Atalanta will get the chance to finally beat Manchester United after they allowed the Red Devils to stage an unlikely comeback in the reverse of this fixture.
United would follow up that win with a 5-0 loss at home to Liverpool, but they have since beaten Tottenham 3-0 away.
They know Atalanta is a very tough club to play against and would want to guard against the complacency that made them go two goals behind at home.
Atalanta has remained unbeaten since the reverse of this fixture and they held Lazio to a 2-2 draw in their last competitive game.
This match offers them the chance to show they are one of Italy’s best clubs and it would be interesting to see how they respond.
The reverse of this fixture was the first time both clubs have met and Atalanta will not want to lose both legs to the Red Devils.
Cristiano Ronaldo spent three years on the books of Juventus in Turin and he would give his teammates some tips on how to beat La Dea.
