In Group F the 20-time English champions are presently in first place with six points from three games, including a 3-2 triumph against Atalanta at Old Trafford last time out. Here is everything you need to know about Atalanta vs Manchester United football prediction for the Champions League match of the season.
Despite the fact that the Serie A team is missing five players Atalanta has no new injury concerns.
Marten de Roon could return to the defense due to the unavailability of both Rafael Toloi and Berat Djimsiti.

Atalanta vs Manchester United Prediction
In gameweek three, Atalanta jumped out to a 2-0 lead at Old Trafford, but they were beaten 3-2 by Manchester United. In the three games since, they’ve collected five points out of a possible nine.
With a 3-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, Manchester United bounced back from a 5-0 loss to Liverpool. They’ve won just three of their last eight games, which is still a lot of inconsistency.
On Tuesday night United may edge Atalanta, owing to the side’s stability, which can be seen in a three-man backline in north London.
In Man United’s last ten games, there have been more than 2.5 goals scored (Champions League).
Atalanta possible starting lineup: Musso; Palomino, Demiral, Roon; Maehle, Freuler, Koopmeiners, Zappacosta; Ilicic, Pasalic, Zapata
Manchester United possible starting lineup: de Gea; Lindelof, Varane, Maguire; Wan-Bissaka, McTominay, Fred, Shaw, Fernandes; Ronaldo, Cavani
Our Prediction: Atalanta 1 – 2 Manchester United
