Atalanta vs Liverpool: Betting Preview

Atalanta vs Liverpool Match Preview

Atalanta receives Liverpool with a foot already set on the Europa League semifinals. The 3-0 win at Anfield gives the Italian team a massive lead that only a miracle can change.

Gian Piero Gasperini’s side find themselves in a scenario so good it is hard to think even they imagined when the draw faced them with Liverpool. A 2-2 draw on the weekend against Verona dented their push for a Champions League spot via the Serie A. However, all the focus is on closing this tie at home. The winner of this tie will meet Benfica or Olympique Marseille in the semifinals.

Last week was probably the worst of the season for Liverpool. It started by dropping points at Old Trafford with a 2-2 draw in a game that was completely one-sided until errors let Manchester United get back in the game. That was followed by the midweek disaster at Anfield. Finally, on Sunday Crystal Palace landed the final blow beating them 1-0 at home again to lose the lead of the Premier League.

The Reds now face an almost impossible task if they want to revert the tie on Bergamo, especially with a lot of question marks over their current form. The only glimpse of hope for Jürgen Klopp is a distant memory of the UEFA Champions League 2020/21 group stage where they beat Atalanta 5-0 in Italy.

Atalanta vs Liverpool Prediction

Liverpool win at 1.65 / Atalanta To advance at 1.14

Liverpool will try to go to Bergamo in search of a result but most importantly to get back to winning ways. They have not won in three consecutive games across all competitions, and they know more than anyone that to overturn this deficit, their form will have to improve very quickly.

Atalanta did all the heavy lifting at Anfield. Gasperini will assemble his side in the same collectively organized way he did at Anfield to protect the first-leg result without taking unnecessary risks. Liverpool will face the sense of urgency to score and if the first goal does not come fast it may then be too late.

Atalanta vs Liverpool Tips

Both teams to score at 1.44

Even though Liverpool has not found the back of the net in their last two games, it seemed miraculous that not even one of their chances went in. Besides this current run, we have to go back to December 2023 to find the last game where Liverpool did not score.

Atalanta themselves has scored in eight of their last nine games. Plus, it is also important to point out Liverpool has not had a clean sheet in their last nine. A clear issue for Klopp to solve in what is his final season as coach of Liverpool.
