Betting Tip: Liverpool to Win to Nil
Much has been made of Liverpool’s injury crisis, which along with several cases of COVID-19 has left a host of their star performers on the side-lines already this season. However, amongst the furore, Jurgen Klopp’s side have weathered the storm with a string of impressive performances.
Liverpool sit second in the Premier League on goal difference and top of Group D in the Champions League, with three wins under their belts. A win at Anfield would be enough to send them through with two games remaining.
Meanwhile, Atalanta come into this looking far from the explosive, high-scoring outfit that we’ve come to expect. Their 5-0 drubbing at the hands of Liverpool three weeks ago has been followed up with two draws, the most recent of which was a stalemate against newly promoted Spezia.
In the reverse fixture, it was the pairing of Joe Gomez and Rhys Williams that managed to shut out a usually potent Atalanta attack. A handful of crucial saves from Alisson denied the likes of Duvan Zapata but the Italian side failed to lay a glove on the rampant visiting Reds.
Fabinho and Joel Matip are likely to start in the centre of the Liverpool defence, as they did against Leicester on Sunday, and they’re certainly the most solid alternative to the injured Gomez and Van Dijk.
Mo Salah is expected to be available and Diogo Jota will be hungry for more having scored a hat-trick against Gian Piero Gasparini’s side last time out.
Atalanta will look to exact revenge and could really do with a result here, but the 3/1 for Liverpool to win to nil at home stands out.
Liverpool vs Atalanta Odds
Having blown Atalanta away earlier this month, Liverpool are priced as clear favourites here. While their threat has been somewhat blunted of late, Atalanta are undoubtedly capable of causing Liverpool problems and are likely to come at this game with more freedom.
