Empoli vs Atalanta BC Prediction

Check out our analysis, team news, line-ups and see our prediction for this match.

Surprisingly separated from only two points in the overall ranking, Empoli and Atalanta BC meet on Sunday at the Stadio Carlo Castellani after an unpredictable start to the Serie A season.

While the newly promoted hosts defeated Juventus and beat Bologna to sit comfortably in midfield, the Bergamaschi guests have only taken one point from their last two games – against Lombard rivals Inter and Milan.


Prediction for this match

After sustained excellence both domestically and abroad over the past three years, Atalanta’s perhaps strongest squad this season has been frustratingly volatile this season, having only won three of their seven home games so far, placing them in eighth place.

However, they were unbeaten in five games in all competitions – including a spectacular draw against Masters Inter – prior to visiting Milan two weeks ago, with their Champions League victories apparently gaining momentum in the camp.

However, it was the Rossoneri who took the maximum points after beating La Dea 3-2 and kept them ahead of the ambitious promoters from nearby Bergamo, who were just one point behind Stefano Pioli’s Scudetto contender last May.

Born in Brescia, cashes in after just 28 seconds Davide Calabriathe hosts were already three goals behind before they gave the score a respectable shine on a late move. Duvan ZapataPenalty and a replacement goal in stoppage time Mario Pasalic were ultimately in vain when the Nerazzurri slipped to a second Serie A defeat of the season.

After a two-week break for World Cup qualification and the Nations League final Gian Piero Gasperini has called up his troops for a trip to Tuscany, where they will now meet the Series B champion.

You can travel with confidence as Atalanta’s last away league defeat came to Inter in March. Since then, they have recorded six wins and three draws – a record that has only been exceeded by leaders Napoli and runner-up Milan during this period.

After Empoli had taken victories in a row and had previously defeated a battered Juventus team, Empoli was hoping for another big surprise before the break with a win at Roma.

However, their visit to the Stadio Olimpico, where the capital’s club has been almost invincible as the home team in recent months, did not live up to these expectations as the Azzurri were beaten by goals from the Giallorossi captain Lorenzo Pellegrini and Henrikh Mkhitaryan a few minutes on either side of the half-time break.

From then on, the Roma took control of the game and gave up Aurelio Andreazzoli‘s men for their fourth loss since returning to the top division, in which they have not yet played a draw this season.

Though barely considered great entertainers like their Sunday afternoon visitors, the hard-working Empoli squad have a handful of attacking talents that make them a threat to the often fragile Atalanta defenses.

After the young Inter loaner had problems with Roma after half an hour before he was eliminated due to injury, Andrea Pinamonti has joined the chief creator Nedim Bajrami in an enterprising front line that bodes well for the Tuscans’ plans to improve the last time the bergamashi came to town.

The clubs last faced each other in Serie A in April 2019, when in a goalless game the most shots in a 0-0 draw for over 15 years were scored with such records – with a remarkable 50 shots (Empoli 3, Atalanta 47 ) rained on goal without hitting the net.

Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini has a number of first-team players missing as full-backs this weekend due to injuries Hans Hateboer (Foot) and Robin Gosens (Thighs) are expected to be on the sidelines of Matteo Pessina and center-back Berat Djimsiti.

While Davide Zappacosta and Joakim Mahle the ex-couple will be represented again, Pessina’s place could go to Josip Ilicic or Mario Pasalic in the Castellani.

Italy international Rafael Toloi is back in line so will start in the back three while the summer signing rumors linger on Juan Musso can be dropped for reserve goalkeepers Marco Sportiello On Sunday.

The hosts, meanwhile, are relieved to find striker Andrea Pinamonti available after being substituted off early in Rome with a hamstring injury and the Italian U21 star will start in the front.

He should join in too Federico Di Francesco or Patrick Cutrone in the forwards pairing, with Nedim Bajrami hoping to be recalled to an advanced midfield role after benching the first half at Olimpico.

Samuele Ricci however, was excluded from the midfield plans of Aurelio Andreazzoli and his substitute goalkeeper Jacopo Furlan also fails because of a thigh strain.

Empoli possible starting line-up:
Deputy; Stojanovic, Viti, Romagnoli, Marchizza; Haas, Stulac, Bandinelli; Bajrami; Pinamonti, Di Francesco

Atalanta BC possible starting line-up:
Sportiello; Palomino, Demiral, Toloi; Zappacosta, Freuler, De Roon, Maehle; Pasalic, Malinovsyi; Zapata

Probability: Empoli 1-2 Atalanta BC

Empoli is a team that has adapted to life in the elite and has little to lose against one of the new “Seven Sisters” of Serie A who dominate the top of the table.

Although the Azzurri are a difficult task for many teams because of this fearlessness, Atalanta will be able to fight fire with fire on Sunday and, thanks to their offensive talents, make up ground with a victory.
