Atalanta vs Sampdoria
Italian Serie A.
Date: Sunday, 4 March 2018

It’s been a disappointing past week or so for Atalanta, who were dumped out of the Europa League and then the Coppa Italia. In between those two games, they also lost to Juventus, and now they have to re-focus to try to clinch a sixth placed spot.

Of course, Sampdoria, who occupy that sixth position, won’t be so keen on giving that up easily. They have AC Milan trying to force them out of the way, but at least have a more comfortable margin over eighth-placed Atalanta. However, Samp’s high position in the table is due to their home form. On the road, they’ve been absolutely poor, to say the least.

Indeed, they have won just two games in their travels so far, and obviously will need to improve on that in order to make sure they stay in the top six. This weekend is set to be an interesting one as all of the top sides battling for a European spot are actually going head to head, with Lazio taking on Juventus, Napoli locking horns with Roma and of course, the Derby della Madonnina featuring none other than Milan and Inter.

Having drawn their last two Serie A games and overall winless in their last five across all comps, Atalanta will want to take advantage of Samp’s less than strong away form and get back on track quickly here to close some of that gap between themselves and Milan, who could drop points as they face a tough test against Inter.

Atalanta vs Sampdoria: Head-to-head statistics

  • Atalanta have only lost two of their last 12 league fixtures (W6 D4) on home turf
  • Sampdoria have picked up 44 points so far this season – their best tally after 26 match-days in Serie A in the three-point per win era (since 1994/95)

Atalanta vs Sampdoria: Prediction

Sampdoria’s strong showings overall have been thanks to the renaissance of veteran striker Fabio Quagliarella, who has netted a very impressive 17 times already this term. However, Atalanta have been quite strong at home, with just two losses at the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia, and that should not be discounted.
