Atalanta Prediction

Atalanta occupy 6th place in Serie A and therefore sit in the last remaining European spot which is the Europa League qualifier berth, but the hosts have a great chance of gaining another three points tonight with the visit of struggling Empoli, which would lift the hosts up into 4th place on goal difference above AC Milan.

Plenty of incentive then for Atalanta to garb another win here, and having put together a six match unbeaten run prior to Monday night’s clash with Empoli, the hosts will be in confident mood and will approach this tussle with a purpose.

Recent wins over Fiorentina, Sampdoria, Parma and Bologna have helped push Atalanta into serious challengers for a European spot next season, while their overall home record stands at 7-4-4 29/17 which includes just one defeat out of their last eight matches at their Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia, which was a loss to AC Milan.

Additional wins against Lazio and SPAL have kept the hosts in the hunt for a top four finish and with the likes of goalscoring midfielders Ilicic (11 goals) and Gomez (6 goals) along with forward Zapata (20 goals), Atalanta look in good shape ahead of Monday night’s encounter.

 

Key-Facts – Atalanta v Empoli

  • Atalanta have lost just 1 out of their last 8 home matches in Serie A
  • Empoli have lost their last 5 away matches on the trot in Serie A
  • Empoli are yet to record an away win in Serie A this season

 

Empoli Prediction

By contrast, Empoli occupy the lowly position of third from bottom in the Italian top flight and therefore sit in the relegation zone ahead of this difficult looking trip to face an in-form Atalanta outfit, as they too seek all three points in order to boost their chances of Serie A survival.

Empoli have produced mixed results in recent weeks as they’ve recorded wins against Frosinone and Napoli, both by 2-1 margins and both registered at their Stadio Carlo Castellani, but in-between times, the visitors have fallen to defeats against Roma, Juventus and Udinese on their travels.

Empoli have gained 7 wins throughout this campaign so far this season but all of them have been recorded on home turf, while their results away from home have been quite simply dreadful; along with basement dwellers Chievo, they’re the only teams yet to register an away win this season in Serie A with an appalling away record of 0-4-11 14/34.

In addition, Empoli have lost their last 5 away matches on the trot with defeats at Lazio, AC Milan, Roma, Juventus and Udinese, so it’s hard to see them coming away with anything here.

Betting Tips Verdict

Atalanta should cruise to victory here and also cover the asian handicap line in the process too.
