Serie A – Atalanta-Genoa
Atalanta are currently 6th in the Serie A with 55 points. They have one point advantage in front of Milan, so they would want to keep this position. If Atalanta manage to do it, they will repeat their performance from the last season, when they finished in the Top 6 and qualified for Europa League.
Atalanta’s record so far shows 15 wins, 10 draws and 9 losses. In their last five games Gian Piero Gasperini’s boys won twice, made two draws and suffered one defeat against Sampdoria. Right now Atalanta are enjoying a run of two consecutive wins, achieved against Benevento and Torino.
Atalanta are one of the most solid teams in Italy at this moment and they are proving it with their efforts in the last two season. They deserve to qualify for Europe once again and they have big chances to do it.
Genoa on the other hand are 11th in the Serie A with 41 points. In the beginning of the season Genoa had some serious problems, but after that they successfully stabilized their performances and guaranteed their safety.
Right now Genoa have a record of 11 wins, 8 draws and 15 defeats in the league. In their last five games the Griffons won three times, made one draw and suffered only one defeat – against Roma at the Stadio Olimpico.
Atalanta are favourites here, of course. They are stronger and they are playing at home, fighting for a Top 6 finish in the league. But don’t underrestimate Genoa, becuase they have certain qualities to show. For the home team it could be a difficult game, don’t make a mistake about this.
