Atalanta hosts Cagliari in round 24 of Italian Serie A. The match will be played on Sunday, February 6th at Gewiss Stadium (Bergamo)
Atalanta has slowed down lately. The team still rounds out the top four in the Italian Serie A standings, but Juventus has already come very close to it. The team from Bergamo gained only one victory in the last five rounds. The last games against Inter and Lazio ended with the same score of 0-0. One of the reasons why Atalanta was overtaken by a decline in results and production is an overcrowded infirmary. In the previous game, Gian Piero Gasperini could not count on as many as nine key players. In addition, the club decided to loan out Robin Gosens to Inter in the winter transfer window.

Cagliari’s situation is much worse. The club is in the relegation zone with only three victories in 23 rounds of Serie A. The Sardinians concede an average of two goals per game. But in the new year, they gained two very important wins. They managed to beat Sampdoria and Bologna with the same score of 2-1. Then the successful segment was interrupted. The Islanders left the Coppa Italia, and then they lost to Roma (1-0) and tied against Fiorentina in the championship (1-1). Beyond that, Cagliari parted ways with two experienced players. Martin Caceres moved up to Levante, and Diego Godin, who became a free agent, will continue his career at Atlético Mineiro. The position of central defender will be taken by newcomer Edoardo Goldaniga, bought from Sassuolo for 400 thousand euros.
We often offer to bet on high production in matches involving Atalanta, but now the team is experiencing problems with the squad, so we will try to bet on Under 3.5 goals scored. Apart from the overcrowded infirmary, Gasperini (according to the media) cannot count on Ilicic, who is going through depression. Moreover, the club cannot decide whether to loan Miranchuk or keep him. Cagliari players will do everything to earn at least one point. In 2021, the teams have crossed paths twice. The Black-and-Blues won 1-0 at the end of the previous season, and they gained a 1-2 victory in the first round of the current Serie A draw. It will be easier for Atalanta at home, but we will risk betting on Under 3.5 goals scored.
