Head to Head


Atalanta have a 3-1 advantage against Sporting CP with 2 draws in 6 matches.

They last met in October, Atalanta winning 2-1 in Lisbon where Giorgio Scalvini and Matteo Ruggeri scored in the first half.

Atalanta Form


Atalanta have been inconsistent in recent months, failing to win consecutive games since late September.

Gian Piero Gasperini’s side haven’t lost in the Europa League where they have a three point lead at the top of Group D. They have won three with one draw, 2-2 at Sturm Graz where they conceded a late penalty.

The Italian have failed to win in their previous three matches in Serie A, dropping to seventh on the table. They lost 2-1 against Napoli on Saturday, Ademola Lookman equalising in the second half before Marco Carnesecchi made an error late on which was punished. 

Atalanta Injuries


Full-back Davide Zappacosta has an ankle sprain and striker El Bilal Touré is out with hamstring injury.

Sporting CP Form


Sporting CP have had a strong start to the season, their first defeat coming against Atalanta in the Europa League. They beat Rakow Czestochowa 2-1 in their previous game in Group D where they sit in second spot.

Rúben Amorim’s side were the only unbeaten team in the Primeira Liga before an unlucky 2-1 defeat at Benfica. Viktor Gyökeres opened the scoring before Gonçalo Inácio was sent off in the 51st minute, Sporting conceding two goals in added time.

The Lions returned to action by destroying fourth-division club Dumiense in the Portuguese Cup. Paulinho hit a hat-trick with Luis Neto, Trincão, Sebastian Coates, Nuno Santos and Gyökeres on target.

Sporting CP Injuries


Right-back Iván Fresneda is out with a shoulder injury.

Verdict

Atalanta haven’t won in three matches in Serie A which could be their priority in the coming weeks. Sporting CP can secure an important point in the Europa League.
