Atalanta vs Bologna Prediction & Betting tips
With another six games to go, the season is slow at the end. However, for Atalanta there is still enough to play for. The team is heading for a Europa League ticket. Bologna, on the other hand, can increase some places, but not much more to win. Does the team team like to win at Atalanta, or do you want the return for the duel earlier this season?
Who thought Atalanta would stand fifth in 32 rounds would be foolish. Nothing could be further from the truth. The team of Gian Piero Gasperini has already scored 60 points and can win a brilliant season with a Europa League place. For that reason, Lazio Roma, AC Milan and Inter have three teams involved. Lazio now has fourth place with 61 points while Milan and Inter have 58 and 56 points respectively. So the fight is still not fought, but it looks good for the stable Atalanta.
Once this season it went downhill. That was a visit a week ago at Inter. It lost by as much as 7-1. One of the splendid defeats after the winter break. Only in January there was a lost visit to Lazio Roma. Of the remaining twelve matches eight were won. Even in Naples, it won well with 0-2 and last weekend, the weather was astonishing. This time Atalanta played 1-1 with a visit to AS Roma.
What matters to the team is that there are a lot of players who are able to make goals. Alejandro Gomez is the top scorer with fourteen hits. Incidentally, he already has seven assists. The attacking midfielder was against Roma but is invaluable. There are more players who each contribute. It provides a team that is extremely difficult to beat, especially at home.
Probable setup Atalanta
Berisha, Toloi, Caldara, Mashello, Conti, Kessie, Freuler, Kurtic, Grassi, Petagna, Gomez
After a good first season in which Bologna was in a good spot in the middle, the team’s turn in 2017 is a lot less. The team of Roberto Donadoni has dropped to fifth place. The difference to the bottom is big enough with fourteen points and so the visibility can rise. With Udinese, Chievo, Cagliari and Sassuolo all within reach, there is still a lot to be gained. The question is, however, whether the team is capable of it. As mentioned, after the winter break, Bologna does not play football. The four victories in 2017 here are illustrative enough.
What strikes is that the team is hard to score. Match twelve goals in fifteen games. If one wins then that is a small difference. However, it will bring a lot of hits where the 1-7 defeat to Naples was of course a huge outcry. Now they know a lot of absenteeism due to injuries and suspensions, but the problem of difficult scores lasts longer. The result is now that Bologna has fallen down to the bottom of the big middle ground. The good thing is that there is no need to worry about degradation, but one will be determined to gather some points.
Probable setup Bologna
Mirante, Torosidis, Maietta, Gastaldello, Masina, Taider, Viviani, Dzemaili, Verdi, Destro, Di Francesco
