Team News: Atalanta
Thanks to a fully injury-free squad to choose from, Atalanta boss Gian Gasperini has no fitness worries whatsoever coming into this game. Pierluigi Gollini is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
Our pre-match assessment is that Atalanta should see a lot of the ball and convert quite a few goal-scoring opportunities.
At the other end, Parma won’t find it easy to make a breakthrough but we do fancy them scoring here as well.
We can therefore see a pretty comfortable 1-3 win for Atalanta when the referee blows the final whistle.
