Torino vs AtalantaSerie A, KO: 19:45 Dec 4, 2023, Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino
Torino will be looking to snap out of a difficult patch as they host Atalanta in a Monday night Serie A fixture. The Turin Club have been out of sorts lately and could find things difficult against Atalanta, who have a good record in this fixture and have shown some quality on their recent travels.
Torino head into Monday’s clash off the back of a 2-0 defeat to Bologna in their previous Serie A fixture. They saw a solid amount of possession and created several chances but lacked the cutting edge in the final third.
That was the first defeat in the last four matches for Torino, who appeared to be building some momentum. However, a wider look at their recent form shows Ivan Juric’s men have picked up just two wins in their last nine Serie A matches.
Things are just as erratic for Torino at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino, where they have picked up just one win from their last five matches across all competitions. However that win came in their previous home fixture as the Turin club earned a 2z-1 victory over Sassuolo with Antonio Sanabria opening the scoring.
Atalanta also appear to be going through a rough patch as they have claimed just one win from their last five matches across all competitions. However they remain in contention for a European finish, sitting just one point off the top six.
The Bergamo club suffered a 2-1 home defeat to champions Napoli last time out in Serie A with Ademola Lookman getting their goal. They followed that up with a 1-1 draw with Sporting Lisbon on Thursday, although that result was enough to see them progress to the knockout phase of the Europa League.
An interesting thing about Atalanta’s campaign is that they have done some good work on their recent travels, suffering just one defeat in their last six away matches across all competitions. Gian Piero Gasperini’s men have picked up some key Serie A wins in that run, beating Empoli 3-0 and earning a 1-10 over Verona.
