Atalanta vs Fiorentina
Italy – Serie A
Date: Saturday, 11 September 2021
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Gewiss Stadium.
Atalanta are one of the best teams in the Italian top flight, and they also are unbeaten so far this campaign. In the meantime, Fiorentina are going through a dull stretch of performances – especially on the road, and also have a poor h2h record against this foe over the years.
Likely, expect a win for the former this weekend at the Gewiss Stadium.
The last season, Atalanta had secured a third-place finish, and were unbeaten in 32 of their total 38 league games. And through the stretch, they had also scored a total of 90 goals, which was the best offensive effort by any team in the Serie A.
With Juve undergoing rebuilding, and Inter having bid goodbye to some of their major personnel, this is an opportunity for Atalanta to go after the title.
In the meantime, Fiorentina had finished 13th in the table in 2020-21, and they had remained winless in 29 of their 38 matches. And in the process, they had let in a total of 59 goals as well.
Going on, they also have a worrying h2h record against this rival over the years.
As such, expect a win for the hosts Atalanta this Saturday.

Atalanta vs Fiorentina Prediction
Atalanta had recorded a 0-0 draw the last match-day against Bologna. In the meantime, Fiorentina had won 2-1 at home against Torino.
Going on, Atalanta were unbeaten in 15 of their preceding 19 overall matches, and they had remained so in 21 of their past 25 appearances at this venue. Moreover, they also have a dominant h2h record against this rival, and especially so at this ground in the past five years.
On the other hand, their counterparts have won just thrice on the road since September of 2020, and they had failed to score in two of their last three away games.
Considering these observations, expect a win for Atalanta this Saturday at the Gewiss Stadium.
