Verona vs Atalanta
Italy – Serie A
Date: Saturday, 18 July 2020
Kick-off at 16:15 UK/ 17:15 CET
Venue: Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi.
La Dea have once again reaffirmed their stature as the current best team in Italy. While defending champions Juventus continued with their unimpressive run, Gian Piero Gasperini’s men have been slowly chipping away at their lead.
As of now, they are seven points behind the toppers, and have five games remaining to catch up. While the lead might seem insurmountable, that’s no reason to give up. This breath of new life was exactly what the Serie A wanted.
Even if La Dea fall short this season, they will be sending a strong statement to the Old Lady that the 2020-21 campaign will be going to be an extremely interesting one.
Considering the incredible form of Gasperini’s men, their recent h2h domination, and the struggles of the Mastiffs – expect Atalanta to continue their incredible run with another win this weekend.

Verona vs Atalanta: Prediction
Ivan Juric’s men lost 2-1 on the road the last match-day, against Roma. In the meanwhile, La Dea registered a massive 6-2 win at home the past game week, against Brescia. After their unlucky draw against Juventus, it was important for the team to make a comeback, and they did it in style.
By all means the favorites for the day are Gasperini’s men. They are on a 16-match unbeaten run, and of these 14 were wins. They have also established themselves as the best offensive team in the whole of Europe – the team had scored two or more goals in 15 of their last 16 games.
In fact, they had scored a total of 57 goals from their previous 16 games. They are also on a three-game winning run against this rival, and have scored a total of 11 goals in the process.
On the other hand, their counterparts are on a four-fixture winless run, and remained so in eight of their past ten games as well. Moreover, their chances to make it into the European zone are next to nothing.
Taking into account these observations, expect another huge win by Atalanta this Saturday.
