Sampdoria vs Atalanta Match Prediction

By William Hall

Two of Serie A's more inform sides go head to head this weekend as Sampdoria welcome Atalanta to the Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris. Before Sampdoria's shock defeat to Udinese last time out, they were yet to lose a game in the league, currently sitting 8th in the table with a game in hand over all but one team above them. Atalanta had a shocking start to the season losing two games in a row. However, they have since been unbeaten winning two and drawing three. Read on for a full match preview complete with all our best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

With both sides in excellent form and coming into this game full of confidence, I think it could be an excellent game to watch this weekend. Ye, Sampdoria had a shocker last time out getting thumped by Udinese 4-0, but if you look at their form this season, I think you would agree they are a good team and a hard one to beat in this league. Atalanta have been unbeaten in their last five in Serie A which shows they are making it hard for teams to get the better of them whether they are playing at home or away. Neither of these sides are struggling to find the back of the net this season, getting 20+ goals between them in just seven games. However, it seems Sampdoria are looking a lot better defensively this season having conceded just eight to Atalanta's 10. As a winner of this game, I think it is very tough to call, but for me, I can see this game having a lot of goals and both teams getting on the scoresheet.

Both teams to score - 4/6

Over 2.5 goals 17/20

Sampdoria Preview

Sampdoria look like a good side this season and have proven just that through their first six games. Wins against Fiorentina and AC Milan are some of the best so far this season, but if they want to challenge for a European spot come the end of the season, they must go and win games like these. Last time out Udinese were shocked and hammered away to Udinese, conceding four goals. They will be looking to bounce back this weekend and get back to winning ways as soon as possible to make sure they don't end up going on a bad run. 34-year-old Fabio Quagliarella has been the sides biggest threat this season, scoring four goals in just six games for the club. His experience is proving massive for the team, and with the player scoring just 12 goals last season, he will be keen to beat that and challenge with the best forwards in the league.

Sampdoria Team News

Sampdoria will be without five players this weekend with Emiliano Viviano (knee injury), Gianluca Caprari (flu), Leonardo Capezzi (ankle injury), Jose Dodo (broken wrist) and Edgar Barreto (suspension) all out.

Atalanta Preview

Atalanta had a shocking start to the season losing two games on the bounce leaving them bottom of the league. However, they have since turned it around and are now four games unbeaten in Serie A. Their most recent result saw them draw 2-2 at home to Juventus which is an excellent result for more than one reason. One is that it is a point of one of the best teams in the league and two is that at halftime Atalanta were 2-0 down. To show the character and attitude to get back into the game is great to see and something they can take a lot of confidence from. Argentine midfielder Alejandro Gomez is the sides, top scorer, this season and has been an excellent player for the team over the years. He got 16 goals from midfield last season which is outstanding but will look to beat it this time around.

Atalanta Team News

Atalanta have just the one player who looks like he won't be fit for the game is Joao Urbano who is suffering with a meniscus injury. Rafael Toloi is back if training after recovering from his thigh injury, so could be good to go this weekend.
