Atalanta vs Sampdoria
Italy – Serie A
Date: Monday, 28 February 2022
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Gewiss Stadium.
Atalanta used to be one of the best teams in the league earlier in the season, and they were even a contender to secure a top-four finish.
But their recent form has been worrying. They are on a long winless run, and they were even downgraded to the fifth position, by former champions Juventus.
At present, the team needs a surplus of three points to climb into the top-four of the table. And it goes without saying that a huge win is the need of the hour for the squad – not just to get back in the top-four race, but to get their confidence back as well.
And in that regards, they have a good opportunity coming up. They are at home this Monday, and are pitted against one of the weakest teams in the Serie A.
Sampdoria have lost plenty of games in the past few weeks, and they have also been conceding in plenty all along. Moreover, they are on a poor streak on the road, and they also have an inferior h2h record against this foe over the years.
For all these reasons, expect a win for Atalanta this Monday at the Gewiss Stadium.

Atalanta vs Sampdoria Prediction & Analysis
Atalanta did lose 1-0 on the road the last match-day in the Serie A, against Fiorentina. But they did follow it up with a 0-3 win on the road against Olympiacos, in their Europa League fixture.
Moreover, their recent loss of form could be attributed to a touch schedule – which included the likes of Inter, Juventus, Roma etc.
On the other hand, Sampdoria had lost six of their last eight games, and they are on a four-fixture losing streak on the road. They had also won just twice away from home in the past five-month period.
Judging these observations, as well as past h2h stats, expect a win for Atalanta this Monday.
