Gasperini can guide Atalanta to glory
Atalanta’s meteoric rise from also rans into one of Italy and Europe’s most exciting teams under Gian Piero Gasperini has been incredible to watch over the past few seasons, though they have yet to land the silverware that this era of sparkling football deserves.
La Dea go to Reggio nell’Emilia in search of that trophy on Wednesday evening when they take on serial winners Juventus in the final of the Coppa Italia – a competition Atalanta have won only once in their history in 1963.
Atalanta will finish ahead of the Old Lady in Serie A this term, though Gasperini described the prospect of winning the cup against Juventus as the “cherry on the cake” – and we think his warriors from Bergamo are worth backing to prevail.
Gasperini’s charges are finishing the domestic season in style and their haul of eight wins and two draws in their last ten Serie A assignments produced tons of goals and included a 1-0 victory over Juve in mid-April. Indeed, Atalanta have lost only one of their last seven encounters with the giants from Turin overall.
Juventus have blown hot and cold for the majority of the campaign and they are on course to post their lowest league finish since 2011 this season.
In contrast, Atalanta will be wielding a powerful mix of confidence and momentum against what should be a nervous Juve outfit who will know that the knives will be out if they fail to produce the good in the final.
We’re backing a free-wheeling Atalanta team to make history on Wednesday, while our 2-1 correct score prediction forecasts goals at both ends for the sixth time in eight meetings between the clubs.
