The match

Atalanta will qualify for the Champions League knockout stages with a home win over Villarreal. They go into this final Group F game in third place, a point behind their opponents. The worst case scenario is that the Italians lose this game and Young Boys win at Manchester United. That would see them finish bottom and their European campaign over for the season. That looks unlikely though as Atalanta come into this game in top form. They only have six points from five group games but have led in every fixture. The weekend saw them win at Napoli extending their unbeaten record to ten league and cup games. Home form in this group has seen them draw with Manchester United (group winners) and beat Young Boys. They are unbeaten in their last five home games with nine goals scored in their last two.

The reverse fixture between these two sides ended 2-2 in Spain. Both sides led in that match with Atalanta getting a late equalizer. Villarreal simply need to avoid defeat to qualify but are guaranteed at least a place in the Europa League, so they could end up defending the trophy they won last season. The Spanish side are struggling for form with only one win in their last five games. That was an 8-0 away win over Victoria FC in the Copa del Rey. Aside from that, they have recent losses to Manchester United, Barcelona and most recently, Seville. Away form in this group has seen them lose to Manchester United but win at Young Boys. The wins against Young Boys and Victoria FC are the only ones they have had in their last nine on the road. Back Atalanta to get a vital home win.

Key Statistics

  • Atalanta have four points from their two home group games.
  • Atalanta are unbeaten in their last ten games.
  • Villarreal are in poor form with one win in their last five.

The bet of our experts

Atalanta should be able to get the home win they need to qualify. They are in top form at present, while their opponents are struggling for wins. Home form is good for Atalanta and they look to be on their way to the knockout stages. Back Atalanta to win with a side bet on both teams to score.
