  • KO: 14:00 GMT / 15:00 CET
  • Venue: Gewiss Stadium (Bergamo)

Following a sensational Serie A victory against Salernitana, Atalanta can continue their Coppa Italia run when they host Spezia at the Gewiss Stadium.

Scoring the visitors with a stunning 8:2 win, Atalanta were the first team to score eight goals in an Italian top-flight match since Inter won by the same scoreline against Padova in 1996.

Still, despite that handsome victory, the Bergamo-based side should expect a tough test on Thursday with visiting Spezia unbeaten in their last five league matches.

Atalanta vs Spezia Betting Tips: Atalanta and BTTS

While still very much in a relegation dogfight, Spezia arrives in Bergamo with raised spirits following a fine 1:0 win at Torino. That victory made it nine points from five unbeaten league matches since the start of November. Prior to their recent run, Spezia had taken just nine points from their opening 13 league matches. Their recent unbeaten sequence also included a 2:2 draw with Atalanta, having led by two until the final quarter of the match.

Losing their opening seven away league matches of the season while failing to score in the first six, Spezia seem to have turned a corner. Backing up an excellent, albeit losing, performance at Milan, Spezia have won both of their last two on the road against Torino and Verona. 

Still, with Atalanta scoring eight at the weekend, the visitors will know they are in for a tough night at the office against La Dea. Gian Piero Gasperini´s side have now scored 14 goals in their four most recent matches.

Indeed, goals have to be expected in this match, with each of the last four meetings between these sides seeing BTTS and over 2.5 goals scored. 19 goals were scored in those four matches, with La Dea claiming 3:1 and 5:2 victories in their last two home matches against the visitors. 

Given the recent performances of both sides, we expect BTTS in a likely entertaining and high-scoring match where Atalanta should certainly have more than enough quality to book their safe passage into the next phase of the Coppa Italia.

Atalanta Team News

Atalanta have a strong squad to choose from with Luis Muriel and Duvan Zapata both available again. However, Gasperini seems unlikely to make too many alterations to his winning XI, although with a big game in Turin this weekend, the veteran coach may look to rest one or two of his star men.
