Manchester United are searching for their third consecutive win in their Champions League group when they visit Atalanta on Tuesday as the Serie A side look to overtake them in Group F
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will need another win to keep his job safe when Manchester United travel to Italy to face Atalanta in the Champions’ League group stage, just two weeks after the Red Devils came from behind to beat their opponents 3-2 at Old Trafford.
A dismal first half display left United 2-0 down at the break but goals from Marcus Rashford, Harry Maguire and Cristiano Ronaldo staged an impressive second half comeback.
United have already lost 2-1 to Young Boys and defeated Villareal by the same scoreline as they sit top of the group on six points.
Their Italian hosts for this fixture are in third place and on four points, yet a win here would lift them above United in the group.
This is the second of three games that Solskjaer has been given to save his job, so anything but a win could spell trouble for the Norwegian.
Can United grab all three points on Tuesday night in Italy? Have your say in the comments below.
When is Atalanta vs Manchester United?
