Atalanta vs Fiorentina

Gewiss Stadium is the venue as Atalanta and Fiorentina go head-to-head in an exciting Serie A showdown.

Atalanta’s last Serie A fixture ahead of the international break yielded their first scoreless draw in 23 top-flight matches, casting doubt on their ability to finish as top scorers in Italy’s top tier for the fourth season running. That’s a sharp contrast to Atalanta’s recent scoring return against Fiorentina that has seen them net 2+ goals in their last five H2Hs in a row. After winning three consecutive top-flight meetings with this ‘La Viola,’ the hosts are looking to post four straight league triumphs over this opposition for the first time. That prospect appears to be well on the cards, as ‘La Dea‘ have won two of their last three home Serie A H2Hs (D1), as many triumphs as they managed in their previous 11 such contests (D4, L50.

Meanwhile, Fiorentina bounced back from a 3-1 away loss to Roma on the opening weekend, eking out a 2-1 home win over underperforming Torino last time out as they look to improve upon last season’s underwhelming 13th-place finish. It’s been over a year since the visitors last managed to put together two successive Serie A triumphs in a single season, and a run of four straight league trips without a victory (D3, L1) suggests they might have to wait a bit longer to achieve that feat again. Though Fiorentina’s overall Serie A H2H record against Atalanta reads positively (W49, D37, L30), a five-match winless streak in Bergamo (D3, L2) is hardly inspiring. New boss Vincenzo Italiano remains hopeful of increasing his side’s away scoring form from last season as ‘La Viola’ drew a blank in 42.11% of their Serie A trips in 2020/21.
