Bank On A Tight Europa League Clash Between Atalanta And Everton In Italy
Everton face a tough start to life back in the Europa League when they travel to Italy for Thursday night's Group E encounter with Atalanta and this could be a low scoring affair at what is effectively a neutral venue...
- English teams have won only 2 of their past 13 visits to Italy in European competitions
- Everton have won 1 of their 6 matches against Italian opposition - Drawn 2, Lost 3
|Thursday 14th September - 6.00pm||Odds||Won/Lost||Bet|
|Atalanta v Everton|
|Tips||Under 2.5 Goals Best Bet||@ 7 / 10|
Atalanta won't be playing at their Bergamo fortress in Europe this season as their stadium isn't up to the standards required so they will instead be playing their 'home' games at the Stadio Citta del Tricolore, some 210km away from their actually home!
Gian Piero Gasperini's side are back in the Europe for the first time in 26 years after they finished fourth in Serie A last season and they head into this opening Group E match as 13/10 favourites with Paddy Power.
However, they are tough to back with home advantage gone, while an Everton side that has won just four Premier League away games since the start of the last campaign also make little appeal at 21/10, with the draw available at 9/4.
A Tight Match
Instead, the focus of our best bets will be a lack of goals as Everton are suffering a crisis of confidence following a four-match winless run in all competitions and they have struggled to find a cutting edge.
Ronald Koeman's men have only managed two goals in their four Premier League matches and it is worth noting that seven of their eight matches in all competitions have gone under 2.5 goals, including all four of their Europa League qualifiers (against Ruzomberok and Hajduk Split respectively).
Under 2.5 goals is 7/10 (Bet Victor) for Thursday and that could be the way to go as Atalanta conceded a meagre 41 goals in Serie A last term - only Juventus, Roma and Napoli conceded less - while under 1.5 goals is priced 2/1 by PaddyPower.com.
With Lyon and Limassol also in a tight-looking Group E, neither team will want to give too much away in Italy this week.
