Match Preview

  • A 2-1 loss in the last Serie A (SA) round made it four winless games for Hellas Verona (D2, L2), with the last three featuring both teams hit the net. Curiously, their last three matches saw Verona win one half exactly 1-0, whilst the opener has now been scored before the 20th minute in four of their last five SA outings.
  • Verona have, however, won five of their previous seven home league matches (D1, L1), with four of those victories being attained by a one-goal margin – which has also been the case in six of their eight SA home wins this season. Of potential note, is that Verona have scored the opener in just two of their last five wins here.
  • Atalanta returned to winning ways by smashing Brescia 6-2 in midweek. Notably, four of their last seven SA matches have seen both teams score at least two goals (W3, D1), with Atalanta netting the opener in seven of their eight league fixtures since the restart.
  • The visitors have won two of their three SA road trips since resumption (D1), with all three seeing Atalanta net the opener inside the first half-hour. Four of their last five competitive away matches have also featured both teams hitting the net at least twice (W3, D1).
  • Players to watch: Samuel Di Carmine has scored three first-half goals across Verona’s last two home wins. Meanwhile, Mario Pasalič (ATA) netted a hat-trick last time out, with three of his four SA goals since the restart arriving inside the opening 15 minutes of the second half.
  • Stat attack: Verona’s previous two home matches have seen both teams score 2+ goals.
  • Four of Atalanta’s ten SA away victories have been attained by a margin of 3+ goals.
  • Atalanta have won the last three H2Hs, netting over 2.5 goals each time.
