Atalanta vs Fiorentina – Serie A.
Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia, Bergamo – 21 February, 14:00.
Match Preview and Betting Tips.
Stunning 2 – 1 victory against Inter Milan in the stoppage time was great for Fiorentina. Sousa’s squad will be looking to extend their series of good results. They could also potentially threaten Juventus and Napoli. They won’t have an easy task this Sunday as they travel to Bergamo to face Atalanta. One downside for Fiorentina is that they are probably exhausted after playing such two strong matches, against Inter and Tottenham Hotspur on Thursday. I imagine that effected the odds on away victory. Fiorentina to win is currently backed up with 11/10 odds, which is really tempting betting option. They are undefeated for last 5 matches in Serie A. For them, every point is crucial in their fight for UEFA Champions League qualifiers.
Atalanta will be probably looking for some sort of revenge. Devastating 3 – 0 loss suffered to Fiorentina happened in the first part of season. Josip Ilicic and Borja Valero were off the radar for Atalanta’s defense, as they both scored really nice goals. Atalanta fans are probably happy to see their team on safe middle table position. Chances to see them in Serie B next year are minimal. Considering the fact they haven’t won any out of their last ten matches, their 13th position is more than solid.
Majority of football experts were claiming its just matter of time to see Fiorentina slip on Serie A table. Despite that, team just keeps winning. Sensational 2 – 1 victory against Inter Milan allowed them to jump over Roma and grab 3rd position on the table. Head manager Paulo Sousa can be proud of his players and their performances, especially forwards. Nikola Kalinic and Josip Ilicic are playing season of their lives, scoring 21 goal so far combined.
