Torino take on the visitors Atalanta in the round 14 match of Italian Serie A. The match will be played on Monday, December 4th at Stadio Olimpico di Torino (Turin).
Torino have a rich yet tragic history. Despite winning the cup, the Bulls secured the title three decades ago. The current hopes for progress were linked to the team's current coach, Ivan Juric. Overall, the Croatian managed to improve the situation, but it wasn't challenging since, at the time of his arrival in 2021, the team was in 17th place. However, it is evident that the current team's ceiling is a place in the middle of the league table. In the previous season, the revamped Torino managed to break into the top 10 of the final standings without serious expectations for European competitions. They are maintaining a similar level now. Interestingly, after 12 rounds, the Granata had four wins, draws, and losses each (though with a negative goal difference). Last round, they secured a calm 2-0 victory over Bologna.

Atalanta couldn't fully reclaim top positions. The combination of La Dea and Gian Piero Gasperini was perfect. The club was in the top four of Serie A for a while, reached cup finals, and played in the Champions League playoffs. However, this turned into a failure in the penultimate season. Despite efforts to prove it was an exception, Atalanta couldn't return to the top four in Serie A in the 2022/2023 season, even with Juventus receiving a 10-point penalty. Currently, the Italians are simultaneously competing in the Europa League, where they are quite successful. In the 5th round, they not only secured a place in the tournament's playoffs against Sporting Lisbon but also topped their group. However, their performance on the domestic front is less stable and optimistic. Although they have more wins than losses, it's only by one—6 wins against 5 losses. In the last round, they suffered a 1-2 defeat at home against Napoli: Lukman responded to Quaratcchiella's goal, but the visitors managed to score again. As a result, the ambitious team has 20 points after 13 matches, challenging the 6th place with Fiorentina.
The last time Torino won was in 2019, winning twice in a row. After that, Atalanta won five times in seven matches, with a couple of draws, including the most recent encounters. The visitors are considered the favorites. We expect them to win, but we'll play it safe with a Draw No Bet option.
Prediction for the match: Atlanta not to lose (X2).
