Atalanta vs Fiorentina Match Preview
Just days after a thriller 3-3 Coppa Italia draw, the rivals meet again as Atalanta host Fiorentina for their Matchday 26 clash in an exciting chase for the top 6 – looking to end their three-match winless streak after Serie A losses to Milan (1-3 at this ground) and Torino (2-0 on the road).
La Dea have struggled to bounce back from the disappointing loss to Rossoneri but we’ve seen an inspired outfit at Artemio Franchi, which promises them in a great mood despite being denied an advantage as the rivals came back from behind twice.
Fiorentina have indeed enjoyed a great spell in the final third and such a thriller was nothing strange on their end, as they built on a great 1-4 win over SPAL and a 3-3 draw against Inter. They sit just two points behind Atalanta on the league table and an upset here would prove crucial in their battle for the top 6.
Viola haven’t suffered a loss since late December and connected a ten-match unbeaten streak across competitions, with three wins and two draws earned on five trips. They’ve been regularly scoring numbers of goals and attacking line led by Federico Chiesa will surely be motivated to cope at Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia.
We do hope to see a thriller but we’ll back Atalanta to turn it their way, going for a Home win at 19/20 with bet365 in hope Gianpiero Gasperini’s men can build on the positives and prove their character here once again!
We’ve seen both sides enjoy great clashes with goals lately and we also hope for more of the same, also going for Over 2.5 Goals FT at 7/10 with William Hill! Both have enjoyed an attacking approach and saw three or more goals in three of their last four outings, which makes this feel like a generous pick at this point.
