Match Today: Atalanta vs Torino 01-09-2022 Serie A
Atalanta hosts BC Torino at Joyce Stadium to face Serie A on Thursday evening. The two teams made identical starts in the new season, collecting seven points from their first three league games. After a 1-1 draw with Scudetto holder AC Milan, Atalanta returned to winning ways.
Gian Piero Gasperini's side suffered a disappointing second half of last season as they won just five of their last 21 league games, which ultimately cost them a place in the European competition. However, they have since made a promising start to the new campaign and will hope to extend their unbeaten run on Thursday.
Atlanta vs Torino
While Atalanta's last two home matches against Torino have been eventful, a 3-3 draw in February last year was followed by a 4-4 draw in April - a match that saw La Dia score twice to save. A point in the last 12 minutes. But Gasperini's men have failed to win any of their last seven Serie A games at Joyce as well as their last four home matches against Torino. Atalanta's win on Thursday would see them move to 10 points from their first four Serie A games for the time. Only the third this century, having done so previously in both 2000-01 and 2011-12. On both sides of the goalless draw with Lazio, Torino scored the most points against newly promoted duo Monza and Cremonese, beating the two teams away by 2 -1.
Torino vs Atlanta
Summer signer Nikola Vlasic opened his account by scoring a goal against Cremonese last weekend, before fellow new recruit Nemanja Radunjic put his name on the scoring sheet in the second half. Points at the top of the table - has expanded his impressive away record to seven games, including four in a row. Torino will seek to extend their Serie A road winning streak to five games for the first time since 1946 when they face Atalanta on Thursday. However, Torino will need to support their defense line if they are to improve their chances of collecting the most points, as they have conceded 22 goals in their last six meetings against Atalanta, resulting in at least two goals scored on each occasion.
