Match Preview

Spal open their renovated stadium against Atalanta in this Serie A clash, looking for their fourth successive home win in the league for the first time since February 1968.
The hosts have three wins in their last five league games (W3, L2), with four of those matches decided by a single goal. Strikingly, they have conceded more than one goal in just two of their last 15 league games, while keeping seven clean sheets in the process.
At home, Spal have lost only twice in their last ten SA games (W4, D4, L2). Once again it has been their defence that has stood out, registering five clean sheets during that period.
It’s a third Monday night game in four matches for Atalanta, who will be keen to get back into contention for the European spots. Just one win in five league games (W1, D2, L2) is a worry, as is just one clean sheet for ‘La Dea’ during those five matches.
Atalanta’s away form is equally poor, with just one win in five trips (W1, D3, L1) that included throwing away a 3-1 half-time lead at Roma earlier this season, in a game that ended 3-3.
Nine of the last ten H2H fixtures ended with under 2.5 goals, and only three of them witnessed both teams score.
Players to watchMirco Antenucci scored a goal in Spal’s last home game, while Emiliano Rigoni did the star turn for Atalanta against Roma with a brace.
Stat attack: There has been a clean sheet in seven of Spal’s last ten SA home games.
Spal have been behind at half-time in just two of their last ten SA home games, while Atalanta have been ahead at half-time in four of their last ten SA away games.
Atalanta have not lost two SA games in a row since August 2017.
