Odds: 1.76
Stake: 1

Match date: 24/02/2021

Atalanta will host Real Madrid at the Gewiss Stadium for the first leg match of the Last 16.I will start my preview with the team news. Atalanta only have one missing player as Hans Hateboer is out injured. And of course, Papu Gomez left the club in January following the row with coach Gasperini. Real coach Zidane will be without number of important players, including Karim Benzema, Sergio Ramos, Marcelo and Eden Hazard.

However, Real are the most successful club in the history of the Champions League. They are not dominant as usual, not even in domestic La Liga. Nevertheless, they secured the top 2 finish in the group that also contained Shakhtar Donetsk, Borussia M'gladbach and Inter Milan. Real are always favorites. As I expect goals, Real have scored two goals on five of their last six matches in the Champions League.

Atalanta already made some good results this season. For example, they beat Liverpool at Anfield. Somebody may minimaze the success as teams like Brighton or Everton also won at Anfield, but in 2020 it was an extraordinary success. The home form is excellent, as Atalanta have lost just one of their last 11 home games. In terms of goals, they have scored at least 3 goals in 9 of these 11 games.

Gasperini and Zidane are known as attacking-minded coaches. I can't imagine to play "catenaccio", so I expect at least three goals.
