Atalanta vs Verona
Italian Serie A – Season 2017/18
Date: Wednesday, 25th October 2017
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia (Bergamo).
Atalanta had a mini slip in the middle, but they must have got back the confidence with the 1-0 win against Bologna on the weekend. The team was win-less in the previous three with 2 draws and a defeat.
Yet, the home form is brilliant with the team picking up 2 wins and a draw from 4 games so far. They lost to Roma in matchday 1 which is their only home defeat in 16 home games.
Verona are coming on the back of a 3-2 defeat in the derby against Chievo. The team is left with 1 win from their 9 matches so far and pressure is mounting on head-coach Fabio Pecchia.
The newly promoted Verona’s defense has been all over the places and so far let in 19 goals. The team managed to score 6 goals in the process, however 4 of those came in their last 2 away games.
Atalanta vs Verona: Head-to-head
Interesting enough that Verona are unbeaten in the last six meetings with Atalanta, 4 wins and 2 draws.
Atalanta’s last two home matches against Verona are draws.
Verona scored in 4 of the last 5 visits to Atalanta.
Atalanta vs Verona: Prediction
Atalanta have become one of the toughest teams to beat at home. They are unbeaten in the last 6 at the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia with 5 wins and a draw. The only team that managed a point here is Juventus.
Verona are in a bad shape and despite having a good record against Atalanta. Their away record this season is particularly poor and sloppy defending adds to further the woes. They are expected to pose little threat to the fiery hosts.
Atalanta vs Verona: Bet Tips
FT – Atalanta -1.5 Asian Handicap for 2.05.
Over 2.5 goals for 1.70 odd seems like a handy alternate.
