Everton vs Atalanta – Europa League: In another match of this Europa League’s group stage 5th round…
The local team Everton, managed by the interim manager David Unsworth, will face Atalanta, managed by Gian Piero Gasperini, in Liverpool, England, at the Goodison Park Stadium,
on a match between the last and first place of this group E, who are separated by 7 points going into this match.
On their previous encounter, the Italian side has defeated the English 3-0, on their own stadium, in the 1st round.
The visiting side comes into this match in the lead of this group E, having a remarkable campaign on this European adventure, on their return to European competitions, already practically having ensured their continuation in this competition.
All that’s left to know is if they will be able to hold on to their lead of the group, that would allow them to, in theory, avoid the strongest opponents in the round of 16.
The team is the best attack and best defence of this group, getting 2 wins and 2 draws in 4 rounds.
As for the English, they are already out of the European competitions on this dreadful season, only getting 1 out of 12 possible points and having the worst defence of this group E,
with 10 goals conceded in only 4 matches, and not even being able to score, on average, 1 goal per match.
This way, the team from Liverpool is only playing for pride.
Everton vs Atalanta – Betting Tip and Prediction:
On a match where the hosts won’t be too motivated, maybe not motivated at all, and where the Italians, despite everything, are travelling to a tough ground, such as Goodison Park,
I believe on a more tactical match, not exactly well played, and without many goals (I’d say two, at most).
