Odds: 1.65

Atalanta

After a few games, which were quite unexpectedly played to zero, “Atalanta” reached again the “design capacity”, having issued a 2-2 draw with Juve and conceding the same two from Brescia. We mean that “Verona” will inevitably score.

Verona

“Verona” is spending the season at a very high level. Despite the fact that Ivan Juric’s team was predicted to leave Serie A, it not only managed to avoid it, but also joined the fight for European cups, where it was the favorite until recently. At the moment, the Mastiffs are in ninth place in the table with 44 points, nine points behind the seventh Milan.

Such a handicap hardly allows Verona to be considered a clear contender for the Europa League, especially, since the competitors are Sassuolo and Milan. On the other hand, it makes sense to note the team's progress. The crisis, which started in the 30th round, when the “Mastiffs” lost unexpectedly 0: 2 away to “Brescia”, knocked the team out of the candidates for the European competition, but it still has not been stopped.

In the last round, Verona lost almost no chances away to Roma(2:1), thus extending the streak without wins to four matches.

Atalanta

Atalanta fought in the group stage of the Champions League in the fall and failed to perform well on two fronts. The team of Gianpiero Gamperini lost a lot of points in the first round. These points are now lacking the Bergamascans in order to fully qualify for the title, while they have 70 points in their assets, with which they occupy first place in the table.

The intrigue in the fight for the Scudetto could have been much sharper now, if Atalanta had kept the victory over Juventus in Turin, but two penalties deprived them of two well-deserved points. The lag behind the “old lady” is currently seven points, which will be extremely problematic to win back by the end of the season, but theoretically it is still possible.

In the last round, Atalanta defeated Brescia at home with a score of 6: 2, thus gaining 21 victories of the season and extending the unbeaten streak in all tournaments to 15 matches.

Prediction

“Verona” did not manage to pass the entire distance of the tournament with high quality. In the conditions of the crazy intensity of the tournament, it was unable to show a stable result. Now the “mastiffs” are clearly on the decline and it will be almost impossible for them to return to their previous level. Atalanta is quite capable of taking advantage of this today.

In the duel with Brescia, Gasperini gave almost all the main players a rest, so today the Bergamasks will be fresh and motivated. Verona is unlikely to be able to cope with such an opponent.

We believe that the owners have no chance. Forecast - Asian handicap (-1) at Atalanta. In BC 1xBet, such an outcome is offered with odds 1.65

Our prediction - Total under 2,5
