Venue: Old Trafford, Manchester, England
Manchester United and Atalanta will face each other in the Champions League at Old Trafford, Manchester in the Round 3 match. Manchester United enter into this clash in poor shape, winning just one out of the last five matches in all competitions. In the last match, they under-performed and lost against Leicester City in the league by a 2-4 scoreline. The victory against Villarreal in the last Champions League match must be joyful for them and they will be hoping for a solid continuation in this match.
Atalanta are a very attacking team, having scored 90 goals in the league last season in the league but they are struggling this time out. They rarely fail to score but are defensively weak as well. They have been decent in Serie A this season, winning four, losing two, and drawing two from their last eight league matches. In the last Champions League match, they saw a 1-0 win against Young Boys.
Cristiano Ronaldo: Ronaldo is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays as a forward for the Premier League club Manchester United. He has been one of the most consistent players of all time around the world. His playmaking abilities along with a good eye for goals make him an asset to this team.
He is capable of playing on either wing as well as through the center of the pitch. He will be the top pick from either side. In his last two Champions League matches for United, he scored two goals.
Bruno Fernandes: The 27-year-old Portuguese midfielder is playing a very attacking brand of football. He has a total of four goals in eight league matches and will be confident to score in this match. In the last four matches across all competitions, he has assisted four times, one in each.
Duvan Zapata: The 30-year-old marksman comes into this game in fine form. He is a complete forward and is known for his pace, accuracy, and physicality. He is independent to drift wide, stay central, run in behind, or even drop in midfield which increases his chances to shoot the ball inside the net and also create space behind the defense for the wingers to run into. He has four goals to his name this season in the league along with two assists.
Manchester United: Raphael Varane, Amad Diallo, Anthony Martial.
Atalanta: Hans Hateboer, Matteo Pessina, Robin Gosens.
