Fiorentina lost 0:4 to Inter in the previous round. Will Vincenzo Italiano's team be able to rehabilitate for this failure in the home game against Atalanta?Claim Your Welcome Bonus!
The team started the league season after a battle with Rapid Wien in the Conference League qualification. Fiorentina beat the Austrians but lost points in the championship. In the first round, Fiorentina crushed away to Genoa (4:1) but then failed to beat Lecce at home (2:2) and lost to Inter at the Giuseppe Meazza (0:4). Fiorentina can hardly be satisfied with four points after three rounds. Still, the team accomplished the main goal of the season's first stage by qualifying for the group stage of the European Cup. Fiorentina will face Belgian Genk, Serbian club Cukaricki, and Hungarian Ferencvaros in the Conference League group.
Bergamaschi will also have to start in European competitions - Atalanta will be joined in the Europa League group by Polish Raków, Austrian Sturm, and Portuguese Sporting. But the team, unlike Atalanta, avoided the qualifying rounds to fully concentrate on the national championship at the beginning of the season. However, it didn't help Atalanta much, although they did pick up six points. In the first round, Bergamaski could break the resistance of Sassuolo (2:0) only at the end. In the second round, they lost away to Frosinone (1:2). And only in the third round Atalanta finally played a solid quality match, beating a tough Monza 3:0.
Expert Betting Tips
Fiorentina and Atalanta are two teams that play combination football and pay a lot of attention to offense. So it's not surprising that matches between the Bergamaschi and Florentines often feature a lot of goals. Here, we will bet on goals, although we should not expect a very efficient match either - after all, the organization of the teams of Italiano and Gasperini is not limited to the attack. It is possible that, as in the previous face-to-face match, the rivals will exchange goals.
