Atalanta vs Sampdoria
Italian Serie A
Date: Tuesday, 3rd April 2018
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia (Bergamo).
Both Atalanta and Sampdoria are contesting for a place in the Europa League next season and are currently outside the top six of the table.
The La Dea are 7th in the table, 3 points behind 6th place AC Milan, while the visitors are 9th on the log, 3 points adrift of their Tuesday’s host.
Atalanta are coming on the back of a decent run after picking 3 wins of the last four, while they were defeated at Juventus. Also, the defeat at Turin is their only one in last 8 Serie A games.
Sampdoria are on a disastrous run having lost in each of their last 3 games. Some of those defeats came at a huge margin, 5-0 at home to Inter Milan and 4-1 away at Crotone. Furthermore, their away record is poor and managed just 3 wins all season. They did manage a surprise 1-0 win at Roma in January, which remains to be their only away win since November 2017. Also, 5 of their last 6 away games resulted in defeats.
Atalanta vs Sampdoria: Head-to-head
Sampdoria are the better side in h2h with 4 wins from their last 6 meetings, drew 1 and lost 1.
Four of their last 6 h2h meetings saw both teams scoring.
Sampdoria also won 3-1 when the teams met earlier this season.
However, Atalanta have lost just once during their last 5 home game against Blucerchiati, won 3 and drew 1.
Atalanta vs Sampdoria: Prediction
Atalanta go into this game as clear favourites on the back of momentum generated from back-to-back wins and some sterile performances at their home ground this season. Sampdoria had often got the better of the La Dea in previous seasons, but on current form, they will easily fall short at the Atleti Azzurri on Tuesday evening.
