Serie A

Predictions for Saturday 21st May,2022 (59 odds).

Atalanta vs Empoli

Atalanta

Atalanta won’t want a repeat of their last result here after a 2-0 Serie A loss in their previous game against AC Milan.

In that match, Atalanta had 54% possession and 12 attempts at goal with 2 on target. For their opponents, AC Milan got 12 attempts on goal with 6 of them on target. Rafael Leão (56') and Theo Hernández (75') scored for AC Milan.

It has been a rare occasion in recent times where Atalanta have kept a clean sheet. The facts show that Atalanta have been scored against in 6 of their previous 6 matches, leaking 11 goals on the way. That being said, we’ll just have to find out if such a trend might be sustained here in this game.

Empoli

In their previous game, Empoli drew 1-1 in the Serie A tie with Salernitana.

In that game, Empoli managed 46% possession and 16 attempts on goal with 6 on target. The only player to score for Empoli was Patrick Cutrone (31'). At the other end, Salernitana had 28 shots at goal with 9 of them on target. Federico Bonazzoli (76') was the scorer for Salernitana.

The numbers tell their own story, and Empoli have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, letting opponents get 14 goals overall. In defence, Empoli certainly have room for improvement.

Prediction

We feel that in this game, Atalanta are likely to dominate on the ball and be rewarded with decent chances.

However, Empoli won’t find it easy to score a goal of their own - but, we do see them converting at least once as well. 

We’re therefore anticipating a controlled 3-1 victory for Atalanta at the end of this one.
