Atalanta will be aiming to maintain their unbeaten record in the Europa League as they welcome Sporting CP to Gewiss Stadium on Thursday. The Italians have been the team to beat in Group D and should have too much for Sporting, who have been a bit erratic in the competition.

It has been a solid Europa League campaign so far for Atalanta, who are yet to taste defeat after four matches. They picked up a 1-0 victory over Sturm Graz last time out to make it three wins and a draw, and need just a point on Thursday to be confirmed as Group D winners.

While things have been good in Europe, Atalanta have looked a bit erratic everywhere else. They have picked up just two wins from their last six matches across all competitions and were beaten 2-1 at home by Napoli in a Serie A fixture last weekend.

Despite that defeat to Napoli, Atalanta have been generally solid at Gewiss Stadium this season. Gian Piero Gasperini’s men have picked up five wins from their last eight home matches across all competitions.

Sporting CP are closely behind Atalanta in Group D and look well on course to join the Italians in the knockout stage. Ruben Amorim’s men have a comfortable three point cushion in second place having suffered just one defeat in four matches so far.

The Portuguese giants picked up a 2-1 victory over Rakow Czestochowa in their previous Europa League fixture. They raced to a two-goal lead through Pote before the Polish side pulled one back midway through the second half.

Sporting CP head into Thursday’s clash in good form having claimed seven wins in their last nine matches across all competitions, including an 8-0 victory over Duminense last weekend. They are also unbeaten in seven of their last eight away matches but were beaten 2-1 by Benfica in their previous fixture on the road.
