Atalanta vs Udinese Prediction & Match Preview

Atalanta

Udinese

03 April 2021 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET Serie A Gewiss Stadium

Buoyed by back-to-back wins over Spezia and Verona, Atalanta will be aiming to retain their spot in top four when they take on Udinese in the Serie A round 29. 

The Orobici are eyeing their third consecutive win in the Italian top flight, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. 

Hateboer is sidelined through injury, while Sutalo is a major doubt, and he will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.

The Zebrette, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Lazio. 

Udinese, though, are stuck in the middle of the standings, and seeing that they have little to play for in the season finale, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the Orobici. 

The likes of Deulofeu, Pussetto, and Jajalo are all sidelined injuries for the visiting team.

Team News:

Long-term injury victim Hans Hateboer should be the only major cog missing from Atalanta's well-oiled machine upon their return to action, with goalscoring wing-back Robin Gosens and January signing Joakim Maehle likely to start on the flanks in his continued absence.

Following his Italy debut in midweek, Rafael Toloi should helm the back three, ahead of goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini - favourite to start over recent number one Marco Sportiello.

Colombian forwards Duvan Zapata and Luis Muriel had the opportunity to train in Bergamo during the international period, as the South American qualifiers were postponed, so should be in prime condition to resume their respective roles as starting striker and second-half supersub.

Visitors Udinese are again set to be without Mato Jajalo, Ignacio Pussetto and Gerard Deulofeu, who all remain injured.

Despite their lack of potency in the final third, coach Luca Gotti is likely to persist with an attacking partnership featuring Roberto Pereyra playing just off veteran target man Fernando Llorente.

Offensive options on the bench include former Italy striker Stefano Okaka and Ilija Nestorovski, who was ejected from the North Macedonia camp after a controversial goal celebration against Liechtenstein and did not feature in his nation's historic defeat of Germany.

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

Udinese possible starting lineup:
Musso; Becao, Nuytinck, Bonifazi; Molina, De Paul, Arslan, Walace, Larsen; Pereyra; Llorente
