High-scoring affair expected between 2 great attacking teams

<div><h2>Atalanta vs Torino</h2><p><a href="" rel="nofollow"><strong>Sunday, September 1st, at Stadio Atleti Azzurri d'Italia (Bergamo)</strong></a></p><p>We were a little scared of Torino’s Europa League playoff matches against Wolves. They lost at home 3-2 last week but they immediately bounced back and as expected they delivered in their domestic league kicking off their season with a 2-1 home win against a dangerous Sassuolo side with Andrea Belotti and Simone Zaza once again being at their best and helping their side to win their 1st 3 points of the season. On the other side, Atalanta superbly came back from 2 goals down beating Spal 3-2 on the road with the new transfer Luis Muriel scoring 2 goals at his debut in Serie A. This is what we talked about last week. If Zapata is not at his best, Atalanta’s coach Gian Piero Gasperini can replace him with Muriel or he can also play both. Before this clash, Torino will travel to play Wolves on Thursday in the 2nd leg of the Europa League playoffs.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Torino’s coach Walter Mazzarri can’t afford to rest some of his key players on Thursday for the Europa League matches so in terms of fitness Atalanta will have a plus. We expect Torino to be kicked-out for Europa League and focus on their domestic league because in case they will qualify in the group stages they will definitely struggle in both competitions as they don’t have a long bench at their disposal. Atalanta are preparing for their Champions League group stage matches with the important clashes from Serie being exactly what they need right now to see their level and improve their balance. They should bring 2-3 more players till the transfer window shuts down, players who can add extra quality for the UCL group stage.</p><p><a href=";a=9feaaf7a-d7a2-4185-974a-81ad171951df&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="" style="width:100%" /></a></p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>We expect a high-scoring affair between 2 sides with superb attacking firepower with creative and skillful players. The battle between Belotti and Zapata or Zaza and Muriel should be very exciting. If you love to bet on the winners-market, then Atalanta should get the job done. They will be fresh, they are playing at home, Torino will enter this match on the back of a tough clash against Wolves on the road in Europa League. The 2 teams are well-balanced and they are almost at the same quality level with a little plus for Atalanta. We will skip the winners-market because it’s the beginning of the season and many things might happen. We expect a thrilling match, the 1st “Alex Classic” of the Serie A season, both teams to score and over 2.5 goals.</p><p><a href=";a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Serie A Betting Odds"><em><strong>Best tip for the match: Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals at 2.1 with Bet365.</strong></em></a></p></div>
