Atalanta is welcoming Torino to Gewiss Stadium in round 21 in the Italian Serie A.
After being undefeated for 14 games in a row, Atalanta has lost to Lazio in their last Serie A game, while tying a game against Napoli in Coppa Italia earlier this week. In their game against Lazio, Atalanta was the home team, and they have had 57% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and 79% of the correct passes. Despite having a good game, Atalanta wasn’t focused on the defensive end, and they ended up losing this match 1-3. With this loss, Atalanta has dropped in the standings, and they are now in 7th place with 36 points, but still within the Champions League reach. Atalanta has scored 45 goals so far this season, and Muriel has scored 11 of those 45, while Zapata added 8 goals. Ilicic added 6 assists. Sutalo is the only injured player at this time, while Hateboer is still questionable for this match. Atalanta will be facing Real Madrid in the Champions League in a few weeks, but before that Atalanta must face Napoli twice, which will be 2 hard games.
Torino is struggling massively this season, and they are in low 17th place with only 15 points, and they are on the brink of the relegation zone. Torino is a decent team, but they need changes, starting from the coaching position. Torino was facing Fiorentina at home in their last game, and they were the better team in this game thanks to Fiorentina conceding 2 red cards. Torino has had 51% of ball possession in this game, 3 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and a decent 81% of the correct passes. Despite having 2 extra players on the field, Torino was losing until the 88th minute when Belotti was able to tie the score. The final result of this match was 1-1. With this goal, Belotti has 10 scored goals in total so far this season, and he is Torino’s leading goalscorer. Belotti also added 5 assists. Sanabria is the only injured player for Torino, while Vojvoda is still questionable for this game. Torino is showing some signs of life as of late, and they have 3 draws in their last 3 games, but they will need to do a lot better if they want to stay away from the relegation zone.
Torino hasn’t won any of their last 6 games, while Atalanta hasn’t won their last 2 home games against Torino, and their last 2 games overall. There is no question which team is better here, but both teams need a win to get into better form, but because Atalanta is the home team, and they are the better team, I will side with Atalanta at home in this game.
