Atalanta vs Fiorentina Predictions

Atalanta to win at 19/20 – ★★☆

Atalanta to win 1-0 at 7/1 -★☆☆

  • Atalanta are one of just two unbeaten teams in Serie A, winning five of their seven games this season.
  • Fiorentina have only won one of their last nine games in all competitions.
  • The Viola are winless on the road this season, posting two draws before losing three consecutive away games in all competitions.

Surprise package Atalanta bid to continue run

If you had been told there would be two unbeaten teams remaining in Serie A after seven matches of the new campaign, few would have tipped them to be Napoli and Atalanta. However, Gian Piero Gasperini has reinvented the Bergamo side this term, instilling a sense of solidity and adopting a counter-attacking style, and their fine form could continue against Fiorentina.

Atalanta’s tally of just three goals conceded is the best in Serie A this campaign, and a return of four points from fixtures against AC Milan and Roma demonstrates they have shaken off the flakiness which cost them in previous campaigns. Only five Serie A teams have faced fewer shots on target than La Dea this term, and only two – Roma and Milan – have given up fewer expected goals (xG). They should fare well against an out-of-shape Viola attack.

Although Fiorentina beat Verona 2-0 prior to the international break, that is their only win in their last nine games, five of which have seen them fail to hit the net. Vincenzo Italiano will also be growing concerned with Fiorentina’s dismal away form; they are winless in five road games this campaign and have lost the last three on the spin. Fiorentina took 66 per cent of their Serie A points at home last season, so those woes are nothing new.

Hosts can see off poor travellers

With Fiorentina struggling on the road and Atalanta demonstrating a newfound defensive rigidity, backing the hosts for another win appears the most prudent play for Sunday’s game.

Meanwhile, Atalanta’s counter-attacking style means a hard-fought 1-0 home victory appears a decent correct score prediction.
