Atalanta vs Chievo (By: Saconex)
Italy Serie A
Atalanta (7) vs Chievo (20)
Atalanta are fighting for a Europe spot and should be fired up and ready to take 3 points today. They are still the second highest scoring team of the league, only Juventus (1) have scored more. Last match ended with a 1-2 away win vs Sampdoria (9) & they won the last home match 3-1 vs Fiorentina (10). 8 of their 13 victories this season ended up by winning with 2+ goals. The hosts will miss defender Toloi.
Chievo are placed in the bottom with only 1 victory. They are the lowest scoring team and the highest conceding team of the league. With 12 points up to Empoli (17) and out of the relegation zone, this seems way to hard for them to turn around in just 11 matches left. 0-5-8 on their travels so far, and they wont stand a chance today I think. Will miss defenders Bani, Tomovic & Schelotto. Also midfielder Rigoni will miss out.
* Atalanta crushed Chievo by 1-5 in the reverse fixture back in October
* 6 of 8 Chievo away losses this season ended up by losing with 2+ goals
* Last 6 meetings: 5-1-0
If Chievo manage to get something from this match, it will be a very very big surprise imo. They are playing football without any confidence and knows how solid Atalanta are. At the same time, a draw wont help them much either, so the small hope they have is to go for 3 points. Atalanta will get their chances here for sure, and they are coming from some hard matches vs solid teams as Milan (3), Torino (6), Fiorentina (10) & Sampdoria (9). This is the first of 3 matches against bottom half teams in the upcoming weeks, and I expect them to win this without problems. 3-0?
