Venue: Gewiss Stadium (Bergamo)

Atalanta and RB Leipzig come face to face for the second leg of their Europa League quarter-final at the Gewiss Stadium on Thursday.

Locked together following a 1:1 draw in Germany last week, this tie remains very much in the balance with the winners coming up against either Rangers or Braga in the upcoming semi-finals.

Hosts Atalanta, while now favourites to qualify, have struggled on their own patch this season, losing 5 of their last 12 at the Gewiss Stadium since December with just 4 wins during that period.

In contrast, visiting RB arrives in Italy in brilliant away form, winning each of their last 6 on the road and while now underdogs following that 1:1 draw last Thursday, should be confident of returning home with a first-ever Europa League semi-final spot.

Goal chasers will see this fixture as a potentially intriguing contest with RB seeing over 2.5 goals scored in 6 of their last 7 matches on the road while 8 of RB´s last 9 European fixtures also saw BTTS. 8 of those matches also saw over 2.5 goals scored.

Likewise, Atalanta have seen BTTS in 7 of their last 9 European fixtures with 7 of those 9 matches also seeing over 2.5 goals scored and we like the chance of both outcomes here.

Atalanta claimed a big 3:2 home win against German opposition in the shape of Leverkusen in the round of 16 and we expect another entertaining occasion by two teams that do the best of their work on the front foot.

Ultimately though, with RB in great away form, we like the chances of the visitors claiming a semi-final spot following a pulsating occasion in Bergamo where BTTS and the over 2.5 goal picks look solid choices.
