Our prediction for this Champions League match:
All eyes will be on Gewiss Stadium when Atalanta and Ajax face each other in the Champions League Group D derby. The Orobici have been impressive in front of goal in the elite competition this season, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Liverpool. Seeing that influential attacker Josip Ilicic is back to contention, we are positive that the hosts are going to find the net in Tuesday’s showdown.
The Reds, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought 2-0 win over Midtjylland where Jurgen Klopp rested a number of first-team regulars. The German tactician is likely to field the best possible side against Atalanta, and seeing that key defender Virgil van Dijk remains in the recovery room, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. This will be the first meeting between the two clubs in European competitions.
