Sampdoria vs Atalanta Prediction & Betting tips
Sampdoria and Atalanta are each others competitors in the fight for European football and have in common that they both have a real goal getter. Quagliarella from Sampdoria has already made nineteen goals and together with Cristiano Ronaldo is on the top scorers list, Zapata has already made sixteen on behalf of Atalanta and is fourth on that list.
Sampdoria lost three times in early February and seemed to lose sight of the European spots. Because it won in the last two rounds and lost both Lazio and Atalanta points, everything is still possible. The team now has two points behind the coveted sixth place.
Two weeks ago, Sampdoria won Cagliari at home with 1-0. Almost all good chances were for La Samp, but the rounding left a lot to be desired. In the end, Quagliarella brought the redemption from the penalty spot in the 66th minute. A week later, the 36-year-old Italian was again the match winner. In the game at SPAL, the experienced striker already scored for the first fifteen minutes to score twice. Sampdoria gave almost no shots on goal but still got the 1-2 in stoppage time.
Fabio Quagliarella has proven himself again, he made his eighteenth and nineteenth goal of the season and needed only 25 games. Last season was his record season with nineteen goals in 35 matches, so that number will undoubtedly surpass him again.
Atalanta did good business in the fight for European football last week. In the away match at Fiorentina for the Coppa Italia it was 3-3, which made it a good advantage in the home match in late April. Still, Bergamo will not be completely satisfied with that match, as Atalanta was already twenty minutes ahead with 0-2 thanks to goals from Gomez and Pasalic, that lead was already given away for rest (2-2). Even after half time, the team took the lead thanks to a great long distance shot from Marten de Roon, again giving it away.
Coach Gasperini will be satisfied with the league game that followed four days later. This time, his team was trailed to an early 0-1 deficit, which was bent to a 2-1 lead before half time. Atalanta controlled most of the game and by far the most chances. The 3-1 of Gosens in the sixtieth minute was the mercy blow, which put Atalanta Fio on five points behind.
