Two of Europe's most entertaining teams meet on Tuesday evening, as Atalanta face Liverpool in the Champions League.

Atalanta player in Serie A action

Both are known for their goalscoring exploits and a thrilling encounter, which will be the first meeting between the pair, could be on the cards in Bergamo this week.

Despite their defensive worries this season, Liverpool are still getting the job done under Jurgen Klopp and they sit top of the Premier League, two points clear of Merseyside rivals Everton.

However, the Reds are struggling with injuries at the back and they remain without defensive talisman Virgil van Dijk, who recently underwent an operation on a serious knee injury.

In Europe, Liverpool have kept back-to-back clean sheets, those coming against Ajax and Midtjylland, but free-scoring Atalanta are expected to pose a much more dangerous threat.

Atalanta have scored 23 goals in their last seven matches and, with Liverpool keeping just one clean sheet in the league this season and conceding 11 in five away outings, over 3.5 goals at 20/21 looks tempting on Tuesday.

Pressure on Real Madrid Ahead of Inter Battle

Zinedine Zidane’s side have yet to win in Europe this season and their chances of qualifying for the knockout stages of the competition could ride on Tuesday’s home clash against Inter Milan.

Inter have drawn three of their last four in all competitions and they are yet to find their groove this season under Antonio Conte, who will be hoping his side can mount a serious challenge for silverware this term.

As for Real, they have won their last two league games, beating Barcelona and Huesca, and they have bagged 11 goals from their last four games across all competitions.

Inter’s away form in Europe doesn’t make for good reading, they have lost four of their last six on their travels in the Champions League, and a home win for Madrid is on offer at 10/11.

PSG Ready to Fight on Without Neymar

Thomas Tuchel’s Paris Saint-Germain will be hoping to chalk up a fourth straight win on Wednesday evening when they make the trip to RB Leipzig, although the visitors will be without star forward Neymar due to a muscle injury.

The two sides met as recently as August, with PSG running out 3-0 winners, although Les Parisiens had Neymar in their ranks that day and Julian Nagelsmann’s Leipzig will feel they have a chance of causing an upset,

Leipzig have won four in a row on home soil, scoring 11 goals in the process, while PSG come into the game on the back of three wins without conceding.

An end-to-end game is highly possible in Germany and PSG to win with both teams to score seems good value at 41/20.
