Torino vs Atalanta predictions- Saturday’s only Serie A game pits together two sides who are stuck in midtable. Both Torino and Atalanta have ambitions on making it in to Europe next season, especially after la Dea managed to finish fourth last term. They’ve not had such an impressive campaign this time around, slipping down to 10th as they try to juggle Serie A with European football. Will that see them take their eye off the ball in this visit to Turin?
Atalanta have been really poor on the road this season, losing 67% of their away trips. They’ve put in some really poor displays on their travels, but surely that has to change soon given the amount of quality in the visitors’ squad. They’re taking on a Torino side who have been inconsistent this term, and their form of late has seen them drop off in their push for a top seven finish. While they have Andrea Belotti up top, they’ve been struggling to get the best out of him since he picked up an injury.
Torino have had issues even with Belotti at his best, claiming just one win in their last 10 matches. Since he picked up a knee injury in early October, Torino have been far from their best. They went two games without hitting a shot on target, and they’ve managed to score just three times in their last six matches. That’s not a run you’d expect from a side who have a brilliant attack and a very offensive style of play. Il Toro simply aren’t matching up to their impressive scoring form from last season, but they are looking better at the back.
Torino vs Atalanta predictions
Atalanta aren’t having the same issues when it comes to finding goals, although they have only scored five times on their travels this term. They should find the net in this trip, and the fact that Bryan Cristante has hit form is a big boost to la Dea. Fresh from hitting two goals against Everton at Goodison Park in the Europa League, he struck the winner against Benevento on Monday night. With four goals in his last four matches in all competitions, the Italian is in great form, and we’re backing him to score any time in this clash.
However, we see this game being a close one. Torino come in to this match on the back of three straight draws, while half of their home matches this season have finished level. Meanwhile, Atalanta are yet to win an away game all season, having drawn four of their 14 Serie A outings overall. Two of last three meetings between these two in Turin have finished level, so we’re backing a draw as our main tip here, along with a 1-1 correct score.
