In the upcoming fixture of Serie A, two equals are going to contest with each other to climb higher on the points table and would dream to end up in the top 4 so that they can get a confirmed ticket to the next year’s UEFA Champions League competition. Now that the international break is over, both the teams would like to start the last quarter of the season with a win. For Atalanta, they have won their last two league games and would try to continue their winning streak in this game as well. For the guests, things would not be easy because they lost 4 of their last five league games and in this game they would try to push themselves further so that they can keep the three match points to themselves and give their opponent for this game a run for their position on the points table if they win.

Our bet is on the home team, Atalanta for this game because they have been the better team so far in the season if they are to be compared with their opponents for this game because the guests have lost 5 of their last 6 away matches and it remains doubtful if they can break the pattern and implement a win but that stays doubtful. Atalanta was trailing behind but after winning three of their last four league games they dethroned Sampdoria from the 7th place to the 8th placed position and now this game builds up the momentum for both the teams, whoever wins will challenge the 7th position on the points table. Things are looking difficult for the guests because if they keep on losing matches then the chances are higher that they may fall down the top 10 teams on the Serie A points table so expect a thrilling game from both the teams as they would fight each other to prove who is better and who is not.
