Torino vs Atalanta
Italian Serie A
Date: 29 April 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino (Turin).

Atalanta joined the battle for the top four finish with a strong display and a 3-1 victory over direct rivals Roma on Monday night.

Mario Pasalic, Rafael Toloi, and Teun Koopmeiners were on target for Gianpiero Gasperini’s squad who are now just four points below AC Milan in fourth place.

Atalanta will be hoping to back up the mentioned victory on Saturday evening when they visit Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino for the Matchday No 32 game against mid-table Torino.

Nevertheless, it will be easier said than done given the hosts will also enter the outing in high spirits after a big 0-1 victory over second-placed Lazio seven days ago.

The Balkans connection worked well for Il Toro as Nikola Vlasic assisted to Ivan Ilic for the only goal in the capital last weekend.

The team led by Ivan Juric thus returned to winning ways after four consecutive winless affairs in the league.

It is also worth noting that Torino continued with their low-scoring games last weekend, making it four successive league fixtures with fewer than three goals scored on the occasion.

Torino vs Atalanta Head-to-head

  • Atalanta have dominated this matchup in the last several years, winning four and drawing two of the previous six meetings with Il Toro.
  • La Dea celebrated a 3-1 victory in the return game played in September last year at Gewiss Stadium.
  • We have seen at least four goals in six of the previous seven head to head matches between the two counterparts.

Torino vs Atalanta Prediction

Atalanta dominated this matchup in recent years, scoring at least three goals in six of the previous seven meetings with Il Toro. They will face hard times trying to maintain such a scintillating attacking level this time around as Torino’s back line looks as solid as ever under Ivan Juric.

We trust the hosts to keep this a low-scoring contest and we will thus go for the Under 2.5 goals FT pick at the 1.72 odds. Alternatively, we are very much tempted by the 3.30 odds offered for the draw as well as the 6.50 odds for the 1-1 correct score pick.

Torino vs Atalanta Betting Tips

  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.72 (8/11)
  • Correct Score: Draw 1-1 @ 6.50 (11/2) odd.
