There is a mouth watering game in prospect in Serie A on Monday, as one of the in-form sides in the league will looking to maintain their excellent run of momentum when they welcome Atalanta.
Serie A Preview
Fiorentina has been in excellent form since the action in Italy resumed following the World Cup. They currently sit in ninth, and have won four of their last five matches. A victory this weekend could lift them up to eighth, and within four points of Atalanta in the top six.
The Italian side’s form in recent weeks has been excellent, as they have gone seven without loss. They haven’t gone eighth without a defeat since April 2018. Momentum was built in midweek too, as they claimed a huge first leg advantage in the Europa Conference League. However, Fiorentina has struggled after sides sitting above them in the standings this season, as they have managed to pick up just nine from a possible 41.
The pressure continues to mount on Atalanta, as their place in the top six is coming under increasing danger. They could kick off on Monday with just a one point advantage over Juventus, and consistency has been a huge issue for them throughout the campaign. That has been evident over their last five, as they have won just twice and lost twice.
Away from home, Atalanta has really struggled this season, as they have failed to score in three of their last five matches. That is as many games as they failed to score in over their previous 17 in Serie A. They will need to get back to winning ways quickly if they are to hold on to their spot in the top six.
Fiorentina vs Atalanta Head to Head
Atalanta has landed victories in five of their previous eight matches against Fiorentina in Serie A. However, the home side managed to record a victory in their previous home match against Atalanta. But, they haven’t won two on the bounce against their rivals on Monday since 2015.
Fiorentina vs Atalanta Prediction
This is a tricky game to call in Italy on Monday evening, as both sides have a desperate need for the points. However, with Fiorentina already essentially through to the next round of the Europa Conference League after a big win on Thursday, we could see them claiming maximum points at home.
