Atalanta vs Hapoel Haifa PREVIEW & PREDICTION 16/08/2018


Thursday, from 19:00, Atalanta Bergamo will receive Hapoel Haifa’s Israeli visit in a match for the second leg of the UEFA Europa League’s third preliminary round. The game will take place on “Mapei Stadium – Citta del Tricolore” in Reggio Emilia.

Atalanta, 12 goals in the last 2 matches in Europe!

The fact that Gasperini’s band is one of the most homogeneous and most accomplished Italian teams for two seasons this year is no longer a surprise. After humiliating Bosnians from FK Sarajevo in round 2, applying a 8-0 on their own arena, Atalanta has briefly solved Hapoel Haifa’s equation of qualification against Israelis. Imposing a week ago in Haifa with a score of 4-1 for La Dea, returning from Reggio Emilia is no more than a formality but also an extra opportunity to offer it the new dose consistent with the show of their own fans.

Given the circumstances of this game, we expect a spectacular hostile run. In the context in which we do not exclude the scenario of a duel with goals on both sides, we will of course rely on the overflowing offensive force of the hosts whose attack system works so well at the moment that it is impossible to believe that the offensive attempts Atalante will be blocked endlessly by a mediocre defense.

PREDICTION: Over 2.5 goals @ 1.49
