Manchester United welcome Atalanta for a clash in the Champions League at Old Trafford on Wednesday night. The Red Devils enter round 3 of the Champions League with 3 points in the bag, and they will be hoping to double that in the coming match.
Manchester United struggling for results
The Red Devils will enter the match hoping to hit back after some rather disappointing results in recent matches. Judging by their last 3 matches, we can expect a bit of everything from Manchester United at the moment. Against Villarreal, they came out on top in a 2-1 win, before drawing 1-1 against Everton. Most recently, they were left reeling in a 4-2 defeat win against Leicester.
They opened the season hopeful of medals but in their current form, Manchester United only deserve a mention when talking about the title.
Results on home turf have been modest for Manchester United lately, with 3 wins from their last 6 matches since August. However, their upcoming home match seems to present a nice opportunity for a win.
Atalanta continue to collect points
Atalanta look to build on their current momentum with another positive result. Not many people predicted Atalanta for medals, but if they keep producing results, they might spring a surprise on the league.
A string of good performances on the road has seen Atalanta claim 3 wins from their last 5 matches since August. The Serie A side can fancy their chances of producing an upset for their English opponents on Wednesday night.
