28th February 2022 – 20:45, Gewiss Stadium, Bergamo
Atalanta and Sampdoria will close the Serie A 27th round with a Monday evening clash. The hosts want to break their winless streak in the Italian top flight, while the away side searches for a surprise.
Atalanta Preview & Team News
Atalanta, buoyed by their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after the 3:0 Europa League victory vs Olympiakos. However, La Dea hasn’t been too convincing in Serie A lately. The home side failed to win five times in a row and slipped to 5th place. It has been seldom in recent games that Atalanta hasn’t conceded. It will be a concern for them that Atalanta has seen their defense breached in 5 of their previous six games, shipping eight goals on the way. Nevertheless, Atalanta can still get back to the top four since they are three points behind Juventus. The players ineligible for this match because of suspension are Merih Demiral and Berat Djimsiti.
Sampdoria Preview & Team News
Sampdoria heads into the encounter after a 2:0 Serie A win as they beat Empoli in their most recent game. That victory helped them move away from the relegation zone, as Samp is four points ahead of the red line. Marco Giampaolo’s Sampdoria has found the net eight times throughout their six latest matches, thus yielding them the goals per game average of 1.33. However, Sampdoria has been without an away win for the past four league games going into this contest. They also need to start picking up points on the road to climb to the safe mid-table position. Sampdoria boss Marco Giampaolo has some current player fitness concerns. Sebastian Giovinco (Calf Problems), Kristoffer Askildsen (Knee Problems), Mikkel Damsgaard (Thigh Problems), and Manolo Gabbiadini (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will not be playing here.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Atalanta spilled too many points at home, and they need to stop that trend. After beating Olympiakos, La Dea is full of confidence, and they should book another comfortable victory to stay in the top-four race.
Goals Market Prediction
The hosts conceded too many goals at home, and we might see another efficient match. Although Sampdoria’s last four outings stayed under a 2.5 margin, we expect to see at least three goals in total here.
