Atalanta BC vs. Salernitana Preview – Prediction, Team news, Lineups

Atalanta BC, gaining momentum, hosts bottom-placed Salernitana at Gewiss Stadium in a Serie A encounter.

Match Preview

After a week of stellar performances, Atalanta seems rejuvenated. A dramatic 3-2 victory against AC Milan and a comprehensive 4-0 win over Rakow Czestochowa in Europe signify their resurgence. They now aim to capitalize on this momentum in the league.

Sitting eighth with 23 points, Atalanta eyes the top four, with just two points separating them and fourth-placed Roma. This fixture presents an opportunity for them to climb further before an impending showdown with Bologna.

Salernitana, however, languishes at the bottom, four points adrift of safety. Despite securing their first win against Lazio under Filippo Inzaghi’s stewardship, they’ve managed only five points in seven games since.

Their goal-scoring woes continue, managing a mere 11 goals in Serie A this season.

Nonetheless, Salernitana managed a victory over Atalanta late last season but faces a formidable challenge against a revitalized Atalanta side this time.
