In the second half, the home team pulled out all the stops and scored the goal that seemed to put an end to the visitors, however, Cristiano Ronaldo would appear again to tie things and give the Red Devil's a sigh of relief.

2:43 PMa month ago

What can we expect for this match?

The second part of this episode that left us great emotions last week, is presented on Italian soil. The home team must know that it is important to win at home to move up in Group F, although the defensive balance has left something to be desired, the offense has been a very important point for Atalanta's momentum.

The Manchester team has in its hands the qualification, having a good performance in terms of results, but not in terms of play. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's squad must improve significantly if they want to qualify as top of the group, having as main aspect their offense.

2:42 PMa month ago

News of the team

The star of the Reds' attack is the Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo, who has scored 2 goals in the current edition of the Uefa Champions League. The absentees confirmed by the visitors are Victor Lindelof and Anthony Martial due to injury.
2:38 PMa month ago

Let's talk about Manchester United

The Red Devils came from behind to come out on top at Old Trafford against the Italians, but also showed that they are a very unstable team when it comes to home games, as well as their performance in Champions League matches.

The squad, led by Norwegian coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, pulled off a dramatic comeback, led by the emergence of striker Edinson Cavani and Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored the winning goal. The Manchester Reds have 6 points at the top of the group and a win in Italy would be very prolific for their aspirations to reach the next round.

The visiting Red Devils are on a run of 1 win and 3 defeats in their last 4 UEFA Champions League away matches, where the English scored in each of the games.

2:33 PMa month ago

Let's talk about Atalanta

The team from Bergamo suffered a crushing defeat at the "theater of dreams" against Manchester United by a score of (3-2) in the last Champions League matchday. Despite having taken a 2-0 lead, the Italians were overwhelmed by the English onslaught, which ended up deciding the game in the last minutes for the home side.

The Italian squad, led by coach Gian Piero Gasperini, had an unbeatable opportunity to give a blow on the table in group F, and climb up the group's standings.

The Italian team has a streak of 1 win, 2 draws and 1 loss in its last 5 home games, where the home side has always scored at least 1 goal per game in 3 of the 4 matches.

The figurehead of Bergamo's attack is striker Luis Muriel who has a lot of weight in the Italian attack. The Italian team's absentees for this match are Berat Djimsiti, Robin Gosens, Rafael Tolói, Matteo Pessina and Hans Hateboer due to injury.

2:28 PMa month ago

What happened the last time they saw each other's faces?

In the first leg at Olf Trafford, Manchester United beat Atalanta 3-2 with goals from Harry Maguire, the Champions League.  The leader Manchester United has 6 points. Atalanta is in third place with 4 points.
2:23 PMa month ago

How is Atalanta coming along?

The Italians will be looking for a win to stay in the fight for qualification to the next round. Atalanta have the same points as Villarreal, their rival for the second place. The problem for the team from Bergamo is that they have a full infirmary, as Gosens, Toloi, Djimsiti, Hateboer and Pessina will be out for the match. Even so, the most dangerous men up front will be able to play and put the red devils in trouble.
2:18 PMa month ago

They are already at the stadium!

The Manchester United team is already on the pitch to recognize the field of play, the red devil's can today ensure one more day as leaders. 

2:13 PMa month ago

BEAUTIFUL POSTCARD!

This is what the pitch looks like today to host a UEFA Champions League match, a gem of a pitch for both teams. 

2:08 PMa month ago

How are you doing at Manchester United?

Manchester United are on a high after a comprehensive win over Tottenham and breaking Cristiano Ronaldo's goal-scoring streak. Solskjaer has been widely questioned among the fans, but the league result allows him to catch his breath and show that he is capable of getting a good performance out of the team if everyone gets things right. The Red Devils have jumped up the table after the win and are already close to the Champions League places. For the match against Atalanta Solskjaer will not be able to count on Varane, but on Pogba, who missed the last league match due to suspension, and who will be rested for Tuesday's match.
2:03 PMa month ago

The Red Devils' eleven is ready!

This is how Manchester United will go out looking to continue as group leaders, the English could get closer to their qualification today

Both teams faced each other last matchday at the Old Traffor, giving a great match where the Red Devil's came out on top after coming back from an adverse score of 0-2 to 3-2 with the help of the Portuguese star, Cristiano Ronaldo.

Watch out for this Manchester United player:

The best player in the world for himself and others, Portuguese star, legend and idol of several clubs in Europe, Cristiano Ronaldo will be the player to follow for this match. Since his return to the club where he was born as a legend, the Portuguese player has played 806 minutes with the red devil's jersey, he has appeared 10 times in the starting line-up, he has scored 7 times so far this season and assisted once. He has also received 2 yellow cards and has not been sent off, so CR7 will be the player to watch for this match.

1:33 PMa month ago

Watch out for this Atalanta player:

Background:

Atalanta and Manchester United have only met on one occasion in their history and that was two weeks ago on the field of dreams. On that occasion, the team from Bergamo almost won the game after taking a two-goal lead, but they did not count on the audacity of Cristiano Ronaldo, who would end up coming from behind to give the English team the victory.
1:13 PMa month ago

Refereeing team:

For this match, Craig Pawson will be who will serve as the central referee, he will be accompanied by Ian Hussin and Scott Ledger as the assistants 1 and 2 respectively, finally, Michael Salisbury will serve as the fourth referee. In the VAR, referees Michael Oliver and Dan Cook will be in charge of monitoring any dubious play inside the box or that merits a red card.
1:08 PMa month ago

For leaders, none like the Red Devils.

At the moment, Cristiano Ronaldo and company are the leaders of group F in the Champions League with 6 points obtained so far in the competition, they have 2 victories and one loss at the beginning of the championship, they also average 6 goals for and 5 goals against, resulting in a difference of 1. This is one of the most closed groups of the tournament because their pursuers have 4 points and the last one has 3 points, so a defeat could end up costing them dearly when it comes to qualify for the next round. They are also in high spirits as they beat Tottenham 3-0 in the Premier League and are in 5th place in the tournament with 17 points.

1:03 PMa month ago

Looking for the lead

The team from Bergamo, Italy, will seek to be strong at home and with their people when they host Manchester United in another duel of the UEFA Champions League group stage. On the one hand, the local team coached by Gian Piero Gasperini seeks to achieve the feat at home after having fallen hard at the Old Trafford and being a long way from beating the rival at home and with their people. Likewise, so far they have 4 points so far in the tournament, with 1 win, 1 draw and 1 defeat. They also have 5 goals scored and 5 goals conceded, making them one of the most balanced teams in the tournament. In case the Italians get the victory, they could reach the top of the group, however, if they lose, they could fall to the last place in case Young Boys get the victory.

The road to St. Petersburg continues

All great moments began in a dream and there are few lucky ones who can boast in their lives that they once held the Orejona in their arms and were named "kings of Europe". The dream resumes for 32 teams seeking to engrave their name in eternal glory, but to do so, they will have to overcome a long road full of obstacles to reach the main event, St. Petersburg, and have the honor of being crowned as the new champions of the old continent. In group "F", Atalanta and Manchester United will meet again in another group stage match, the local team must win to stay alive in the
