All Atalanta v Sampdoria match predictions, user poll and stats are shown below - along with the latest match odds.
Atalanta go into this game coming off the back of a 3-3 Serie A tied result versus Juventus.

Juventus got 15 shots at goal with 8 of them on target. Ángel Di María (25'), Arkadiusz Milik (34') and Danilo (65') scored for Juventus.
Atalanta have been finding it hard to keep clean sheets of late, although they’ve also done enough to convert their own chances into goals. Over their last 6 matches, Atalanta have been punished defensively in 6 of them in addition to scoring in 6 of those matches.
Coming into this meeting, Atalanta have not lost a league tie with Sampdoria in their previous 4 matches.
After being defeated in their last game at the hands of Udinese in Serie A action, Sampdoria and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
In that match, Sampdoria managed 55% possession and 9 attempts at goal with 1 of them on target. At the other end, Udinese got 14 shots on goal with 5 of them on target. Kingsley Ehizibue (88') was the scorer for Udinese.
It is worth noting that Sampdoria have been starved of goals over their last 6 games, contributing the disappointing return of only 2. In those fixtures, i Blucerchiati have also seen the collective goal tally against them equal 8. We will have to find out if that trend will be sustained into this next match.
Head to head
Looking over their most recent head to head clashes stretching back to 08/07/2020 tells us that Atalanta have won 5 of these and Sampdoria 1, with the tally of drawn games being 0.
A combined total of 18 goals were yielded between them throughout the course of those matches, with 14 of them for La Dea and 4 being from i Blucerchiati. That’s an average goals per game figure of 3.
Team News: Atalanta
Davide Zappacosta (Biceps femoris muscle injury) and José Luis Palomino (Biceps femoris muscle injury) will not be taking part for Atalanta boss Gian Gasperini.
Team News: Sampdoria
Sampdoria manager Dejan Stanković has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Omar Colley (Knee Problems), Manuel De Luca (Meniscal Injury), Ignacio Pussetto (Knee Problems), Andrea Conti (tendon irritation) and Abdelhamid Sabiri (Hamstring Injury) won’t be making appearances.
We’re thinking that Atalanta can and should stay in control for long periods of time and should be able to convert a few of the chances that they create.
At the same time, Sampdoria won’t find it easy to score a goal of their own although we do see them converting at least once.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a decent 3-1 winning margin for Atalanta at the end of this one.
