An In-Depth Look at the Match
Here are our top Atalanta v Genoa betting tips. We are fast approaching the end of the Serie A season but there’s still plenty to play for, despite Juventus tying up yet another league title some time ago. At last count there are five teams involved in the race to finish in the two remaining top-four places behind Juve and Napoli and the heat just went up a notch. Atalanta are one of those sides hoping to secure Champions League football next term and they go into round 36 of the season sitting in second, determined to hold their ground in the coming weeks.
Season stats of 18 wins and eight draws against nine defeats has the locals on 62 points, one behind Inter Milan in third and three better than both AC Milan and Roma who are looking to gate-crash the party. Every win moves Atalanta a step closer and you can check on their progress by following this tie live on Premier Sports from 2.00pm on Saturday. Bookies have the home win as odds-on favourite and there’s no better than Ladbrokes 1/2 out there. That’s tight, but most firms give 4/9 on the same bet and we can’t afford to accept less of a price in such a tight market.
The Struggle Continues
Genoa haven’t had things anywhere near as good as their opponents this term and while Atalanta battle for a European place, Genoa have the real threat of relegation hanging over them. They make this trip sitting 16th in the table with 36 points to their name, placing them four better than Emploi and the bottom three, with still a good bit of football to be played. No one in the away dressing room can afford to think about their summer vacation just yet and many will fear for their futures if the club does nosedive into Serie B.
No win in five doesn’t help their cause any and of the last 15 points on the board, Genoa have managed to collect just three, that poor run of form made up of three draws and a couple of defeats. They have drawn each of their last two, however, and a team involved in the battle to beat the drop know the value of avoiding defeat, especially this late in the season. They’d take another draw – available at 17/5 (William Hill) – as a decent result. The away win stands little chance, trading 13/2 when betting with Bet365.
