Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Atalanta will be aiming to extend their winning run in the Serie A to nine games when they host Sampdoria at their Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia. The Orobici defeated ten-man Cagliari at the weekend, with the team moving one step closer to booking their place in the Champions League. Atalanta are high on spirits ahead of the midweek fixture, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Sampdoria.
La Samp, on the other hand, picked up vital three points from the relegation six-pointer against SPAL. Sampdoria are seven points clear of the bottom three, meaning that they are on the right track to secure the Serie A survival. Anyhow, we are tempted to put our money on Atalanta as Sampdoria are not regarded as good travellers. The Orobici are eyeing their fifth consecutive win at home in the Italian top flight.
