Fiorentina – Atalanta
Two sides with contrasting form and Serie A ambitions lock horns as Fiorentina welcome Atlanta to the Stadio Artemio Franchi on Wednesday for their round of 16 Coppa Italia match. Atlanta currently occupies the last Champions League spot ahead of Roma, while Fiorentina is trying to ensure that they put enough gap between themselves and the relegation zone. This will be Atalanta’s first match of the Coppa Italia season, while Fiorentina will be playing their third match of the competition, having seen off the likes of Monza and Cittadella in the earlier rounds.
The Viola have been on a bad run of late, made even worse when you consider the stature of the club. They come into the match against Atalanta after a hard-fought 1-0 win over SPAL at home in Serie A. The win punctuates a run of six consecutive Serie A matches without a win. They currently sit in 14th place on the table, with 21 points from 19 matches and just 7 points away from safety. Their form seems to mimic that of last season, when the team came 17th, only missing relegation by 3 points; they ended that season with four losses out of five matches.
In terms of the Coppa Italia, Giuseppe Lachini’s side have already won twice: a 2-0 win over Citadella in the fourth round and a 3-1 win over Monza in the third round. At the Stadio Artemio Franchi, the Viola have only won 40% of their last 10 matches and have scored in 8 of those matches. That said, the team struggles for goals, having the third-worst attacking stats in the top 14 sides on the Serie A table. In the last six Coppa Italia matches, the team has won four matches; coincidentally, the two matches they failed to win were against Atalanta (one draw and one loss). Additionally, they never lost once in six home Coppa Italia matches, with only one of those matches not ending in a win.
If not for a Luis Muriel’s missed penalty, Atalanta would have earned a come from behind 2-1 win over Inter at the San Siro. However, it was not meant to be and both sides had to settle for a draw. That point though moved the team to the last Champions League space at the expense of Roma who suffered a 2-1 loss at home to Juventus. And such was their performance against Inter, that they’ll be coming into this match with supreme confidence. Atalanta has been on form recently, registering six wins from their last eight matches, including back-to-back 5-0 wins over Milan and Parma at the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia. However, when the run is extended to fifteen matches, the Orobici have only won seven matches and registered six clean sheets. Atalanta plays on the front foot and, as much as they score a lot of goals, they’re also vulnerable at the back and concede a fair bit of goals too. They’ve scored in all of their last fifteen matches except two, and scored at least two goals in eight of those matches. They’ve also conceded at least two goals in six of their last fifteen matches. In the team’s last five Coppa Italia matches, they’ve won three, drawn one and lost one.

Fiorentina Versus Atalanta Betting Tips and Prediction
Atalanta have not lost to Fiorentina in the last four matches, including two matches in the Coppa Italia. Within this span, the Orobici have scored ten goals, scoring with two or more goals in each match. They also conceded seven goals, which points to the fact that matches between these teams typically end up in high goal-scoring affairs. However, Fiorentina are on a good run in the Coppa Italia, especially at home; they’ve not lost in the last six matches at home. Combining the aforementioned statistics, it is evident that the match will be a close affair with a fair number of goals.
