Atlanta vs PSG kicks-off the quarterfinals stage of the 2020 Champions League on Wednesday 12 August and these two attacking teams will, hopefully, treat us to a goal-fest. After Atlanta’s 8-4 aggregate win over Valencia in the last-16, the Italian looks sure to try and capitilise on their attacking talents once more and PSG forwards should relish the space that creates.
The goals markets are the obvious place to play and big prices for over 4.5 and 5.5 goals were tempting. But PSG have also been strong defensively in the Champions League so far and the best bet is for PSG to score more than 1.5 goals at around 4/6 (1.66).
Atalanta started poorly in the Champions League, losing their first three matches. But they rallied strongly with a draw against Manchester City and wins over Zagreb and Atalanta. They also finished strongly in Serie A to finish third. They could easily give PSG plenty to think about but finding the balance between attack and defence against such a strong opponent could be tough.
One problem for PSG is that they’ve not played competitively since March. They were in brilliant form then, beating Lyon 5-1 in the Coupe De France before beating Borussia Dortmund 2-0 to overturn a 2-1 first-leg defeat.
But PSG have played four friendlies in the last few weeks, dismissing Le Havre (9-0) and Celtic (4-0) before settling for 1-0 wins against St Etienne and Sochaux. Those results suggest that the PSG defence is in excellent shape coming into this quarterfinal and Atlanta surely won’t find the PSG rearguard as easy to breach as Valencia’s.
But those eight goals against the Spanish side does suggest that Atalanta will be pushing players forward and PSG are expected to exploit the gaps to grab at least two away goals, regardless of what the final score is on the night.
