Atalanta vs Sampdoria

Serie A

SAM VS ATN MATCH PREVIEW:

The surprise package of last season Atalanta play host to Sampdoria in Serie A tonight at their stadium Atleti Azzurri d’Italia.

The club, which has played most of its football in the lower division of Italian football, did a Leicester last season but barring a title. They beat all the odds and ripped the Mickey out of every prediction to finish the season at 4th in the table. Considering the amount of money and the talent they had at their disposal, it’s fair to say that the six-time Serie B champions boiled the ocean through their efforts.

Now fast forward a season, and Atalanta are still doing wonders in the League. Though they are a long way off matching the highs of last season, a 7th place is still a very good position for a club of this size.

The La Dea can still grab the last Europa League place in Serie A, i.e. 6th place as AC Milan are just three points away from Atalanta in the table. Having won three times in the last four games, they also have the form to match their ambition.

Sampdoria, on the other hand, spent most of the season in the top-6. But their poor form and AC Milan’s resurgence in the last couple of months mean the 1990-91 Serie A Champions slipped to ninth heading into this game. They are on a three-game losing streak, but the manner of losses must be giving sleepless nights to Sampdoria manager Marco Giampaolo.

His team lost 2-1 against relegation-threatened Chievo which was followed by a 4-1 thumping against Crotone and a 0-5 loss at home against Inter Milan.

Just like their hosts, Sampdoria can still finish at 6th and play in Europe next season. But they must start winning matches and what better way to start this than winning a six-pointer game against your direct rival for your ambitions.
