The Serie A run-in features mini battles across the division and the outcome of these Atalanta v Salernitana predictions will have implications at both ends of the table. Atalanta are pushing for a European qualification spot with Salernitana battling against relegation.
Atalanta vs. Salernitana odds
1 – Atalanta to win – 3/10
2 – Over 2.5 total goals – 8/15

4 – BTTS – Yes – 4/5
5 – Atalanta to win 2-1 – 9/1
Atalanta will be forced to play a waiting game ahead of this weekend’s Serie A action as they host relegation battling Salernitana on Monday night.
Gian Piero Gasperini’s side are still firmly in the running for either a Europa League or a Europa Conference League spot next season but rivals Roma, Lazio and Fiorentina will all be looking to gain an edge on them.
However, despite the fixture scheduling pressure, Gasperini will be confident of securing a positive result in this one, with his side returning to form with four points from their last two league games.
After three successive losses, Atalanta appear to be rediscovering their goal scoring touch at the perfect time, but they will face a challenge, as Salernitana have won three in a row ahead of this tie.
Gasperini’s charges cannot afford to lose any further ground in the battle for Europe and they have been involved in some high scoring games in recent weeks with their last five league games featuring over 2.5 total goals scored inside 90 minutes.
Within that run of results, Atalanta have netted seven goals in their last two games, including a 4-4 thriller at home to Torino last time out.
However, they have not kept a clean sheet in their last seven outings in all competitions, and Salernitana will be confident of at least finding the net in Bergamo, with five goals in their last three matches.
Victory for the home side keeps them in the race for Europe in the coming week, but a defeat does not necessarily spell the end of Salernitana’s battle against relegation, as they could end the weekend three points away from safety, with a vital game in hand.
