Atalanta Vs Manchester City November 6 2019 Kick Off 20:00 GMT

Atalanta face an uphill battle to qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League after losing each of their first three group stage games in the competition.

The Serie A outfit next host reigning Premier League champions Manchester City, who have lost just twice all season.

Pep Guardiola has several names unavailable to him as he prepares to bring his squad to Italy.

Winger Leroy Sane and center-back Aymeric Laporte are both long-term absentees with serious knee injuries and remain sidelined for this one.

City are also without defensive midfielder Rodri, left-back Oleksandr Zinchenko and the suspended Phil Foden, who was sent off in the reverse fixture.

David Silva is also a major doubt, leaving Guardiola light on central midfield options at present.

For Atalanta, striker Duvan Zapata is unavailable as he recovers from a muscle injury, but Giamperini has an otherwise fully-fit squad to choose from.

Predicted Lineups:

Atalanta: Gollini; Toloi, Palomino, Djimsiti; Castagne, Freuler, Pasalic, Gosens; Gomez; Ilicic, Muriel

Manchester City: Ederson; Walker, Stones, Otamendi, Angelino; Fernandinho, Gundogan, De Bruyne; B. Silva, Aguero, Sterling
