Atalanta vs Torino
Italian Serie A
Date: Thursday, 6 January 2021
Kick-off at 15:30 UK/ 16:30 CET
Venue: Gewiss Stadium (Bergamo).
Atalanta resume the chase of Serie A title when they welcome Torino on Thursday.
The year 2021 didn’t end well for the La Dea as they were surprisingly held to a goal-less draw by Genoa before got hammered by Roma by a 4-1 margin.
After dropping points in back-to-back games, Atalanta were pushed to fourth in the standings with Inter pulling 8 points clear at the top of the table.
Torino are 11th in the standings, and they earn almost of their points at home turf. They finished the year with a 0-1 loss at Inter Milan leaving them with just 2 points wins in 7 away games.
Scoring goals on the road is another massive problem for the team coached by Ivan Juric. They are at the foot of the table in that aspect with 3 goals from overall 9 played this season.
Atalanta vs Torino Head-to-head
- The La Dea are unbeaten in the last 4 head-to-head meetings against Torino with 3 wins and 1 draw.
- Strange enough, all those three victories happened away from home and Torino managed to beat Atalanta once and drew in two of the recent three visits here.
- Both teams have scored in 3 of the last 4 with over 2.5 goals registered in all four of them.
Atalanta vs Torino Prediction
The hosts look good for a convincing win here, with Torino offering no resistance in away games so far this season. Moreover, Gian Piero Gasperini will be highly motivated to do the same after failing to defeat the El Toro in recent three home duels.
We have seen high scoring affairs in their recent h2h meetings, a total of 27 were netted in the last 5 alone. Therefore, we can do little wrong by backing the home win with over 2.5 goals combo.
To sum up, both teams to score in the game is a bet for brave punters since Atalanta kept 2 clean sheets at home this season.
