Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Thanks to back-to-back wins over Dinamo Zagreb and Shakhtar Donetsk Atalanta sneaked into the Champions League last 16. The Orobici have not been handed a tough draw as they take on Valencia in the double-header, but boss Gian Piero Gasperini must warn his men against complacency. Anyhow, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the Serie A side, who are a real force to be reckoned with at home.
Atalanta rolled over Milan 5-0 at home in the Italian top flight last month, which is certainly giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Valencia. Los Che, on the other hand, booked their place in the Champions League knockout stages by beating Ajax on the road in their last group game. However, given Atalanta’s current form, we predict that the Spaniards are going to return home empty-handed from the trip to Milano.
