Atalanta continue their quest for a top four finish as they host SPAL in an Italian Serie A fixture at the Gewiss Stadium. The Bergamo club have won their last three home matches, and driven by the impressive Josip Ilicic should be too strong for the last placed team.

Atalanta Form


Atalanta were held to a 1-1 draw at Inter Milan in their previous Serie A fixture thanks to Robin Gosens’ second half equaliser. They will be disappointed not to have claimed all the points having dominated the Nerazzurri with more attempts on target (6-5) and expected goals (2.54-0.73).

Gian Piero Gasperini’s men suffered a 2-1 defeat in midweek to Fiorentina in the Coppa Italia, but are still in the hunt for a top four finish in Serie A where Atalanta have suffered just one defeat in their last six matches. 

The Bergamo club have also won their last 3 home matches, including back to back 5-0 victories over AC Milan and Parma. Atalanta’s superb form has been driven by the impressive Josip Ilicic who has scored five goals in his last three matches.

Atalanta News


Timothy Castagne continues to battle with injury and is set to miss Monday’s match. Striker Duvan Zapata is expected to be given another start as he continues to work his way to full fitness following a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

SPAL Form


SPAL are coming off a 1-0 defeat at Fiorentina in their last Serie A outing. They were second best to La Viola throughout the contest and could only muster a single attempt on target in 90 minutes.

Leonardo Semplici's men have spent most of the season rooted to the bottom of the table. They have suffered five defeats in their last six Serie A matches and are without a goal in the last two.

SPAL News


SPAL's problems have not been helped by an injury crisis with a number of first team players set to miss Monday’s match. Marco D'Alessandro and Mohamed Fares are ruled out while striker Andrea Petagna is rated as doubtful.

Atalanta vs SPAL Head to Head


Atalanta have two wins and as many draws while SPAL have claimed just one victory from five previous matches. Both wins for Atalanta have come in the last two meetings, including a 3-2 victory in the reverse fixture at the Stadio Paolo Mazza.

Federico Di Francesco and Andrea Petagna gave SPAL a two-goal lead before efforts from Robin Gosens and Luis Muriel (2) earned Atalanta the win.

Atalanta vs SPAL Betting Odds


Atalanta are short priced for the win at odds of 1.20. SPAL are valued at 12.00 for an unlikely victory in Bergamo with a draw set at odds of 7.50. Having earned 5-0 victories in their last 2 home matches, Atalanta are priced at 2.00 to earn a win to nil while a -2 handicap is paying 2.30.

Josip Ilicic’s run of five goals in his last three matches has him at odds of 1.83 in the anytime goalscorer market while the first goal is valued at 4.75.

Atalanta vs SPAL Match Up


Josip Ilicic has been superb for Atalanta in recent weeks with five goals in his last three matches. The Bergamo club also have other goal threats in the team with Alejandro Gomez and Luis Muriel all impressing lately.

SPAL have had attacking problems all season and are likely to struggle without top scorer Andrea Petagna. Federico Di Francesco is currently on a seven-match goal drought while Sergio Floccari and Alberto Paloschi are still seeking their first goals of the season.
