Sam’s Betting Tips – Valencia CF vs Atalanta BC

“Valencia have a huge task on their hands to turn this one around. They need at least three goals without reply to qualify, but that is a tall order against an Atalanta side who have only failed to score in just three games all season in all competitions. The visitors put seven past Lecce at the weekend, incredibly the third time they have scored seven goals in a game this season. Expect another high-scoring game with goals at both ends.”

  1. Atalanta – 13/10*
