Atalanta vs Genoa
Italian Serie A
Date: Saturday, 11 May 2019
Kick-Off 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia (Bergamo).
Two teams with completely opposite ambitions will raise curtain on Matchday No 36 in Italian Serie A on Saturday afternoon at Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia.
Atalanta made a huge step towards the Champions League football with a huge 1-3 victory over Lazio last weekend away at Stadio Olimpico.
It was the fourth win on the bounce for La Dea across competitions. They bagged two or more goals in each of victories in the process.
The head coach Gianpiero Gasperini can thus be really proud of the job he has done with this team so far in the season.
Atalanta sit fourth in the league ladder and are three points clear off heavyweights Milan and Roma. They will also feature Coppa Italia final against Lazio later this month.
Can La Dea continue the fairy-tale with the fourth successive win on Saturday afternoon against relegation-threatened Genoa?
Atalanta vs Genoa: Head-to-head
Atalanta were on a run of five consecutive wins over I Rossoblu before losing this term’s clash 3-1 away at Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris.
Three or more goals were scored in each of last six head to head encounters between the two sides.
La Dea won 8, drew 2 and lost 4 of 14 home clashes against Genoa.
Atalanta vs Genoa: Prediction
The visitors were not pulling up any trees in the last couple of months and they go into this as clear form underdogs. The lost four and drew three of past seven league affairs, a streak which dropped them down into the relegation scrap.
Genoa are just four points above the red zone line with just three games left to play. They did hold the likes of Roma to a 1-1 draw last weekend thanks to Cristian Romero’s 91st-minute equalizer. However, we just can’t see Cesare Prandelli’s men causing any troubles to the free-scoring Atalanta side here.
I Rossoblu won 2, drew 5 and lost 10 of 17 away fixtures. Knowing that each of past six H2H matches between these two sides saw three or more goals scored, Atalanta’s victory in a high-scoring contest has to be the way to go here.
