Atalanta - Midtjylland
Tonight, at 9 pm, in the fifth round of the group stage of the competition in the Champions League, the teams of Atalanta and Midtjylland will compete.
In the course of the competition so far, Atalanta has collected 7 points and enters the finals with a good chance to be in the knockout phase of the competition, for this achievement it will definitely need a victory against the outsider Midtjylland, who failed to win any points in the first 4 rounds. They recorded the most convincing defeat in the first round against Atalanta when it was 4:0 for the Italian team in Denmark. Lately, Atalanta has been playing on the principle of warm-cold, in the domestic championship they don t really bloom roses, while in Europe they provide solid games and tonight they will have a good opportunity they would be in a good position before the last round with a victory. Atalanta will have several absences in this match as far as the lineup is concerned, but they are all players who have not competed for the team for some time and tonight Atalanta performed a very good lineup, attacking as always with Muriel, Zapata and Gomez who will be striking home team tonight. As for the Midtjylland team, they have no competitive ambitions tonight as they will finish in the last place in the group in the Champions League, but they will certainly not come with a white flag but will play for honor when they no longer have competitive motives. As for the guests, their biggest problem will certainly be the absence of the starting defender Sviatchenko, who received a red card in the last match and has no right to play tonight, which should make Atalanta s job even easier.
In any case, I think that Atalanta is a much better rival, they are playing in a strong team, they need a victory tonight, on the other hand it is a rival that has no motive, last time it was 4:0 in a duel of the same rivals, so everything is on the side Atalanta tonight and I expect from them a good game tonight and another convincing victory.
