Both teams to score – yes

Benevento put together a strong show against Cagliari even if the final result does not tell the full story. Atalanta have been going through a difficult period with a lot of pressure on the players to finish ahead of AC Milan, Napoli, and Juventus. This pressure has resulted in Atalanta keeping just two clean sheets in the last six games.

Luis Muriel to score anytime

Luis Muriel continued his spectacular season after scoring his 21st goal in the win over Parma. The striker has been able to score in three out of his last seven appearances. The likes of Duvan Zapata have also been scoring plenty of goals for Gian Piero Gasperini’s men. Still, a player like Muriel will be able to be the spearhead of the attack on many occasions.

Total goals over 3.5

Atalanta have been one of the prolific teams in the league this season. Even though the team has been showing signs of pressure due to their involvement in the top four race, they still have been playing brilliant football. Benevento’s fight for survival could also lead to goals from the visitors even if they are not outstanding going forward.

Atalanta vs Benevento: Team News and Match Preview

Atalanta

Atalanta were able to bounce back from the draw against Sassuolo with a big win over Parma. Gian Piero Gasperini’s men now have to hold it for just three more matches so as to qualify for the Champions League next season. It has been a remarkable season so far for Atalanta, but the manager has recently admitted an increase in pressure with every passing game. Rafael Toloi is unavailable for the second-placed team.

Benevento

Benevento are in the relegation zone at a bad time, as the club only have three games left to recover from this position. Filippo Inzaghi’s men do not have the momentum required to dig themselves out of trouble. The club's winless run has now stretched to 7 matches and they have managed a paltry one point from the last six matches. Gabriele Moncini and Marco Sau are out injured, while Pasquale Schiattarella is suspended.
