After the comfortable 3:1 win in Venice, Atalanta will now look to make it two wins in a row when they host 11th-ranked Atleti Azzurri d’Italia at 7:15 p.m. Wednesday at the Stadio Atleti Azzurri.
Can Atalanta make it two wins in a row?
Gian Piero Gasperini’s side ended their miserable three-game losing streak in Serie A on Saturday with a comfortable 3-1 away win at Venezia.
Atalanta will try to extend their lead and make it two wins in a row when they face in-form Torino on Wednesday. With five games left in the season and 8th place in the table, Gasperini’s side will be motivated to finish as high up the table as possible in order to qualify for the Europa League next season.
The match against Torino will be crucial to see if Atalanta still has a chance to overtake Fiorentina (6th) and Lazio (7th), who are only two points ahead of Gasperini’s side.
Can Torino extend their unbeaten streak in Serie A to five games?
After two draws in Serie A against Milan (0-0) and Lazio (1-1), Torino closed the gap on tenth-placed Sassuolo with a 2-1 win over Spezia on Saturday and will be looking to cement themselves in the top half of the table.
Ivan Jurić’s side will approach the match against Atalanta with optimism as they look to continue their good form in the league, where they are unbeaten in four matches (two wins and two draws).
This confidence will be crucial, as Atalanta has just come off a losing streak of three consecutive defeats in Serie A, which has almost ruined their chances of finishing in the top four.
Atalanta will start the game with high speed and energy. They will press across the pitch and try to control possession. Torino will slowly grow into the game and will try to frustrate Atalanta.
