The Serie A is back in action with another round of matches this weekend as Fiorentina take on Gian Piero Gasperini’s Atalanta outfit at the Gewiss Stadium on Sunday.
Atalanta vs Fiorentina Preview
Fiorentina are currently in 10th place in the Serie A standings and have not been at their best so far this season. La Viola eased past Hellas Verona by a 2-0 margin in their previous game and will look to achieve a similar result this weekend.
Atalanta, on the other hand, are in second place in the league table at the moment and have been in excellent form this season. The home side edged AS Roma to an important 1-0 victory before the international break and will need to take it up a notch in this fixture.
