Why bet on Atalanta against Liverpool?
Although Liverpool smashed Atalanta, the well-regarded Serie A team hasn’t let the loss deter them. Before losing to Liverpool, Atalanta had drawn with Ajax and had beaten Crotone 2-1. Since the loss, the underdogs in this match have drawn with a couple of strong Serie A rivals. If Atalanta learned anything from the loss, they should be much more competitive against Liverpool on Wednesday than they were in the first game.

Atalanta Vs Liverpool Final Betting Analysis
Liverpool squashed Atalanta 5-0 in the first match. There’s nothing that tells us Pool will have trouble dominating Atalanta in the rematch. However, the handicap makes Atalanta the play.
Even though Liverpool could rock their rivals on Nov. 25, there’s no reason for Pool to push too hard. They’ve got a 5 point lead over both Atalanta and Ajax in Group D. If Atalanta comes with their best game, they could keep this within the 1-goal handicap.
Also, Atalanta should have learned something from the 0-5 beating. Atalanta won’t take as many chances as they did in the first game. Instead, they will try to push for a draw. That could work in their favor.
