In the 19th round of the Italian Serie A, the outsider SPAL goes to Bergamo to play a match against Atalanta. January 20, 2020, 2:45 PM ET, Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia, Bergamo, Italy.
Predictions and Tips
- MoneyLine Pick: Atalanta Will Win.
- Over Under Pick: The Total Will Go Over 3.5.
Atalanta debuted this season in the group stage of the Champions League, which had a certain impact on the performance of the Gian Piero Gasperini team in the first round of Series A. It was only after The Black and Blues had resolved their issues in Europe’s most prestigious club tournament that they really got involved in the national championship and managed to make it to the top four.
However, fourth place I Nerazzurri is under serious threat – Roma is catching up with her from behind, with only additional indicators. There is also Milan with Napoli, who can improve the game and join the fight, but this scenario seems unlikely so far. During the week Atalanta lost 1:2 to Fiorentina in the Italian Cup, leaving the tournament.
Last season the SPAL impressed with its game in Serie A and had no problems keeping a residence permit in the elite, but the current season for the team Leonardo Semplici is going very unsuccessfully. So far, the I Biancazzurri are in last place in the table, with only 12 points. There is a three-point gap from the saving place, which is not critical.
However, the team’s form leaves much to be desired – a 2:1 victory over Torino, which, contrary to all forecasts, in the 17th matchday did not bring the SPAL to its senses. The next two games of the championship were lost to Verona (0:2) and Fiorentina (0:1), and last week they were added to the loss 0:3 from Milan in the Cup of the country.
