Atalanta sit at the top of Group E heading into tonight’s final group match, however they are above second-placed Lyon on goal difference alone and top-spot is very much up for grabs when these two sides go head-to-head in Italy tonight. Atalanta’s last European outing ended in a 5-1 hammering of Everton at Goodison Park two weeks ago and they have enjoyed an excellent group campaign which has seen them manage three wins and two draws for their efforts. They have been especially solid in front of their home fans with convincing wins in each of their two home matches, however they will certainly be in for their biggest test of the competition when Ligue One side Lyon come to town this evening.

The French outfit have also enjoyed an excellent Champions League group campaign thus far and head into tonight’s match on the back of three convincing European victories with the side beating Everton away (1-2), Everton at home (3-0) and Apollon Limassol (4-0). They have also impressed in the French top-flight and will have been boosted by their weekend 2-1 win at Caen. Indeed Lyon have been strong on their travels this season with just a single defeat in their ten away games, this being against French title favourites Paris Saint Germain. We believe that Lyon will give a decent account of themselves in Italy tonight, however we don’t envisage Atalanta losing in front of their home fans and another stalemate between these two sides looks the most likely outcome, this result enough to keep the Italians at the top of the table in this final group game.
