Reason For Bologna vs Atalanta Betting Tips

  • Atalanta have won each of their last seven matches against Bologna, a run that stretches back to 2015.
  • Only Inter Milan have claimed more away points than Atalanta in Serie A this season.
  • Atalanta have scored more away goals than any Serie A team during the current campaign.

Improvement required for hosts

Mediocre is the best way to describe Bologna this term. Sitting in a modest 13th position, they’re not in immediate danger of being sucked into the scrap for survival but they’re in with almost no chance of pushing up to challenge for 5th or 6th.

Recent form hasn’t been great as far as Sunday’s hosts are concerned, as they’ve won just one of their last five, three of which they’ve lost. Even at home, things haven’t gone too well lately. Bologna are without a win in three at Stadio Renato Dall’Arca, two of which they’ve lost. Overall, their efforts at home have been so-so this season, as total of 11 goals for and 12 against show.

Given their recent scoring record at home, notching nine in five, scoring two or more in four of those, the hosts will fancy themselves to make headway on Sunday, though their defensive record is a big worry, especially given the attacking power of the visitors.

Away efforts key for visitors

While Bologna have essentially been treading water at home, Atalanta have been swimming along at a rapid pace on the road. Only league leaders Inter Milan have won more away games in Serie A this season than Atalanta, who’ve won five and drawn three of their eight travelling matches.

What has been impressive about Atalanta on the road is the fact that they’ve scored so many goals, notching 19 times in eight games, which is ten more than they’ve conceded. They’ve scored more than once in seven out of eight, scoring three or more on four occasions. Such stats do not bode well for the hosts, who’ve struggled defensively in recent home matches.

Visitors to move swiftly along

Quite simply, the visitors are the better side, so much so that they look a good bet to continue where they left off when last playing away from home in Serie A. They beat Brescia by three goals to nil. Punters can profit by siding with ‘Atalanta to Win & Over 1.5 Goals’. Atalanta have done a good job of preventing inferior teams from scoring away from home of late, as back-to-back clean sheets against Sampdoria and Brescia suggest. Add in that they’ve scored two or more in seven out if eight, as well as the fact that Bologna have conceded two or more in five of their last six at home, and the above selection starts to make plenty of appeal.
