Real Madrid will be seriously under-strengthed for their visit to Atalanta with the likes of Benzema, Ramos, Hazard, Marcelo, Carvajal, Valverde, Rodrygo and Militao all set to miss out.
No surprise then to see Atalanta installed as 13/10 favourites for a first leg victory. The Italians were a mixed bag in the group stages including a 5-0 defeat to Liverpool, followed by a 2-0 win at Anfield. Their other two home matches were draw with Ajax and Midtjylland so it’s difficult to put all your trust in them at that short price.
One thing we should confident of is goals. Over 2.5 is larger than expected at a backable 4/6. An early goal paid off in Rome on Tuesday and it could be profitable again at 5/6 for a strikebefore the 26th minute.
Man City put their 18-match winning run on the line in Budapest against Borussia Monchengladbach who go in to the game eighth in the German Bundesliga and with only one win in five matches in all competitions.
City have been confirmed as being the current best team in Europe on the Euro Club Index and are 2/7 to win in Hungary. They shouldn’t have too much difficulty landing those odds but value is hard to find in this match with Over 2.5 Goals priced at just 1/2.
