In-form Atalanta welcome relegation-threatened Brescia to the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia, looking to extend a winning run in the competitive H2Hs to three games.
A 2-2 away draw with Juventus last time out brought Atalanta’s nine-game winning run in Serie A to a halt, although it now means the hosts have netted over 1.5 goals in 11 of their previous 12 league matches. Indeed, free-scoring ‘La Dea’ have bagged a league-high 87 goals on an average of 2.71 goals scored per Serie A fixture. Particularly dangerous after the break, Gian Piero Gasperini’s men have netted 58.62% (51) of the 87 Serie A goals scored in the second half of play. Moreover, Atalanta have put together five Serie home wins ahead of this round, scoring over 1.5 goals in each of those successes and restricting their rivals to a maximum of one per game on four of those occasions.
Meanwhile, the visitors have suffered back-to-back defeats ahead of this trip, conceding precisely three goals in each, as they enter the round nine points behind 17th-placed Genoa. Additionally, ‘Le Rondinelle’ have yet to pick up a league win away from home in 2020 (D1, L6), with five of those losses yielding a full-time margin of over 1.5 goals. Indeed, Brescia’s defensive problems have seen them concede a league second-high 34 Serie A away goals, with 64.71% of them arriving in the second half of play (22/34). Also, Brescia’s haul of 11 league goals scored on the road on an average of 0.67 goals bagged per Serie A trip is the division’s second-worst.
