This should be an interesting match since both teams need points. Atalanta is in longer unbeaten series and occupies position that leads to the Champions League, while Genoa dwells in the bottom half of table and still hasn’t left behind worries about its survival, although they have four points more than teams in the drop zone and by that are not overly endangered Atalanta has three points more than 5th-placed Milan. Genoa won their match played in the first part of season by 3-1.
Ten-game unbeaten streak in the Serie A propelled Atalanta at the fourth place in the table and now they want to stay there. They have good situation; they will play two matches at home with objectively weaker teams and one away match with old/new champion Juventus that has no proper motive. Right now Atalanta has three-game winning streak including away victory in the previous round against Lazio when they won 3-1 after turning the result up-side down. They paid the price with yellow cards for Gomez, Masiello and Mancini, which is why these three players cannot play now.
Genoa put itself in situation to live in fear for place in the Serie A next season after series of weak results made lately. They didn’t win in seven last rounds, and have won just once in last 10 rounds, oddly enough no other team but new/old champion Juventus. Besides that match they played several other against stronger team and they lost by sound goal difference to Inter but they managed to pull draw with Napoli and Roma. In the previous round they won one point against Roma. With it theypractically helped Atalanta, although they too won a valuable point and right now Genoa has four more than teams in the drop zone. Midfielder Lazovic should be the only refreshment in the team.
The match is more important for Atalanta as Genoa has room for calculation. Besides, Atlalant plays much better than Genoa this season, where the visiting team plays quite badly recently, while the home one is in very good shape. That is why we forecast triumph of the team from Bergamo.
