Team News: Atalanta
There’s just the lone fitness concern for the Atalanta boss Gian Gasperini to be concerned with from an otherwise fully-primed set of players. Davide Zappacosta (Biceps femoris muscle injury) is sidelined.
Team News: Spezia
Spezia boss Luca Gotti has multiple availability issues to deal with. Simone Bastoni (Meniscal Injury) and Jeroen Zoet (Unknown Injury) can’t be considered.
We’re thinking that Spezia are dangerous enough to break down this Atalanta outfit, but it probably won’t quite be as many as the goals that they could concede.
Our tip is for a narrow 2-1 win for Atalanta when the full-time whistle blows. Should be a good one.
