Atalanta has been doing well to keep its head above water with some of the top competition in Italian Serie A. Next up for the team in the UEFA Champions League is Swiss power BSC Young Boys, who raised plenty of eyebrows with a 2-1 win against Manchester United to open Group play. La Dea has found success without any one player producing at an extraordinary level, but someone has to step up for Atalanta to get its first Champions League win on Wednesday at Gewiss Stadium. You can catch all the action live on Paramount+.

UEFA Champions League picks for Young Boys vs. Atalanta
Before you tune in to Wednesday's match, you need to see the Atalanta vs. Young Boys picks from European soccer insider Martin Green. After working in the sports betting industry for several years, Green became a professional sports writer and handicapper and has covered the game worldwide. Since then, his European soccer picks have been spot-on. Green has generated over $36,000 for $100 bettors since the 2017-18 season. He's also been red-hot on his Champions League picks since joining SportsLine. In fact, Green is on a blistering 86-53-5 run on his UCL best bets. Anyone who has followed him is way up.
For Young Boys vs. Atalanta, Green is picking Atalanta to win by a score of 2-1 (+750). Neither side has been able to take a positive result without conceding a goal in recent matches. Atalanta's last clean sheet came on September 18 against Serie A bottom-dweller Salernitana in a 1-0 win.
Young Boys' recent performances suggest that they should have enough firepower to keep Atalanta scrambling to keep pace. The defending Swiss League champions have played more matches in recent weeks than Atalanta, and that experience playing together should continue to pay off on the offensive end.
"Young Boys won the Swiss league with ease last season, scoring 74 goals in 36 games and finishing 31 points clear of runner-up Basel," Green told SportsLine. "They have made a slower start to the current campaign, but they have won their last five matches in all competitions: 4-0 against FC Zurich, 2-1 against Man Utd, 5-1 against Iliria, 6-1 against Lausanne and 2-1 against St. Gallen."
