Atalanta vs Midtjylland
UEFA Champions League
Date: Tuesday, 1 December 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Gewiss Stadium.
The Wolves are from the Danish Superliga – quite easily the worst domestic competition compared to the other three in Group D. They are placed dead last in the table with a 100% losing record, and have already ensured elimination. They do not have a chance to even qualify for the Europa.
Suffice it to say that they have no motivation left to play the remaining games. Moreover, they have conceded the most number of goals so far, and have also scored the least.
Meanwhile, La Dea ara tied with Ajax in case of points, and are placed in the third spot. However, the second-placed Ajax are taking on Liverpool, and that too at Anfield. There’s good chance that Ajax could drop points, and this presents a huge opportunity for the Italians.
Should they secure the three points against the weakest squad in the group, they could improve their chances manifold to get to the Round of 16 .
Judging the struggles of Brian Priske’s men, expect Atalanta to deliver the win this Tuesday.
Atalanta vs Midtjylland: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Gian Piero Gasperini’s men recorded a 0-4 on the road in the reverse fixture.
- They have a 100% unbeaten record against other Danish teams, and have not conceded a single goal so far in such fixtures.
- The Wolves have a 100% losing record against other Italian squads.
- They have conceded four or more goals in all of those games.
Atalanta vs Midtjylland: Prediction
La Dea recorded a 0-2 win at Anfield the last match-day, against six-time European champions Liverpool. This has been the only defeat for the Reds in regular time at home this whole year.
In the meantime, Priske’s men lost 3-1 on the road against Ajax the past game week. Going on, they were also winless in five of their former eight overall match-ups, and they remained so in ten of their former fifteen fixtures on the road.
They also have a 100% losing record in the competition this season, and have conceded the most number of goals. Furthermore, they have a 100% losing record in h2h encounters over the years, and have lost every single one of their match-ups against other Italians teams as well.
In fact, the Wolves have conceded four or more goals in all of their fixtures against Serie A teams, including La Dea.
As such, expect Atalanta to record a huge win this Tuesday at home, against the already eliminated Midtjylland, and to score in plenty as well.
