Atalanta hosts Lecce in round 7 of Italian Serie A. The match will be played on Sunday, October 6th at Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia (Bergamo)
The team from Bergamo settled in third place of Serie A after six rounds played, and only Inter and Juventus are ahead. As in the last season, Atalanta is achieving the result due to the excellent combination game in the attack. Atalanta has already scored 15 goals in six games. Only Napoli has the same result. The team is unlikely to be prepared physically for the match with Lecce because there was a duel against Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League in the middle of the week. The match was very difficult, and the Italian team lost at the very end of the game after a quick counterattack of the Miners, which ended with a goal of Solomon (1-2)

Lecce confidently won Serie B and now the team will try to gain a foothold in the Italian football elite, where it had a permanent place once. Lecce held the first official match of this season in the Italian Cup, having managed to deal with Salernitana confidently - 4:0. But the first match in Serie A showed that this tournament has a completely different level. The match in Milan against Inter ended in a painful defeat with a 0:4 score. Lecce has 6 points after six rounds played. However, if you look at the level of rivals, this result seems more positive than negative. Lecce has already managed to lose to the notorious favorites (Inter, Napoli, and Roma) and lost to Verona at home. Nevertheless, there were also pleasant moments - these were away victories over Torino (2:1) and SPAL (3:1). The team’s next game is not easy again, but it will be very interesting to see how Lecce will play in defense against an opponent who is maximally focused on the attack and a large number of shots.
Footballers of Lecce have not played at this level for a long time, so they lost to the notorious favorites. We can also consider Atalanta one of the top teams in Italy, and maybe its great successes are yet to come, but the team needs to be praised for the game - it is the only team in Italy, which plays in the attack so aggressively. To some extent, the club from Bergamo may be tired after playing with Shakhtar, but it must beat the newcomer to the elite division.
Prediction for the match: Atalanta to win with -1.0 handicap
