Atalanta – Fiorentina Match Prediction | 23-09-2019 12:00

The Viola, on the other hand, did remarkably well to hold reigning champions Juventus to a goalless draw at the weekend, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the trip to Bergamo. Atalanta will be aiming to build on a 2-1 win over Genoa when they face Fiorentina in Bergamo on Matchday 4. The Orobici head into the match following the Champions League clash against Dinamo Zagreb, meaning that tired legs could prove to be a big problem for the home side.

Their success wasnt short-lived, and since the beginning of the new season, they are showing that they mean business. Atalanta, also know as Nerazzurri in Italy recorded some amazing results in the previous season, and managed to finish it in the 3rd place. Moreover, in each of their last 5 matches, we saw over 2.5 goals, so I believe that this time it wont be much different. Currently, they are placed 5th in the standings with 6 points from 2 victories and 1 loss. Although they were recently defeated by Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League group stage, they are looking forward to clashing with a weaker opponent so they can restore their confidence and grab some points.

Atalanta have been scoring goals for fun in the Italian top flight at the start of the season and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Fiorentina. Considering that the visitors should have a number of opportunities to find the net on the break, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw.

They will be hoping to build on that draw, but face another incredibly tough task on Sunday evening. That point came in a draw last weekend against the mighty Juventus, and while that was an impressive result for them, they still havent done enough this season. Fiorentina have been very disappointing and sit just one from the bottom of the table, with only one point to their name.

Atalanta vs Fiorentina Score Prediction

Atalanta have netted 77 goals last season, more than any other team, and theyre averaging 2.33 goals scored per game this year. Theyre an attacking side with two guys who scored three goals each. Le Dea should be worried about defence, though, as they have allowed ten goals across competitions. Im sure Zagreb defeat wont change their game plan, not now, nor ever.

Shutting down Atalanta will be no easy task and getting a positive result here will be crucial, especially at such a time for the rivals. Viola have proven their great form in the final third once again and with 13 goals scored in their last four home outings, Stefano Piolis attacking approach has been fruitful and promises another great challenge on Wednesday.

We think Atalanta have the upper hand here, they come into the game playing well and they can show that form once again to bag another victory. Goals look set to feature again too, they like to score and will get opportunities but do look a little vulnerable at the back. With that in mind we are also going to back both teams to score in this one.

A game that involves two teams having a very different start to the season. There is probably only a little between these two teams in terms of ability, but a huge gap in terms of how they are playing right now. Atalanta are up towards the top of the table, they have two wins from three games, with a five goal thriller their only defeat so far, that came against Torino.

Currently Fiorentina is playing his home games in the Stadio Artemio Franchi in Florence which can accommodate 47282 supporters. The stadium was build in 1931 by Pier Luigi Nervi. In 1996 he was rewarded as the best player in club history. One of the most important players in that season was the Brazilian Juninho. The first Scudetto (name for the Serie A title) was in 1955/1956. De first prize ever won by Fiorentina was the CoppaItalia in the season of 1939/1940. AC Fiorentina was founded on 29th of August in 1926 after a fusion between Libertas and CS Firenze.

Atalanta vs Fiorentina Predictions & Match Preview

There are no injuries or suspensions in the squad. Defeat like that surely casts a shadow over otherwise decent league start with two wins (SPAL 3-2, Genoa 2-1) and a loss (Torino 1-2). Atalanta are back in their comfort zone and set to host Fiorentina on Sunday. The match will be played in Parma as their Gewiss Stadium is under renovation.

Fiorentina, commonly known as the Purples didnt start this years campaign very well. In the most recent 5 matches in all competitions, they recorded 2 wins, 2 losses and 1 draw, while scoring 8 goals and conceding 7. Good thing for them was an unsuspected drawn match they played against Juventus, in which the reigning champions just couldnt make it through their defence and score, so that could help them be a bit more confident in this match. In fact, they are still winless, and thats why they are currently sitting at the bottom of the table in 19th place, with 1 point and 4:6 goal difference.
