Bologna vs Atalanta: Prediction
Just as we predicted, Bologna played out an entertaining match against AC Milan, but ended up empty-handed. The Rossoneri were 2-0 and 3-1 up, Nicola Sensone only managed to soften the defeat with his fourth goal of the season.
After failing to build on the win over Napoli, the Veltri, currently 12th on the ladder with 16pts to their name, will be looking to snap their embarrassing seven-game losing streak against Bergamese this weekend.
Bologna have two wins, two draws and three losses in their own backyard with 11:12 goal difference, scoring 1.57 goals per game and conceding 1.71.
Soriano, Dijks, Krejci are on the sidelines for the hosts.
Atalanta will travel to Emilia-Romagna capital full of confidence after a massive 3-0 win in Ukraine that clinched their qualification to the KO phase of the UEFA Champions League. Despite losing first three games in the group, ‘La Dea’ never gave up and made history.
Currently riding a four-game winning streak across competitions, the Bergamo-based team could make their way into the Top 4 with a victory on Sunday.
The Bergamese are boasting unbeaten record away from home in Serie A with five wins and three draws to date, netting an impressive 2.38 goals per bout, whilst conceding 1.13.
Duvan Zatapa is still out with an injury, Ilicic is doubtful.
I’d say we’re in for another goal-fest at Renato Dall’Ara – the hosts have been involved in high-scoring matches against quality teams at this venue (1-2 vs Roma, 2-2 vs Lazio, 1-2 vs Inter and 2-3 against AC Milan). Only the Nerazzurri are bagging more goals per game on the road than La Dea.
In order to win, Atalanta has to score at least two goals as I’m confident that Bologna, unlike Shakhtar the other day, will found the back of the net – they have scored in each of their home games this season and 86% of their games at this venue had over 2.5 goals and BTTS – Yes.
With a 2-3, 2-4 hunch, I’m hitting goals market.
