Atalanta broke a long streak without victories in the last round, beating Bologna away. The victory helped to stay in the race for a ticket to the Champions League, but high competition obliges the club not to slow down.
There is every chance to build on the success – in terms of selection of players, Salernitana is clearly inferior, and in general, the guests have lost their form lately.
Prediction for this match: Both teams to score.
