These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Both Teams to Score

Last week’s quarter final first leg skirmish between RB Leipzig and Atalanta in Germany was a keenly contested affair that eventually ended in stalemate with both teams finding the net in a 1-1 draw. Both Domenico Tedesco and Gian Piero Gasperini’s teams are laced with reliable goal-getters, with Die Roten Bullen notching in 16 of their last 17 and La Dea registering in 80% of their last ten fixtures. Expect both teams to get in on the act again on Thursday.

Over 2.5 Goals

Just two goals were scored in last week’s first leg in Leipzig, though the modest final scoreline belied what was actually a frenetic chance-filled evening in Germany. The teams mustered 34 shots between them at the Red Bull Arena and we’re backing RB Leipzig and Atalanta to be just as creative in Thursday’s return fixture. Over 2.5 goals has landed in six of RB Leipzig’s last seven away assignments and we’re tipping that pattern to continue here.

Christopher Nkunku to Score Anytime

A Christopher Nkunku goal usually comes with the match ticket these days and the newly-capped French international bagged his 28th strike of the campaign against Hoffenheim on Sunday. The 24-year-old has netted eight times in just nine continental appearances for Leipzig this term and the lethal finisher is a prime candidate in the anytime scorer stakes again this week.

Atalanta vs RB Leipzig Match Preview and Team News


Remo Freuler and Berat Djimsiti are both out injured for Atalanta with muscle and shoulder injuries respectively. La Dea slipped to a surprise 2-1 loss at Sassuolo on Sunday, though their players might have had one eye on Thursday’s second leg against RB Leipzig. Atalanta have never won a European trophy before.

RB Leipzig

Amadou Haidara is listed as RB Leipzig’s only injury concern at present. The midfielder is laid low with a knee complaint and isn’t expected to return until May. With eight wins and four draws in their last 12 fixtures, the Roten Bullen are in superb form and they are considered one of the favourites to go all the way in the Europa League this season.
