Here is a football prediction on Atalanta vs Manchester United Champions League match.
In spite of 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 as both Rafael Toloi and Berat Djimsiti wll be unavailable.
Ruslan Malinovskyi may also be left out of the starting XI.

Atalanta vs Manchester United Prediction
In game week three at Old Trafford Atalanta jumped out to a 2-0 lead but they were beaten 3-2 by Manchester United. Since then they have collected five points out of a possible nine in three games.
Manchester United bounced back from a 5-0 loss to Liverpool with a 3-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday. They’ve won just three of their last eight games, which is still a lot of inconsistency.
United may edge Atalanta on Tuesday night, 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
