Atalanta vs Torino
Italy – Serie A
Date: Thursday, 1 September 2022
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Gewiss Stadium.
Both Atalanta and Torino have been counted amongst the best teams in Italian top flight in the past few years. However, both had missed out on a ticket to one of the European competitions the last season.
As such it goes without saying that the prime objective of both squads this time around will be to secure at least a top-seven finish.
Atalanta will have experienced the grief of the miss more as they finished eighth in the table and had a deficit of just three points below the seventh-placed squad.
One thing that also deserves special mention is their goal-scoring prowess. In fact, they had scored just four goals fewer than reigning champions AC Milan in the previous edition of the Serie A.
Meanwhile Torino had finished 10th in the table and they needed a surplus of just 12 points more to climb level with the seventh placed team.
Anyhow both teams have been unbeaten so far in this current tournament and as a result have built considerable momentum as well.
In fact, both teams are level on points with toppers Napoli and have 100 percentage winning records respectively, disregarding just a single draw.
Moreover, majority of previous head-to-head clashes have had goals in huge numbers and taking into account all these observations it is expected that we are about to witness a high-scoring affair this Thursday.
