It promises to be a fascinating final few months of the Serie A season, with seven teams in contention for a top four finish. Atalanta will be among the sides hoping to achieve that target, and they will be bidding to continue their campaign with a second straight victory. At present, they sit three points off the top four places, but they could move up to fourth with a victory on Saturday.
Atalanta’s best form this term has come on the road, as they have the third best record away from home. They have picked up 24 points from their 14 games, but they will be bidding to end a two-game losing run on their travels. Atalanta was strong 2-1 winners in their most recent match before the international break, as they edged out Empoli.
Cremonese already face a huge fight to stay in the Italian top flight this season, as they sit bottom of the standings after 27 rounds of fixtures. However, they could move off the bottom of the table this weekend if they are able to pick up just a second victory of the campaign.
Draws have become an issue for Cremonese throughout this term, as they have picked up ten ties, which is the third most of any newly promoted side in Serie A history. Their home form is also a concern in their race to survive, as they have picked up fewer home points than any other side in Serie A.
