Atalanta welcome the visitors Chievo in the Italian Serie A – Round 28. The match will be held on Sunday, March, 17th, at the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia (Bergamo).
The hosting Atalanta, placed sixth in the table, fight hard for Europa League spots and still have chances to reach the Champions League zone (the gap is 6 points). The Bergamo outfit are chased by 3 rivals – Torino, Lazio, and Sampdoria – who lag only 1-5 points behind. Therefore, the hosts on the day cannot afford dropping points against the main relegation candidate Chievo. Notably, Atalanta are among the most effective Serie A sides – they made 56 goals, only Juventus did more. In 5 previous rounds, the team registered 2 defeats and 3 wins. The players are motivated by the European fight and boast a great form. Duvan Zapata, Atalanta’s top striker who made 17 goals, and Alejandro Gomez, who netted 6 goals and made 7 assists, are extremely bright. Thus, Atalanta are doing very good these days.

Unlike the hosts, Chievo struggle a lot. They did not manage to find their playing style and are ready to leave the elite division. The Verona side are hardly scoring – they made 20 goals, which is the league’s worst record, – and very leaky – they missed 53 goals (not inspiring ahead of the trip to one of the most scoring teams). Chievo are unlikely to oppose their hosts anyhow, they will probably take a hammering at Atalanta’s hands.
The Bergamo team, blistering in the attack, are by all means favorites in the match concerned. We’re betting on the hosts’ win with a -1.5 handicap: given the guests’ leaky defense, Atalanta will easily manage this handicap, and it is not quite clear if Chievo are able to score tomorrow. They are very messy in the attack, and their thumping is very possible.
Prediction for the match: Atalanta to win with a -1.5 handicap.
