Atalanta 2-2 Bolgona

Atalanta limped to a 4-0 reverse at champions-elect Inter Milan in their last Serie A test and they face another stiff challenge on Sunday when they host a Bologna outfit in the midst of a five-match winning streak.

Pre-game odds and win probability: Hosts are priced as underdogs

  • HOME: 19/20 (1.95) – 51.3%
  • DRAW: 23/10 (3.30) – 30.3%
  • AWAY: 3/1 (4.00) – 25%

Despite their excellent recent run, Bologna are a big price to win in Bergamo on Sunday. Atalanta have won seven times on the bounce on home soil, however.

Giovanni Fabbian is increasingly influential – Photo by Icon Sport

Player to watch – Giovanni Fabbian

Box-to-box midfielder Giovanni Fabbian has been growing in stature and confidence this season and the 21-year-old chipped in with a goal and an assist in a man-of-the-match performance against Verona last weekend.

Fabbian could be a key performer again

Fabbian, who is an Italian U21 regular, has started just eight times in Serie A this term, though he has nailed down a place in the Bologna XI since the turn of the year. He averages more than one shot per game in the Italian tier and Fabbian’s shooting could be a feature of Sunday’s game again.
