Atalanta vs VeneziaSerie A, KO: 17:30 Nov 30, 2021, Gewiss Stadium
Atalanta will be looking to maintain their good form and crank up the pressure on the leaders as they host struggling Venezia in a midweek Italian Serie A fixture. The Bergamo club are playing with plenty of confidence at the moment and should make light work of their visitors.
Atalanta appear to be back to their best as they head into Tuesday’s clash with four wins and a draw from their last five Serie A matches. They are fourth on the table and with Napoli and AC Milan looking off colour lately, will be looking to close the gap on the leaders.
The 1-0 win over Juventus in their previous Serie A fixture will be particularly pleasing to manager Gian Piero Gasperini. Duvan Zapata scored the only goal as they won away to the Turin club for the first time in 30 years.
Led by Zapata, who now has nine Serie A goals this season, Atalanta are among the leading scorers in the league. They claimed a 5-2 victory over Spezia in their previous fixture at Gewis Stadium.
It has not been a particularly smooth return to the topflight for Venezia, who have claimed just four wins from 14 matches this season. They are currently down in the bottom half of the table and are slowly being dragged into the relegation scrap.
Venezia travel to Atalanta off the back of a 2-0 home defeat to Inter Milan last time out in Serie A. They had a few lively spells but were generally no match for the champions and finished with just a single attempt on target.
Paolo Zanetti’s men have also found things difficult on their travels this season with two wins in eight away matches. They have been on the receiving end of some heavy defeats in that run, including a 3-1 loss to Sassuolo and a 3-0 thrashing at the hands of Udinese.
How the bookies view it

Atalanta have a 2-1 advantage with one draw from four previous matches against Venezia. The last meeting between both teams was back in 2004 with Venezia claiming a 1-0 victory.
