ATN Vs VAL Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Waning Valencia come across a relentless and ruthless Atalanta attacking unit.
The last time Valencia stepped out in the Champions League, it was a defining moment for the club. Showing immense fight and character against Ajax to pull off an unprecedented 1-0 win on the night, Valencia not only stunned their opponents but managed to squirm their way to this stage by the barest of margins.
The win instilled immense confidence in their rank, helping overhaul an underwhelming period to make massive strides in La Liga as well. However, their hardwork has been undone at the wrong time with the club unravelling across the past month to totter their way in La Liga and stumble down into 7th spot with a mere 2 wins in their last five encounters.
It’s a dire situation for the visiting unit, one Atalanta will spare no expense in capitalising on. Sitting in 4th place in Serie A, the side has been immensely rewarded for their flair filled and quirky brand of attacking football, one which has seen them earn a flurry of accolades this season.
ATN Vs VAL Probable Winner
While Valencia will look to make life jittery for today’s hosts, Atalanta’s attack is going to be too stern a test for them to curb. The home side should manage to pile on a slew of goals on the day, ones which will see them take away a solid advantage from this double header.
