Atalanta is hosting Young Boys at Gewiss Stadium in round 2 of Group F of the UEFA Champions League. Atalanta has been in solid form lately, and they are now undefeated in their last 4 games. Young Boys hasn’t lost any of their last 10 games, and they are now on a 6-game winning streak.
Atalanta is now in 7th place in Serie A standings, and they have scored only 8 goals so far which is very uncharacteristic for this team. In their last game against Inter on the road, Atalanta was solid with 51% of ball possession, they have had 5 shots on goal, 11 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 79% of the correct passes. Atalanta was losing in the 5th minute, but they were leading at halftime. Inter has tied the score in the second half, and they even missed a penalty kick. Atalanta has also had a canceled goal at the end of the game, and the final score of this match was 2-2. In the Champions League, Atalanta was playing against Villarreal in round 1, and that game has also ended in a 2-2 draw. Freuler and Gosens have each scored 1 goal for Atalanta so far this season. I know Atalanta’s offense is not clicking just yet, but they are still a great team, and they can be very dangerous.
Young Boys is having a fantastic time at the moment, and they are now at the top of this group after they beat Manchester United in round 1. Young Boys has had 54% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 8 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and a solid 86% of the correct passes. After Young Boys conceded a goal in the 13th minute, they have tied the score in the second half, and in the last minute of the game, Young Boys has scored another goal. Young Boys has won this game 2-1. As far as the Swiss Super League goes, Young Boys is in 2nd place with 14 points, but they are on a roll, and they could take over the top soon. A piece of bad news for Young Boys is they have conceded at least 1 goal in their last 4 games, but they have also been outstanding in the attacking end. Siebatcheu and Moumi are the goalscorers for Young Boys so far in the Champions League. This is a great team, and as we could have seen, they are persistent and dangerous, and they have a good shot at advancing past the group stage.
These two teams have never played against each other in the past, but I think this will be a great game. Young Boys is scoring a ton, but they have also been conceding a lot, and so was Atalanta. I’m taking goals in this one.
