Valencia vs Atalanta Match Preview
The Goddess simply were superior in the first leg in all respects. Hosting Los Ches, they found the back of the net in the 16th minute itself, and increased the lead to 2-0 before first half.
Ten minutes into the latter half, the home team once again scored to take the scoreline to 3-0, and added one more five minutes later.
By then, the first leg, and probably the whole tie was in their control. As a result, the hosts took the pedal off the gas just a bit, which the Spanish outfit utilized to slot in an away goal.
Sensing danger, the home team closed down on all attacks, and prevented Los Ches from scoring another goal.
Usually, the La Liga is considered to be miles ahead of any other league in the world (except may be for the EPL), and as such, a competitive fixture that includes a team from the Spanish league usually swings in their favor.
However, this time around, the Goddess have simply made a joke of that assumption.
Valencia vs Atalanta Prediction
The Italians lead in aggregate 4-1, and Los Ches will have no option to pay heed to defense, and will be forced to attack right from the get-go. They do have the home advantage, but the game will be played without spectators (which will be a huge blow to the Spanish outfit).
The guests who have a three-goal lead, will keep a check on any dangerous attack by the Spanish team ( do keep note that teams from Italy are renowned for their defensive prowess). Playing comparatively relaxed, the Goddess will then try to score goals, taking advantage of the desperation of the home team.
On top of that, the Italians are unbeaten in their past seven fixtures (of which six were wins), and they scored a total of 27 goals in the process. On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in six of their previous seven overall match-ups, and conceded two or more goals in five of these seven games.
Considering the respective forms of both teams, and the huge aggregate lead of the Goddess, it’s predicted that Atalanta will easily put forth an impressive performance in the game.
