Round 2 of the Serie A is back with Atalanta vs Torino. Both teams started their Serie A campaigns on the right foot with wins in their opening matches. Atalanta vs Torino has the potential to be one of Sunday’s most entertaining matches. The home side will be looking for another win as they hope to build on last season’s success, but leaving this match with 3 points will not be an easy task.

Atalanta vs Torino Prediction & Match Preview

Sunday, September 1 – 14:45 EST – Gewiss Stadium

Atalanta are coming off an exceptional 2018-19 Serie A campaign and as a result will be representing Italy this year in the Champions League. In their opening match, they came back from two goals behind to beat SPAL 3-2 at Stadio Paolo Mazza. Their comeback began with a goal from German defender Robin Gosens. Columbian international Luis Muriel who came on at the 55th minute scored the next two goals for Atalanta which included the game winner. We can expect Atalanta to stick to their attacking style of play this Sunday against Torino.

After a decent run last year, finishing 7th in Serie A, Torino began their new campaign with a win. They fought hard in their opening match against Sassuolo which ended 2-1 in front of their home crowd. They face a difficult task this weekend as they head to the Gewiss Stadium on Sunday. Players to keep an eye on in this match for the away side are Torino’s strikers Simone Zaza and Andrea Belotti who are both threats in front of goal. We have good reason to believe both sides will find the back of the net in this one. Three of the last 5 matches between Atalanta and Torino have ended in draws.
