Match date: 06/01/2021
Atalanta will play against Parma in Bergamo in the 16th round of the Italian Serie A, and these are clubs with opposite trends in form and results.

After securing knock-out phase of Champions League, Atalanta concentrated entirely on Serie A and with 11 points in the last five games climbed to seventh place. Of course, this is not the final goal of club from Bergamo, but at least Atalanta want fourth place that brings a new appearance in the Champions League, and now it is three points behind.

Atalanta looks especially powerful at their stadium, where they have scored 12 goals in the last three matches and beat Fiorentina (3:0), Roma (4:1) and Sassuolo (5:1). These were games that coach Gasperini is looking for, his completely offensive tactics in the 3-4-3 schedule, in which defenders join the attack, and danger threatens from all sides. Already 14 players have scored goals for Atalanta in this championship, and for example left back Gosens already 4 in 11 appearances. The home team only misses the Croatian midfielder Mario Pašalić, who has been injured for a long time.

Unlike Atalanta, Parma is in a big crisis, has three defeats in a row and dropped to 16th place, and with 13 goals is the most inefficient club in the league. Coach Liverani is under a lot of pressure, but it is not his fault because he doesn't have enough quality in his team. Numerous absences were added to that, and the most important is certainly best scorer Gervinho. Striker Mihaila, midfielder Kucka, and two important defenders Iacoponi and Osorio also cannot play today, while defender Pezzella will be with the team, but he is not ready for all 90 minutes.

Many problems in defense and the absence of Gervinho in attack, suggest difficult moments for Parma in Bergamo. Coach Liverani is not optimistic either, saying:

- We have tried to prepare for this game as best we could and as quickly as possible, only having around 36 hours to work with. We have a lot of problems right now and all we can believe in is the work we’re doing. We’ve lost against two direct rivals and so morale isn’t high. Away from the market, this team has to understand that we can all help each other. There’s an older group here, and there’s a newer group, and they both need to join in the same path. Every young or foreign player needs time; there are those that adapt quicker and some slower. Some of them arrived unfit and some injured. It takes time to come together. I understand there isn’t a lot of patience in Italian football but the boys need it. We have 5 or 6 players out. We need to rediscover that fire inside. I will try to choose the best team possible, which can give me a bit more hope.

Also, Parma have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 14 away games and Atalanta have won the last 4 games against Parma. There have been 3 or more goals scored in total in each of Parma's last 13 away games and both teams have scored in 79% of Atalanta's Serie A games this season.

In conclusion, Atalanta is a much better team than Parma, they are in very good shape and full of confidence, and they should win this game with at least two goals difference. Last season in Bergamo it was 5:0 for Atalanta against Parma, and the season before last 3:0."
