Fiorentina vs Atalanta: Prediction and Betting Tips
Fiorentina still in need of points
La Viola are close to safety but they are still not completely secure with nine matches still to be played. Having 30 points, Fiorentina are eight points above 18th placed Cagliari and still have to play teams like Juventus, Napoli, and Lazio at home who are all in better positions but Giusseppe Iachini’s team hauled 66% of their points here and that might be a confidence booster.
With just one win in the last six matches and losing their last two home games, Fiorentina will play against one of the league’s best teams Atalanta who have the third-best away record in the league. Conceding ten goals in five matches isn’t a good defensive record for La Viola but they returned that with 11 goals scored which can give coach Iachini some relief.
Atalanta aiming for the best possible finish
With 68 goals scored in Serie A this season, Atalanta are the joint top-scoring team in the league. They have won seven of their last eight matches and are closing up for second place in a relentless fashion. La Dea are having a great season and a top-four finish is the least of their ambitions.
Coach Gian Pieri Gasperini must be very content with his attackers who have scored 15 goals in five matches. Defensively as well La Dea have done well recently conceding five goals in five matches. In their last match, Atalanta beat Udinese 3-2. It was the first time in six matches that they have conceded two goals in 90 minutes.
- Both teams have scored in Fiorentina’s last five games
- Fiorentina have scored in their last four home games
- Atalanta have scored in the last three of four away games
- Six of the seven last H2H matches have seen both teams score
Fiorentina vs Atalanta Prediction
With the players they have in their squad, Fiorentina feel they should do much better in Serie A. they have been struggling in the lower part of the table all season and the Violas will look for a win here to climb more to safety.
Atalanta on the other hand are having one of their best seasons in Serie A and a second-place finish is in reach given they keep on winning their upcoming matches.
Looking at their stats, both of these teams have been scoring regularly in recent matches in the presence of some prolific attacking players like Dusan Vlahovic for Fiorentina, and Luis Muriel and Duvan Zapata for Atalanta. We think we will see goals at both ends.
