Chievo
VS
Atalanta
Gian Piero Gasperini said the “atmosphere around Atalanta is idyllic” after their 3-0 victory over Everton, but must focus on Chievo. “I will rotate the squad, because there are so many players who deserve time on the field. The most important thing about Atalanta is that the atmosphere around this team is idyllic. We are one group and that gives us a real push.”

 

 

As Gasperini said there will be rotations because of the heavy schedule. For Atalanta team this will be third game in 7 days and there is no doubt that this weights too much for the team. Atalanta finished fourth last season but now have an extra weight in the face of Europa League and the coach wants it or not is forced to think alternatives to the starting eleven.

 

 

The bad start against Napoli and Roma was quickly forgotten after the victory over Sassuolo and Everton, but fatigue certainly has and will impact today against Chievo. For today Robin Gosens and Leonardo Spinazzola are the missing players for Atalanta.

 

 

 

Chievo Coach Rolando Maran said that all he want is a victory agains high-flying Atalanta.

 

 

“After the last two games, all we got out of it was compliments. I am tired of receiving compliments when what we want is a victory and I hope my players feel the same way,” said Maran.

 

 

The team is working hard and trying to perform better and better every next game and even if they lost to Juve they did a good performance and it is obvious that the team is growing.

 

 

Maran also said "We have a similar to Atalanta's mentality , as we stay in the game and try to play the ball, not just defend and counter.”

 

 

If we look from a statistical point of view, we will see:

 

 

* Atalanta did not record a draw for 12 consecutive games.

 

* Chievo have failed to win any of their last five home matches.

 

* Atalanta avoided defeat in 74% of their away games last term.

 

* There have been under 2.5 goals scored in five of the last six meetings between these two teams.

 

 

There are 31 h2h games recorded and it is very interesting to mention that Chievo have won 10, drawn 11 and lost 10 with 64 goals scored 31:33...very equal statistics.

 

 

* Chievo have lost last 3 h2h games agains Atalanta

 

 

Chievo rested for 8 days and should at least end their bad serie against Atalanta today, and considering the rotations in the away team Chievo +0.25 asian handicap seems good enough for me.
