest sides in Europe at the moment. The visitors have secured maximum points in the group so far, and have done so by a two-goal margin or more in each of their matchups. Furthermore, the away side have been tasting nothing but success in their last four outings in all competitions, the last of which was a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace back in the Premier League.
Pep Guardiola’s men have also been looking sharp in carrying out their defensive duties and have conceded just twice in their previous five games. Taking into account that their previous meeting also witnessed Manchester City run riot over this foe, Atalanta surely have no chance of salvaging even a point in this one.
Additionally, the visiting contingent been merciless towards their foes and have scored two goals or more in each of their Champions League clashes. Raheem Sterling, in particular, has found the back of the net four times already for the English outfit. Three of which, came against this very same foe.
With Atalanta conceding eleven goals already, Manchester City will certainly be eying the possibility of racking up the goals tally in this one. Hence, expect over 3.5 goals on the charts by all means.
