UCL: Atalanta BC vs. Manchester United  Prediction

Manchester United will be aiming to make it three straight victories in the Champions League when they head to the Gewiss Stadium on Tuesday evening to take on Italian outfit Atalanta BC.

The Red Devils are currently top of Group F, collecting six points from their first three matches, while Atalanta are third in the section, just two points behind their opponents in Bergamo.

Atalanta will again be without the services of Berat Djimsiti, Robin Gosens, Rafael Toloi, Matteo Pessina and Hans Hateboer for Tuesday night’s European contest.

Jose Palomino is also a doubt due to a thigh problem, so Matteo Lovato could again start in a back three, while midfielder Marten de Roon may be pressed into action in a defensive area.

A 3-4-3 formation should see Duvan Zapata operate at the tip of the attack, with Pasalic and Josip Ilicic operating in the deeper areas, although Luis Muriel and Ruslan Malinovskyi are also pushing for starts.

Man United, meanwhile, could have a fully-fit squad for this match, and Paul Pogba is also available for selection, as his suspension only relates to domestic fixtures.

There is every chance that Solskjaer will stick with the same 3-5-2 formation that proved successful at Spurs, but it does seem likely that there will be at least one change ahead of the Manchester derby, with Cavani potentially being protected ahead of starting on Saturday.

Rashford came off the bench to score against Spurs and could join Ronaldo in attack, while Pogba and Nemanja Matic are options in the middle of the park.

The importance of this match means that Solskjaer cannot take any real chances, though, and the XI is expected to be either unchanged or very similar to the one that featured at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
