Atalanta vs Rakow Czestochowa: Top free betting tips
Get ready for an intriguing UEFA Europa League clash as Atalanta returns to major European competition after a one-season absence. They take on the challenge of Polish champions Rakow Czestochowa, who are making their first group-stage appearance in a UEFA competition.
Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
The last three matches involving Atalanta have seen 11 goals, finishing with over 2.5 goals at each occasion. On the other hand, only one of Rakow's last five matches have seen this conclusion. With the Italians likely to dominate proceedings, we expect a goal fiesta at the Gewiss Stadium. Rakow can be taken to the cleaners by La Dea with at least three goals in the meeting.
Both teams to score prediction: Yes
With two wins and as many losses from their last four outings, Atalanta has shown their penchant for scoring as well as conceding. A similar case can be made for Rakow Czestochowa, who has two clean-sheet wins and blows exchanged in the other two. With both sides looking to start on the front foot, we expect blows exchanged in this meeting and both goalkeepers made to suffer.
Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Atalanta
La Dea have conceded four goals in their last four matches and will be concerned with their defensive prowess against Rakow. The Polish outfit have scored seven goals in their last four outings, while also winning four of their last seven European away trips. Atalanta are a different breed and should worsen their record in this duel. They have scored two goals on average in their last three outings and it should be the case this time around as well. Rakow's travelling record will be exhibited by getting on the scoreboard. A 2-1 result in favour of Atalanta is a likely conclusion to this duel.
Atalanta vs Rakow Czestochowa: Form, recent games, and news
Atalanta has experienced a mixed start to the Serie A season, with two wins and two losses. Their recent 3-2 defeat to Fiorentina extended their peculiar streak of not having a draw in their previous 12 competitive matches. However, they have been formidable at home, winning five of their last six matches with impressive goal-scoring form. Gianluca Scamacca, who has scored both his goals at home and Srdjan Plavišić, known for his European performances, are players to watch.
Rakow Czestochowa preview
Raków Czestochowa, Polish champions, are making their first-ever appearance in the group stage of any European competition. They narrowly missed out on Champions League qualification, losing 2-1 on aggregate to Copenhagen in the final play-off round. Nevertheless, they have reacted positively, winning consecutive league games without conceding, including a 1-0 victory over LKS Lodž. Rakow has a respectable European away record and has won four of their last seven away games.
