Borussia Dortmund vs Atalanta Preview
Borussia Dortmund have had a relatively disappointing season so far. They currently sit third in the Bundesliga, nineteen points off leaders Bayern Munich and were eliminated from the Champions League group stages without winning a single game, picking up a total of just two points. Dortmund’s priorities will be to finish the season in the top four to ensure a spot in the Champions League next season but they will also want to savour something from this season by progressing into the next round of the Europa League. Dortmund manager Peter Stöger will be concerned by the fact that his team have only won two of their last eleven matches at home but will take confidence in picking up two wins and two draws from their last four games, including a recent 2-0 victory over Hamburger SV.
Striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang left the club in January to join Arsenal and was replaced by loan-signing Michy Batshuayi from Chelsea who picked up his debut, along with a goal, in the 2-0 victory over Hamburger on Saturday.
Dortmund have a string of players unavailable for the fixture including Jadon Sancho, Andriy Yarmolenko, Sebastian Rode, Maximilian Philipp, Marcel Schmelzer and Erik Durm. However, Stöger should have enough depth in his squad to put out a strong side.
Atalanta went unbeaten in the Europa League group stages, finishing top of their group above Lyon, Everton and Apollon, finishing on 14 points from a possible 18. In the league they sit in a comfortable 8th position. They still have a chance of qualifying for Europe next season but they will want to give everything this time around considering their form in the competition thus far.
Atalanta have only lost three of their last sixteen matches and their away form is even more impressive with not having lost on the road since November. Manager, Gian Piero Gasperini has a full squad to choose from and will likely set his side up similar to that which breezed through the groups stages.

Borussia Dortmund vs Atalanta Predictions
Borussia Dortmund have only failed to find the back of the net once in their last 27 competitive games where Atalanta have only failed to score in 4 matches in their 33 games this season. We’re expecting this to be a very good game against two sides which have the ability to score goals. Given Atalanta’s form in the competition this term, it wouldn’t be suprising to see them match Dortmund and take away one or two vital away goals.
