Atalanta vs Liverpool Betting Tips

Both Teams To Score & Over 2.5 Goals @ bet365 (1 point)

Atalanta’s 3-0 win over Liverpool in the first leg was a huge upset. Jurgen Klopp’s side were the favourites to go on and lift the trophy but they have a mountain to climb in Bergamo. 

Klopp will be tempted to rest players here with his team embroiled in a title race with Manchester City and Arsenal. However, Klopp’s teams aren’t known for going down without a fight so expect fireworks in this one. The first leg was one of the very rare occasions that Liverpool failed to score in a match. 

They are averaging 2.45 goals per game across all competitions this season and conceding 1.02. Therefore, our bet for this match is both teams to score and over 2.5 goals (bet365).

There is no urgency for Atalanta to attack but an onrushing Liverpool will leave spaces for them to exploit on the counter. Moreover, they have scored in 19 of their 20 home matches across all competitions this season with an average of 2.1 goals per game.
