Spezia vs Atalanta
Italy Serie A
Date: Saturday, 21 November 2020
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Orogel Stadium Dino Manuzzi, Cesena.

Even though the initial odds were against them, Spezia are on a good path to avoid relegation from the elite division this season.

So far this squad from Cesena collected eight points from seven games, sitting comfortably in the middle of the table.

They secured the first victory in Serie A just before the international break by beating Benevento on the road.

The next opponent is going to be much bigger bite though. Atalanta are visiting Dino Manuzzi Stadium on Saturday and anything but the away win would be a surprise really.

At the moment La Dea are priced at low 1.44 odds to take all three points.

Spezia vs Atalanta Head-to-head

This is going to be the first head to head game between Spezia and Atalanta. This doesn’t come as a big surprise considering the fact that home team is having their premiere appearance in Serie A.

Spezia vs Atalanta Prediction

Spezia are not a team that parks the bus against top tier teams. Even though losses to AC Milan and Juventus were devastating 0-3 and 1-4, coach Vincenzo Italiano still insists on aggressive approach.

October duels against Fiorentina and Parma were extremely entertaining to watch, both ending with 2-2 draw.

Against Viola, Spezia have made a huge comeback after being two goals down thanks to goals of Verde and Diego Farias. On the other hand, they wasted two goals advantage against Parma. The MVP of most recent win against Benevento was 24-years old French striker Mbala Zola who scored twice.

Atalanta are having the same troubles as last year. They are unable to compete on a very high level on two fronts. UEFA Champions League matches are a distraction for Gian Piero Gasperini’s squad.

La Dea have spent a lot of time in 2nd position on Serie A table this season, but October’s back to back losses to Napoli and Sampdoria have pushed them down to 6th place. The gap from AC Milan is still only four points though.

They are also the highest scoring team in the league with 18 goals. Over 3.5 goals is going to be our primary suggestion here considering how Spezia love to play.

Spezia vs Atalanta Bet Tips

  • Over 3.5 goals @ 1.90
