Atalanta vs Fiorentina Prediction & Match Preview

Atalanta vs Fiorentina
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 13 December 2020
Kick-Off at 14.00 UK
Venue: Gewiss Stadium, Bergamo.

After a lot of drama, Atalanta have once again claimed a spot in UEFA Champions League playoffs! Can La Dea cause more upsets in most elite European football competition like they did in the previous season? For now, they will return to domestic obligations and focus on Sunday’s clash against Fiorentina in Serie A, which is also super-important.

Team has slipped to 9th position after collecting only five points from the last five clashes. Home losses to Sampdoria and Hellas Verona were quite unexpected, and are probably a toll from playing on two fronts. Fiorentina are one of the biggest disappointments of this new campaign, sitting just one position above the relegation zone with nine points. As expected, hosts are favorites for the win at 1.66 rate. Viola have zero victories achieved on the road so far.

The latest rumours claim that Josip Ilicic and Papu Gomez are not supporting Gian Piero Gasperini and his ideology. Could this be the moment of breaking for La Dea and their great performances in the last 12 months? Results on domestic scene have been very poor, as mentioned above. The only victory achieved in the last six weeks was against last-placed Crotone. Luis Muriel is the most valuable player so far with four goals and two assists. Atalanta’s score at home has to improve if they want to be in active race for top 4 positions. At the moment the stats are one victory, one draw and two losses.

Fiorentina barely got away with a draw against Genoa last Monday with Milenkovic scoring the equalizer in 96th minute. They collected only two points from the last five Serie A games, and we don’t think Viola will avoid another loss in Bergamo.

  • Atalanta to win @ 1.66
