Atalanta, to finally win vs Bologna

Atalanta, to finally win vs Bologna

Atalanta BC and Bologna are two teams who failed to secure a win on their return in Serie A. Atalanta had a 2-2 draw on their last meeting against Spezia in the contest. Bologna on the other hand suffered a 1-0 defeat against 1-0 loss versus Roma on their return. These two teams will meet on January 10, 2023, at 1:30 AM (GMT+8), as Bologna host Atalanta for this match. These two teams are hoping to finally get a win after failing to do so upon their return in the contest.

Atalanta and Bologna met for 23 games already before this match, with the visitors holding a clear advantage. The visitors won 13 of those 23 meetings, while the hosts have won only five, while the remaining five all ended in draw. Coming into this game, the hosts are the one in a good momentum, winning four of their last six games. The visitors on the other hand are the complete opposite of the hosts, losing four of their last six games in the contest. This meeting can either halt the good run of the hosts, or will the visitors finally pick-up wins?

Serie A: Atalanta BC

Before this game, this squad had a 2-2 draw against Spezia, all thanks to the goals of Rasmus Hojlund, and Mario Pasalic. The goals of these two happened in the second half, cancelling Spezia’s goals in the first half. Currently, they are at the seventh in the league, with 28 points, and could have additional three points. If they happen to win in this game, they could rise up to fifth of the league table with 31 points. In fact, they are doing well this season, winning only one of their last five league games. This is not surprising though as their current form is a major source of concern. They are still lucky that they still have chance of entering the Top four if they continue on winning their next matches.

Injuries after injuries; this is what is currently happening with the squad of Atalanta. Just recently, Duvan Zapata sustained a knee injury , and will be monitored for today’s match. Additionally, Juan Musso was sidelined for the visitors, which will see Marco Sportiello to be in defense again.

This squad is coming from a 1-0 loss against Roma on their last match in the league, which is why they want to bounce back in this game. It was Roma’s midfielder, Lorenzo Pellegrini, who secured the win for this team. Bologna is still lucky though as they won three of their last five games, bringing them at the 12th of the league table. As they are currently at the 12th of the league table, they are with 19 points. A win in this match would retain them at the 12th with 22 points across their names.

Lorenzo De Silvestri is out in this match, as he is expected to be out up to a month, following his calf injury. On the other hand, Joshua Zirkzee, Musa Barrow, and Kevin Bonifazi could also miss this match.

Prediction:

Atalanta (1.0)
