Atalanta vs Bologna
Italy – Serie A
Date: Tuesday, 21 July 2020
Kick-off at 18:30 UK/ 19:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia.
La Dea lost a whole lot of momentum in their title race with their two draws in the last three match-days. As of now, they are six points below the toppers, and the Old Lady have a game in hand.
While the Scudetto looks a pipedream this campaign, it’s no reason for the team to stop trying now. In spite of what happens at the conclusion of the season, Gian Piero Gasperini’s men have proved themselves as one of the very best teams in the country.
They need to close out their season in style now – making a statement to the eventual champions (Juventus, most probably) that the Serie A will not be a one-horse-race in 2020-21.
Considering the recent struggles of the Greyhounds, the incredible form of La Dea this season, and the impressive h2h record of Gasperini’s men – expect an Atalanta win this Tuesday.
Atalanta vs Bologna: Head-to-head (h2h)
- La Dea recorded wins in seven of the former eight clashes.
- They had scored two or more goals in seven of the previous eleven encounters.
- They had also kept clean sheets in four of the former eight match-ups.
- At this venue, they are on a five-fixture winning run.
- The latest meeting at this stadium had ended in a 4-1 win for the hosts.
Atalanta vs Bologna: Prediction
Gasperini’s men were held to a 1-1 draw on the road the past game week, by Verona. These two dropped points could cost them a lot in their attempts to catch Juve.
Meanwhile, Sinisa Mihajlovic’s men were defeated 5-1 on the road the past game week, by AC Milan.
At first look itself, it’s clear that La Dea have the upper hand here. They have been the best team in Italy for the past several months, while their counterparts have suffered one of the heaviest defeats of their season just now.
Moreover, the Greyhounds were winless in nine of their last eleven overall games as well.
Going on, Gasperini’s men are on a 17-match unbeaten run at the moment, and of these, 14 were wins. At home, they are on an eight-match winning run.
On top of that, they had won seven of the preceding eight overall h2h games, and are on a five-match winning run at this venue against this rival.
Taking these observations into consideration, expect a thorough Atalanta win this Tuesday.
