Wednesday night sees Manchester City travel to the city of Bergamo to face Atalanta on matchday four of the Champions League.

The hosts meanwhile can be backed at 5.50 with the draw priced at 4.50.

Atalanta vs Manchester City Team News

Atalanta striker Duvan Zapata has not featured since picking up an injury for Colombia during last month's international break.

The 28-year-old had scored in four consecutive games before picking up a muscle strain.

For City, Rodri looks like missing out, while Aymeric Laporte is a long-term absentee and Oleksandr Zinchenko is recovering from surgery. 

Atalanta vs Manchester City Preview

Two weeks ago in Manchester, Atalanta lived up to their billing as an exciting, attacking side by taking the lead at the Etihad only to end up losing heavily.

Gian Piero Gasperini's side are the top scorers in Serie A having netted 30 times in 11 games - 11 more goals than leaders and champions Juventus - and they will surely be able to contribute to a high scoring game on Wednesday night.

City meanwhile have an impressive scoring record in Europe, particularly at this stage of the Champions League, with Barcelona the last team to keep a group stage clean sheet against the Blues back in October 2016.

Goals look almost guaranteed in Bergamo and there should be plenty of interest in backing an open and exciting game.

Tips and predictions

Both teams to score and over 3.5 goals is priced at 1.88 and looks like a strong angle from which to approach this encounter.

In Serie A, Atalanta's games are averaging 4.36 goals and the crowd at the Gewiss Stadium should be in for another entertaining clash.
