Thrilling match expected between 2 great attacking sides

<div><h2>Genoa vs Atalanta</h2><p><a href="" rel="nofollow"><strong>Sunday, September 15, at Luigi Ferraris Stadium (Genoa)</strong></a></p><p>The Italian Serie A stopped being a boring league with low scoring matches and catenaccio style, which is a tactical system with a strong emphasis on defence. This season, 12 from the 1st 20 domestic league matches saw at least 3 goals in the match and 12, saw both teams contributing on the scoreboard. Not even Juventus remained a the rock-solid defence they used to be with their new coach Maurizio Sarri adopting an attacking approach. Atalanta and Genoa are 2 of the most entertaining sides in the Italian top-flight league. Genoa managed to keep AS Roma to a 3-3 on the road in their season opener winning the 2nd match 2-1 over Fiorentina in front of their fans. The hosts looked lost last season in the 2nd half of it after losing their star striker Krzysztof Piatek and failing to replace him with another top player. They scored 17 goals in five preseason friendlies, which shows what a great attacking firepower their possess with Andrea Pinamonti and Cristian Kouame being in top shape. On the other side, Atalanta are always scoring goals for fun. They already netted 5 goals in 2 matches, but they also conceded 5 of them having huge problems at their back.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Next week Atalanta will travel to play their 1st Champions League match against Dinamo Zagreb (another great team going forward) so they might rest 2-3 key players, which should help us even more. Luis Muriel and Duvan Zapata have both scored 2 goals each but unfortunately one of them will sit on the bench as they are playing the same role in the squad. With a new coach (Aurelio Andreazzoli) and after a great summer transfer window, Genoa are expected to finish the season in top 10. Stefano Sturaro, Lase Schone, Andrea Favilli, Ionut Radu, are some of the players who will help them to achieve their obejectives.</p><p><a href=";a=4417b7df-a48f-47f3-9b45-f79858bc083a&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="" style="width:100%" /></a></p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>As expected, Genoa are the underdogs despite playing at home and despite recording 2 great results so far this season. They are a tough nut to crack when playing at home and it will not be a big surprise if they manage to pull off another great result and win point/points against Atalanta. Genoa are priced at 3.5 with Betfair while Atalanta are priced at 2.1 with Bet365. The 2 teams have always offered us high-scoring head-to-head. We’ve seen both teams scoring and over 2.5 goals in the match in their last 4 mutual encounters and we’ve seen over 2.5 goals in their last 7 head-to-heads. We expect another entertaining match between 2 offensive teams who should easily cover our bet.</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 in the match at 1.83 with Bet365.</strong></em></a></p></div>
