Atalanta vs Udinese 10/24/21 Serie A Football Picks, Odds & Predictions »Sports Chat Place
Atalanta welcome Udinese to Gewiss Stadium on Matchday 9 of Italian Serie A. Atalanta have improved, they are solid in Serie A, but they lost a 0-2 lead to United in the Champions League earlier this week. Udinese have had a strong start to the season, but they are now winless in their last 5 games.
The Atalante is in 6e place in the Serie A table with 14 points, 14 goals scored and 10 goals conceded, and they really need to increase their offensive performance. The good news is that Atalanta have scored in 6 of their first 7 Serie A games and are also scoring a lot in the Champions League. Earlier this week against Manchester United, Atalanta had 44% of all possessions, 6 shots on goal, 5 corners, 2 big chances created and 79% of correct passes. After a brilliant first half, Atalanta were leading 0-2, but United shifted gears in the second half and Atalanta just couldn’t stop them. Atalanta ended up losing this game 3-2. Zapata is Atalanta’s top scorer with 4 goals, while Pasalic added 3 assists. Hateboer, Pessina, Djimsiti, Gosens and Toloi are all injured, and these are all players who would likely be in the starting XI. Atalanta are playing 3 games over the next 6 days, and they’ll need all the depth they can get, but I think they’re good enough to score points in this streak.
Udinese got off to a good start, but they are now sinking deeper and deeper. Thanks to their poor streak over the past month and a half, Udinese fell to 13e up, and they’ve only scored 4 goals in their last 5 games. Beto, Pereyra and Deulofeu have each scored 2 goals for Udinese so far this season. while Deulofeu also added 2 assists. Pereyra is suspended because of yellow cards. Udinese were playing against Bologna in their last game, and they had 41% possession, 2 shots on goal, 2 corners, 2 big chances created and 80% correct passes. Maybe if Udinese hadn’t conceded a red card in the first half they would have gotten a win here, but I think they can be lucky enough with a 1-1 draw. Even though Udinese is going through a crisis right now, they’re a good team with great players, and I think they’ll have no problem getting Serie A status this season.
At home, Atalanta haven’t lost to Udinese in their last 4 games, and they are in better shape here. Udinese are on a bad streak, he will miss one of his best players in this game, and I think he will lose.
