Market: Atalanta win

Odds: 8/11 @ Bet 365

Enjoying a very successful run of late, Serie A high-flyers Atalanta will travel to the Stadio Carlo Castellani on Sunday.

Starting with Empoli, while their 2-1 win over Udinese may have eased some of the pressure on Giuseppe Iachini, it doesn’t cover what has been an incredibly sluggish start for Sunday’s hosts. Failing to pick up a win in their 12 other Serie A outings, a run that stems back to the 19thof August, they have also now slipped into the bottom three. Freefalling down the table, it will be their recent defensive issues giving Iachini the biggest headache. Empoli have now failed to record a clean sheet in their last 10 and they have also now conceded 13 in their last five.

In stack contract to the hosts, life couldn’t be going much better for Atalanta. Putting in a seasons best performance to pick up an astonishing 4-1 win over Champions League contenders Inter Milan, Gian Gasperini’s men are now enjoying a four-match winning run. Climbing up the table in some style, it has been their attacking record that has been most impressive. Only the leading duo of Juventus and Napoli hold a better tally and Atalnata have been in scintillating form in the final third. Along with winning their last two on the road, they have also now scored 14 times on their winning run.
