Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Following a 1-1 draw with Roma, Atalanta will look to start a new winning run in the Serie A when they take on Frosinone on Matchday 20. The Orobici are eyeing their fourth consecutive win at home, but they will have to showcase their worth on the field. Ademola Lookman is representing Nigeria at the 2024 AFCON, while both El Bilal Toure and Hans Hateboer are out of contention with injuries. Defender Rafael Toloi faces race against the clock to be fit for Monday’s encounter.
The Canarini, on the other hand, suffered yet another disappointing defeat at the weekend, with the team losing to Monza in front of home fans and given their shaky defence, anything but a routine home win would be a big surprise. In their last meeting in Bergamo Atalanta rolled over Frosinone 4-0. As for the away team, Riccardo Marchizza remains on the sidelines with injury, while all Antony Oyono, Jaime Baez, and Sergio Kalaj are major doubts.

Highlighted Team (Frosinone):
Back in 1912 Frosinone were founded as Unione Sportiva Frusinate and it has to be noted that the colors of the team were originally red and blue. They were later changed to the current yellow and blue and the Canarini have been wearing those kits ever since. Frosinone made their first ever appearance in the Serie A in the 2015/2016 season, but they failed to secure the promotion.
The Canarini finished the season in 19th place in the standings, eight points behind Udinese, who eventually avoided relegation to Serie B. However, two years later Frosinone returned to the Italian top flight as they defeated Palermo 3-2 on aggregate in the play-offs final.
The club play their home games at Stadio Benito Stirpe, the stadium that was opened in 2017. The venue can hold 16,227 spectators and it is owned by the Municipality of Frosinone. The construction cost €20 million.
