Atalanta vs Sporting CP

, KO: 20:00 Mar 14, 2024, Gewiss Stadium
Sporting CP

Atalanta welcome Sporting CP to Gewiss Stadium for their Europa League round of 16 second leg having battled to a stalemate in the first meeting. Both teams appear evenly matched at the moment and may need extra-time and possibly penalties to separate them.

Atalanta fought back from a goal down to earn a 1-1 draw with Sporting CP in last week’s first leg. Having gone behind early in the contest, Gianluca Scamacca got the equaliser just before the break and neither team was able to find the winner.

Things have not been particularly smooth for Atalanta in recent weeks as they are winless in their last five matches. Gian Piero Gasperini’s men have played out three draws in that run, including a 2-2 score line with Juventus in a Serie A fixture on Sunday.

The good news for Atalanta is that they have fared much better at Gewiss Stadium with eight wins from their last nine home matches. However, they were beaten 2-1 by Bologna in their previous fixture in front of their fans.

Sporting CP will be disappointed not to have seen out the win in the first leg after making a fast start. They failed to hold on to an early effort from Paulinho and were pegged back just before the break.

Despite the disappointment of that draw, the result means Sporting CP are now unbeaten in their last 11 matches across all competitions. They have picked up eight wins in that run while three of the last six fixtures have ended in draws.

Sporting CP have also impressed on their travels and are unbeaten in their last five away matches. Ruben Amorim’s men claimed a 3-0 victory at Arouca in a Primeira Liga fixture last Sunday.

Atalanta have the upper hand among the bookies with a home win priced at 11/10 by Betfred. A victory for Sporting CP is valued at 23/10 by William Hill while a draw is set at odds of 14/5 by bet365.
