Atalanta vs Brescia Preview, Betting Tips and Odds

Atalanta vs Brescia predictions ahead of this clash in Serie A on Tuesday night.

Atalanta continued their great form at the weekend, while they almost claimed a 10th successive victory. La Dea went to champions Juventus and led twice, but a late equaliser has all but ended any outside hopes of winning the title. However, their chances of moving into the top two were boosted, as they gained a point on second-placed Lazio.

Now la Dea has a great chance to continue their brilliant form. With 25 points from a possible 27, no one in Serie A can match the hosts at the minute. Meanwhile, only SPAL has a worse record across the last eight games than Brescia. They are heading straight for Serie B, so this is likely to be an incredibly one-sided affair.

Blunt Brescia look short on the road
Brescia is a step closer to the drop following Saturday’s 3-0 hammering at home to Roma. Their inability to make the breakthrough in that clash doesn’t bode well for them here. The visitors have scored just 28 times in Serie A this term, while in their away trips they’ve produced just 11 goals at an average of 0.69 per game. With Mario Balotelli still not featuring, they’ve lost someone who could make an impact in the final third.

Brescia has failed to score on five occasions on the road this term. Each of those five have seen them lose to one of Serie A’s top eight. They were recently blown away 6-0 at Inter Milan, while their weekend loss to Roma doesn’t exactly help their case ahead of this one. Now they head to an Atalanta side who don’t just dominate the game in terms of possession and chances, but their expansive style pulls players out of position. That has contributed massively to the fact that Atalanta has conceded just three counter-attack goals all season, despite their risk-taking.

Atalanta’s defence due to some praise
While the hosts have caught the eye for their attacking returns this season, their defending is worthy of credit too. Our predictions often focus on their attacking talent, but here we expect Atalanta’s defence to play a crucial role in pushing them towards another victory. On one hand, they are playing a side with a limited attacking threat, but la Dea have already been making strides at the back.

Atalanta had kept three successive clean sheets in their matches before facing off with Juve. They looked defensively sound in that game too, conceding from two penalties by Cristiano Ronaldo. Their defence should come out on top against this Brescia outfit, who look out of their depth at this level. A home win to nil is our first pick on this one, while we see the hosts recording a comfortable win. Brescia has conceded 12 goals across their last four games. Meanwhile, Atalanta has averaged 2.75 goals per game at home. As a result, we’re backing a 3-0 home win in our correct score prediction.
