Fiorentina vs Atalanta Prediction & Tips
Midweek round of the Italian Cup and Fiorentina host Atalanta at the Artemio Franchi Stadium. The two teams have returned from a positive weekend with the Viola who have finally returned to success thanks to the 1-0 home win against Spal signed German Pezzella. For Iachini’s team it is the third seasonal commitment (all at home) in the cup after those won against Moza 3-1 and Cittadella 2-0, when the team was still Vincenzo Montella’s. Gasperini’s Atalanta is instead making his seasonal debut in a competition that touched on losing the final against Lazio in the past season and has returned from 1-1 at Inter with Robin Gosens’s goal and a wrong penalty (and one not given) that could have given her success. Viola without the disqualified Venuti and the injured Boateng, Nerazzurri with the entire staff available at the time of writing. Chance in Fiorentina should have Boateng and Vlahovic as well as Badelj, while in Atalanta a new found Zapata can attack the legs in attack.
In 6 of the last 7 direct matches both teams have scored.
Atalanta have been unbeaten against Fiorentina for 4 games, in which the Viola have always conceded goals.
Atalanta has remained unbeaten in 7 of the last 8 official matches of all competitions.
Fiorentina have scored only one goal per game in the last 5 official matches.
We are aiming for the passage of the Atalanta round. Gasperini’s team really plays football and also in Milan with Inter Milan has shown it. In a possible turn-over there is Zapata who paws and usually his goals can be “heavy”.
