Atalanta vs Brescia
Italy – Serie A
Date: Tuesday, 14 July 2020
Kick-off at 20:45 UK/ 21:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia.
La Dea are furiously going after a top-two spot, and if possible, even for the title. They should have made major inroads in that regards the last match-day, as they took on defending champions Juventus – only for two dubious penalty decisions to go against them.
However, they are pitted against a relegation-battler this Tuesday – Diego Lopez’s men. Not only is this squad placed in the bottom tier of the table, but they are massively inexperienced too – as they had gained promotion just the past summer.
On top of that, Gian Piero Gasperini’s men have a great h2h record against this rival over the years, and especially so at this venue. By the looks of things, expect a dominant Atalanta win this Tuesday.
Atalanta vs Brescia: Head-to-head (h2h)
- La Dea won the reverse fixture with a 0-3 scoreline on the road.
- They are also unbeaten against this opponent since 2005.
- Also, not once have they conceded a goal in the past fifteen years.
- It’s been 23 years since the guests have won at this stadium.
- The home team have kept clean sheets in every encounter since 2000.
Atalanta vs Brescia: Prediction
Gasperini’s men were held to a 2-2 draw on the road the last match-day, by Juventus. Keeping true to their style, the guests had flown to a flying start, and constantly unleashed problems at the back for Maurizio Sarri’s men.
However, twice the referee pointed to the spot for the Old Lady, and both penalties were converted. Meanwhile, Lopez’s men lost 0-3 on the road the past game week, against Roma.
As things stand, Le Dea have the advantage. They have been the best team in the competition at the moment, and are desperate to make the most of this form to earn them a top-two finish.
They are on a 15-game unbeaten run, of which 13 were wins, and are on a seven-fixture winning run at home. They had also scored a total of 23 goals in these seven match-ups.
On the other hand, Lopez’s men are one of the worst of this whole league, and are also inexperienced in the top flight. They were also winless in 17 of their preceding 18 overall games, and had lost seven of their former eight road trips.
Moreover, they have also failed to make any kind of an impact in h2h fixtures over the years, and especially so at this venue. Taking into account these observations, expect a strong winning performance from Atalanta.
