Atalanta were held to a draw at the weekend against Spezia and occupy 7th position in the Serie A table heading into Saturday’s game against Verona.

The hosts have now drawn three of their last six matches in all competitions, including their last two league games. However, Atalanta still sit above Verona by 2pts and two places ahead of their latest encounter.

While Atalanta’s last three matches have produced under 2.5 goals, three of their last six matches have seen over 2.5 goals scored. Both teams have scored in three of Atalanta’s last six outings, but the club has managed to keep clean sheets in their last two outings.

The home side have only picked up two wins from their last six matches, 2-1 away at Crotone in Serie A and 2-0 away at Liverpool in the Champions League, losing once and drawing on three occasions.

However, Atalanta have had the better of their recent exchanges with Verona and lead the head to head record between the two clubs with 10 wins, 4 draws and 8 defeats from the duo’s last 22 encounters. Atalanta are currently four games unbeaten against Verona, winning three times and drawing once. Four of the pair’s last six meetings have produced over 2.5 goals, including a 5-0 win for Atalanta in 2018.

Verona are without a win in their last two matches after following up their impressive 2-2 draw at AC Milan with a 2-0 defeat at home to high-flying Sassuolo. Like Atalanta, Verona have only managed to win one of their last six matches in all competitions but have only lost once during that period.

The visitors have drawn four of their last six matches, three of which have seen both teams score. Over 2.5 goals have been produced in three of Verona’s last four outings and the visitors have only managed to keep one clean sheet in their last six attempts.

Pasalic, Depaoli and Caldara are all expected to miss out for the hosts this weekend due to injury, while Verona could be without the services of Kalinic, Lazovic, Gunter and Vieira.

Forebet expects goals to be scored when Atalanta take on Verona this weekend, as so often is the case when these two teams clash. Atalanta have conceded 9-goals in their last six matches and neither side has looked overly strong defensively in recent weeks.

Forebet is backing both teams to score on Saturday and expects over 2.5 goals to be produced, but with both teams not winning many games of late a 2-2 draw is our final scoreline prediction.
