Atalanta – Sampdoria
Atalanta welcomes Sampdoria in a game from the 27th round of the Italian Serie A.
Atalanta are currently 8th in the Serie A with 38 points won so far. Gian Piero Gasperini’s team have a record of 10 wins, 8 draws and 7 defeats since the beginning of the season. Last year Atalanta impressed everyone and qualified for Europa League, but right now the team from Bergamo is 6 points behind the 6th Sampdoria and the Europa League zone.
In their last five games Atalanta won twice, made two draws and lost once. Right now the Nerrazurri are in a run of two consecutive draws, made against Crotone and Fiorentina. Both matches ended with a 1-1 result.
Now Sampdoria are coming to Bergamo.
Sampdoria are having a very good season so far. They are currently 6th in the Serie A with 44 points, being on par with the 7th Milan. Samp have a record of 13 wins, 5 draws and 8 defeats since the beginning of the campaign. In their last five games Sampdoria won three times, made one draw and lost once. In the previous round Sampdoria enjoyed a 2-1 win over Udinese, thanks to goals by Matias Silvestre and Daniel Zapata.
It’s clear what Sampdoria’s ambitions are until the end of the season – keeping the 6th place and qualifying for Europa League. It would be a very good achievement from the club to do this.
Against Atalanta Sampdoria could be without Gaston Ramirez and Bartosz Berezynski, who are doubtful for the game because of injuries. Meanwhile Jacopo Sala have recovered from his latest injury and he’s ready to return on the pitch.
This is our look at the Serie A game between Atalanta and Sampdoria. This will be a competitive game between two teams with a very similar potential. Good luck!
