Our Prediction:

Atalanta will win

Atalanta – Fiorentina Match Prediction | 23-09-2019 12:00

There are no injuries or suspensions in the squad. Defeat like that surely casts a shadow over otherwise decent league start with two wins (SPAL 3-2, Genoa 2-1) and a loss (Torino 1-2). Atalanta are back in their comfort zone and set to host Fiorentina on Sunday. The match will be played in Parma as their Gewiss Stadium is under renovation.

The Viola, on the other hand, did remarkably well to hold reigning champions Juventus to a goalless draw at the weekend, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the trip to Bergamo. Atalanta will be aiming to build on a 2-1 win over Genoa when they face Fiorentina in Bergamo on Matchday 4. The Orobici head into the match following the Champions League clash against Dinamo Zagreb, meaning that tired legs could prove to be a big problem for the home side.

Recent Competition Form

A game that involves two teams having a very different start to the season. There is probably only a little between these two teams in terms of ability, but a huge gap in terms of how they are playing right now. Atalanta are up towards the top of the table, they have two wins from three games, with a five goal thriller their only defeat so far, that came against Torino.

We think Atalanta have the upper hand here, they come into the game playing well and they can show that form once again to bag another victory. Goals look set to feature again too, they like to score and will get opportunities but do look a little vulnerable at the back. With that in mind we are also going to back both teams to score in this one.

Atalanta have been scoring goals for fun in the Italian top flight at the start of the season and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Fiorentina. Considering that the visitors should have a number of opportunities to find the net on the break, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw.

Fiorentina, commonly known as the Purples didnt start this years campaign very well. In the most recent 5 matches in all competitions, they recorded 2 wins, 2 losses and 1 draw, while scoring 8 goals and conceding 7. Good thing for them was an unsuspected drawn match they played against Juventus, in which the reigning champions just couldnt make it through their defence and score, so that could help them be a bit more confident in this match. In fact, they are still winless, and thats why they are currently sitting at the bottom of the table in 19th place, with 1 point and 4:6 goal difference.

Atalanta vs Fiorentina H2H

Atalanta are in need of a retooling following that loss, with a crucial Serie A game coming just days later. While they continue to play their games in Parma, thats no major obstacle for a side who have been in that position quite frequently in recent years. They are up against Fiorentina, a side who have started slowly but have ambitions of a European place. Despite their midweek slump, Atalanta come into this one on solid footing domestically, following two wins from two in the league.
