Manchester United vs Atalanta Match Analysis and Prediction

Manchester United will be looking to bounce back to winning ways when they welcome Atalanta to Old Trafford on Wednesday night for Champions League matchday three with kickoff at 22:00.

Pressure is building on Ole Solskjaer as his side continues to display their tendency of being totally unpredictable from one match to the next. Manchester United opened the season strongly going unbeaten in the opening five matches recording four wins in the run. However, the Red Devils have been inconsistent in the recent weeks as they have only managed one point in their last league matches coming in the 1-1 draw against Everton, which was sandwiched between the 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa at Old Trafford and the dramatic 4-2 loss at Leicester City.

Therefore, Ole will be desperate for win going into the Wednesday’s match as he looks top perhaps regain some momentum to use in both competitions as the Devils have also not be so convincing in the Champions League, where they opened with a disappointing 2-1 defeat to group underdogs Young Boys before getting lucky in overturning another potential damaging score line against Villarreal.   

Manchester head into the match in poor form having just won two of their last six matches across all competitions and Ole will need a miracle to turn around their form as speculations about his future at club continues to heat-up.

Meanwhile Atalanta have made strong starts to both their domestic and continental campaigns having won four, drawn two and lost two of their opening eight matches in the Serie A to collect 14 points that have left them in the sixth spot in the league standings, while a record of one win and one draw in their opening two matches of the Champions League have left them at the top of Group F with four points.

Atalanta managed to bounce back from the 3-2 home defeat to Milan with an emphatic 4-1 victory against Empoli at away last weekend. Now they head into the match in a good form having just lost one of their last six matches across all competitions while picking up four wins and Gian Piero Gasperini will hope that his side can keep the momentum going when they take on a struggling Manchester United.
