Reason For Verona vs Atalanta Predictions

  • Atalanta have won 10 of their last 11 games

  • Verona have lost four of their six home meetings with sides above them this season
  • Over 2.5 goals has landed in 79% of Atalanta’s games

Master and apprentice

It was another routine night for Atalanta on Tuesday, with la Dea hitting six goals in a demolition of Brescia. That was the fourth time that they’ve scored six or more this season, marking them out as one of the most impressive teams across Europe.

That comes as little surprise to Verona manager Ivan Juric, who worked with Atalanta boss Gian Piero Gasperini when he was at Inter Milan and Palermo. He was recently full of praise for his former boss, who has guided a middling side into the most dynamic attacking team in the continent. We’re backing Juric to be the latest to fall short against Gasperini’s in our predictions.

Atalanta going from strength to strength

Having played the champions off the park on their own patch, Atalanta continued their incredible run with a victory over Brescia. That was their 10th victory in 11 games, a run which has put la Dea in the frame to finish in the top two in Serie A. The hype around them continued in the aftermath of the Juve game, with the club hailed as the best in Italy. That’s unlikely to change any time soon.

Juve’s late equaliser in that 2-2 draw has robbed up of a thrilling finale in the title race, as Atalanta would have had the opportunity to move within a point of Juve with a victory, with the champions facing Lazio on Monday. Instead, Gasperini’s men are looking to continue their push for second, while they’ll comfortably outscore the rest of the division, hitting 93 goals in 33 matches.

La Dea too strong for Verona

While Verona have had a strong year in the top-flight under Juric, their failure to make Europe has been down to a poor record against the better sides in the division. Verona have lost four of six clashes with the top eight at home, with Atalanta eager to add to that. Given that these games without fans tend to remove home advantage, on an even playing field the in-form visitors should be far too strong for Verona.

Since the restart, Atalanta have taken 22 points from a possible 24 and scored 23 goals. Verona are conceding at a rate of two per game, letting in twice or more in six of their last seven. Atalanta can add to that, so we’re going with an away win and over 2.5 goals to be scored, with over 2.5 goals landing in 79% of la Dea’s matches.

Meanwhile, Atalanta have conceded twice in three of their last four matches, while Verona have hit two goals in three of four at home. That shouldn’t be a problem for a side who have scored almost three goals per game, so we’re backing a 3-2 away win as our correct score prediction.
