Torino – Atalanta Predictions and Preview
- Loitering in mid-table, Torino really need to inject some spark into their season in order to make an assault on the European places. Qualifying for continental football isn’t something they’ve achieved since battling to a European spot back in 2018/19 when they finished seventh, the exact same position that visitors Atalanta found themselves in after the first 13 rounds of the season, giving Torino a chance here to close the gap to those coveted spots.
- Things were looking much more promising for Torino in that sense after opening their campaign on solid footing, but a run of two wins from nine in Serie A (SA) since mid-September (D3, L4) has seen their season stall a little. They’ll be hoping the visit of Atalanta can help kick-start their campaign again, but having lost the last four SA home H2Hs, one of which was their joint-heaviest SA defeat in history (7-0), things may yet get worse before getting better.
- Such success against Torino opens up the chance for a piece of history for Atalanta here, who have never before managed five-successive away wins against a single opponent in their SA history. A paltry three wins from their last nine SA road trips (D1, L5) would hint there’s a good chance they’ll fall short, but having secured top spot in their UEFA Europa League group in midweek thanks to a 1-1 draw against Sporting Lisbon, they should be full of confidence.
- It’s just as well Atalanta have endured some European success, as their league form has been somewhat underwhelming (D1, L2), and failure to record a victory here would match their longest prior winless run of 2023. The bookies still fancy them to snap that streak in Turin, probably due to that strong recent H2H form, and a sparkling record across their last six Monday-held SA games (W4, D2).
- Players to watch: Nikola Vlašić was on the scoresheet in a 3-1 away defeat to Atalanta last season, and he was also the scorer of the winning goal in Torino’s last home outing. On target with the opening goal in midweek, Atalanta’s Gianluca Scamacca has closed the scoring in all three of his SA scoring appearances this season.
- Hot stat: Ten of Torino’s 13 SA games have stood level at the break this season, a league-high.
