When Empoli hosts Atalanta BC at Stadio Carlo Castellani on Monday, they hope to escape Serie A’s drop zone after their thrilling victory in Florence last week. Now that the Azzurri have defeated Fiorentina, their rivals from Tuscany, in a different Monday night match, they want to take down La Dea. The team led by Gian Piero Gasperini has only dropped one of its last five games and will take on the faltering Azzurri team.
Empoli vs Atalanta
Empoli aims to improve on their previous week’s 2-0 victory over Fiorentina. They visit sixth-placed Atalanta at 5 p.m. on Saturday, October 28, and are currently ranked 17th in Italy’s Serie A. Prior to their victory last weekend, the host team was in the relegation zone and is now just one point above the bottom three.
Their league triumph over Fiorentina was only their second of the season; their other victory came at home against Salernitana, 1-0. Out of their five league games this season, they have only scored one goal at home, which helped them win, and only four have been conceded. After losing their first three league home games, they defeated Salernitana and drew goalless with Udinese.
This season, Atalanta has won five of their nine Serie A games. But three have been lost, the most recent being a 3-2 setback against Lazio at the beginning of October. But they recovered admirably from that setback, defeating Genoa 2-0 at home the previous Saturday.
Their home form, which has resulted in 10 points scored, has secured them a high position in Serie A. Their five league games on the road have resulted in three losses and six points. They will be aiming for their third away league victory of the season at Empoli after victories at Sassuolo and Verona.
In the back of their minds, Atlanta wants to make it all the way to the Champions League. They need road victories when they are favorites in order to accomplish it, and they now have it. Empoli’s record versus the Bergamo club isn’t very noteworthy.
They had just once defeated them in the preceding six games played at this venue. Atalanta’s ability to fortify their defense and preserve their goal when playing away from home is widely known. Their last victory was 2 to 0. Even if they aren’t tremendously successful, they will probably achieve at least a little success.
Atalanta secretly hopes to make it to the finals of the Champions League. They need road wins as favorites to accomplish that, and they currently have them. Empoli hasn’t had many noteworthy outcomes when playing for the Bergamo club in the past.
They have only defeated them once in the previous six meetings at this venue. It is commonly known that Atalanta can maintain their goal while playing away from home by tightening up their defense. Previously, they prevailed 2 to 0. It’s possible they won’t be particularly successful, but at least a small win is almost certain.
