Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Midtjylland and Atalanta take on each other in a highly-anticipated Champions League clash at MCH Arena. The Danish outfit did well to crush Slavia Prague in the playoffs, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Atalanta. Midtjylland are a real force to be reckoned with at home, and even though MCH Arena will be empty this time out, we predict that the hosts are going to find the net.
The Orobici, on the other hand, have been producing some extraordinary displays in the Serie A this term. Atalanta look sharp in front of goal, and given their attacking potential, both teams to score betting option should be considered. The like of Caldara and Gollini remain in the recovery room for the visitors, while Carnesecchi (coronavirus) is rated doubtful. The two teams meet for the first time ever in European competitions.
