Atalanta – Lack of form leading to lack of European football?

Last time out in Serie A, a couple of late goals would help Atalanta bridge a two-goal deficit and salvage a 4-4 draw against an often goal shy Torino, in a thoroughly entertaining encounter in Bergamo. The fact his team were on the ropes, though, will be of some concern to manager Gian Piero Gasperini. As will his team’s recent form, with that now one win from the last five rounds (W1 D1 L3).

Any margin for error has been eroded as a consequence of their dip in form, leaving them on the outside looking in with regards to the European places. Le Dea sat eighth ahead of this round, only a point off sixth-place Lazio and a Europa Conference berth but aware all their rivals will have played before them on Monday. Not that it matters much if they cannot arrest a four-game winless run (D2 L2) at their Gewiss Stadium.

Key Stat: Each of Atalanta’s past five Serie A games have been rich on goalmouth entertainment, with all five seeing both teams scoring and a minimum of three goals.

Salernitana – Serie A’s in-form team to thrive in Bergamo?

Seemingly dead and buried as recently as the middle of April, when, after throwing away a lead to lose late on away at Roma, they were entrenched in the Serie A relegation places following an 11th consecutive winless outing. Salernitana are instead alive and fighting. Last week’s impressive victory over Fiorentina earning them a third successive win which has given them a realistic shot of staying up.

Davie Nicola has to be bullish about his side’s survival prospects now. Needing to make up three points on Cagliari to clamber out of the bottom three, ‘I Granata’ boast a game in hand and a kind looking run-in. Four of their final five opponents rank no higher than 12th, with a home fixture against Cagliari on 8 May particularly crucial. In Bergamo on Monday, they go in search of a third successive way win.

Key Stat: All four of Salernitana’s away victories in Serie A this term saw them win by a margin of exactly one goal. In fact, all six of their league victories in 2021-22 thus far came via one-goal margins, and they were all either 1-0 or 2-1 scores.

Atalanta Vs Salernitana Betting Advice

The only team to have won their previous three Serie A fixture? Salernitana. Believe it or not but the once doomed outfit are showing admirable gusto as they aim to survive a top-flight campaign for the first time in their history. Even a point from Monday’s long trek north would be seen as another step in the direction, but with Atalanta struggling as hosts of late, whose to say a fourth win on the spin is beyond them?


Atalanta Vs Salernitana – Key Facts:

  • This season’s other meeting between the teams was surprisingly subdued, producing only the one goal as Atalanta churned out a 1-0 scoreline in Salerno.
  • Atalanta have one win from their past five Serie A matches (W1 D1 L3) and none from their last four as hosts (D2 L2).
  • Salernitana are a team reborn. The southerners are the only team to have won their last three Serie A matches, two of those away from home ( 2-1 vs Sampdoria and 1-0 vs Udinese).


Atalanta haven’t won any of the last four Serie A home games. Their games haven’t lacked for drama, though, with the last five all seeing Over 2.5 Goals and Both Teams to Score. That same bet landed in three of the last four for Salernitana too, so has to come in for strong consideration here in a contest both teams recognise the value of winning rather than settling for a share of the points.
