There were no previous head to head meetings between Midtjylland and Atalanta.
Midtjylland vs Atalanta Prediction
In case you are not following Scandinavian football, Midtjylland actually have very similar playstyle as Atalanta. They are mainly focused on offense, usually starting with very aggressive formations.
Their last three games for example ended Over 3.5 goals against Slavia Prague, Horsens and OB Odense.
The 22-years old midfielder Anders Dreyer has been the key player for the Bears in the last couple of months. He scored two domestic goals and provided a couple of assists for teammates as well.
Overall, Midtjylland’s expectations from the first UCL experience are low. They are placed in group of death with Ajax and Liverpool, so even a 3rd place would be great.
Atalanta’s 100% win rate in Italian Serie A was ruined during the last weekend. They were shockingly defeated on the road against Napoli 1-4 FT, conceding all four within 20 minutes.
The team is still doing really good domestically, having nine points from four games.
Atalanta scored 14 goals in those duels, so we are expecting to see nothing less but a high scoring affair in Herning.
