The match of the first round of the Europa League “Atalanta” – “Rakow” will begin on September 21 at the Jewiss stadium (Athleti Azzurri) at 22:00 Moscow time. The Bergamascos had an unstable start to the season, alternating victories and defeats.

The Goddesses played four matches in the Italian Championship. They have two victories to their credit: against Sassuolo (2-0) and Monza (3-0). The surprise was the defeat against Frosinone (1-2) on the 2nd day.
In the last Serie A match, Atalanta lost to Fiorentina (2-3), although the match initially went in their favor. In the first half, Thoen Koepmeiners opened the scoring, but Gasperini’s men could not maintain the advantage.
The Atalanta coach sent on Alexey Miranchuk as a substitute shortly before the final whistle, but the Russian had no effect. This was the midfielder’s first appearance in official matches of the season. Maybe they will give him more playing time in the Europa League match?
Arteta will face a problem
Arsenal-PSV. Mikel Arteta is confused!
Gasperini will not be able to count on forward Gianluca Scamacca. Let us remember that the footballer arrived from West Ham in the summer, but he knew how to adapt quickly and scored two goals for the new club. After the match with Fiorentina, he was diagnosed with a sprain. The recovery period is still unknown.
The red and blue are doing better. They won the last three games of the Polish championship cleanly. The team is in fourth place in the Ekstraklasa standings.
Rakow started qualification for the Champions League in mid-July and went through three rounds. To reach the group stage, they had to beat Copenhagen, but the opponent turned out to be stronger. The red and blue lost at home 0-1 and the away match ended in a draw (1-1).
Raków played four games in European competitions this season on the road and never lost. They defeated Flora (3-0) and Aris (1-0), and in the meetings with Karabakh (1-1) and Copenhagen (1-1) there was a draw. Atalanta remains unstable and the guests have chances. The bet on the victory of “Rakuwa” with a handicap (+1.5) at 2.21 is very likely to win.
Prediction and bets for the Europa League match Atalanta – Rakow on September 21, 2023
Rakow should not be underestimated. He knows how to play defensively and has not conceded more than one goal in his last six games. The Atalanta coach is looking for an optimal tactical scheme that makes it difficult for him to overcome the dense red and blue defense. The Bergamascos are likely to win, but with a difference of no more than one goal. We suggest betting that Rakuva will win with a handicap (+1.5) by 2.21.
Tender: victory for “Rakuva” with a handicap (+1.5) in 2.21.
