It will be difficult for Atalanta to succeed in two tournaments at once
The Nerazzurri occupy 5th place in the league table of the Italian championship. The gap from the top 4 Juventus is 6 points. This means that Atalanta simply can not allow making mistakes. However, the Bergamo side is unlikely to focus on Serie A and the Europa League at the same time.
Thursday’s meeting with Bayer was quite high-scoring. Atalanta conceded two goals, but responded with three. 3-2 – a draw will now be enough for Gian Piero Gasperini’s team in an away game.
Genoa are short of points
The Griffin have yet to lose under Alexander Blessin. That said, Genoa has not won in six games under the German coach. Six draws in a row – the Genoese approach the game with Atalanta with such an interesting streak.
Last round, Genoa enjoyed an enormous advantage in the home game against Empoli, but failed to score: the match ended 0-0. Despite nearly 20 shots on goal by Genoa.
- Atalanta: Josip Ilicic, Bryan Cabezas, Duvan Zapata will not play;
- Genoa: Domenico Criscito will not play. Aleksander Buksa, Zinho Vanheusden, Andrea Cambiaso, Andrea Masiello, Czyborra, Roberto Piccoli, Caleb Ekuban are questionable.
The first-round match of the current championship held in Genoa ended in a 0-0 draw. At the time, Andriy Shevchenko led the Griffin.Watch Free Live Stream
