Betting Tip: Both Teams to Score and Over 2.5 Goals
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer always seems to come under fire after a worrying few results and it’s the case again after a deserved 4-2 defeat to Leicester on Saturday. It was a terrible second half display in particular and their schedule doesn’t get any easier in the next few weeks on the back of just 1 win in their last 5 and that was an undeserved one over Villareal on matchday 2.
It’s just a single clean sheet for United this season which is simply not good enough, so Atalanta who are often free scoring should get on the scoresheet. Having said that, Atalanta have kept just two clean sheets themselves and attack is firmly their best way to go especially having looked at the standard of defending and lack of a strong holding midfielder should have the boys from Bergamo in confident mood.
Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals is a 3/4 shot and I think that’s fair enough. There’s attacking individual quality on both sides. I wouldn’t be touching the odds-on about the hosts to win but they can play their part in a fun encounter at Old Trafford.
