Bergamas need to win
Bergamaschi are having a weak season for themselves, taking only eighth current place in Serie A. Atalanta can remain so without Eurocups, the team lags behind seventh-placed Fiorentina in terms of extra points. Such figures look very modest, after a couple of seasons in the group stage of the Champions League. In the last round, Gasperini’s charges lost on business, away to leading Milan 0-2. Now, they must win and expect a defeat against their rivals, which is the only way to qualify for the European competitions. Four players will miss the upcoming battle for various reasons.
Empoli are waiting for the end of the season
Empoli had a good start to the season, playing spectacularly and picking up frequent points, but then there was a sharp decline, only one win in 20 games, in this period they managed to score only 12 points, the penultimate result in the league. The team ranks 14th, having long ago guaranteed themselves a place in Serie A. In the last round there was a 1-1 home draw against Salernitana, although the opponents failed to convert a penalty at the end of the meeting. The club has four personnel losses.
In the first round Atalanta scored a confident 4-1 away win, Ilicic had already scored a double by the middle of the first half, making it much easier for his team.
Forecast on the match
Tournament significance this meeting has only for the home team, Atalanta here is considered to be the clear favorite. Empoli will play at their own pace and can show some entertaining football. A bet on the total of more than 3.5 goals looks very workable here.
