Tip Reasoning

  • Spezia’s only away Serie A points came at fellow strugglers Venezia and Cagliari. They conceded 15 goals in losing their other 4 away games.
  • Atalanta have only failed to score in 1 Serie A game this term, but have also kept only 2 clean sheets.
  • Atalanta are unbeaten in 5 league matches, which featured a total of 18 goals.

Goals Always Likely in Bergamo

Gian Piero Gasperini’s Atalanta have been their usual entertaining selves this season; they’ve scored in all but 1 of their Serie A games, but managed just 2 clean sheets of their own. The Bergamo-based club are also on a 5-match unbeaten run in Serie A, with those 5 matches featuring 18 goals. Atalanta are again chasing Champions League qualification in Serie A, and if not for Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo, would  have already secured safe passage through the group stage this time around.

Gasperini’s side have, admittedly, impressed more on their travels than on their home ground in 2021-22. They’ve won 5 of 6 on the road in Serie A, the exception being a creditable 2-2 draw with Inter, but Bologna, Udinese, Fiorentina and Milan have all secured results when visiting Bergamo this season.

Atalanta to Overwhelm Strugglers?

The hosts have a fantastic opportunity to rectify their underwhelming home record this Saturday, as they welcome a Spezia side who have already shipped a huge 18 goals on their travels, only earning positive results at fellow relegation-battlers Venezia and Cagliari.

Only 5 Serie A teams have allowed their opponents more shots at goal than Thiago Motta’s Spezia, who also have the league’s third-worst record when it comes to expected goals against. Duvan Zapata, Josip Ilicic & co will surely be licking their lips ahead of this match.

Atalanta should have far too much quality for their visitors on Saturday afternoon; I’m backing them to remain in the Champions League places with a relatively comfortable victory. As is almost always the case with Atalanta, who scored a total of 188 goals across the 2019-20 and 2020-21 seasons, goals are anticipated. The hosts to win with over 2.5 match goals seems likely, with 3-1 a solid correct score prediction.
