Genoa vs Atalanta
Italy – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 15 September 2019
Kick-off at 11:30 UK / 12:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris.
With a win and a draw to their name, Genoa are currently 5th in the standings. ‘I Rossoblu’ showed an incredible team spirit when they fought back three times against Roma in the opener, then proceeded to win their first game of the season against Fiorentina (2-1) at Stadio Luigi Ferraris.
The match against Viola had it all; 34 shots combined, three shots against the post, a penalty and loads of goal-scoring opportunities. We should see a similar game on Sunday, when ‘La Dea’ pay them a visit.
We’ve seen another comeback in Atalanta match, only this time Bergamo Goddess was left empty-handed when Torino came back to sneak a 3-2 win.
Atalanta was a better team throughout the match, but Pierluigi Gollini on goal and the back three ahead of him had an off day. Everything will be forgotten if they bounce back quickly, though, and Genoa is next on their list.

Genoa vs Atalanta: Prediction
Both teams are playing exciting, attacking football and we should see plently of chances on both ends and, ultimately, goals in big numbers.
It feels like Genoa are trying to emulate Atalanta in a way, and there is nothing wrong with that. This style of play clearly works for their youngsters up front, Kouame and Pinamonti who scored three of Genoa’s five goals to date.
Atalanta’s goal machine Duvan Zapata scored two against Torino and matched Luis Muriel’s tally. The latter is projected to start off the bench, but Zapata with Papu Gomez behind should be enough for out bets here.
Genoa vs Atalanta: Bet Tips
Over 2.5 goals and Both Teams to Score – Yes @ 1.83
Over 3.5 goals @ 2.60
