Betting tips Atalanta vs Empoli

Coming into this decisive last match, Atalanta sits outside of European qualification, down in 8th, level on points with Fiorentina (but trailing in the h2h record) and 1 point behind Roma in 6th place.

Still, the hosts remain optimistic that 3 points here could yet be enough to secure Europa Conference League football with Roma facing a tricky away match at Torino ahead of their ECL final this coming week. Fiorentina, for their part, faces another big test when they welcome Juventus to Florence.

Unfortunately, Atalanta´s home form has been dismal this year with La Dea entering this fixture having won only 4 matches at the Gewiss all season. More recently, Atalanta have won just 1 of their last 10 on home soil and none of the last 5.

However, goals at both ends have been the reliable play in Atalanta home matches with 13 of their last 17 including each of the last 4 seeing that outcome and while the hosts are big favourites, Empoli have, despite recent struggles, proved their capability in scoring against the league´s biggest teams. 

The visitors, down in 14th but safe from the threat of relegation, have struggled on the road, failing to win any of their last 10 while they have lost each of their last 4 including a 4:2 loss at Inter despite leading 2:0 in the first half. Indeed, a shock 3:2 win at home to Napoli is the only win the visitors have enjoyed in their last 19 league outings. Empoli have also seen BTTS in each of their last 5 league matches and we expect a similar outcome here even if Atalanta should surely pick up a must-need win.

Atalanta won 4:1 when these sides met earlier in the season and while their home form has been dismal, Atalanta should still be expected to have enough quality to end their miserable record at the Gewiss but we also expect both to score with the home side offering little value at just 1.22 odds to claim the spoils. 

Final score 3:1
