Spezia has yet to secure a place in the elite
In the course of the 2021/22 championship, Thiago Motta's team has already done a lot in order to keep their place in Serie A for the next season. However, the task has not yet been accomplished. The Eagles approach the match against Atalanta sitting 16th in the standings, ahead of the relegation zone by only 4 points lost. There are still three rounds until the end of the championship, with 9 points at stake, so there is still a chance to leave the top division.
Last round, Spezia was close to getting the points, only to give up a home draw with Lazio. The Eagles took the lead three times, each time they let their opponents get back into the game and in the 90th minute they forgot Francesco Acerbi in the penalty area. 3-4, as Spezia suffered their third straight defeat.
Atalanta might not qualify for European competitions
Before round 36 starts, Gian Piero Gasperini's team sits eighth in the standings, that is, out of the European competitions zone. Atalanta is on a par with Fiorentina, which occupies the 7th line and right now is in the Conference League zone. No. 5 and 6, Roma and Lazio respectively, qualifying for the Europa League, are 3 points ahead of the Black and Blues.
The previous round saw Atalanta fail to handle the championship outsider Salernitana. 1-1, as Gli Orobici were trailing halfway through the first half and only managed to escape from the defeat in the 88th minute thanks to Mario Pasalic's goal. Atalanta has only one win in their last 5 Serie A matches.
In the first round of the current championship, Atalanta defeated Spezia 5-2.
Expert Betting Tips
Atalanta has essentially flunked this season. Gian Piero Gasperini's team not only failed to take a step forward in their development but also rolled back strongly. Getting to the international stage might brighten up the situation a bit.
Atlanta plays much better away than at home in the current league, being the third team in Serie A on the road stats. So the Nerazzurri have an excellent chance to win in La Spezia. There is no retreat – any other loss of points and they'll have to kiss the European competitions zone goodbye. Spezia has a margin before the relegation zone, and even with the team losing to Atalanta and all direct competitors winning, there's still a chance to stay above it.
Prediction: Atalanta will win a crucial match.
