It’s Champions League time! Tonight we are going to present to you the 2nd leg of Champions League 1/8 finals between the teams of Valencia and Atalanta. The venue is the home ground of Valencia – Estadio de Mestalla. The official start is at 20:00 GMT 0. Unfortunately, the game will be played with no spectators due to precautions against the spread of coronavirus.
Valencia needs 3 or more goals
Valencia was badly smashed in the 1st leg (4-1) and considering their unconvincing results in the last matches, we think that the team has no real chances for qualifying to the 1/4 finals of the tournament. Moreover, the team of Alberto Celades has serious problems in defence as the captain Garay is with a long-term injury, Mangala is also absent as well as Gabriel Paulista. That would ease the conceding of goals. Perhaps Valencia will score at least one goal.
Atalanta scores too much
We cannot discuss the recent form of Atalanta due to the break-in Seria A but considering their last match against Lecce (2-7), the team of Bergamo has been in good form. Moreover, all players are rested and ready to play 90 minutes until the historical qualifying to1/4 finals. There is no news for any absentees within the squad of Gasperini.
