Sporting CP vs Atalanta Match Preview and Prediction

Sporting CP vs Atalanta: Sporting CP has finished the last nine contests with seven wins and two draws. In the previous three Serie A matches, Atalanta managed just one point. Sporting has played four games in a row in all competitions, with both teams scoring goals.

The UEFA Europa League draw has reunited Atalanta and Sporting CP, who finished first and second in Group D, respectively. In the competition’s final 16th round, the two teams will face off. Estadio Jose Alvalade in Lisbon will host the first leg on Wednesday night.

In the playoffs’ knockout stage, Sporting CP had little trouble defeating Young Boys, the Swiss champions. They eliminated any concerns by winning the first leg 3-1 on the road and completing the task with a 1-1 draw in the capital of Portugal. They also overcame a challenging Farense test to defeat Benfica 3-2 on Sunday and move atop the Primeira Liga standings.

Atlanta will be considerably more dejected going into this. In the previous three Serie A games they played, they only managed one point. Their decline in performance put them five points behind Bologna in fourth place in the league standings. Only four days ago, on the home patch in Bergamo, did Gianpiero Gasperini’s forces lose to Bologna 1-2.

Sporting CP vs Atalanta: Betting Analysis

During this season’s Europa League group stage, Atalanta and Sporting CP met twice head-to-head and split four points. In October, La Dea triumphed 2-1 over the opposition in Lisbon. In the rematch at Gewiss Stadium over two months later, the teams split the spoils in a 1-1 draw.

Atalanta faced AC Milan, Inter Milan, and Bologna in the last three Serie A rounds. Gianpiero Gasperini should worry about La Dea’s defensive play because they revealed too many vulnerabilities in recent games. The visitors lost to Bologna and Inter after conceding six goals. The Primeira Liga’s deadliest offense awaits them.

So far this season, Sporting CP has scored 66 goals in 23 games in the domestic league. Going forward, in the last nine matches across all competitions, Ruben Amorim’s team has seven victories and two ties. With 2.15 odds, we like to go with the home win.

Another wise choice at 1.61 odds is to back goals on both ends. Sporting has scored goals in all four of its recent games across all competitions. Additionally, we witnessed goals from both clubs in Sporting’s two postseason knockout-round matches versus Young Boys.

In the six games that Atalanta has played in Serie A up until this point, both teams have scored goals in four of those games. When it comes to the Europa League, both of these teams have been able to score in each and every matchup that they have played against each other this season.
