This weekend’s Serie A schedule involves match ups at both ends of the table, and these Atalanta vs. Sampdoria predictions form part of the action. Hosts Atalanta are pushing for Europe again this season, with Sampdoria inside the relegation zone.
Atalanta vs. Sampdoria odds
1 – Atalanta to win – 7/19
2 – Atalanta over 1.5 total goals – 5/2
3 – Total goals scored over 2.5 – 8/11
4 – Both teams to score – 13/12
5 – Atalanta to win 3-1 – 12/1
Atalanta find themselves in a strong position to secure a Champions League qualification spot this season as the second half of the 2022-23 campaign kicks off this weekend.
Gian Piero Gasperini’s side play host to 19th placed Sampdoria, with the hosts unbeaten in their four league games since returning to action from the World Cup break, including an 8-2 thrashing of Salernitana at home earlier this month.
In contrast, Sampdoria are sliding into deeper relegation danger, with Dejan Stankovic’s side losing their last three matches in Serie A action. That places Atalanta as firm favourites to secure all three points from this game.
Atalanta have also hit a hot streak in front of goal this month, with an incredible 15 goals spread across four outings, at an average rate of over 3.5 scored. They look certain to at least score over 1.5 goals against an out of form Sampdoria team this weekend and that could be stretched out to over 2.5 scored, based on their recent return.
In their last four games Atalanta have been involved in scorelines which finished with over 2.5 total goals. But they have failed to keep a Serie A clean sheet since October 30th, while Sampdoria has two goals from two away games since the start of 2023.
This contest looks certain to have goals in it but Gasperini will be more than confident of picking up another three points at home, as Atalanta look to push on in the second half of the campaign in the coming weeks.

Atalanta team news
Atalanta are still without two key players through injury, as Davide Zappacosta and Duvan Zapata remain sidelined until February. Teun Koopmeiners is back from a one game ban and should start alongside the recalled Merih Demiral, who comes back into the home side’s defence.
Sampdoria team news
Ignacio Pussetto remains the only injury-enforced absentee for the visitors, but Stankovic is expected to reshuffle his struggling team. Ronaldo Vieira and Valerio Verre could come in to bolster the midfield in Bergamo, with veteran striker Fabio Quagliarella potentially handed a rare start.
