Team News: Atalanta
Hans Hateboer (Unknown Injury) and Luis Muriel (Thigh Problems) won’t be able to feature for Atalanta manager Gian Gasperini. Marten de Roon will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
Team News: Fiorentina
Out of a mainly healthy group, there’s only the one fitness problem for the Fiorentina gaffer Vincenzo Italiano to contend with. Michele Cerofolini (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out for this game.
In this match, Atalanta can and should have the majority of the possession and should be able to turn a few of their chances into goals.
In contrast, Fiorentina may well struggle to find the back of the net but we can see them pulling one back during this clash.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a pretty comfortable 3-1 victory for Atalanta at the end of the 90 minutes.
