THE TEAM NEWS

ATALANTA

  • Atalanta were far from their best as they struggled to overcome 10-man Cagliari but they did enough to continue their winning streak as they made it eight successive wins in Serie A with second spot now within their grasp.
  • Atalanta were given a huge helping hand as Cagliari conceded a penalty in the 26th minute which also saw them go down to 10 and despite Luis Muriel making no mistake from the spot, Atalanta were unable to build on that lead.
  • Having avoided defeat in their last 10 league matches, Atalanta will be confident of closing the gap on second-placed Lazio here although they will without the services of the suspended Jose Palomino.

SAMPDORIA

  • Sampdoria eased their relegation worries as they made it back-to-back wins in Serie A with a comfortable victory over SPAL at the weekend but they face an extremely difficult task to make it three in a row as they head to Atalanta.
  • Karol Linetty opened the scoring early on before Manolo Gabbiadini doubled the lead and Linetty added another just before the break to give Sampdoria a commanding advantage at half-time.
  • They were unable to add any further goals in the second half but saw the game out well but despite that win, it is unlikely that Lorenzo Tonelli will be able to recover from a knee issue while Ronaldo Vieira is also doubtful.

THE PREDICTION

Atalanta will have every belief that they can challenge for second spot in Serie A after securing an eighth straight win in the league at the weekend. It was not their best performance but they did enough for the win nonetheless and they will be confident of further success as they host Sampdoria. The visitors have won two in a row but this is a much more difficult task against the in-form hosts with Atalanta able to win by at least two clear goals.
