The Serie A rivals Genoa and Atlanta are expected to go down this weekend on Saturday in the Luigi Ferraris stadium with kickoff at 16:00.
Atlanta is battling to maintain a third straight qualification to the champions league being the second with two games to go.
Atlanta is in a fine form at the moment and is likely to take the points. Of the last ten matches played, Atlanta has won eight matches.
Genoa on the other hand has had an impressive play over this past month. Genoa did well to secure the serie A survival thanks to a 2-0 win at Bologna.
Genoa is in 14th place in the Serie A standings at the moment with 39 points. Considering that the hosts have nothing to play for in Saturday’s clash, we are positive that Davide Ballardini is going to mix the squad.
With just two games remaining, the team would want to ride out the remainder of the campaign with no major injuries.
Atlanta has been exceptional in the Serie A and finds themselves in the 2nd place in the table. They took a win over Benevento in their previous game.

Atalanta club news
The Orobici have been impressive in front of goal in the season finale and will stick to their attacking style of play. The only absent player in Atlanta squad will only be Rafael Toloi. Atalanta have a better h2h record against the 5th placed Juventus, and therefore they need just one win from the remaining two games to ensure a top-four finish, and thus a Champions League spot.
Prediction and odds
Genoa has a poor head to head record against this opponent over the year.
- Atalanta to win.
