All the semi-finalists in the European competitions will be decided this week. Of course, the main intrigue will traditionally be in the Champions League. But the Europa League also has some worthy pairings, most notably Atalanta and RB Leipzig. Which of this pair, Italians or Germans, will win in Bergamo? The website’s expert department has put together a prediction for the central match on April 14, 2022. Full statistics and all current odds for the match can be viewed at 1xbet login.
Atalanta save the season precisely in the Europa League
“Bergamaschi are failing in the current draw in Serie A. It is already obvious that it will not be possible to maintain their traditional place in the top four of the Calcio. They have to finish on 6-7 positions, which is not guaranteed either, as the team have lost so many points in recent months. At the moment, they have dropped out of the Eurocup zone in the table altogether. And this time, they dropped out of the Champions League already after the group round. But it could be good for Gasperini’s boys. They can qualify for the Champions League by winning a lower ranking tournament. So far, they have done well there: they beat Olympiacos and Bayer and, this time, they made it 1-1 in Germany. True, the mentor lamented their failure to win.
RB Leipzig are still trying to play for results on three fronts
The Bulls looked almost the main disappointment of the season at the beginning of December. By then, they had crashed out of the Champions League and were failing in the Bundesliga. The ambitious project management were quick to dismiss Jesse Marsch, who had only replaced Nagelsmann in the summer, and made a bid for Tedesco. The former Spartak coach has already proved that he was the right choice. By April, his side had secured fourth place in the Bundesliga and made it through to the cup semi-finals. They got to the quarterfinals on the back of a favourable start: they got past Real Sociedad in the first leg (by the way, they were also 1-1 up at home but then the Germans won in San Sebastian) before they had to take on Spartak but Domenico’s side were disqualified. It didn’t work out with Atalanta: they lost the 1st half, Andre Silva did not convert the penalty… In the end, everything will be decided in Italy now.
Last Thursday was the first time the clubs met on the pitch.
It is important for both teams to win – especially for Atalanta. But RB Leipzig are also on a roll at the moment, and not ready to stop. We’ll bet on a total of more than 2.5 goals scored (odds of 1.8).
