Monza will be hoping for a better result after the 3-0 Serie A loss in their previous game against Roma.
In that game, Monza had 61% possession and 13 attempts on goal with 1 on target. At the other end, Roma got 14 shots on goal with 7 of them on target. Paulo Dybala (18′, 32′) and Roger Ibañez (61′) scored for Roma.
It’s been a rare occasion in recent times that Monza have shown defensive steel. It will be a concern for them that Monza have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 6 of their previous 6 clashes, shipping 16 goals along the way. Such a trend might not follow through here, however.
Ahead of this clash, Monza have not won at home in their last 2 matches in the league.
Atalanta will come into the clash after a 3-1 Serie A win against Torino in their last game.
In that game, Atalanta managed 41% possession and 12 shots on goal with 5 of them on target. The only player to score for Atalanta was Teun Koopmeiners (45′, 47′, 84′). For their opponents, Torino got 8 shots on goal with 2 on target. Nikola Vlašić (77′) scored for Torino.
In 5 of the previous 6 clashes involving Atalanta, a notably low volume of goals have been struck between them and their opponents.
The overall average goals scored per game within that period comes to a meagre 2, with the average goals for La Dea being 1.17.
Coming into this contest, Atalanta haven’t been defeated in their previous 2 away league matches.
