Atalanta will be out to make it nine home wins in a row when they host Bologna on Tuesday in Serie A. Atalanta are involved in a battle with Inter Milan to finished in second spot, while Bologna’s season is over already with a mid-table finish guaranteed.
Atalanta have drawn two of their last three games, but both have come away from home including a 1-1 stalemate at Verona at the weekend.
At home, it is a different story with Atalanta having won their last eight games in all competitions. Their most recent home fixture resulted in a 6-2 win over Brescia. Luis Muriel and Josip Ilicic will miss this game for Atalanta.
Bologna suffered a heavy 5-1 defeat at the hands of AC Milan on Saturday to make it four games without a win. Bologna sit in 10th place in the Serie A standings but have seemingly signed off for the season having lost at home to Sassuolo and drawn with Parma and Napoli in the last four games. Bologna will be without Jerdy Schouten and Mattia Bani for the trip to face Atalanta in Bergamo.
Atalanta are continuing to score for fun, notching 94 goals and hunting down the three-figure goal total. Bologna have already signed off for the season judged on their results of the past two weeks, and this looks like it could get ugly again for the visitors following a 5-1 defeat at the weekend. Atalanta look good to cover the handicap in this one with goals expected against a Bologna side that has already signed off for the season.
