Atalanta form and stats

2-1-2 (win-draw-lost) are the Serie A numbers at home for Atalanta so far this season.

Atalanta travelled for their previous game, a trip to Juventus that ended 1-1. Before that, Atalanta had a home game versus Fiorentina which ended with a victory 3-0.

The Atalanta goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini was crucial in the match against Juventus last time out, making six saves.

This is expected to be a close game, with Atalanta perhaps considered small favourites due to their home advantage. Looking back at earlier matches similar to this one (expected to be close with Atalanta as a small favourite), we find three games. Atalanta has won one of these, drawn zero and lost two.

Atalanta are traveling soon after this match as the Serie A match at Bologna awaits in three days.

With an average of more than two goals per home game in the league (10 in 5 games), Atalanta's attacking play is working. With more than 1,5 conceded goals on average, the Atalanta defense is not exactly impregnable. 8 goals conceded from 5 games. You can find more goal stats on the Statistics tab above.
