Expert Betting Tips
Manchester United are considered as favorites to win the upcoming match. I agree with this point of view. Atalanta's attacking style of football pretty suits Manchester United. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team usually plays well with a counter-attacking style. You won’t be surprised to see Man United to perform with 3-5-2 like in a previous game against Tottenham. Lindelof got injured in the last training session, so we should expect Bailly in United’s starting lineup. Atalanta still have big problems in defence. For the upcoming match I suggest betting on Manchester United victory and their total over goals. We also could expect a late goal - an average one goal per game after 80th minute across Group F’s six matches.
