Atalanta vs. Empoli: Preview

With all of Gasperini’s experience, he was only able to hold Napoli for an hour before the current leader of the Serie A league scored two goals.

Atalanta had lost four of their seven matches and had also gone four and a half hours without scoring a goal, even though it possesses the best attackers in the league.

It is the longest scoring drought in the last four years for the team. The last time they endured that was in 2014. Atlanta started the season with a 10-match unbeaten streak.

The team was sitting high in the second position in October before the World Cup, but they have gone worse with their kind of performance in recent matches.

The only chance of winning a match is to beat Empoli in Serie A. Atalanta manager spent a lot of time talking about other clubs playing football. He stated the fact on how big they are and Atalanta cannot compete with them financially.

Emboli are in the worse form of Atalanta. They failed to win any of the last seven matches. It is the current winless run in Serie A.

Before the poor run of results, Zanetti had steered Empoli to the top ten of the Serie A table in January, but recently the Italian side sit in 14th place with nine points off the relegation zone.

Atalanta’s poor performance in front of goal is new, but Empoli has always been a team capable of stopping teams from scoring.

Atalanta had failed to score in the last three matches at home against Empoli in Serie A.
