Our football match prediction:
Following a 1-1 draw with Milan, Atalanta recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Empoli at the weekend, with Alejandro Gomez scoring his scoring his 15th goal of the season. The Orobici have already booked their place in the Europa League, but they certainly want to give fans yet another reason for celebration. Atalanta play host to Chievo at their Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. You should bear in mind that the Orobici are on a nine-game unbeaten run in the Serie A ahead of Saturday’s football game. The Mussi Volanti suffered a heavy 5-3 loss to Roma in their last league game and given their poor form in the second half of the season, we predict that the visitors will return home empty-handed from the trip to Bergamo. In their last meeting at Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia Atalanta emerged triumphant.
