On Sunday, Atalanta take a trip to Marcantonio Bentegodi Stadium, where they’ll face off Hellas Verona in their 3rd match of the 2022-23 Serie A season. Gian Piero Gasperini’s side have not been particularly active in the transfer market however have seemingly benefitted from stability and continuity. In fact, La Dea look a far more organized unit than the side that finished a disappointing eighth place last season and it’s expected for them to secure another win at the Bentegodi this weekend.
Atalanta’s second all-time top goal scorer Duvan Zapata has yet to get off the mark this season and will be keen on his two goals against Verona. The Colombian is definitely the player to watch at the Bentegodi. For the hosts it is worth keeping an eye on summer signing Kevin Lasagna. The forward has failed to impress so far for Cioffi’s side but the manager is expected to keep faith with the Italian who’s pace could expose the likes of Rafael Toloi and Merih Demiral in the heat of Atalanta’s defense.
Atalanta’s first two games of the season have been highly uncharacteristic of their side. The opener saw a rare clean sheet victory which was followed-up with a low-scoring defensive performance from the Orobici. That having been said, Atalanta remain a highly competent attacking outfit whilst Verona conceded five goals in their opener against Napoli meaning that we can expect a game with a high goal-count today.
A poor performance from Kevin Lasagna against Bologna could see his spot under threat from Milan Djuric although the Italian is still likely to get the nod. Miguel Veloso could also be handed a start having returned from injury to feature from the bench last weekend. For Atalanta, Brandon Soppy could be handed his debut this weekend although will be competing with the popular Hans Hateboer for the right-back slot. Jose Palomino and Davide Zappacosta will both be available although are likely to start on the bench.
