EUROPA: Europa League – group stage
Match start: 19:00 (GMT+2)
After two Champions League days of Tuesday and Wednesday had come the Tuesday of the Europa League. Now we present your attention the battle of Atalanta Italy and Everton England. Besides these mentioned teams the group E includes also Olympique Lyonnais France and Apollon Cyprus.
According to experts the initial favorites of this quartet are Everton and Olympique Lyonnais. It should be noted that the home arena of the club from Italy doesn’t fit the demands of UEFA. And that is why all home matches Atalanta will be played in Reggio nell'Emilia on Sassuolo’s Stadium-Città del Tricolore.
Atalanta Italy (the head coach Gian Piero Gasperini)
In three last matches the club from Italy has earned only three points. But this fact can be logically explained. The rivals of Atalanta in two starting rounds were Roma (0:1) and Napoli (1:3). It is obvious that to play against favorites is very hard.
But during the last home match against Sassuolo the team of Gian Piero Gasperini had won its first victory (2:1). And now Atalanta is getting ready to meet with the second by its status football club from Merseyside in better mood.
Everton England (the head coach Ronald Koeman)
Alas! Absolutely different mood has the team from England. The injuries of Ross Barkley, James McCarthy, Séamus Coleman and Yannick Bolasie were aggravated by the scandal with the participation of Wayne Rooney.
As a result, in the last national championship the team of Ronald Koeman had experienced humiliating home match defeat from the vice-champions of EPL Tottenham (0:3). So, even the most predictable bet ‘both teams to score” didn’t play here. And after such fiasco Everton is taking the 16th place and has only 1 point from relegation zone.
Now the team from Merseyside has to right itself in Italy for a total defeat in the match against Tottenham.
It is obvious that Everton is higher in class than Atalanta but in favor of Atalanta speaks the factor of home arena and the personality of one of the most experienced experts Gian Piero Gasperini. Here is the most actual the bet on Atalanta not to lose.
Atalanta – 2.40, draw – 3.30, Everton – 2.90
