Atalanta will be looking to get back on track in Serie A this week, as they were beaten for the second time in three fixtures. They will come up against Lecce on Wednesday evening, who have failed to win in their previous five fixtures in the Italian top-flight.
Serie A Preview
This looks set to be a big game for Atalanta in Serie A this week, as the Italian side has lost two of their previous three fixtures. They have already lost pace on the teams at the top of the standings, which means that they will need a victory to stay in the Champions League places in the Serie A standings.
However, their form has been slightly worrying in recent weeks, as they have picked up just two wins from their previous five fixtures. During that run, they have lost twice in three, and have also been held to one draw. In their previous fixture, Atalanta were beaten at home by Napoli, which allowed their rivals to widen the gap at the top of the standings. The only Atalanta goal in that defeat was scored by Ademola Lookman.
Lecce come into this fixture sitting just above the relegation places in the standings, as they have won just once in 13 Serie A fixtures this season. They are currently three points away from the drop zone, which means that they will need to start recording wins sooner rather than later if they are to remain in the division.
Lecce battled well in their previous fixture in Serie A, as they played out a 1-1 draw against Udinese. Lecce went ahead in that fixture through Lorenzo Colombo, but they were pegged back with just over 20 minutes remaining.
Lecce vs Atalanta Head to Head
Atalanta is unbeaten in their previous six fixtures against Lecce, winning on three occasions and being held to three draws. Meanwhile, the visitors this week have won three of the previous four, which includes wins in the last two, scoring a total of ten goals across the two fixtures.
Lecce vs Atalanta Prediction
Atalanta’s record in this fixture is extremely hard to look past, which means that the smart money looks to be on the visiting side. Therefore, we could see Atalanta getting back on track with a 2-0 victory on the road.
