Soccer Italy Serie A Prediction
Atalanta vs Verona - Match Preview
⚽ 20 May 2023 - 16:00 GMT +0
Atalanta’s 1-0 defeat to Salernitana last weekend marked the first time this season that they lost consecutive Serie A (SA) matches without scoring, but more importantly, it was a result that pushed them out of the top six. Getting back into the European spots is an immediate priority with coach Gian Piero Gasperini declaring that La Dea will “have to go back to being motivated.”
With two of their remaining three games to be played at home, Atalanta will hope their passionate supporters can help turn the tide. The hosts have chalked up six wins across their last ten competitive games at the Gewiss Stadium (D1, L3) but have conceded 2+ goals in nine of their last 13 home matches, which raises questions over their ability to end their quest for a clean sheet.
The reverse fixture ended 1-0 in Atalanta’s favour, but relegation-threatened Verona will travel in the knowledge that the away team on the day had won the last five H2Hs. And they’ll hope that continues here as Marco Zaffaroni’s side start this round in the bottom three due to an inferior H2H record against Spezia after a 1-0 defeat to Torino last matchday made it two losses across their last three (W1).
A growing injury list threatens to dampen their chances but there are signs that Verona will be stubborn on their travels, picking up five points from three recent trips (W1, D2) which included a credible goalless draw against Napoli. Having landed their first away victory of the season on their last awayday, the Gialloblù can now post consecutive away league wins for the first time since last April, a run that included a 2-1 win here!
📋 Players to watch: Atalanta fans won’t mind waiting for a Rasmus Højlund goal as four of the striker’s last five league goals have come in wins, three of which served as their last goal of the match. Milan Đurić could be all-action for Verona with four involvements (A2, YC2) across his four personal league H2Hs.
⚡ Hot stat: Atalanta has kept a first-half clean sheet in nine of their last 11 league games, while Verona has failed to score a first-half goal in 12 of their last 13 matches.
