Genoa vs Atalanta Analysis
It has been a reliable period in the season for Genoa coming into this latest round of matches in Italy. However, the Genoa draws are becoming an issue at present, as they have played out ties in three of their last five, and eight of their opening 23 matches this term.
Despite that, they have comfortably moved clear of the bottom three places in the standings, and they will have their sights set on a finish in the top half of the table in the second half of the campaign.
But, the forward players will need to improve their Serie A player stats if they are to achieve that target, as Genoa failed to score in their latest fixture after playing out a 0-0 draw on the road against Empoli.
Their frustrations in that match were evident in the closing stages, as Koni De Winter was sent off in second half injury time. But, a return to form in front of their home fans is hard to rule out.
There’s little doubt that Atalanta have been one of the most exciting teams in Serie A over the last five seasons. However, they have improved defensively this term to ensure that they are a standout contender for a Champions League spot.
Atalanta currently sits in the top four, and they come into this round after winning each of their last three, and four of their previous five in the Italian top-flight.
The Atalanta scores have been eye-catching in recent weeks in Italy, as they have scored ten goals across their last three matches. They were excellent in their most recent fixture, landing a 3-1 home win against Lazio.
That goal against was the first that they have allowed over that run of three matches, showing that they are one of the leading defensive sides based on the Serie A team stats.
Genoa vs Atalanta Head to Head
