Pep Guardiola Preview

“Both teams are very brave and will try to impose their game, we will have to adapt to a certain extent and they will have to do the same.

“I hope it will be an open match, Atalanta score a lot but they sometimes concede, we do the same, it will be a lively match.

It’s a great joy to watch (Atalanta manager Gasperini's) team play.They’re brave, they respect their supporters and that’s the way they play.

“The way they play is quite unusual they take quite a few risks and I’m sure they’ll play that way.”

Last Time Out

Two quickfire first-half goals from Gabriel Jesus and David Silva were enough to earn Manchester City a 2-0 win away to Crystal Palace.

Atalanta on the other hand drew 3-3 away to Lazio, surrendering a 3-0 half-time lead but extending their unbeaten run in Serie A to six matches.

In the Champions League, the sides had contrasting fortunes on Matchday 2 with City seeing off Dynamo Zagreb 2-0, while were beaten 2-1 at home by Shakhtar in stoppage time.

Last Meeting

Tuesday’s Champions League clash will be the first time the two sides have faced each other.

In fact, Atalanta have previously faced only one English side in a European competition, that being Everton in the 2017/18 Europa League Group Stages.
