Atalanta vs Sampdoria: predictions and betting tips on the Serie A match on January 28, 2023
On January 28, Gewiss Stadium (Bergamo) will host the match of the 20th round of the Serie A, in which Atalanta will compete with Sampdoria. The battle will start at 20:45 CET.
The club, after having a true peak period, failed in the previous season, being left without a ticket to the European competitions. And one of the intrigues of the current Serie A draw was whether Gian Piero Gasperini would be able to return his wards to the higher mentioned level. The starting segment of 2022/2023 was pretty good, but just before the break, the distinctive team “stalled” again, losing 4 matches in 5 rounds. Moreover, “the Bergamascs” started with the battle against Spezia in January. Losing that game with a 0-2 score, the team made a comeback, scoring twice in the final quarter of an hour. Then, in the Serie A, it beat Bologna, winning that match with a 2-1 score, and Salernitana, making an 8-2 crush, and the aforementioned “Little Eagles” were defeated with a 5-2 score in the Coppa Italia. There were a lot of goals in the battle with Juventus, but everything ended with a spectacular 3-3 draw.
The team demonstrates its best from time to time, and with Giampaolo it was possible to break into the European Cup. But another Marco’s return, to tell the truth, was not successful – the previous season resulted in a mediocre way. Then, the team was able to achieve the “saving” 15th place at least, at the same time, a modest result of 36 points was enough for that. The new cycle for the club from Genoa started more than badly, and it is reasonable to mention that nothing really changed after Stanković had become a head coach. The last hope was connected to a long break, which could allow Dejan to overcome troubles. To be frank, it all started with a long-awaited victory – the team defeated Sassuolo with a 2-1 score on January 4, moreover, it happened in the away match. But then there came the “dry” defeats, not only in the struggle with Napoli, but also in the matches with Fiorentina (in the Coppa Italia) and Empoli. Even in the game with Udinese, which seems to be in crisis, the team was minimally defeated – 0-1.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
Atalanta won all 4 previous matches, moreover, each time with a difference of at least 2 goals. In August, there was a 2-0 victory in favour of Malinovsky and company in Genoa.
Bookmakers do not expect any intrigue from the following battle. We recommend betting that Atalanta will win with “a -1.5 goal handicap” (odd: 1.97).
