Torino will be looking for an improved result here after a 1-0 Serie A loss in their previous game against Fiorentina.
In that game, Torino had 51% possession and 6 attempts at goal with 3 on target. Fiorentina got 16 attempts at goal with 5 of them on target. Gaetano Castrovilli (78') scored for Fiorentina.
Fewer than three goals per match were recorded in 5 of the last 6 fixtures where Torino have taken part. Breaking down the goal split from this period, opposition teams scored an aggregate of 9 and Il Toro managed a tally of 5.
Coming into this contest, Torino haven’t won at home in the past 2 matches in the league.
Following on from a losing effort in their last game against Paris Saint-Germain in Champions League action, Atalanta will be hoping to turn things around here.
In that match, Atalanta managed 37% possession and 9 shots on goal with 4 on target. The only player to score for Atalanta was Mario Pašalić (26'). Paris Saint-Germain got 16 attempts at goal with 6 of them on target. Marquinhos (90') and Choupo-Moting (93') scored for Paris Saint-Germain.
The stats tell the story, and Atalanta have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, seeing their opponents hit 7 goals in all. At the back, La Dea certainly have room for improvement. With no two games being the same, time will tell whether the trend might be replicated in this upcoming match.
Ahead of this meeting, Atalanta are undefeated in their previous 10 away league matches. What a good run they have put together.
Head to head
If we look at their past head to head meetings dating back to 02/12/2017, it’s been all-even between these two clubs with Torino winning 2 of those games, Atalanta 2 and 2 being drawn after 90 minutes of play.
A sum of 19 goals were scored between the two sides during those clashes, with 7 for Il Toro and 12 coming from La Dea. The average number of goals per game works out to 3.17.
The last league match between these sides was Serie A match day 21 on 25/01/2020 when it ended Torino 0-7 Atalanta.
That day, Torino had 43% possession and 11 shots on goal with 4 on target.
For their opponents, Atalanta had 26 attempts at goal with 14 on target. Josip Iličić (17', 53', 54'), Robin Gosens (29'), Duván Zapata (45') and Luis Muriel (86', 88') scored.
The match was refereed by Marco Guida.
Team News: Torino
Wilfried Stephane Singo (Shoulder Injury), Ricardo Rodríguez (Thigh Problems) and Daniele Baselli (Ruptured cruciate ligament) are not available for Torino manager Marco Giampaolo.
In all likelihood, Il Toro will probably make use of the 4-3-2-1 formation for this one with Salvatore Sirigu, Cristian Daniel Ansaldi, Nicolas N'Koulou, Bremer, Armando Izzo, Souahilo Meite, Tomas Rincon, Karol Linetty, Andrea Belotti, Simone Zaza and Alejandro Berenguer Remiro.
Team News: Atalanta
Atalanta manager Gian Gasperini has to currently contend with reduced team options. Marco Tumminello (Sideband injury), Pierluigi Gollini (Cruciate Ligament Injury) and Aleksey Miranchuk (Hamstring Injury) miss out here. The players ineligible for this match because of suspension are Cristian Romero and Berat Djimsiti.
We are inclined to think that La Dea might play in a 3-4-2-1 formation, starting Marco Sportiello, Rafael Toloi, Mattia Caldara, Jose Luis Palomino, Hans Hateboer, Remo Freuler, Marten De Roon, Robin Gosens, Mario Pasalic, Ruslan Malinovsky and Duván Zapata.
We’re thinking that Torino should be able to breach the defence of this Atalanta outfit, but one goal may not be as many as the goals that they could concede.
Therefore, we think that it’s going to be a narrow 1-2 victory for Atalanta at full-time. Let’s just see how this one goes.
