It’s unlikely Venice will be able to keep their place in the top flight. In the last matchday the team suffered another defeat (their seventh in a row), and as a consequence they remain in the relegation zone. After 32 rounds, they have 22 points on their books. The gap from the saving 17th position is already 5 points.
This season, Paolo Zanetti’s charges have been unable to benefit from the home stands at all. Only 10 points have been earned in 16 games. All the team’s home field results are as follows: 2 wins, 4 draws and 10 defeats. 16 goals scored and 32 conceded.
This season, Venice have problems both in terms of performance and defence. This is indicated by a goal difference of 26 and 59 respectively.
Atalanta are in a deep crisis, because of which there is a risk to remain at the end of the season even without European competitions. In the last matchday Gasperini’s side were defeated by Verona 1-2. It’s the third successive defeat for Bergamo. And remarkably, they conceded at least two goals in all games.
If in previous years Atalanta struggled for European competitions at the end of the season, the team are currently sitting in eighth place in the standings. They have only 51 points on their books. The gap from the top 6 is 5 points. They are already 12 points behind the Champions League zone.
Their last outing saw them lose to Sassuolo 2-1. However, their away statistics look good: 10 wins, 3 draws and 3 defeats. 28 goals scored and 15 conceded. In 16 games, 33 points have been scored.
Statistics of personal meetings
This season Atalanta and Venice have already played 2 games – in the league and the Cup. Both of them were played at the Stadio Geviss. On every occasion, Bergamaschi have been stronger, 4-0 and 2-0 respectively.
In 12 of the previous 16 Serie A home games, Venice had not conceded more than 2 goals. At the same time, Atalanta have not conceded more than 2 goals in 7 of their 8 previous away games.
Prediction and bet on the match Venice – Atalanta. Outcome with cf. 1,83
Venice is located in the relegation zone. And it should be recognized that the level of football, which the team shows, fully corresponds to the position of Zanetti’s wards in the standings. I do not believe that the hosts will be able to earn any points against Atalanta. The visitors, although in crisis, are still a strong side. At the very least, Gasperini has better players at his disposal. Plus, this season they have earned most of their points on the road.
My prediction. I’m betting on Victory 2 with a handicap of 1.
