Win probabilities

Atalanta odds: 21/20 (2.05) – 48.8%

Draw odds: 5/2 (3.5) – 28.6%

Sporting CP odds: 9/4 (3.25) – 30.8%

Atalanta are sitting three points clear of Sporting ahead of their second meeting in Group D, and another victory for the Serie A giants would secure top spot for them ahead of the Primeira Liga side.

No side has beaten Atalanta in the Europa League so far, putting them alongside Marseille and Bayer Leverkusen as the only unbeaten teams left in the competition – even the likes of Roma and Liverpool have suffered defeats.

Sporting are also still feeling the heat of the defeat to rivals Benfica, as a 2-1 victory for the latter pushed them into first place and Sporting back into second. They have also drawn one game after a 1-1 clash with Rakow Czestochowa in the last Europa League game.

Atalanta vs Sporting CP Lineups, Team News, and Match Preview

Atalanta

A home loss to Napoli could bring a few changes to Atalanta's team, as a few key players missed out and no doubt come back into the starting lineup here, such as Gianluca Scamacca.

Probable lineup: Carnesecchi (GK), Scalvini, Djimsiti, Kolasinac, Zappacosta, Ederson, Pasalic, Bakker, Koopmeiners, Muriel, Scamacca.

Sporting CP 

Viktor Gyokeres will likely lead the line for Sporting once more, as he searches for his 13th goal in his 15th outing – two of those goals have been in Europe. A Taca de Portugal fixture with Dumiense also allowed for a few key players to have a rest last weekend.

Probable lineup: Adan (GK), Inacio, Coates, Diomande, Reis, Morita, Hjulmand, Esgaio, Edwards, Goncalves, Gyokeres.

Starting lineups are usually released 60 minutes before kick-off.

Player to Watch: Viktor Gyokeres

Although we predict a win for Atalanta, we cannot talk about form without speaking about Gyokeres. The Swede has been on fire since moving from Coventry City to Portugal, scoring seven goals and registering four assists in 10 Liga Portugal matches – this accounts for almost half of Sporting's league goals.

Gyokeres has also managed to bag himself two goals in three Europa League games, which includes one goal in the last meeting with Atalanta from the penalty spot.
