Palermo vs Atalanta Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Palermo and Atalanta will be facing each other at the Stadio Renzo Barbera on Sunday afternoon, with both teams looking to build on their recent victories in the Serie A. Palermo picked up a hard-fought 1-0 home victory over Crotone last time out thanks to a first-half goal from Ilija Nestorovski. Meanwhile, Atalanta won 2-0 at home against Cagliari, with Alejandro Gomez scoring a first-half brace for Gian Piero Gasperini’s side. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Palermo Preview

Palermo finally returned to winning ways last weekend thanks to a narrow 1-0 home win over Crotone. Before this result, Palermo were on a five-game winless streak in the Serie A, losing three and drawing two in the process. Despite the victory, Palermo still find themselves in a precarious situation as they sit in 18th spot in the standings, nine points behind safety. The Rosanero have struggled at both ends of the field throughout the season, but their biggest problems have been at the back. They have conceded 42 goals in 23 league games, which is the third worst defensive record in the division. The Rosanero also looked poor going forward, as they only managed 19 goals so far this season. Despite this poor record, Ilija Nestorovski has enjoyed a strong Serie A campaign, helping the team with nine goals and three assists in his 23 league appearances. Robin Quaison has also played a vital part in Palermo’s performances throughout the season, as he scored four goals in his 17 appearances in the Serie A. On home soil, Palermo were on eleven-game winless streak in all competitions prior to their 1-0 victory over Crotone in their most recent home league fixture. Also, Palermo are winless in the last three home meetings with Atalanta in the Serie A, conceding at least two goals in each of these.

Atalanta Preview

Atalanta struggled a little bit in the early part of the new year, but it seems they have found some consistency of late. La Dea head into this clash on the back of a three-game unbeaten run in the Serie A, including a 2-0 home victory over Cagliari last weekend. They looked very solid at the back during their recent run, conceding just once in three league fixtures. This means that Atalanta are now in sixth position in the standings tied on 42 points with the 5th-placed Inter, just one point off the 4th-placed Lazio. La Dea have been scoring goals for fun throughout this Serie A campaign, as they have one of the best offensive records in the division with 36 goals scored in 23 rounds. Atalanta can count on their away form ahead of this clash as they have the third joint best away record in the division, having collected 18 points from their 12 league fixtures. However, they haven’t been at their best on the road over the past two months, winning just once in their last six away games across all competitions. The good news is that Atalanta are undefeated in the last three visits to the Stadio Renzo Barbera, scoring at least two goals in each of these. Alejandro Gomez is leading the club’s goalscoring charts with eight goals under his belt, while Franck Kessie and Jasmin Kurtic have bagged eleven goals and three assists between them.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Atalanta are the in-form team in this one, and they should have enough firepower within their squad to secure a win. However, Palermo head on a high into this clash following their recent home victory over Crotone. I’m backing Atalanta to win, but I’m also expecting Palermo to get on the scoresheet as Ilija Nestorovski has enjoyed an impressive Serie A campaign, scoring in each of Palermo’s recent two league outings.
