(ANSA) – ROME, MARCH 09 – The only Italian survivor in the Europa League, Atalanta has excellent chances of reaching the quarter-finals. So think the Snai analysts, who see the favorite Goddess in the double clash with Bayer Leverkusen, whose first act is staged tomorrow night at the Gewiss Stadium. The passage of the Nerazzurri is given at 1.72, Bayer is at 2.00. A rather small difference, however, also because the team coached by Gerry Seoane is conducting a very positive season, gratified for now by the third place in the Bundesliga behind the two great Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund. Just last Saturday, away, the Rossoneri forced Bayern to a draw (1-1).
As for the prediction on tomorrow night’s match, Atalanta ahead at 1.95, with the draw at 3.55 and the German ‘2’ at 3.60. Among the probable strikers Muriel stands out at 2.75, followed by Pasalic (3.00) and Malinovskiy (3.25). In Bayer Schick is almost certainly absent (who in the league is averaging one goal per game), watch out for the Iranian Azmoun, new signing (ex Zenit), given at 3.25. The excellent European references built in recent years make Atalanta one of the candidates to conquer the Europa League. The Snai scoreboard sees her in fourth place, at 8.50, at the foot of a podium made up of Barcelona (3.50), Leipzig (5.00) and Seville (6.00). (HANDLE).
