Reason for Atalanta vs Valencia UEFA Champions League Picks

Atalanta -133

Atalanta's victory over Rome on Saturday prepares them for a return to the Champions League next season. However, their first campaign in this competition continues during the week, as they welcome Valencia on Wednesday.

The Italian team has clearly progressed as the best Series A team this quarter. They have already found the network 63 times this season, suggesting that they can punish a distorted team from Valencia. However, Dea still plays their home games in this competition in San Siro, which caused problems in the last round.

Atalanta encountered problems throughout the group stage when trying to manage the quality level. We hope that they fight from behind against a team from Valencia that has scored in five of their six games of the group stage, including each of their three away games.

Atalanta's last seven games have seen the BTTS land six times. We see them continue this race against Valencia, but the consecutive defeats of the visitors are a problem.

Team news: Rafael Toloi is again available for Atalanta after missing his last suspension group game.

Atalanta has a clean state of health before Wednesday's meeting with the Spanish part of Valencia.
Ruslan Malinovskiy and Mario Pasalic may have to settle for bank places here.

Key Player: Josip Ilicic   has found the back of the net in seven of 11 matches since his last UCL appearance, netting Atalanta’s first goal in three of his last six.

Result at the 10 minute mark: Atalanta +650





Valencia +372

Valencia recorded a surprise 0-1 road victory over Ajax in their last match of the group stage. The Dutch team impressed the world with a deep CL semifinal race last season, and given their shape, they were expected to be eliminated easily.

Valencia made four visits to San Siro this century, avoiding defeat three of four times (D3, L1). Only in UCL, Valence deplores a rather mediocre record in Italy this century (W1, D2, L5), with the victory alone (as well as the five defeats) returning scores 1-0.

On the national scene, visitors took points from only two of the six La Liga matches as a loser on the road (W1, D1, L4). However, Valencia opened the scoring in its three games outside the group stage (W2, D1), its continental travel form inspires confidence.

Team news: Gabriel Paulista will miss the first leg due to a suspension after being sent off in Valencia's last group match.

Ezequiel Garay was kicked out of Valence's last European outing, but is now injured by the visiting team.
With Garay and Gabriel missing, Valence have no choice but to start with Eliaquim Mangala and Mouctar Diakhaby as central.

January's signing Alessandro Florenzi was suspended this weekend and the 2-2 draw with Atlético de Madrid was lost and is also lost here.

Key Player: Rodrigo Moreno has recorded Valencia’s first goal on five separate occasions this season, including twice in the UCL group stage.

Winning Margin: Valencia by 1 goal +450
