Atalanta vs Torino
Italy Serie A
Date: Saturday, 6 February 2021
Kick-Off at 14.00 UK
Venue: Gewiss Stadium, Bergamo.
La Dea dropped out of the top-six in the Serie A standings after a disappointing 1-3 home loss to Lazio last weekend. They will be looking to return to winning ways on Saturday when they take on Torino.
Fatigue may play a big role for Gianpiero Gasperini and his men who have been constantly playing in a tough Saturday-Wednesday rhythm over the last several weeks. They faced Napoli in the first leg of the Coppa Italia semi-final on Wednesday evening, just three days before this tie against the relegation-threatened Torino.
The visitors should generally not have much to hope for ahead of the trip to Bergamo, especially if we know how bad they have been throughout the season.
Nevertheless, they might take advantage of Atalanta’s tough schedule to come up with an unexpected upset. After all, they have the ability of causing troubles to any team in the division on their day.
Atalanta vs Torino Head-to-head
- Atalanta have been scoring goals for fun in the most recent head to head encounters with Il Toro.
- La Dea bagged as many as 11 goals in the last two meetings with Torino. They celebrated a 2-4 victory when the two teams met each other in the first part of the season, back in late-September last year.
- Five or more goals were scored in each of the last three head to head outings.
Atalanta vs Torino Prediction
This match has goals in it. Although the visitors did find goals hard to come by of late, they still have one of the weakest defensive records in the entire competition. Their back line looked incapable of keeping La Dea at bay in the last couple of head to head affairs. Although Atalanta lack consistency in this term of Serie A, they still boast the league’s second-best attacking record.
Despite the potential fatigue issues, we believe that Gasperini has enough depth in his squad and we will back the hosts to return on winning track here. Atalanta are in need for points to get back in the battle for the top-four finish at the end of the season. The home win in a high-scoring contest is the way to go here. We see the value in the 2.05 odds offered for Atalanta to have the lead at the half time and win the match at the end.
