Atalanta vs Torino Prediction & Match Preview

Atalanta vs Torino
Italy Serie A
Date: Saturday, 6 February 2021
Kick-Off at 14.00 UK
Venue: Gewiss Stadium, Bergamo.

Atalanta will be looking to make amends for a 3-1 loss to Lazio when they take on Torino on Matchday 21. 

The Orobici aim to keep their Champions League hopes alive, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Il Toro. 

Papu Gomez is no longer an Atalanta player as he joined Sevilla in the January transfer window, but boss Gian Piero Gasperini still has a number of top-class players to choose from.

Both Romero and Sutalo are sidelined with injuries, while Hateboer is a major doubt. 

Torino, on the other hand, shared the spoils with the likes of Spezia, Benevento, and Fiorentina in the previous three league fixtures. 

Il Toro, though, are not regarded as good travellers, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Atalanta’s party in Bergamo. 

Both Sanabria and Vojvoda remain in the recovery room, while Izzo is a major doubt.

Team News:

Last week Atalanta midfielder Mario Pasalic celebrated his return with a goal after nearly two months out injured and could earn a start on Saturday, as coach Gian Piero Gasperini is set to rotate his resources ahead of upcoming cup commitments.

Wing-back Robin Gosens and central defender Jose Luis Palomino are back from suspension, but Hans Hateboer (foot) and Bosko Sutalo (ankle) are unlikely to be fit to face Torino. Cristian Romero has returned after a negative COVID-19 test and featured in midweek, so could join Palomino and Rafael Toloi in the back three.

Luis Muriel partnered Duvan Zapata up front against Lazio, but will most likely step down for Josip Ilicic to return to the first XI.

Torino new-boy Rolando Mandragora could make his debut after a deadline day move from Udinese, but fellow January recruit Antonio Sanabria will wait a little longer, as the striker has an outstanding suspension and in any case tested positive for COVID-19 upon his arrival.

Otherwise, Davide Nicola has a full hand to choose from and should opt for continuity by teaming Andrea Belotti with Simone Zaza up front. Armando Izzo's return to join Lyanco and Bremer in defence - replacing young Alessandro Buongiorno - could be Torino's only change.

Atalanta BC possible starting lineup:
Gollini; Toloi, Romero, Palomino; Maehle, De Roon, Freuler, Gosens; Pessina, Ilicic; Zapata

Torino possible starting lineup:
Sirigu; Izzo, Bremer, Lyanco; Singo, Mandragora, Rincon, Linetty, Ansaldi; Zaza, Belotti
