Atalanta Bergamo vs Valencia Free Betting Tips
There is a debutant in the elite circle in the knockout phase this season. The Italian representative Atalanta Bergamo meets Valencia. In addition to the detailed game previews, we also have a compact overview of the Champions League round of 16 games.
Head coach Gian Piero Gasperini’s lombards qualified for the knockout phase behind Manchester City. Atalanta Bergamo is the first debut since Leicester City to reach the knockout phase straight away. The Spaniards last stood in the first round of the premier class in spring 2013, the group phase ended in first place ahead of Chelsea and Ajax Amsterdam.
Bookmakers expect a duel at eye level. In the “To Qualify Market” between Atalanta Bergamo and Valencia the Italians are seen as having a slight advantage. The move towards the quarter-finals should be made at home. Valencia has never won a Champions League knockout game abroad.
Atalanta Bergamo – Statistics & current form
Atalanta Bergamo made history right at the debut in the UEFA Champions League. First of all, the relationship between the Lombards and the most important club competition in the world didn’t seem to be the best. The Gasperini team lost the first three games and was already out with more than one leg.
The first point was won on matchday four, before the Gasperini team reached the knockout phase with two wins at the end of the group phase. For the first time in the current format of the Champions League history (since 2003/04), a team was able to fix their progress after three defeats at the start.
The trip on the international stage should by no means be ended against the bats from Valencia. Hope undoubtedly gives the strong Italians a strong record in front of their home crowd.
At home in the “Gewiss Stadium” the Lombards lost only two of the last 20 international games (11-7-2 record). The betting base odds comparison shows that between Atalanta Bergamo and Valencia odds up to a 1.85 are offered for the tip on the home side.
The Gasperini team should not lack confidence after the strong performances of the past few weeks. In the domestic championship, Bergamo collected ten out of twelve possible points in the most recent games. At the weekend, fourth place in the table was secured with a 2-1 home win against Roma.
With 63 goals scored, the Lombards have the best Serie A offensive, so goals are guaranteed with the Gasperini team. For over 2.5, odds of around 1.70 are currently being offered between Atalanta Bergamo and Valencia.
Probable lineups of Atalanta Bergamo:
↪ Gollini – Palomino, Djimsiti, Toloi – Gosens, de Roon, Freuler, Hateboer – Papu Gomez – Zapata, Ilicic

Valencia – Statistics & current form
In one of the most exciting groups, the bats from Valencia finally prevailed very thinly ahead of Chelsea (thanks to the direct comparison won) and Ajax Amsterdam (one point ahead).
With eleven points and just nine goals scored, head coach Albert Celades’ team was statistically the weakest group winner. For the first time since 2012/13, the Spaniards are back in the round of 16. The last time in the quarter-finals was in the 2006/07 season.
The last knockout games in the premier class were a few years ago. Valencia have no particularly good memories of their away games. None of the nine away games played so far have won Valencia. Four draws are matched by five defeats, and there was only one clean sheet against Leeds United in the 2000/01 season (0-0 draw).
Also in the national competitions, the defensive was not necessarily stable. After the end in the Copa del Rey against Granada, the Celades team in the games against Getafe (0: 3) and Atletico Madrid (2: 2) also had no success. In view of the latest performances, a successful tip for the guests would be surprising on Wednesday evening between Atalanta Bergamo and Valencia.
The situation is made more difficult by personnel problems. The bats have to do without goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen, Gabriel Paulista, Ezequiel Garay, Cristiano Piccini, Francis Coquelin and Manu Vallejo.
Striker Rodrigo (cousin of Bayern player Thiago) has a question mark due to a knee injury. In the last four CL games he has collected four scorer points (two goals, two assists), previously he had only collected three scorer points in 24 Champions League games.
Probable lineup of Valencia:
↪ Domenech – Gaya, Mangala, Diakhaby, Wass – Soler, Parejo, Kondogbia, Torres – Gomez, Guedes
Last games from Valencia:
⚽️ 02/14/2020 – Valencia vs. Atletico Madrid 2-2 (La Liga) (D)

⚽️ 04.02.2020 – Granada vs. Valencia 2-1 (Copa del Rey) (L)
⚽️ 02/01/2020 – Valencia vs. Celta Vigo 1-0 (La Liga) (W)
⚽️ 01/29/2020 – Leonesa vs. Valencia 0-0 (Copa del Rey) (D)

Atalanta Bergamo vs Valencia Free Betting Tips Provided by CoreBet Tipsters
The duel between these two teams promises relatively little “glamor and glamor”. While big names can be found in the other seven round of 16 games, this duel lags behind on paper a bit. From a sporting point of view, this need not be the case. The home side in particular has developed into an absolute top team in recent years.
In this respect, it is not surprising that a look at the betting odds of the best bookmakers shows that in the first leg between Atalanta Bergamo and Valencia a prediction of the home win is promising.
Key facts – Atalanta Bergamo vs Valencia tips
💫 Despite three defeats at the start, the Lombards qualified for the knockout phase
💫 For the first time, the two teams face each other
💫 None of the nine knockout games in the Champions League have won Valencia (four draws, five losses)
The home strength of the Lombards against the weakness of the Spaniards in the knockout phase are two strong arguments that underpin our recommendation. The victory of the Champions League debutant in front of a home crowd is the best betting option for us. In the round of 16 first leg between Atalanta Bergamo and Valencia, six units will be used for this prediction.
A slightly riskier option is a bet on a penalty. Both teams were awarded three penalties in the preliminary round – maximum. Atalanta striker Josip Ilicic was not only the most fouled player in the last third (eight fouls), but also won two penalties.
