Today's Top Tips for RB Leipzig vs Atalanta
RB Leipzig take on Atalanta in the first leg of the Europa League quarter-finals. Both teams have been on a decent run of form coming into this game. RB Leipzig, though, come on the back of an impressive win over Dortmund while Atalanta suffered a defeat against Napoli during the weekend.
RB Leipzig have struggled for results at home with a win over Cologne the only big success for the team in the last two months. Atalanta were able to pick up away victories over Olympiacos and Bayer Leverkusen to give them a great deal of confidence coming into this fixture. Duvan Zapata will be further close to 100% fitness in this match. This will give Atalanta sufficient firepower to at least grab a draw from this first leg.
Under 2.5 Goals
There have been under 2.5 goals in four out of the last six matches at the Red Bull Arena. Even though this game features two teams who do not shy away from going on the offensive, there is a lot of potential for both teams to be cautious and not throw away the tie in the first leg. Both teams might end up cancelling each other.
