Atalanta will travel to Empoli this Sunday in a crucial encounter as both sides try to move up the table in what seems to be a poor start to their Serie A campaign this season.

Atalanta started the season on a very bad form from their usual standards, as they won just two of their first four games by under 2.5 Goals and considering nobody in Italy has come close to their goalscoring record in recent times, it was slightly concerning.

However, since losing to Fiorentina 2-1 back in early September, Atalanta have found a little bit more form and began to edge away ever so slowly on the top four.

Presently, Atalanta are 8th in the table but can get back to the top with a few wins.

What will give Atalanta further hope as well is the fact Juventus are level on points with them and simply ahead of them by merely goal difference in the table. So, should they win here, they can begin to build towards the top end again.

However, they have slipped back into the losing form that has kept them in mid-table, as they lost 3-2 to the ever-impressive AC Milan, not long after they drew with Inter and beat Young Boys in the Champions League.

As for Empoli, they have started off relatively well in their own right to this new campaign, especially considering this is their return to Serie A after a campaign in Serie B.

Empoli last 5 matches

They have lost four of their last seven games so far, but with three wins and no draws, their nine points is certainly commendable for a newly-promoted side.

In fact, with a win here, they can even get past Atalanta and maybe even Juventus, should they lose to Roma this Sunday.

Empoli have also only lost one game in their past four fixtures, as they beat Cagliari 1-0, Bologna 4-2 and Ternana 2-1.

Despite their decent form, Sportsgetto expects the attacking force of Atalanta to be too much for Empoli to contain and so we’re backing Atalanta to win here with over 2.5 goals which is 2.09 Odds on 1XBET. REGISTER WITH 1XBET
