Manchester United will be desperate for victory when they welcome Atalanta to Old Trafford for Wednesday’s Champions League clash.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under pressure after overseeing four defeats in the last seven fixtures, as well as seven in 12 Champions League matches.

However, Man Utd are 3/4 (1.75) favourites with bet365 to secure a much-needed morale boost by coming out on top against the current Group F leaders.
Atalanta have earned four points from their first two group games against Villarreal and Young Boys and are available at 10/3 (4.33) to make it seven with a victory here.

None of the hosts’ last 16 matches in this competition have resulted in draws, but you can get odds of 3/1 (4.0) on them playing out a stalemate in this one.
Manchester United vs Atalanta first goalscorer
Cristiano Ronaldo is the 13/5 (3.60) favourite to open the scoring after hitting the net in both group games so far, while Marcus Rashford can be backed at 6/1 (7.0) following his comeback goal against Leicester at the weekend.
Duvan Zapata is priced at 5/1 (6.00) to score for a third game in succession by breaking the deadlock here, with Luis Muriel on offer at 11/2 (6.50) after hitting the net in two of his last four Champions League appearances.
Manchester United vs Atalanta preview
Having kept just one clean sheet in 11 fixtures this season and shipped four goals against Leicester at the weekend, the Red Devils will be bracing themselves for an important game against a forward-thinking opponent.
Indeed, Gian Piero Gasperini’s team have failed to score just once this season and have hit the net in each of the last eight away games in the Champions League – scoring 18 times on that run.
Nevertheless, the Italians have also kept just three clean sheets in 10 games this season, so seem unlikely to hold out at a ground where the home team have scored 12 times in the last four Champions League fixtures.
Manchester United vs Atalanta tips & predictions
All in all, odds of 6/5 (2.20) seem generous on United seeing over 3.5 goals for their fourth home game in five in this competition, as well as Atalanta’s fourth match in five.
