Atalanta vs Villareal – UEFA Champions League Betting Tips

Free-scoring Atalanta welcomes Villareal in a crucial Champions League match which would decide which team joins Manchester United to qualify for the UCL knockout stages. 

Also, this match has another twist: If Young Boys win Manchester United, they stand a chance to qualify for the Europa League knock stages. In contrast, a loser in this match (especially if Atalanta) will kiss their European ambition goodbye this season.

Below, we will provide tips for this match and their team news.  

Atalanta Form and Team News

Atalanta has been in good form, judging from their recent matches. They have won 4 of their last 5 games in all competitions and drawing only 1. One of those wins is an impressive win against Napoli in Serie A. 

In the UCL, they have played 5 matches, drawn 2, won 1, and lost 2. During the run of these matches, they have scored 10 goals but still conceded 10 goals.

For the team news, Atalanta has two players out for this match: Gosens Robin and Lovato Matteo.  

Villareal Form and Team News

Villareal hasn’t been in top form, judging by the recent games in all competitions. They have lost 3 of their last 5 games, won just 1, and drew 1. 

They have won 2 games, lost 2 games, and drew 1 in their last 5 games in the Champions League. They currently sit at the second position in Group F at 7 points, 1 more point above Atalanta at third place.

Our Tipsters Angle

Atalanta looks like the better team on paper if recent performances are considered. Their UCL and domestic league form look frightening compared to Villareal, who seem to have little confidence and battle with form. 

The last time the two teams met in the UCL this season, it ended in a 2-2 draw, which Atalanta saved at the 83rd minute even though the first scored in the first half. Below, we provide our tips based on the most possible outcomes of this match. 

Tip 1: Atalanta to Win

Even though Atalanta is sitting in the third position, they look stronger on paper to win this match. Drawing here wouldn’t do them any good, and they might lose out from Europa League qualifiers entirely if Young Boys wins Manchester United. 

They have won 4 of their last 5 matches in all competitions, and we think this would be another win in the books for them. 

Real Madrid to win Inter Milan is available at the Casumo sportsbook, and it is placed at 2.12 odds.  

Tip 2: Over 2.5 Goals

Atalanta is a free-scoring team, and Villareal is also an attacking team, and just like their first leg this season, this match is expected to have more than 3 goals in it.  

Their first leg game finished 2-2, and 4 out of 5 Atalanta’s last recent matches has had over 2.5 goals in it. Casumo Sportsbook has an Over 2.5 goals market, and it has an odd of 1.55.


This match is crucial for both teams, and we expect it to have many goals. Over their last five games, Villareal has been having unconvincing results, while Atalanta looks in form going into this match. 

We think Atalanta will win this match, and if the game is to be a draw, there should be lots of goals scored due to how porous the backline of both teams have been.
