In the last round, the club from Bergamo enjoyed a 1-0 win over the total outsider in the league Benevento.

They have the same amount of points and them goal difference is similar, although Atalanta’s is a little better. We shall expect a competitive match between these two because they look in a similar shape since the start of the new season.Torino and Atalanta still have a chance for something better than a midtable finish this season, but they must really improve if they want to achieve it. This game is a good moment to start. Torino has the home ground advantage, but even with some problems, Atalanta remains a very dangerous team to face. Last season they performed in a brilliant way, so they have the confidence.
