Atalanta have made a reliable start to the new season, and they could move into the Champions League spots with a victory this weekend. However, they face an interesting challenging this weekend against a Fiorentina side looking to get back on track.
Serie A Preview
Atalanta have made a promising start to the new season, as they look to force their way back into the Champions League spots. The Italian side have won two of their opening three matches this term, and a victory this weekend could see them end the round in the top four positions.
They come into this fixture after responding to a defeat in their most recent fixture by landing maximum points against Monza. It was a dominant performance by the Italian side, which saw Gianluca Scamacca scored twice on his home debut for his new side. Ederson also found the back of the net in that win. Atalanta recorded just 41% of the possession in that victory, but they attempted 18 shots overall.
Fiorentina will be the hosts this weekend, as they look to end a two-game winless run. However, there is little doubt that there is quality within this squad, which means it would be little surprise if there is a response this weekend.
The Italian side are in desperate need of a response this weekend, as they were completely outplayed in their most recent fixture against Inter Milan. Fiorentina conceded three times in the second half in that match, as they ended on the wrong side of a 4-0 scoreline. Things don’t get much easier this weekend, but at least they will be playing back in front of their home fans.
Fiorentina vs Atalanta Head to Head
This exact fixture ended in a 1-1 draw last season. However, Fiorentina have won two of their previous four against Atalanta, which includes a 2-1 victory in this exact fixture in September 2021. Atalanta have won just once in their previous three visits to Fiorentina.
Fiorentina vs Atalanta Prediction
This should be an interesting fixture in Serie A this weekend. However, we will be taking a chance on the draw being the result this weekend, just as it was in the previous encounter between the sides in April 2023. A score draw could be a solid bet for this Serie A fixture on Sunday.
