The best attack in the league against the worst attack in the league

<div><h2>Sampdoria vs Atalanta</h2><p><a href=""><strong>Sunday, November 10, Stadio Luigi Ferraris</strong></a></p><p>Atalanta are more than a football team… As a neutral fan you must love their fighting spirit, you must love their attitude and their determination to win every game and to play an exciting football. Unfortunately, they don’t have a long squad and that is a problem because they are now playing in 2 big competition, Serie A and for the 1st time in their history, in Champions League. Despite winning just 1 point in Champions League (in the 1-1 draw against Man City), Atalanta are one of the teams to watch and bet on, at least in their domestic league. They are sitting 5th in the standings, 1 point behind 3rd-placed AS Roma. They scored 30 goals in 11 matches, averaging almost 3 goals netted in each match. Om the other side we have Sampdoria who are no longer bottom of the table because Claudio Ranieri is doing a better job than Eusebio Di Francesco. Sampdoria won 5 points in their previous 4 Serie A matches, but they still have the joint worst attack in the league with just 7 goals scored in 11 matches.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Why are Atalanta priced at 1.9 to win the match? Simple… Their best striker Duvan Zapata is still out injured while Josip Ilicic, one of their strong players, an amazing pivot with a great shot was red carded last week against Cagliari “helping” his team to lose the match and “winning” himself a nice a healthy suspension. How much does that count? Enough to be priced at 1.9 against one of the poor team in the league. But they still have Luis Muriel, another superb striker who should lead the attacking line with captain Papu Gomez, a talented and creative player expected to offer some nice assists for the Colombian striker. On the other side, Sampdoria have no issue issues, so we expect Ranieri to use his best starting XI. Benched last week in the 1-0 win against Spal, Fabio Qualgliarella, who was top scorer last season in Serie A, is expected to lead the attacking line.</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>They give it we take it. Yes, we are taking Atalanta because they are by far the better side, the positive team, the attacking team, despite missing 2 important players. Sampdoria are expected to have a defensive approach and try to win 1 point from this match. Atalanta will have the initiative and will dominate the match. They might even concede but we expect them to return to winning ways after the surprise 2-0 defeat against Cagliari. What it was more surprising last week is that they failed to find the back of the net, which is unusual for them. So basically, they scored 30 goals in 10 matches not in 11… Not all in, not a banker but let go with the better side in this one.</p><p><a href=";a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Bundesliga Betting Odds"><em><strong>Best tip for the match: Atalanta to win at 1.9 with Bet365.</strong></em></a></p></div>
