Atalanta is going through its best moment in this edition of the Italian league, since, although it has maintained an imbecility of five days previously, it had not conquered so many victories as in this new period of invincibility. Now, he is motivated by a great victory away from home, against Milan, in a game in which he had a great performance, despite having finished less than half the time of the opponent, showing much opportunism. As it was possible to perceive in that confrontation, it stands out for the good defensive performance, since it has one of the eight best defenses of the competition. Playing at home, he owns the sixth best campaign and in that condition just did not score in a game. It is likely that the coach will organize the team in a 3-4-2-1 or 3-4-1-2, with a highlight for Cristante in the offensive sector.
After 5 wins, 2 draws and 11 losses, the away team is currently in the 16 th position of the league, with 17 points won. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against Roma, by (1-0). In the last match, they lost in a home match against Fiorentina, by (0-1). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 2 wins, 3 draws and 10 losses in away matches; against 6 wins, 2 draws and 7 losses at their stadium. In the last 9 away league matches Cagliari has a record of 2 wins, 1 draw and 6 losses, so they have won 7 points out of 27 possible. They have not been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 9 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 18 matches in this competition, they only won 1 comeback in the 12 matches where they suffered the first goal.
The Cagliari is still living a very complicated situation within the Italian league, considering that he does not win five days ago and now comes from two consecutive defeats, without having scored any goal in that period. The last defeat occurred at home, against Fiorentina, in a match in which he missed many passes and finished only eight times, suffering the goal of defeat already in the final part of the game. The offensive performance in that match confirms what the team has been presenting throughout the competition, since it failed to score zero in seven games and now has the fifth worst attack in the league. Another problem of the team has been the lack of quality in the change of passes, an issue in which it has the fourth worst average in the league. As a visitor, he wasted twenty of the twenty-seven points he played so far. In this match, the coach will not have at his disposal midfielder Pedro, who is serving a suspension.
