Atalanta hosts Midtjylland in round 5 of the Champions League group stage. The match will be played on Tuesday, December 1st at Gewiss Stadium (Bergamo)
The team from Bergamo cannot boast of the stability of results in the current season. Despite this, reaching the Champions League playoffs looks like an achievable goal. In the local arena, Gasperini's men take place at the higher part of the standings. Atalanta retains good chances for the Champions League zone following the results of Serie A. The team's roster is regularly strengthening, and this summer was no exception. The club bought out Pasalic's contract and signed Miranchuk and Lammers on a permanent basis. Beyond that, it took Depaoli, Piccini, Romero, and Caldara on loan. The leaders of Atalanta (Gomez, Muriel, Gosens, and Toloi) are in great shape now.

The Champions League debutants show the game that fully corresponds to the status of the newcomers. The Danes did not score a single point and lost four times in a row. The match with Ajax was the most competitive for Brian Priske's men (a 1:2 defeat). Midtjylland has already lost its chances of continuing the European Cup campaign. The club will try to slam the door before leaving the Champions League. The Danish squad is 100% the weakest compared to any club in Group D. Midtjylland relies on young footballers, but there are plenty of players in their prime. Such interesting performers as Sviatchenko, Sisto, Evander, Dreyer, Mabil, and Onyeka are the leaders of the team.
Modern Atalanta has already gained enough European Cup experience to deal with such weak opponents. The club from Bergamo will be able to show its advantage in class and team organization. Gasperini's men should not just beat the Danes, but do it with a solid goal difference. Midtjylland will have several opportunities in counterattacks. In our opinion, the hosts will win with a difference of at least two goals.
Prediction for the match: Atalanta to win with -1.5 handicap
