Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Atalanta impressed in the Serie A last season, but they have been having their ups and downs in the Italian top flight so far this term. Playing on three fronts seem to be a big problem for Atalanta and, as a result, they sit in 12th place in the standings ahead of Sunday’s football game against Bologna. The Orobici are a real force to be reckoned with at home and given the importance of the match for the hosts, we predict that they will fight tooth and nail against the Rossoblu. Bologna, on the other hand, made a slow start to the season, but they have been making progress week by week and it has to be noted that they are on a three-game winning run in the league at the moment. The Rossoblu defeated the likes of Sassuolo and Genoa in previous two away games in the Italian top flight, but they are unlikely to spoil Atalanta’s party at Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia.
