Atalanta vs Frosinone

Gewiss Stadium forms the backdrop for a lopsided Serie A contest between Atalanta and Frosinone.

Atalanta bounced back from a deficit to beat AC Milan 2-1 in midweek Coppa Italia action and progress into the semi-finals, making it four unbeaten matches on the trot across all competitions (W3, D1). Their longest unbeaten streak since early October prompted Gian Piero Gasperini’s praise of his team, but there’s no time for celebration. With fourth-placed Fiorentina four points off, this is a golden opportunity for ‘La Dea’ to boost their chances of securing a first top-four finish in three years. Bergamo is the best setting to accommodate that goal, with Atalanta winning their last three Serie A home games via a combined score of 8-3. Indeed, Gasperini’s free-flowing attack netted 3+ goals twice during that three-game sequence, highlighting the potential for a high-scoring contest.

Adding to this sentiment, Frosinone’s porous backline was picked apart in the Coppa Italia a few days ago as Juventus thrashed Eusebio Di Francesco’s side 4-0, condemning them to a fourth consecutive defeat in all competitions. Not only are the ‘Canaries’ experiencing their worst winless run in 2023/24, but they’ve conceded an average of three goals per game during this sequence. Despite commencing this round five points clear of the drop zone, improving on the road is imperative for Frosinone to avoid being drawn further into the relegation scrap. The visitors have amassed a league-low two points on their Serie A travels this season (D2, L7). That’s not to mention they’ve lost both previous top-flight visits to Atalanta ‘to nil.’
