Lecce vs Atalanta Match Preview
This is one of many games in Serie A this weekend that will affect both the top and bottom of the table. Atalanta are pushing for another year of Champions League football and are currently in the top four, but there are teams chasing them from behind. Lecce are safe, for now, but are just three points above the relegation zone, a bad weekend could see them drop into the relegation zone which would be a big blow for them.
Atalanta play a very open style of football and have a lot of attacking options, which has played a part in them becoming the top scorers in Serie A with 63 goals, which is just over 2.5 per game. They’ve scored 13 from their last four games, so are showing no signs of slowing down any time soon.
Lecce are going to have to try their best to defend against that, and to make things worse they were very poor defensively last weekend, losing 4-0 against Roma. Another performance like that will only result in one thing and that is a big win for Atalanta with a lot of goals scored.
That won’t be good news for Lecce, but it is exactly what we think will happen here, we really fancy Atalanta to record another big win against the struggling side.
For our main bet on the game we are backing Atalanta -2 on the handicap line, we see them winning this one comfortably. For our second bet we are backing Atalanta to win both halves, with a dominant performance in the process.
