Atalanta vs Torino Date and Time: Saturday, February 6, 2021 2PM (UK Time) Venue: Gewiss Stadium, Bergamo Prediction: Atalanta Bookmaker: 1xbet
Atalanta dropped out of the top six in the Serie A standings after a disappointing 1-3 home loss to Lazio last weekend. They will be looking to return to winning ways on Saturday when they take on Torino. Fatigue may play a big role for Gianpiero Gasperini and his men who have been constantly playing in a tough Saturday-Wednesday rhythm over the last several weeks. They faced Napoli in the first leg of the Coppa Italia semi-final on Wednesday evening, just three days before this tie against the relegation-threatened Torino.
The visitors should not have much to hope for ahead of the trip to Bergamo, especially if we know how bad they have been throughout the season. Nevertheless, they might take advantage of Atalanta’s tough schedule to come up with an unexpected upset. After all, they have the ability to cause trouble to any team in the division on their day.
This match has goals in it. Although the visitors did find goals hard to come by of late, they still have one of the weakest defensive records in the entire competition. Their backline looked incapable of keeping La Dea at bay in the last couple of head to head affairs. Although Atalanta lacks consistency in this term of Serie A, they still boast the league’s second-best attacking record.
Despite the potential fatigue issues, we believe that Gasperini has enough depth in his squad and we will back the hosts to return on a winning track here. Atalanta is in need of points to get back in the battle for the top-four finish at the end of the season. The home win in a high-scoring contest is the way to go here. This match was Atalanta’s victory.
