On Thursday, March 17, in Leverkusen, Bayer will host Atalanta in their arena.

Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Bayer vs Atalanta


In the Bundesliga, over the last 9 rounds, "pharmacists" have suffered only two defeats, including an unexpected fiasco from Cologne (0-1) in their arena in the last round. In the standings they are in 3rd place, one point ahead of three teams at once (Freiburg, Hoffenheim and RB Leipzig). Moussa Diaby (8 goals and one assist in the last eight matches) and Patrick Schick (20 goals in 20 rounds of the German championship) stand out from the squad. By the way, the Czech is not an assistant to the team now, as he injured his calf muscle in the game against Mainz 4 weeks ago.

In the 1/8 finals of the Europa League, Bayer got from first place in Group G, having won 4 wins in six matches.


In Serie A, things are not going well for Atalanta. Over the last 11 rounds, she won only two victories, and lost twice more to Roma, allowing her to bypass herself in the standings. So far, Gasperini's team occupies the 6th line, but they cannot feel calm there either, because Lazio and Fiorentina are “breathing in the back”, lagging behind by only 2 points.

The “goddess” began the European Cup season with the Champions League, where they took 3rd place in Group F. In 6 matches, she scored 12 goals, but at the same time she conceded 13. In the 1/16 finals of the Europa League, the Gasperini team confidently dealt with Olympiacos: 2-1 and 3-0 (Jimsiti and Malinovsky scored a double).

Game Totals Prediction

In Bergamo, Atalanta won a strong-willed and well-deserved victory with a score of 3-2. The heroes of the meeting were Muriel (2 goals + 1 assist) and Malinovsky (two assists and one goal).

An equally interesting and spectacular game is expected in Leverkusen, because Bayer is very strong in their arena and constantly scores, while Atalanta is famous for its high performance in all tournaments, although recently it has “lost its ground” a little. Here you can safely take “both teams to score” for 1.52, the “Total Over (3.0)” option also looks good for 1.93. If we talk about the chances of winning, it seems to us that they are equal, which means that Atalanta with a Handicap (+1.0) for 1.35 will be an absolutely safe bet, given, in addition, a stronger selection of players from the Italian team and the Pharmacists' lack of their top scorer.
