Atalanta vs Parma: Prediction
Gian Piero Gasperini’s side bounced back from Bologna disappointment with a massive 5-0 win over AC Milan. The Bergamese put in a complete performance as they produced thirteen goal-scoring opportunities and reduced the Rossoneri to just one shot on target over the 90 minutes.
As a result, they leapfrogged Cagliari on the table and moved to 5th place in the standings, four points off of Roma.
‘La Dea’ have recorded four wins, one draw and three defeats at Ennio Tardini and Gewiss Stadium. Atalanta are one of the most efficient home teams in the competition with 23 goals (2.88 per match), whilst shipping 1.75 per bout.
There are no injuries or suspensions in the team. Duvan Zapata is expected to start off the bench.
After two road wins vs Sampdoria (1-0) and Napoli (2-1), the Gialloblus were eager to beat Brescia and record their third consecutive Serie A win for the first time in five years, but they only managed to rescue a late draw. Nonetheless, the visitors come in good spirits having claimed eight points from last five league outings.
With the W-D-L record of 7-4-6, ‘I Crociati’ are 7th on the ladder, four points behind Sardinians.
Parma have logged three wins, three draws and two losses away from home, netting 1.38 goals per game and conceding 1.25 in return. They’re riding a five-game unbrean run on the road.
Inglese, Caramoh, Cornelius and Gervinho will be evaluated before the match; Riccardo Gagliolo is suspended on yellow card accumulation.
The hosts will be at full-strength on Monday and I’m positive they will claim three points, but odds are way too low, hence the BTTS – Yes next to a home win. The Gialloblu’s are counter-attacking side and I expect them to get on the scoresheet.
Gervinho would be a big miss, but Swedish sensation Dejan Kulusevski will be motivated to hurt his former (since yesterday) club.
Atalanta are the most overish side in the league with an average of 4 goals on their games and I’m going to hit the goals market and pick Over 3 without thinking twice as I have 3-1 hunch here.
