Rock-bottom of Serie A without a point to their name, newly promoted Monza face another stiff test when they welcome an on-form, top-of-the-table Atalanta to the U-Power Stadium.

Promoted to Serie A for the first time in their history, Monza have struggled to adjust to life at Italian´s top table with 11 goals conceded in 4 successive losses against Torino, Napoli, Udinese and Roma. Now facing an Atalanta side with 3 wins and 1 draw to their name so far, it could be another tough night for fans of I Biancorossi.

Monza vs Atalanta Betting Tips: Atalanta to win and over 2.5 match goals

Atalanta picked up another 3 points Wednesday with a 3:1 victory against Torino, and they will be confident of making it 4 wins from 5 here, with the visitors enjoying much better form on their travels over the past year or so.

Indeed, Atalanta arrives in Monza having won 4 of their last 5 away league matches, including trips to Udinese and Sampdoria this season and another win should be expected against a home side still looking to find their feet in Serie A.

La Dea claimed 13 wins from 19 away matches during last season´s campaign, with at least 2 goals scored in 10 of those victories, and considering the leaky nature of Monza´s defence this season, we expect Gasperini´s forward-thinking side to have far too much quality in the attacking positions.

Monza lost both of their home matches against Torino and Udinese by the same 2:1 scoreline, and we expect a somewhat similar outcome with the visitors potentially having the firepower to score 3 or more. Atalanta have kept clean sheets in both of their opening away victories, but Monza will give it their all to breach a rearguard that struggled for away clean sheets last season (5 from 19 away league matches).

Given all that, we like the chances of Atalanta and an over 2.5-match goal double, an outcome that occurred in 9 of Atalantá´s 13 away wins last season.
