Our football match prediction:
Everton will be aiming to make amends for back-to-back defeats to Olympique Lyon when they host Atalanta at their Goodison Park. The Toffees have already suffered elimination in the group stages of the Europa League and there is every chance coach David Unsworth will mix the squad in the penultimate group game. The Premier League side have nothing to play for in Thursday’s football match and we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on the rock-bottom team. The Orobici, on the other hand, sit in top position in Group E ahead of the trip to Liverpool and they would be happy with one point from Thursday’s clash. Josip Ilicic found the net in a 1-1 draw with Apollon, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay. Speaking of the home team, it has to be noted that midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin is sidelined through suspension.
