Fiorentina vs Atalanta Match Prediction

By William Hall

9th take on 10th this weekend as Fiorentina welcome Atalanta to Stadio Artemio Franchi in Serie A. Fiorentina come into this one of the back of a 1-0 defeat away to Juventus, which was a game where the away side were unlucky not to get anything. Atalanta will travel to Fiorentina feeling very confident after beating Crotone 5-1 during the week. With Fiorentina needing a reaction and Atalanta in great form, this could be one of the best games of the weekend. Read on for a full match preview complete with all our best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

For me, this looks like it could be the best game in Serie A this weekend. Whenever both of these teams are involved, you can count on plenty of goals and a lot of entertainment. Last season, we saw both games between these two teams end 0-0. However, before that, we had seen over 2.5 goals and both teams to score in four straight meetings between the teams. I expect it to go back to those kind of scorelines this weekend. With Fiorentina coming into the game off the back of the defeat, they will want to put things right and get back to winning ways this weekend.

Atalanta have found some solid form and will want to maintain that this weekend. If you asked them now, I would think they would take the draw, but with the side in great form, there is no reason why they can't go and beat Fiorentina. Atalanta's form in all competitions is excellent, not losing in five and winning four in that time. I can see them getting something from this one whether it is a win or draw.

Fiorentina Preview

Although Fiorentina come into the game off the back of a defeat to Juventus, spirits will still be high after back to back wins beforehand. Those wins came away to Hellas Verona as they put five in and a 2-1 win at home to Bologna last weekend. Being the home team in this one, they should be expecting to be on the upper hand for long spells of the game, but if they are to beat this Atalanta side, they will need to take their chances. No one has run away with the scoring so far for Fiorentina this season. Instead, a number of players have managed to help out the side by getting on the scoresheet. If one thing is for sure, whenever Fiorentina are in action, you can be sure to see a lot of goals as they score a lot, but are also very leaky at the back.

Fiorentina Team News

Fiorentina will be without one with Milan Badelj serving a one match ban for two yellows against Juventus during the week.

Atalanta Preview

Atalanta had an abysmal start to the season, losing their opening two games at home to Roma and away to Napoli. However, since then they have had two wins and a draw to take them above their opponents this weekend. As mentioned with Fiorentina, Atalanta are another side you can count on to have goals in their games, with both teams scoring in four of their first five games this season. Italia forward Andrea Petagna looks as if he could be the biggest threat for the side this season, scoring two goals so far this campaign. The 5-1 win in Atlanta last game would have filled them with confidence with Fiorentina on the horizon. They were already 3-0 up at halftime, pretty much putting the game out of sight. Two more goals in the second half wrapped the game even though Crotone were able to get a consolation.

Atalanta Team News

Atalanta have two players out this weekend with leonardo Spinazzoli (ankle injury) and Joao Urbano (muscle injury) both sidelined.
