Atalanta host Udinese in an Italian Serie A fixture at Gewiss Stadium with both teams trying to find their rhythm following mixed starts to the season. The hosts have fared slightly better than their visitors and should edge this one.

Given the open nature of Serie A this season, Atalanta would have hoped to be challenging further up the table. However, things have not gone according to plan for the Bergamo club who are currently sixth on the table.

Although Atalanta are 10 points off the pace, it is still early days in the season and manager Gian Piero Gasperini will believe they can turn their fortunes around. They have shown flashes of their quality and have lost just once in their last five Serie A matches, claiming three wins in that run.

Atalanta will be feeling confident heading into Sunday’s clash following a 4-1 victory over Empoli last time out in Serie A with Josip Ilicic and Duvan Zapata among the goals. However, their defence remains a problem which was highlighted when they threw away a two-goal lead in a 3-2 defeat to Manchester United in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Udinese are coming off a 1-1 home draw with Bologna in their previous Serie A fixture. They attempted a late fight back after going behind but failed to add to Beto's equaliser eight minutes from time.

It has been a mixed start to the season for Udinese, who are barely clinging to 10th place on the table. Luca Gotti’s men are winless in their last five Serie A matches and could slip into the bottom half of the standings if results do not go their way this weekend.

One problem for Udinese is their leaky defence which has conceded 10 goals in their last five Serie A matches. At the other end of the pitch, they will have to make do without attacking midfielder Roberto Pereyra, who misses out after getting a red card against Bologna.

How the bookies view it

Recent head to head

Atalanta have the upper hand in recent meetings with six wins and a draw from the last seven matches against Udinese. The Bergamo club claimed a 3-2 victory in last season’s fixture at Gewiss Stadium with Luis Muriel and Duvan Zapata getting their goals while Roberto Pereyra and Jens Stryger Larsen were on target for Udinese.
