  • Genoa are yet to win a home match in Serie A this season (Atalanta to win @ ) — 7/5 Sunbets

Match Preview

In our Genoa vs Atalanta preview this week we dissect an attention grabbing face-off between two teams who have been loitering in the bottom half of Serie A since August. But while the home team would have envisaged a campaign of struggle and relegation worry, their visitors on December 11th have been falling below expectations.

Ahead of today’s Genoa vs Atalanta betting tips, Il Grifone have been drawing the ire of the home crowd at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris. Davide Ballardini’s players have yet to find a way to win at their own stadium in 2017/18 and they have lost five and drawn two of their seven league games there. To make matters worse for Genoa, they welcome a team to Liguria who have won on each of their last two visits there.

Atalanta haven’t been pulling up any trees domestically and it looks as though their players have been distracted by the Europa League, a tournament in which they have performed really well in this season. La Dea still haven’t won a match away from home, which is a stat that Head Coach Gian Piero Gasperini will be desperate to set straight sooner rather than later. Gasperini knows that if his troops can string together a couple of victories, it could catapult them close to the European qualification places.

Genoa vs Atalanta Prediction and Betting Advice

Many will tell you that the league table never lies, though the away team dissected in today’s Genoa vs Atalanta bets might tell you something different. La Dea finished in fourth spot in 2017/18 and are generally considered to be one of the league’s most organised outfits. Their domestic results haven’t matched their reputation, but they should still be too strong for their luckless counterparts.

Davide Ballardini’s future at Il Grifone has been called into question more than once already in recent weeks and it stands to reason that any manager who has overseen such a poor run of performances at home will be under a significant amount of pressure. The away team featured in our preview have had plenty of tricky fixtures to negotiate on their travels, which is probably why they are yet to win on the road.

Their recent 100% record against the Genoans, which included a 5-0 win at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris in April, should provide all the impetus they need to go out and take the points again. If you want to back our first prediction, we recommend using Sunbets Serie A football odds for today. Their immense prices are comfortably better than the other bookmakers’.

The away squad featured in our OddsDigger Genoa vs Atalanta predictions are extremely consistent goal scorers. They have only failed to score once in their last eighteen games in all competitions, which really is an incredible run. They bring that cutting edge to Liguria on December 11th.

Although they are yet to win a Serie A fixture at home in 17/18, Davide Ballardini’s men have only failed to score twice in seven matches there. Those blanks were against Bologna and Sampdoria, but they did find a way to score against Juventus, Lazio, Napoli and Roma – some of the league’s best teams.

In six of our analysed clubs last nine meetings stretching back to 2013, both teams managed to get on the scoresheet. Between 2013 and 2015, they actually drew four games in a row. Interestingly, La Dea have kept two clean sheets in total from their thirteen Serie A outings since August. There should be ample opportunity for both sides in our preview to get goals next month. Winner’s odds are the most lucrative way to back the last of our Italian football bets for today.
