Benevento vs Atalanta
Italy Serie A
Date: Saturday, 9 January 2021
Kick-Off at 14.00 UK
Venue: Stadio Ciro Vigorito, Benevento.
Benevento are slowly turning into the most pleasant surprise package in Italy this season. No wonder this squad has demolished all Serie B opponents in the last campaign and secured promotion very early. After 16 rounds they have won 21 points from 16 games among the elite, and the recent run of results has been fantastic.
The Witches welcome Atalanta this weekend, hoping for another upset. Squad from Bergamo also has been on fire lately, managing to beat Sassuolo and Parma quite convincingly in 2021. Still, they are way behind leading duo AC Milan and Internazionale. As expected, visitors are the favorites here at 1/2 rate.
Benevento vs Atalanta Head-to-head
There were only two head to head meetings between these two sides, happening in season 2017/2018 when Benevento were among the elite.
Atalanta were victorious in both occasions, winning those matches 3-0 and 1-0.
Benevento vs Atalanta Prediction
Squad from Ciro Vigorito has visited Sardinia last weekend and faced Cagliari. Start of the game didn’t go well, as they conceded an early goal. The complete turnaround and comeback happened in the last minutes of first half when Marco Sau and Alessandro Tuia scored for Benevento. That turned out to be the final result.
That victory was third for Witches in the last four Serie A games. Previously they defeated Udinese and Genoa. The current stats at this stadium are two wins, two draws and four defeats.
As for their opponents, Atalanta are very hard team to beat when playing on the road. They have won three out of seven appearances away, including three draws and one defeat. Gian Piero Gasperini’s team is undefeated in the last eight games, and we believe their streak is going to continue. Besides away win, we are also backing a lot of goals.
