Atalanta BC will be traveling to Germany this week, to take on hosts Leipzig in the first leg of the quarterfinals of the Europa League 2021-22 season.
Leipzig finished third in Group A during the group stages of the UEFA Champions League and was drawn to play against Real Sociedad in the knock-out round play-offs. After drawing the first leg 2-2, Leipzig beat Sociedad in its own backyard in the second leg and advanced into the round of 16 with an aggregate of 5-3, where it was scheduled to face Spartak Moscow.
But after FIFA banned the Russian teams due to its invasion of Ukraine, Leipzig received a walkover and was directly promoted into the quarterfinals. The club is in good form of late, not losing in its last 9 matches across competitions. Leipzig is currently sitting in the 4th spot in the Bundesliga, three points ahead of 5th placed Freiburg. With just a few more games to go, it will be playing hard to secure a Champions League spot for the next season too.
Atalanta BC was drawn in Group F for this season of the Champions League, along with heavyweights like Manchester United and Villarreal. Finishing 3rd, it faced Olympiacos in the playoffs and won both the legs with an aggregate of 5-1. In the round of 16, it faced another German club, Leverkusen. Just like the play-offs, Atalanta won both the legs in the round of 16 too, knocking out its rivals with an aggregate of 4-2.
Talking about its form in the domestic league, Atalanta has squandered away some of its early lead and is currently in 6th place in Serie A, 8 points away from securing a Champions League berth. In its recent game before the international break, Atlanta beat Bologna in an away fixture and will be feeling pretty confident traveling to Germany. However, most football betting sites are giving pretty long odds for an away win.
Match prediction and football betting tips for RB Leipzig vs Atalanta BC Europa League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Red Bull Arena Leipzig, Germany, on 7th April 2022.
Since it is the first time that both the clubs are facing each other, this is a difficult game to call. Both the clubs have never won a major European trophy and will be vying hard to secure a place in the semis, where they will either face Braga or Rangers.
Atalanta is likely to miss out on Duvan Zapata as well as captain Rafael Toloi due to injuries, while the hosts have a long list of injuries, including Felix Passlack, Mateu Morey, Thomas Meunier, Youssoufa Moukoko, and Nico Schulz.
We predict a high-scoring game where the hosts are likely to enjoy an advantage.
Bet on RB Leipzig to win.
Both the teams have scored at least once in each of their European games this season, Leipzig with an average of 2.5, and Atalanta with an average of 2.1. Moreover, the last time Leipzig failed to score in any game this season was back in December in the Bundesliga. With two teams that are prolific at scoring goals going up against each other, the odds available on both of them getting on the board in this match seem to be quite fair.
