UCL: What You Can Expect From Atalanta Against Manchester United

Manchester United welcomes Atalanta at Old Trafford tonight on the back of a home defeat in the EPL against Leicester City.

Here's what can you expect from Gasperini's side on Wednesday night.

Atalanta is a free-flowing, aggressive side who press hard, attack very fast and break defensive lines down. It's entertaining and when it comes off, it is very difficult to stop by most opposition teams.

The team usually scores a lot of goals and has been Serie A's top goalscorers for three consecutive years.

Manager Gasperini sets his team up in a 3-4-3 formation with two attacking wing-backs who provide width, two split strikers who lead the press, and help in build-up play. It is very difficult to predict where the goals can come from.

Just as they operate a fluid attacking system, Atalanta operates a fluid zonal-marking plan as well.

Manchester City found a 5-1 victory the previous year because they survive the press and then break through it.
