Atalanta is welcoming Udinese to Gewiss Stadium in round 9 of the Italian Serie A. Atalanta has been improving, they are solid in Serie A, but they dropped a 0-2 lead against United in the Champions League earlier this week. Udinese has had a solid start to the season, but they are now without a win in their last 5 games.

Atalanta is in 6th place in the Serie A table with 14 points, 14 scored goals, and 10 conceded goals, and they really need to increase their offensive output. The good news is Atalanta has scored in 6 of their first 7 Serie A games, and they are also scoring a lot in the Champions League. Earlier this week against Manchester United, Atalanta has had 44% of all possession, 6 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and 79% of the correct passes. After a brilliant first half, Atalanta was leading 0-2, but United switched gears in the second half, and Atalanta just couldn’t stop them. Atalanta ended up losing this game 3-2. Zapata is the leading goalscorer for Atalanta with 4 goals, while Pasalic added 3 assists. Hateboer, Pessina, Djimsiti, Gosens, and Toloi are all injured, and these are all players that would probably be in the starting lineup. Atalanta is playing 3 games in the next 6 days, and they will need all the depth they can get, but I think they are good enough as is to get some points over this streak.

Udinese has had a great start, but they are now sinking deeper and deeper. Thanks to their bad streak over the last month and a half, Udinese has dropped to 13th place, and they have scored only 4 goals in their last 5 games. Beto, Pereyra, and Deulofeu have each scored 2 goals for Udinese so far this season. while Deulofeu also added 2 assists. Pereyra is suspended because of the yellow cards. Udinese was playing against Bologna in their last game, and they have had 41% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and 80% of the correct passes. Maybe if Udinese hasn’t conceded a red card in the first half, they would have gotten a win here, but I think they can be pretty lucky with a 1-1 draw. even though Udinese is going through the slump right now, they are a good team with some great players, and I think they won’t have any problems securing their Serie A status this season.

When playing at home, Atalanta hasn’t lost to Udinese in their last 4 games, and they are in better form here. Udinese is on a bad streak, they will be missing one of their best players in this game, and I think they will lose.
