Atalanta vs Manchester United live stream: How to watch Champions League match online and on TV tonight

Manchester United travel to the north of Italy on Tuesday night to face Atalanta of Serie A as they try to strengthen their grip on the top of Group F in the UEFA Champions League.

The Red Devils secured a comeback victory in the reverse fixture a fortnight ago after falling two goals behind in the first-half, with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring a late winner to send Old Trafford wild.

That took United top of the standings, two points ahead of Villarreal in second and their Italian opponents in third.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men have only won three of their last eight fixtures in all competitions, though, and the Norwegian is under significant pressure with the likes of Antonio Conte and Brendan Rodgers linked to his job.

Team news

Raphael Varane returned to action after recovering from a calf injury in the victory over Tottenham on Saturday evening, giving Solskjaer an almost fully fit squad, with Anthony Martial’s lack of match fitness the only current issue.

The Norwegian switched to a 3-5-2 shape in North London as he sought to instil some stability in his defence after the chastening 5-0 defeat to Liverpool, and could either stick with the change or revert to 4-2-3-1 here.

Atalanta have a number of long-term absentees including the Germany wing-back Robin Gosens, who will remain out until December with a hamstring injury, and Italian midfielder Matteo Pessina. Veteran centre-half Rafael Toloi is touch-and-go for this one.

Predicted line-ups

Atalanta: Musso; Lovato, Demiral, De Roon; Zappacosta, Freuler, Koopmeiners, Maehle; Ilicic, Pasalic; Zapata.

Manchester United: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Maguire, Shaw; Fred, McTominay; Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford; Ronaldo.


Atalanta 7/4

Draw 2/4

Manchester United 29/20


Despite United’s troubles, Atalanta’s openness and gung-ho approach to defending should play into the away side’s hands. Expect goals again. 3-1 to United.
