Our football match prediction:
Buoyed by a 5-1 win over Crotone, Atalanta take on Fiorentina at Stadio Artemio Franchi on day 6 of the new Serie A campaign. The Orobici are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Stefano Pioli’s troops and they are likely to score in Sunday’s clash. Following back-to-back wins over the likes of Hellas Verona and Bologna, the Viola suffered a 1-0 loss to Juventus in their last league match, but it has to be noted that they finished the match with ten men on the field. Croatian midfielder Milan Badelj misses Sunday’s football match against Atalanta through suspension, but seeing that Fiorentina are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we predict that they will find the net against the Orobici. A high-scoring affair appears on the horizon and there is every chance fans will see a real football festival at Stadio Artemio Franchi.
