Atalanta vs Inter Betting Tips & Match Predictions 01.08.2020
Stadium: KAtleti Azzurri d’Italia (Bergamo)
A battle for second place which Inter currently occupies, but Atalanta is a mere one point behind. It’s too dangerous to play for a draw because Lazio has as many points as Gasperini’s team. Therefore, a draw in Bergamo and a Lazio victory in Naples would mean Le Aquile snatch second place. All this indicates that it will be a match where both teams strive to win, with the outcome being decided by many factors: for example, the absence of Atalanta”s Ilicic due to injury.
TOP MATCHES OF THE WEEK
Napoli vs Lazio
The southerners don’t have super motivation in this game. Will home ground advantage mean anything with no spectators? Four points behind Milan on the table and eight ahead of Sassuolo – what is their objective? Plus, Napoli has already won a place in the Europa League after winning the Italian Cup final. Lazio, on the other hand, will have fire in their veins as they strive for a last-ditch attempt to secure second place. Furthermore, Ciro Immobile is bidding for a historic goal-scoring record and what would be sweeter than achieving it on a visit to his native Naples?
Juventus vs Roma
Juventus has once again become champions, but not without turmoil. A flood of criticism has been poured out on Sarri and his charges this season. Therefore, the match with Roma, which could be deemed ordinary, will definitely be tense. Nothing will put pressure on Roma though, as they lie securely in 5th place – which, after a poor start to the season, is more than commendable.
Arsenal vs Chelsea
After a double triumph for London clubs in the FA Cup semi-finals, it’s time to play the final. Chelsea enters the battle with the status of favourite: the team was able to break into the Champions League and took 4 points in head-to-head meetings with The Gunners this season. However, Arsenal in the cup game with Manchester City have already shown that they know how to rise to the occasion in important matches. Therefore, one shouldn’t be surprised if Arteta and his charges prove the pundits wrong.
Benfica vs Porto
In the Portuguese championship, Benfica has finished second, just 5 points behind their rival in the cup final. What must surely sting is the fact that they were ahead of Porto for most of the season, relinquishing the lead at a crucial late stage. For this reason, the match will be one of pride for the home team. Also, the squad’s top scorer Carlos Vinícius will be looking to make what may be his last match for Benfica a memorable one. Expect the Brazilian to create fireworks before his rumoured departure to Man United!
