Atalanta vs Bologna Match Prediction

By William Hall

Atalanta welcome Bologna to Stadio Atleti Azzurri d'Italia this weekend in Serie A. Atalanta come into this one off the back of their first defeat in their previous five, getting beat 3-1 away to Sampdoria. Bologna made it three wins in three on the weekend beating SPAL 2-1 on home soil. I can see this being one of the more entertaining matches of Serie A this weekend. Read on for a full match preview complete with all our best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Both sides will go into this one feeling they can get something from the game. At this stage, Bolgona look as if they are the better team. However, Atalanta rarely drops many points on home soil and will be looking to make that same statement this weekend. Goals haven't been a problem for the home team it has been keeping their opponents out which is the real problem. I think they could be in for that same problem this weekend with Bologna scoring at least one in all of their last four away games in the league. In fact, Bologna have won three of their previous four games on the road showing they are not afraid to take the games to teams even on the road. Here are my favourite betting tips and predictions for the game.

Both teams to score - 19/20

Atalanta Preview

Atalanta will be disappointed with how their last five matches have gone, winning just once, drawing three times and losing one. That one defeat did come last time out which made it three games without a win for the side seeing them slip to 12th in Serie A. It's not been aa lack of goals that has hurt Atalanta this season having socred 13 in just eight games, it has been keeping them out the other end which has proven to be a problem. If they can start to sure up their defence, they have every chance of competing up near the top of the table which could see them get into the Europa League come the end of the season. There is no doubt there is enough quality in the squad to be able to challenge the top teams in the league.

Atalanta Team News

Atalanta could be without just one player this weekend with Joao Felipe Schmidt (meniscus injury) out.

Bologna Preview

After a lousy start from Bologna, they have turned it around very well winning all of their last three games and unbeaten in four. This has seen them climb all the way to 7th in Serie A which would have filled them with confidence. This is probably the toughest test they have faced since the 1-1 draw with Inter Milan a few weeks back, but there is not doubt they can go and get something from this one. Although 2-1 sounds like it was a close game with SPAL last time out, they controlled the game for huge parts with an 88th-minute consolation goal making the scoreline look more intimate than the game was. Bologna will see this as an excellent chance to get more points off one of the better teams in the league.

Bologna Team News

Bologna have two players who have been back in training this weekend with Cesar Falletti (ankle injury) and Cheick Keita (groin injury) looking to make returns. Domenico Maietta doesn't look as if he will be fit to return this weekend after picking up a broken rib a couple of weeks ago.
