Atalanta vs Sporting CP: top free betting tips
Atalanta play host to Sporting CP in Round 5 of the Europa League on Thursday, 30 November. The Black and Blues come into the match on the back of a defeat against Napoli in Serie A while the Lions defeated Dumiense in Taca De Portugal.
Match result prediction: Atalanta to win
Atalanta are currently struggling in Serie A with three winless games. However, the Black and Blues have had a dominant display in the Europa League with three wins in four rounds.
On the other hand, Sporting CP also found three victories in the last five away fixtures in all competitions. However, Atalanta will be much more confident in the upcoming fixture after defeating Sporting in away fixtures in the Europa League this season. Hence, we back Atalanta to have the upper hand and save three points in this game.
Both teams to score prediction: Yes
Atalanta have found the back of the net in all of their last five fixtures while conceding goals in three games. On the other hand, Sporting CP also notched goals in each of the four Europa League fixtures this season.
But the Lions were unable to keep a single clean sheet in that course. Furthermore, the only H2H meeting between these two sides has also finished with a BTTS outcome. Therefore, we can expect goals from both ends of the field in this game.
Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Atalanta
Sporting CP were limited to scoring just one goal in two of the three most recent fixtures in the Europa League. Meanwhile, Atalanta have notched multiple goals in three of the four EL matches.
On the defensive end, the Black and Blues have conceded only five goals in the previous five matches. The previous meeting between these two sides ended with a 2-1 lead for Atalanta and we expect them to repeat the result in this game as well.
