Betting tips: Sporting x Atalanta

Check out our predictions of the day for Sporting vs. Atalanta

Prediction 1: Sporting x Atalanta / Over 2.5 goals

These two sides have free goal-scoring attackers. We believe they will both be showing their offensive prowess in the first leg of this round, and we are backing over 2.5 goals as our first bet.

Prediction 2: Sporting x Atalanta / Full time draw

On their last visit, the Italian team emerged victorious over the hosts. Despite their current lacklustre performance in their last two matches, Rúben Amorim and his team should still anticipate Atalanta to pose a threat. This opening leg of the Europa League Round of 16 matches between these two can end in a draw.

Prediction 3: Sporting x Atalanta / Viktor Gyokeres to score anytime

With four goals in his last four appearances across all competitions, Viktor Gyokeres has been absolutely sensational since joining Sporting CP. He scored the last time against Stum Graz, and we believe he will be hitting the net again this time around.
