It’s gameweek 3 of the Champions League and what a game we have in the tray. English giants Man United takes on the Italian heavyweights Atalanta at their own backyard Old Trafford on Wednesday.
The Red Devils welcomes Atalanta fresh off the defeat at the hands of Leicester City when they ventured to the foxes stadium. The 2-4 defeat in the Premier League wasn’t something the Reds from Manchester expected even though they went ahead first. With a victory in this match, Man United are hopeful to make a strong comeback.
Atalanta on the other hand are quite a strong force to be reckoned with. They’re the group leaders of this group with 4 points after 2 matches, 1 more than Man United and are placed 6th in the Serie A. The Italian side comes to Old Trafford after a thumping 4-1 victory over Empoli and are looking forward to salvage all 3 available points in this match.
Date: October 20, 2021.
Time: 08:00 PM BST, 09:00 PM CET, 03:00 AM EDT.
Place: Old Trafford Stadium, Manchester, England.
Referee: Szymon Marciniak.
