            Atalanta vs Fiorentina: Preview, Prediction & Betting Tips

            Atalanta host Fiorentina in a rescheduled fixture, which will also be the final Serie A game of the season.

            Date: 02/06/24

            Kick-off time: 17:00

            Venue: Gewiss Stadium

            This game was supposed to be played in mid-March, however was postponed before kick-off due to Fiorentina CEO Joe Barone taking ill and sadly later passing away. Due to the European commitments of both sides, the fixture was not able to be played until this upcoming weekend, following the conclusion of the season. Atalanta come into this one as Europa League champions, with Fiorentina looking to follow suit with a Europa Conference League title in midweek.

            With this being the final game of the Serie A campaign, all of the positions are already determined. This includes both Atalanta and Fiorentina, who cannot move up or down in the table regardless of the result. Atalanta will finish fourth, following their win against Torino last weekend. They are two points ahead of fifth place Bologna, qualifying for next season’s Champions League via the Europa League and their league position. Fiorentina will end the year in eighth behind Lazio, and four points ahead of Torino.

            The hosts have enjoyed plenty of success in front of goal lately, scoring at least twice in each of their last seven league games. They have multiple attacking threats, with the trio of Gianluca Scamacca, Teun Koopmeiners and Charles De Ketelaere combining for 34 goals this season. Ademola Lookman is also on fire, after scoring a hat-trick in the Europa League final and netting in their most recent game. Fiorentina may have a difficult time of keeping them out, as they have not kept a clean sheet in eight games in all competitions. However, they have scored 15 in their last six league fixtures, meaning they will be a threat themselves. Nicolas Gonzalez is their leading goalscorer with 11, whilst Giacomo Bonaventura has also contributed with eight.

            Since 2021, these two sides have met six times in Serie A. There has been little to split them with Fiorentina winning three and Atalanta victorious on two occasions. The reverse fixture earlier this season ended 3-2 in Fiorentina’s favour. Koopmeiners gave the visitors the lead, but it was turned around before half-time by Bonaventura and Lucas Martinez Quarta. Lookman equalised but Christian Kouame scored the winner.

            Form Guide

            Atalanta

            In their last five games, Atalanta have won four and lost one. It has been an excellent run of form for Atalanta in which they took part in two cup finals and secured Champions League qualification for next season. This run started with a 2-1 win over Roma. They raced into a 2-0 lead less than midway through the first half, with Charles De Ketelaere netting two goals in as many minutes. Lorenzo Pellegrini halved the deficit in the second half, but the visitors were unable to mount a comeback.

            Their first opportunity for a trophy came in the Coppa Italia final last week. However, they went home empty-handed as Juventus prevailed 1-0. The only goal of the game came in the fourth minute through Dusan Vlahovic. They then took a trip to Lecce, in which they won 2-0. De Ketelaere and Scamacca scored two quick-fire goals in the second half.

            They enjoyed success in the Europa League final in Dublin, as they faced the unbeaten Bayer Leverkusen. Incredibly, they came out 3-0 winners in what was a comfortable victory. Lookman was the star of the show as he scored a hat-trick to win his side the trophy. Their most recent game and penultimate fixture in the Serie A season was at home to Torino last weekend. They won 3-0 with goals from Scamacca, Lookman and Mario Pasalic.

            Fiorentina

            In their last five games, Fiorentina have won two, drawn two and lost one. It has been mixed form for Fiorentina, though they were able to book their place in the Europa Conference League final. The first game in this run resulted in their only defeat, as they lost 2-1 at Verona. The hosts went ahead through a Darko Lazivic penalty, but La Viola equalised with a goal from Gaetano Castrovilli just before the break. Tijjani Noslin scored the winner for Verona 15 minutes after the restart.

            Attention then shifted to European action with the second leg of the Conference League semi-final against Club Brugge. After winning the first leg 3-2 at home, they travelled to Belgium with an advantage. They went behind on the night to a Hans Vanaken opener, but they managed to avoid extra-time as Lucas Beltran equalised from the spot with five minutes to go. They returned to league action with a 2-1 win against Monza. They went behind early on, but recovered with goals from Nicolas Gonzalez and Arthur Melo either side of half-time.

            They then faced the defending champions Napoli at home and drew 2-2. Once again they went behind early to an Amir Rrahmani strike, though turned it around before half-time through Cristiano Biraghi and M’bala Nzola. Their most recent game was a trip to Cagliari which they won 3-2. There was plenty of late drama in this one after they took a one-goal lead into the break. Alessandro Deiola and Kingstone Mutandwa put them in front. Gonzales levelled it in the 89th minute, before Melo scored the winner 13 minutes into stoppage time from the penalty spot. Before they take on Atalanta, they will play the Europa Conference League final in midweek against Olympiakos.

            Footy Accumulators Prediction

            Atalanta come into this one fresh off European triumph, and Fiorentina will hope to follow suit before they face off. There should not be much to split these two teams, but we expect Atalanta to take all three points in this one to end the season – Atalanta 2-1 Fiorentina
