Competition: Serie A
Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 4/5 @ 888sport
In a matchup that could see chances come thick and fast this weekend, Atalanta will host relegation scrappers Genoa on Sunday evening.
Starting with the hosts, continuing on what has been an extended purple patch either side of the festive break, the mood in Atalanta’s camp should be at a real high. In their 16 Serie A matchups so far this season, they have recorded nine wins, four draws and three defeats, scoring 40 and conceding 22 in return. Along with opening this weekend’s fixtures sat with a points tally of 31 and just two points adrift of breaking back into the Champions League spots, it should also be noted that Atalanta hold the second-best attacking tally in the division. As for their recent run of results, claiming a 3-1 win against Cagliari on Coppa Italia duties in midweek, Sunday’s hosts are in the midst of a four-match winning run across all formats. While they might have bagged themselves 15 strikes on their recent purple patch, it is worth highlighting that six of their last seven appearances have finished with both teams finding the net.
As for the visitors, while Genoa might have put in a hugely impressive performance away at Juventus in midweek, they did see their Coppa Italia run come to an end. In their 17 Serie A matchups so far this season, they have recorded just three wins, five draws and nine defeats, scoring 18 and conceding 30 in return. Opening up this weekend’s fixtures with just a points tally of 14, they also hold just a two-point buffer from dropping into the relegation zone. As for their recent run of results, suffering a penalties defeat away at the Allianz in midweek following a dramatic 2-2 draw, Genoa have managed to win just a pair of their last 16 Serie A contests. However, also holding a reputation for their high-scoring matchups, it should be noted that three of their last four away contests have seen both teams find the net.
