Atalanta vs RB Leipzig
Europa League
Date: Thursday, 14 April 2022
Kick-off at 17:45 UK/ 18:45 CET
Venue: Gewiss Stadium.

Both these teams are going through impressive stretches of performances at the moment. They are slotting in goals in huge numbers, and are absolutely determined to make it to the final-four of the Europa.

Atalanta have faced some minor issues of form, but they have covered it up brilliantly with outstanding results at home. They even showed immense fighting spirit in the first leg, for which they were on the road.

They will also be keen to go all the way in the Europa to win the title, and thus secure a ticket to the next edition of the Champions League – as currently it’s a doubt if they could finish in the top-four of the Serie A.

Meanwhile, Leipzig have been in spectacular form these past few weeks. They are on a long unbeaten run, and particularly on the road they have been on a winning streak. Moreover, they have also been a prime contender to secure a top-four finish in the competitive German top flight.

As these two take on each other this weekend, expect a high-scoring affair at the Gewiss Stadium.
