Genoa vs Atalanta

, KO: 19:45 Dec 21, 2021, Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris
Atalanta

Atalanta travel to Genoa for a midweek Italian Serie A fixture as they look to bounce back from a disappointing defeat. Genoa are also desperate for a win and having found things difficult this season, should be no match for a wounded Atalanta side.

It has been a torrid season for Genoa, who have claimed just one win from their 17 matches so far. They have spent much of the first half of the season in the relegation zone with manager Andriy Shevchenko still unable get the best out of his team.

Things appear to be getting worse for Genoa, who are currently on a 15-match winless run in Serie A. They were beaten 3-1 by Lazio in their previous fixture with Filippo Melegoni getting a consolation four minutes from time.

Genoa have struggled to make their home matches count and are winless at the Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris this season. They are currently on a three-match losing run at home and suffered a 3-1 defeat to Sampdoria in their previous fixture in front of their fans.

Atalanta are also coming off a defeat as they were surprisingly beaten 4-1 at home by Roma last time out in Serie A. They were second best throughout the encounter and only found the net through an unfortunate own goal from Bryan Cristante.

That result ended a run of six straight Serie A wins for Atalanta, who have shown some good form in recent weeks. Gian Piero Gasperini’s men continue to challenge near top of the table and will be keen to make a quick return to winning ways.

Atalanta have surprisingly fared better on their travels this season with eight wins and a draw from their nine away matches. Among their more impressive results on the road is a 3-2 victory over Napoli while they also triumphed 1-0 at Juventus.

How the bookies view it

The bookies have Atalanta as overwhelming favourites to claim at the win at 49/100 with novibet. Despite playing at home, Genoa are considered outsiders at 13/2 by BetVictor while Vbet is also offering odds of 4/1 for a draw.

Head to head

Atalanta have a 15-10 advantage with nine draws from 34 previous matches against Genoa. The Bergamo club claimed a 4-3 victory on their last visit to Genoa back in May.

Players to watch

Genoa's major problem this season has been in defence with Mattia Destro's good work at the other end of the pitch often undone by a leaky backline. The striker has seven goals this season and can ensure the hosts find the net on Tuesday at 8/15 with Vbet.

Atalanta were uncharacteristically wasteful in attack last time out and will be keen to set things right. They have scored in every away fixture this season and with Duvan Zapata expected to lead the line, that run is likely to continue at 1/14 with Vbet.

Anything else catch the eye?

There have been over 3.5 goals in three of Atalanta’s last four matches and Tuesday’s clash could be set to follow a similar pattern at 7/5 with Sporting Index. Both teams were on target in their last meeting and SBK is offering odds of 3/4 for a repeat.

Atalanta have scored in both halves in their last two matches and a similar outcome is priced at 11/10 with bet365. The Bergamo club could also be tipped to earn a win and over 3.5 goals at 21/10 with Coral.
