Sampdoria finally won
The Genoese played their previous round match on Friday and managed to outplay La Spezia on their field. By the 36th minute, Roberto D’Aversa side had already scored two goals (an own goal from Gyasi and Antonio Candreva) which effectively decided the match’s outcome. The Eagles only managed one goal in the stoppage time of the second half, 2-1. Sampdoria finally won.
Success against La Spezia broke the series of Genoa’s defeats, which amounted to 4 games (3 defeats and a draw). Sampdoria now have nine points under their belt. The team rose to 15th place in the standings.
Atalanta lose important points
For the Bergamas, it’s not even the home defeat to Udinese that’s troubling as it’s how they lost the points. Thanks to a goal from Ruslan Malinovskiy, Atalanta opened the scoring at the beginning of the second half and could have scored a second goal. However, Atalanta failed to take the lead. A couple of minutes before the final whistle, the Bergamas lost Beto, who headed the ball into Juan Musso’s net. 1-1 - another poor performance by Atalanta this season.
Characteristically, Bergamo conceded the goal after substitute Aleksei Miranchuk came on. The Russian substitute had several times taken to the scoring position in the opposition half but again made the wrong decision, for which he received a lot of criticism at the end of the game. Miranchuk got bored in Bergamo.
Expert Betting Tips
Atalanta themselves gave Udinese a draw in the previous round and will surely do everything possible to recover from that monstrous blunder in Genoa. Frankly, Sampdoria do not appear to be a strong team and are unlikely to be guaranteed points against such a powerful opponent as Atalanta. If the Bergamas approach the match with concentration and responsibility, they should have no problem picking up three points.
The prediction is a win for Atalanta.
