La Dea out for revenge in Florence

The Coppa Italia quarter-final just ten days before this meeting between these two sides saw Fiorentina triumph in Bergamo. Their 3-2 victory on Atalanta's home turf was spearheaded by polish striker Krzysztof Piatek, who grabbed a brace on the night.

Fiorentina in fine form

Vincenzo Italiano's side have found themselves just three points from a European spot with a game in hand on the two teams above them.

Last three matches:

Fiorentina 0-3 Lazio (05.02.22)

Atalanta 2-3 Fiorentina (10.02.22)

Spezia 1-2 Fiorentina (14.02.22)

Their win last time out away at Spezia would have meant the world to manager Italiano. His former side conceded a last minute goal to Sofyan Amrabat as his current side sealed all three points.

Krzysztof Piatek's missed penalty was made up for by a close range finish that opened the scoring. With three goals in his last two games for La Viola, the boosted odds for him to score again against Atlanta look very favourable.

Midweek lift for Atalanta

Gasperini's side aren't in the best run of form so far, but will be mightily determined to make amends for their Coppa Italia loss to Fiorentina just ten days ago before this matchup.

Last three matches:

Atalanta 2-3 Fiorentina (10.02.22)

Atalanta 1-1 Juventus (13.02.22)

Atalanta 2-1 Olympiacos (17.02.22)

Berat Djimsiti was the unlikely star of the show midweek against Olympiacos. The Albanian defender's brace saw Atalanta triumph in a tough first leg against the Greek side.

Another bright spark for Atalanta was new signing Jeremie Boga, who scored his first Atalanta goal in the Coppa Italia loss to Fiorentina.

Some interesting trivia:

- Fiorentina have won six of their last eight league games on home soil, averaging 3.1 goals per match

- Atalanta have won only one of their last seven league matches, drawing four and losing the other two.

- Krzysztof Piatek has scored three goals in three Serie A matches against Atalanta.

The Verdict:

Fiorentina's system runs through Krzysztof Piatek up front. He's been the perfect Vlahovic replacement, and Atalanta have looked shaky at the back in recent matches.

His physical hold up play, elite finishing combined with the fact that he takes penalties means that I'm going with the boosted odds for Krzysztof Piatek To Score Anytime with bet365.
