Atalanta -1

Reason for tip

Atalanta have won four of their last seven games, beating a -1 handicap in each of those victories. Having recorded 8-2 and 5-2 wins in recent weeks, Atalanta have scored 41 league goals this term – a tally only bettered by Napoli (54) in Serie A.

Atalanta 2-0

Reason for tip

Lecce have conceded multiple goals in three of their last five league games after only doing so in three of their first 17 outings of the Serie A season. No Serie A side averages fewer shots or shots on target per game than the visitors, so it’s difficult to see them troubling third-placed Atalanta.

Ademola Lookman To Score Anytime

Reason for tip

Ademola Lookman leads Atalanta’s scoring charts with 12 league goals this term, and has hit the net seven times in their last six matches. The Nigeria international also has seven goals in his last five home games, and he could continue his fine run of form on Sunday.

Atalanta vs Lecce Predictions

  • Atalanta have won four of their last seven matches, beating a -1 handicap in each of those victories.
  • Lecce only have one win in their last six games, against winless Cremonese.
  • Lecce only conceded multiple goals in three of their first 17 league matches this term, but have now done so in three of their last five.

La Dea out for revenge

Atalanta succumbed to a 2-1 defeat at Lecce shortly before the World Cup break, but their response since that setback has been good, allowing them to move into third place and build momentum behind their push for Champions League qualification. Lecce, meanwhile, have been inconsistent of late, and they are big outsiders for their bid to claim a similar result when they visit Bergamo on Sunday.

Atalanta have won four of their last seven games, culminating in last week’s routine 2-0 triumph at Lazio. If that scoreline was not impressive enough against a Biancocelesti side also competing for a top-four finish, La Dea created 3.0 expected goals and attempted 23 shots in a terrific performance. Each of Atalanta’s last four wins, a run featuring 8-2 and 5-2 scorelines, have come by more than one goal, and only Napoli (54) have now bettered their tally of 41 goals in Serie A this campaign.

Lecce, meanwhile, have only won once in their last six games, beating Serie A’s only winless outfit and bottom club Cremonese 2-0 a fortnight ago. Lecce were fortunate to claim a 1-1 draw against Roma last week after spending much of that contest under pressure and benefitting from an own goal, and their defensive performances have worsened of late – having only conceded multiple goals in three of their first 17 league games this term, they have now done so in three of their last five.

Atalanta can beat handicap

With Atalanta’s attack in excellent form and Lecce averaging below a goal per game on the road this term (nine in 11 Serie A games), it’s not difficult to foresee a handicap-busting win for the hosts.

While Atalanta to beat a -1 handicap is our main selection, a 2-0 home victory could represent a solid correct score prediction – Despite Lecce’s solid campaign, no Serie A team has averaged fewer shots (9.91) or shots on target (2.86) per game this season.

Meanwhile, for those that fancy an anytime goalscorer punt, Ademola Lookman has 12 league goals this term and has hit the net seven times in his last six outings for Atalanta, so he represents a fine selection.
