Young Boys v Atalanta: Hosts should score but class will tell

Gian Piero Gasperini.
Atalanta are looking for their second win over Young Boys.

Dan Fitch has his money on an Atalanta win, but thinks that Young Boys will continue their home scoring streak.

"Young Boys have scored in both of their Champions League home games and that could be key to finding some value in the visitors."

Group F remains wide open

Young Boys and Atalanta are currently outside the qualification spots in Group F, but both have a chance of making the last-16.

Since beating Manchester United in their opening game, Young Boys have lost all three matches in the group. They're also out of form domestically, with their 1-1 draw with Grasshoppers at the weekend meaning that they have only won one of their last four games in the Swiss Super League (D2 L1).

With three points, there remains a mathematical chance for Young Boys to catch up with the top two in the group, Manchester United and Villarreal, who both have seven points. Atalanta are third with five points (W1 D2 L1).

The Italians really should be in a superior position. They let a two goal lead slip when they lost 3-2 at Old Trafford and were twice ahead when they drew 2-2 with Manchester United at home. At the weekend Atalanta won 5-2 at home against Spezia, which means that they are unbeaten in six (W4 D2).

Back hosts to score in another defeat

Atalanta are the 1.824/5 favourites, with Young Boys at 4.3100/30 and the draw at 4.47/2.

The Serie A club have only won one of their group games and that was in the reverse fixture, which they edged 1-0. Their odds perhaps seem a little slim then, even if Young Boys are in poor form.

Young Boys have scored in both of their Champions League home games and that could be key to finding some value in the visitors. An Atalanta win and both teams to score is 3.39/4.
