Surprising third in Serie A last May, Atalanta made its big premiere in the Champions League. The apprenticeship is difficult for the Bergamo-based group which ranks last in Group C with 0 points on the clock. Papu Gomez’s partners lost to Dinamo Zagreb (4-0), Shakhtar Donetsk (1-2) and Manchester City last week (5-1). A qualification for the Europa League seems already compromised. On the other hand, the team is rather well represented on the national scene. 5th in Serie A, the men of Gian Piero Gasperini remain on a conceded backhand, at home, against a seductive team from Cagliari. This setback put an end to a good series of 8 games without losses in the league (5 wins and 3 draws).
Eliminated prematurely from the last editions of the Champions League, Manchester City has great ambitions this season. The Mancunian formation has also perfectly started its group stage and occupies the head of group C with 3 successes gleaned in as many meetings. The team went to Shakhtar (0-3) and home to Dinamo Zagreb (2-0) and Atalanta (5-1). In the league, the Citizens are currently 2nd in the Premier League but already concede 6 units behind 1st place. After being surprised at home by Wolverhampton (0-2), they won their last 3 games played at Crystal Palace (0-2), against Aston Villa (3-0) and against Southampton hard last weekend (2 -1).
