Coming into this fixture, last year's quarter-finalists, Atalanta, are in decent form as they sit in the second position in Group D of the UEFA Champions League. So far, they have faced clubs of Midtjylland and Ajax taking four points and scoring six goals.
In the last fixture, Atalanta drew with Ajax 2-2, and with the similarity of ability in Ajax and Liverpool, a similar repeat of this result could occur. Liverpool also look in great form, winning both of their fixtures against Midtjylland and Ajax without conceding a goal.
However, with only one senior defender of Joe Gomez fully fit, Jurgen Klopp may have to field young Rhys Williams in the starting lineup, which could tease the fierce Atalanta attacking style. With the Reds weak defensively and the Italian side in great goalscoring form, large numbers of goals should be predicted in this tie with both sides needing a win to go top of the group.
Currently, BTTS and over 3.5 goals in the match between Atalanta and Liverpool are priced at odds of 11/10.
