Atalanta vs Sampdoria
Italian Serie A
Date: 28 January 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Gewiss Stadium (Bergamo).
Atalanta played a crazy 3-3 thriller in a spectacular stalemate against Juventus last Sunday at Allianz Stadium.
La Dea thus continued with their extraordinary attacking performances, netting at least three goals in third consecutive match in all competitions.
As a matter of fact, we have seen at least six goals in each of the previous three outings Atalanta played across competitions.
Gianpiero Gasperini’s men are firing on all cylinders these days. They bagged 16 goals in the previous three outings. They have notched two or more goals in all five matches since the World Cup break.
The former Leicester striker Ademola Lookman has been one of the main catalysts for the team’s recent attacking successes.
The Nigerian forward bagged two goals in each of the last three games. He will have a nice opportunity to extend his brilliant spell of form on Saturday evening when La Dea play host to Sampdoria in Gameweek No 20 in Serie A.
Sampdoria are second from bottom in the league table. They will have a mountain to climb to prevent the drop to Serie B football next season.
Le Samp have been struggling to score goals ever since the beginning of the season. They own by far the weakest attacking record in the elite class of Italian football.
The team led by Dejan Stankovic failed to find the back of the net in any of the previous four matches in all competitions. The run includes the 0-1 home defeat to Udinese six days ago.
Atalanta vs Sampdoria Head-to-head
- On top of form, Atalanta have tradition on their side because they won each of the last four encounters against Le Samp.
- La Dea bagged at least two goals in each of the previous four wins over Sampdoria.
- A win for the hosts here would make the H2H record all tied at 20 wins apiece in the 45th meeting.
