By winning back-to-back victories over Empoli and Cremonese in the previous two rounds, Atalanta rekindled their top-four aspirations.
Last Saturday, they had a lot of trouble breaking down Cremonese’s defense, but they eventually succeeded thanks to a pair of late goals from Jeremie Boga and Ademola Lookman.
The good news for manager Gianpiero Gasperini is that his team has scored five goals in each of the last two league games after going without a goal in the previous three.
When La Dea plays Bologna, who were equally motivated last weekend, we have good cause to expect an open contest full of opportunities at goals. I Rossoblu defeated in-form Udinese side convincingly at home by scoring three unanswered goals.
Bologna is currently eighth in the league standings, eight points back of sixth-place Atalanta and ten points back of fourth-place Inter Milan. In three of their last four away league games, Thiago Motta’s team has scored at least two goals.
Musa Barrow, who had a goal and two assists in the team’s victory over Udinese last weekend, is the player we need to pay close attention to.
