Atalanta vs Spezia
Italian Serie A
Date: 3 May 2023, Wednesday
Kick-off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Gewiss Stadium (Bergamo).

Atalanta made another huge step towards the top-four finish on Saturday evening when they survived a late Torino scare to get away with a three-pointer from Piedmont.

Duvan Zapata found the late winner to give his La Dea a massive result that keeps the team in contention for the Champions League football next season.

Gianpiero Gasperini’s men are still seventh in the league table but they are only two points below Inter Milan in fourth place and they will be looking to extend the positive streak on Wednesday evening in the home fixture against relegation-threatened Spezia.

We have to praise Davide Zappacosta in particular as the left wing back offered a great performance on Saturday night in Turin, contributing to his team’s win with a goal and an assist.

Atalanta have claimed a maximum of six points from the last two tough games against Roma and Torino and they are big favorites in mid-week’s tie with Spezia for a good reason.

The visitors enter this in completely opposite spirits. They are winless in six subsequent games in the league and they are currently lock on points with Verona in the red zone.

Head coach Leonardo Semplici has huge problems with the lack of efficiency in his team’s attacking line as Spezia bagged just one goal in the previous three league affairs.

The visitors will go into this off the back of a disappointing 0-2 defeat at the hands of Monza on Friday evening.

Atalanta vs Spezia Head-to-head

  • Atalanta have four wins and two draws in six head to head encounters with Spezia.
  • La Dea claimed two separate 5-2 wins over Spezia in the previous two head to head games between these rivals in Bergamo.
  • Atalanta bagged seven goals in two H2H clashes with Spezia this season, a run that includes a 5-2 win in the last 16 round of Coppa Italia in January this year.

Atalanta vs Spezia Prediction

Everything points towards a comprehensive home win here and we can hardly back anything other than Atalanta’s win by at least two goals difference at the odds of 2.05

Since Spezia own the second-worst attacking record in the league, we will alternatively take the 2.00 odds for Atalanta to keep a clean sheet on Wednesday.

Atalanta vs Spezia Betting Tips
