Frosinone vs Atalanta
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 20 January 2019
Kick-Off at 11:30 UK / 12:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Benito Stirpe (Frosinone).
Atalanta began the year with a comfortable 0-2 victory over Cagliari in Monday’s Coppa Italia tie. They will have a nice chance to get off to the best possible start of the year when it comes to domestic league as well on Sunday when they travel to Stadio Benito Stirpe to take on one of the weakest teams in the elite class of Italian football.
Frosinone are struggling badly in this term of Serie A. They sit second from bottom after 19 rounds and are the only team in the division without a single victory in front of the home crowd this season. They scored only six goals during a streak of five draws and four defeats in nine home matches. Canarini will have a very tough task to end such negative thread in the first league outing of 2019 against in-form Atalanta side.
Frosinone vs Atalanta: Head-to-head
The head to head record also favours Atalanta who won three and drew two of five meetings with Canarini.
Interestingly, Frosinone have never managed to score a single goal in H2H matches with Atalanta (0-7 goal difference in these five ties).
La Deal clinched a demolishing 4-0 victory when teams locked horns in this term of Serie A at Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia.
Frosinone vs Atalanta: Prediction
Frosinone have the weakest attacking record in the entire division and we just can’t see imagine them casing any trouble sin the final third against Atalanta here. La Dea bagged six goals in their previous league match against Sassuolo, just a week after they kept runaway leaders Juventus to a 2-2 draw in front of the home crowd.
Gianpiero Gasperini’s men are just four points away from 4th-placed Lazio and they have prospects of challenging the Champions League football next season. We expect them to confirm the favourites tag without any problems on Sunday as the away win is one of the biggest bankers of the weekend.
