Will Atalanta play into Salah & Mane’s hands?

Given the bold man marking style employed by the Italian side, they leave themselves at the risk of being torn apart by Liverpool’s African frontmen
As the dust on this season’s Champions League draw settled, groups B and D stood out as the ‘Groups of Death’.

Indeed, that query is undoubtedly subjective but Group D — comprising Liverpool, Ajax, Atalanta and Midtjylland — seemed more exciting than the former — containing Real Madrid, Shakhtar Donetsk, Inter Milan and Borussia Monchengladbach….just.

While it’s played out differently in reality so far, with the Ukraine and German side respectively sitting in first and second place, Atalanta vs Ajax last week finally saw Group D come alive…which has whet the appetite before the Serie A side host the Reds on Tuesday.
