Atalanta Bergamo may continue to dream of entering the Champions League for the first time in club history: an important step on the way to this goal was made last weekend when coach Gian Piero Gasperini’s team beat Lazio Roma 3-1 Winner from the place went. As a result, once a competitor in the race for the premier class was finally shaken off. Nevertheless, continue to be retracted with three, so that in particular AC Milan and Roma are kept at a distance. Clubs ranked three points behind each.

Atalanta Bergamo vs Genoa Football Betting Prediction
This is now at 71 hits – league record! While the hosts, who also entered the cup final two weeks ago, are on a wave of success, last year’s Twelfth of the Genoa CFC is still threatened by relegation. It would be the first gear in the second division after twelve seasons in the House of Lords. However, the Red Blues still have their fate in their own hands, as they are four points ahead of the relegation zone. But the shape curve has been threatening down for weeks: So succeeded for seven matchdays no more victory. Atalanta Bergamo against Genoa is the tip therefore at home win the Nerazzurri.
The Lombards rush from victory to victory in these weeks. Thus, the series of threes now includes four competitive games. This was won only abroad in the fortress at the SSC Napoli and then brought in the semi-final of Coppa Italia in the second leg by a 2-1 home win the first final since 1996. This was followed by another home win in the form of a 2-0 against Udinese Calcio and a week ago was at Lazio Roma 3: 1 retracted. Bergamo has clearly licked blood and long ago understood that this season could become historic. After all, the premiere lures in the Champions League. As mentioned at the beginning, it is an insatiable offensive that catapulted Atalanta into ever higher spheres over the course of the season. On average, she meets twice per match, more than any other club in the Beletage of Italian football. In this context, the Colombian Duvan Zapata, who stands at 22 goals this season and is only topped by the clippers veteran Fabio Quagliarella in the Serie A top scorers, deserves special mention.
The 28-year-old moved to Bergamo last summer from arch-rival Sampdoria, where Quagliarella also kicks, and his loan would probably turn Atalanta into a transfer today rather than tomorrow. If he scored two more goals this season, he would set the age-old record of Filippo Inzaghi, who scored 24 goals in 33 league games in 1996/97 and thus made the breakthrough in his following very successful career with Juve and Milan. With Atalanta Bergamo against Genoa, the odds for another goal from Zapata are therefore also of interest.
For coach Gian Piero Gasperini, the upcoming match is also a special one, since he held the coaching post for many years at Genoa. Quite a great success, because he led the club in the 2006/07 season in Serie A and reached with him two years later a great fourth place, which after almost two decades the spectators at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris once again football on a European level sides CFC could be commanded – although after the group stage in the Europa League was already the last stop.
