Two sides with contrasting destinies go head-to-head at the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia this weekend as in-form Atalanta take on relegation fighters Genoa.
Sitting fourth in the table with a three-point lead over fifth-placed AC Milan and with three Serie A fixtures left to go, the hosts seem to be on their way of securing their first-ever Champions League promotion. Unbeaten in their last 12 outings across all competitions (W8, D4), La Dea enter this round after clinching three straight SA wins. Notably, all eight of Atalanta’s last competitive triumphs have seen them score 2+ match goals, even though they were leading at halftime only twice in that period. Furthermore, Gian Piero Gasperini’s men have won both of their previous H2Hs with Genoa at this venue, scoring precisely three goals in each. Another encouraging fact for Gli Orobici is that they’ve conceded just two goals in their last five SA games, as they last allowed over 1.5 SA match goals against Torino back in February.
Meanwhile, the visitors are frantically looking over their shoulders as they sit four points above 18th-placed Empoli after failing to secure a league win in seven straight SA fixtures (D3, L4) since mid-March. Interestingly, all three of Genoa’s draws in that period have ended with the same 1-1 scoreline, while Cesare Prandelli’s men struggled to find the net in all four defeats. Additionally, I Rossoblu have returned just 30.56% of their total SA points (36) on the road (11), picking up only one triumph on eight SA road trips in 2019 (W1, D4, L3). Also, for Il Grifone, goals have been in short supply in their last seven SA away clashes, as all of them have featured under 2.5 goals.
