Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Buoyed by a 2-1 win over Bologna, Atalanta will be aiming to move closer to the Champions League berth when they take on Salernitana on Sunday. The Orobici quickly returned to winning ways, and they must be high on confidence ahead of the visit of Davide Nicola’s troops. Since there are no fresh injury worries in the home team, boss Gian Piero Gasperini is unlikely to make changes to the team that outplayed the Rossoblu on Monday.
The visitors, on the other hand, have been totally out of form of late, with the team collecting only one point in total from the last four league fixtures, and seeing that Atalanta are desperate to put an end to their three-match losing run in Bergamo, home win should be considered. Speaking of the away side, midfielder Lassana Coulibaly is back from suspension, whereas defender Pasquale Mazzocchi misses out with a knee injury. Flavius Daniliuc serves a one-game ban.
Highlighted Player (Duvan Zapata):
Duvan Zapata was born in Cali, Colombia on 1 April, 1991. The 186-cm-tall attacker started his youth career at America de Cali, playing for the club between 2004 and 2008.
