Atalanta hosts Fiorentina in the Coppa Italia quarterfinals. The match will be played on Thursday, February 10th at Gewiss Stadium (Bergamo)
Atalanta is not having the best season. First of all, this manifested itself in the Champions League, which ended for the Black and Blues after the group stage. Things are not so good in Serie A either: now there are more than enough strong and motivated candidates for the top four, and it will be difficult to finish there. Moreover, Atalanta made too many mistakes in winter. Since mid-December, the team had managed to gain only one victory in five matches before the pause for the international matches. And last weekend, the Goddess sensationally lost to Cagliari at home. But at the same time, the club managed to sign Boga and Mihaila on loan. However, Gosens made the move to Inter.

Fiorentina looked quite confident in the first part of the season. Of course, Vincenzo Italiano has a lot of merit in this: the new coach has ensured serious progress of an ambitious team, and this time it really claims European competitions. But in fact, the offensive game of the club from Florence significantly depended on productive Vlahovic. Until the middle of winter, Dusan managed to score 17 goals (out of 41 in total), although he did not hide that he did not intend to extend the contract. It all ended with a scandalous but expensive transfer to Juventus in January. It was obvious that Rocco Commisso was waiting for it, and it was not for nothing that he brought Piatek, Ikone, and Arthur Cabral to Italy in the winter. But will Fiorentina be able to compensate for the quality of the scorer with quantity? A 0-3 defeat to Lazio in the last round showed that it would be difficult to do it.
Atalanta had a wonderful streak of five victories and only one defeat in eight head-to-head confrontations. But last September, Fiorentina managed to beat the Goddess in Bergamo. Then Vlahovic scored both goals for the Violets. Atalanta is seen as the favorite of the upcoming match, but it has obvious problems with the game organization. Fiorentina also did not learn how to play without its top scorer. Therefore, we recommend betting on Under 3.0 goals scored.
