Atalanta vs Shakhtar Donetsk

, KO: 17:55 Oct 1, 2019,
Shakhtar Donetsk

ATALANTA'S long-awaited Champions League debut could hardly have gone worse as they were hammered 4-0 away to Dinamo Zagreb after shipping three first-half goals.

The repair job begins in Bergamo on Tuesday night and they can take heart from Shakhtar's poor away record in the competition. The Ukrainians have lost eight of their last 11 on the road and also conceded at least two goals in eight of 11.

Shakhtar continue to be utterly dominant on the domestic front – they have a 100% record after nine games of the league campaign – but find the step up to elite European action a struggle.

The Ukrainian champions were well beaten in their Group C opener when they failed to trouble Man City in a 3-0 defeat and are sizeable outsiders for this trip to Italy at 29-10 with Marathonbet.

Atalanta have bounced back in impressive fashion from their opening Euro humbling – the 2-0 midweek victory at Roma was followed up with a 4-1 away rout of Sassuolo – and can get off the mark with a first win in the group at 21-20 with Unibet.

The home side's Colombian striker Duvan Zapata looks set for another prolific season after bagging 29 goals in 52 games for club and country last term.

That included a mid-season spell where he scored in 10 consecutive games – a staggering 17-goal haul – and is already off the mark with five in seven in the new campaign. Back Zapata to get on the scoresheet at 11-10 with Unibet.

Looking to supply the ammunition for Zapata and stifle the vistitors' supply line will be combative Dutch international midfielder Marten de Roon, who is racking up bookings at a frantic rate.

He has five yellows in seven appearances for Atalanta this season and can be backed to add another card to his collection.
