Our Atalanta vs Liverpool prediction suggests for the fourth meeting running, the home team will not win. The Reds can perhaps take some encouragement from a 5-0 Champions League win away to Atalanta in 2020, a margin of victory that would see them complete a stunning comeback were it to be repeated this week.

Atalanta Preview: Defenders missing for hosts

This game may come too soon for injured duo Giorgio Scalvini and Sead Kolasinac but otherwise Atalanta should be at full strength.

Predicted Lineup: Musso (GK), De Roon, Hien, Djimsiti, Zappacosta, Ederson, Pasalic, Ruggeri, Koopmeiners, Lookman, Scamacca

Player to watch – Gianluca Scamacca

Gianluca Scamacca endured a very difficult time in the Premier League with West Ham but he delivered on Merseyside last week and in some style with a brace taking him to five goals in the competition this season.

Scamacca happy again back home

Scamacca has scored seven in his last seven in all competitions. He averages a goal every 113 minutes across Serie A and the Europa League this term. That’s compared to a strike every 310 minutes in the 2022/23 Premier League.
