      Atalanta vs Fiorentina Predictions

      Since a very bright start to the 2015/16 season, Atalanta have struggled. They haven’t picked up a win yet in 2016, a stretch of eight games, and they’ve slipped down to 13th in the table, now only seven points clear of third from bottom Frosinone. Manager Edoardo Reja’s response has been to put even greater emphasis on the team’s defensive set-up, and it has brought some success, the team has managed to draw five of its last six games, including matches against Inter Milan, Sassuolo and Empoli.

      It doesn’t get any easier on Sunday though with third place and in-form Fiorentina paying a visit. They were involved in midweek Europa League action, getting slightly the worst of a 1-1 draw against English Premier League side Tottenham. However, they have momentum in Serie A football after picking up an important 2-1 win over fellow top five member, Inter Milan. The top two isn’t out of reach for Fiorentina, but it is hard to look past the third place (final Champions League spot) battle for a team that struggles for absolute consistency.

      Reason for Betting Tips

      As Inter Milan found last week, playing with an ultra defensive set up against a team that loves to dominate the football, like Fiorentina, is dangerous. Atalanta’s recent form has perhaps been slightly better, but we think that the challenge of facing this weekend’s visitors might be just a little too much. Throw in the fact that the Fiorentina to win bet is currently priced at 11/10 on bet365, and we think it represents an excellent betting opportunity.
