Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Atalanta have been producing scintillating displays of late. Following a 2-1 win over Inter, the Orobici recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win at Pescara in midweek and, as a result, they moved a little closer to the Europa League places. Atalanta do now want to stop now and they are widely expected to go all guns blazing at Genoa on Matchday 11. Gian Piero Gasperini’s men are after their third consecutive win at home (Napoli, Inter) and we predict that the Orobici are capable of extending their winning run in the Italian top flight. Genoa, on the other hand, crushed Milan 3-0, with Serbian midfielder Nikola Ninkovic scoring first ever Serie A goal in Tuesday’s football match. The Rossoblu proved their worth in the victory over Vincenzo Montella’s troops, but their away displays leave a lot to be desired and we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed.
