La Dea sit in 16th place, whilst their opponents sit in 8th. However, Samp, who have earned 11 points, have won just one of their three away games. That was a 5-0 win of Frosinone, but that is something hardly to write home about because the Canarini are only playing in Serie A for the second time in their history, and so far they have not won a game all season. They lost 1-0 to Udinese and could not beat Cagliari, firing blanks in a scoreless stalemate. And last season they were embarrassed on the road, losing to debutants Benevento, so perhaps this could present a good chance for Atalanta to turn things around.

However, the hosts are winless in their last six games. After cruising to a 4-0 win over Frosinone, things haven’t gone as planned. They have earned just six points from their first seven games and crashed out of the Europa League play-offs, a disappointing return after working so hard last season to finish high in the table.

Samp’s defensive record shouldn’t be ignored, though – they have done quite well and having conceded just four times, they actually have the strongest defense in the league – even better than Juventus. Atalanta have scored nine goals so far, but failed to find the back of the net against Fiorentina, and could find it tough if their opponents manage to succeed in their defensive objectives in Bergamo on Sunday afternoon.

Atalanta vs Sampdoria: Prediction

Sampdoria are ranked much higher in the table coming into this clash, but their dodgy away form can’t be discounted. Although Atalanta come into this game having lost 2-0 to Fiorentina, Samp have failed to score in five of their last seven away games.

However, Gregoire Defrel has been in great form, with five goals so far and Samp’s defense has impressed, so the visitors just may be able to banish some of their poor away performances with at least a point here.
