Competition: Serie A
Market: Atalanta win
Odds: 4/11 @ 888sport
Looking to extend on their European charge in midweek, Atalanta will welcome Spezia to the Gewiss Stadium on Wednesday evening.
Starting with the hosts, last seen over the weekend snatching a stunning last-gasp 2-1 victory away at Torino, Atalanta are enjoying an eye-catching end to the season. While Gian Piero Gasperini’s men might have suffered a shock 2-0 loss at the hands of Bologna on April 8th, La Dea have proven that was nothing more than a minor blip. Laying down a real Serie A marker earlier in the month as they stormed their way to a 3-1 romp at home against Roma, fans around the Gewiss Stadium are desperate to see their side clinch a Champions League return in 2023. Marking their return from March’s international break with a 3-1 win away at Cremonese, Atalanta should be smelling the chance to make another top-flight statement on Wednesday evening. Landing an action-packed 5-2 victory when they welcomed Spezia to Bergamo for a Coppa Italia showdown back on January 19th, Gasperini will be hoping for a repeat display here.
As for the visitors, last seen over the weekend putting in another nightmare display as they slumped to a 2-0 loss at home against Monza, Spezia find themselves firmly at the heart of another Serie A relegation scrap. Continuing to show a string of issues on either side of March’s international break, Leonardo Semplici’s downbeat squad suddenly find themselves as a leading bottom-three contender over the final few weeks. Suffering a routine 3-0 drumming at home against Lazio on April 14th, the Little Eagles have now mustered just a single win from any of their last 15 straight appearances. With that woeful run stemming all the way back to the middle of January, Semplici’s side will know that they face a real test here. Hit with that 5-2 loss when they travel to the Gewiss Stadium for their Coppa Italia tie back in January, it should also be noted that Spezia have failed to record a single win against Wednesday’s hosts from their previous seven attempts.
Bet: Atalanta 4/11 to beat Spezia in Wednesday’s Serie A showdown @ 888sport
