Tip Reasoning

  • Spezia have lost three consecutive games, two of them at home.
  • Only Serie A’s top three can better Atalanta’s record of 36 points taken on the road this term.
  • Both teams have scored in each of Spezia’s last three, while Atalanta have seen goals at both ends in seven of their last eight matches.

Europe still the aim for Atalanta

Despite a largely frustrating Serie A campaign which has seen Atalanta slip to eighth place, they remain within just three points of a spot in the top five, with European football of some description very much their aim with three games remaining. Sunday’s trip to a Spezia team with three defeats in their last three represents a decent opportunity, but the hosts could still make life difficult for Gian Piero Gasperini’s men.

Spezia have seen goals at both ends in each of their last four games, falling to a controversial last-gasp 4-3 loss to Lazio last time out, having also netted in recent defeats to Inter and Torino. Thiago Motta’s men have also scored in each of their last four home games, so could trouble a defence which has shipped 44 Serie A goals this season.

Atalanta, meanwhile, have drawn back-to-back games against Torino and Salernitana, the former a 4-4 thriller, having won their last away game at Venezia. Gasperini’s men’s standards have undoubtedly fallen in the second half of the campaign, with seven of their last eight games containing goals at both ends, but they still boast the league’s fourth-strongest away record.

Visitors can win an entertaining contest

Atalanta’s away record and undoubted attacking quality should be enough to persuade punters to back them on Sunday, particularly given Spezia’s poor form. However, the visitors have conceded 16 goals in their last eight games, so a rejuvenated Spezia attack can strike a blow.

We’re backing Atalanta to win and both teams to score, particularly given Gasperini’s men won the return fixture 5-2 in November. A 3-1 win for the visitors, meanwhile, could be a decent correct score prediction.
