Saturday fixture at the Stadio Olimpico di Torino – 8:45pm GMT.
Torino will be glad of a home fixture in the opening leg against Atalanta this season. This would be a psychological advantage ahead of the return leg.
It’s time for Torino to make a great season happen
During last season, Torino reached the 17th position in the standings after a hard year. Regarding this season, they’ll try to improve their records with hard work to meet the requirements of the Serie A.
In spite of the fact that last year the team struggled with a negative record of 69 – 50, now it’s time to focus on targets and perform better at all levels.
Torino may have to resort to second choice players, given the number of first choice players that are now unavailable through injury, illness or suspension.
New season for Atalanta; they will try to reach new heights
During last season, Atalanta reached the 3rd position in the standings after a hard year. For this season, they will have to make an extra effort if they want to be on top of the Serie A.
Let’s not forget that the team ended the season with a 90 and 47 in goals scored/conceded; that is the definition of a good year.
Atalanta’s ever growing list of players missing due to injury or illness to be a concern for Gian Piero Gasperini, ahead of this Saturday’s fixture against their opponents.
Torino v Atalanta – Head-to-Head.
These two teams have already met each other 40 times with the record being 15 victories and 12 draws for Torino. In their most recent meeting of this fixture was February 2021 and the score line ended up with a 3-3 draw. The Serie A starts with the eyes on these teams. Which will win? Could it be Torino? Or Atalanta? Maybe both? The odds of both teams scoring a goal are high (63.29%). It will be an electric football show.
