Reason For Genoa vs Atalanta Predictions

Atalanta are approaching a major milestone in their history, but first, they head to Genoa on Sunday morning. The visitors are on the verge of their Champions League debut, but before their key clash at Dinamo Zagreb, the club face this tricky clash. There’s a risk that la Dea will take their eye off the ball, which is a concern with Genoa looking strong so far this season.

Genoa have claimed four points from their opening two games, which opened with tough clashes with Roma and Fiorentina. Now the hosts are going up against the side who finished third last term, but they will sense an opening. After all, last term was far from strong for the Grifone, yet they still won this fixture 3-1 during Atalanta’s best-ever campaign.

The visitors won 10 of their 19 away trips last season, a record which they’ll have a tough time repeating. They have already hinted at wider problems, with a win and a defeat from their opening two. After losing out at home to Torino before the international break, there’s genuine concern for the visitors’ focus on the current league campaign.

Genoa beat Fiorentina 2-1 at home last time out, while they fought back from behind on three occasions in a 3-3 draw at Roma in their opener. That points to an improving attack, one which could trouble Atalanta this week. After all, the Grifone were putting their attacking credentials on display before the season started, scoring 17 times in preseason before winning 4-1 in the Coppa Italia first round.

Meanwhile, Atalanta have won 3-2 at SPAL and lost 3-2 at home to Torino this term. The visitors have obvious defensive concerns, while Genoa are well placed to take advantage. We seriously question the mindset of players who are on the verge of a Champions League debut, while their early season form points to them having a tough time here. Genoa are looking creative and clinical, so over 1.5 home team goals is our tip for this one.

Atalanta have scored at least twice in seven of their last eight games, so there’s a good case for them doing well going forward here. On top of that, the visitors haven’t lost any of their last seven away games in Serie A. That could see them pull off a result here, while we can see them matching Genoa in attack. That’s why we’re also going for a 2-2 draw as our correct score prediction for Sunday’s early clash.
