Marco Baroni's team started the championship with two wins - over Empoli (1:0) and Roma (2:1). But so far, these are the only victories of Verona in the new Serie A. In other matches, they failed - to Sassuolo 1:3 and sealed a 0:0 with Bologna in a game where the opponent was much closer to success. Verona could not earn points at the San Siro in the previous round against Milan - 0:1.
Like Baroni's former team, Lecce, Verona is weak in attack. Regarding expected goals at the end of five rounds, the Yellows and Blues sit ahead only of the undisputed championship outsider, Empoli.
In the match against Cagliari, Bergamasca had no problems to gain three points. They controlled the game, keeping their opponents off the scoreboard and sending a goal in each half. 2:0 - Lookman and Paschalic scored.
The win over the Sardinians was Atalanta's second in a row. Before that, in the middle of last week, they coped (2:0) with Raków in the Europa League. However, Atalanta has only been successful at home this season. Away, the team has only one win - over Sassuolo (2:0) and two defeats - from Frosinone (1:2) and Fiorentina (2:3).
Expert Betting Tips
Verona is struggling to score goals. They had the only match in the five first rounds when they scored more than once. That was the second-round meeting against Roma, where Verona did not even get one goal. Atalanta has long since moved away from the ultra-attacking style with high pressing and has become more balanced. Out of six matches in the new season, Bergamasca has not conceded in four.
Likely, Gian Piero Gasperini's team will not allow their opponents to shoot much, again considering Verona's difficulties in offense. Accordingly, we'll be backing a low-scoring affair and Atalanta to pick up points. Verona hasn't shown anything remarkable so far, and the H2H statistics in recent years could be better.
