20120930 Serie A Week 6 Atalanta - Torino

MATCH PREVIEW
Serie A Week 6 - 30 Sep 2012 (14.00 UK)
Atalanta - Torino
Stadio Atleti Azzurri d'Italia

Having eradicated points deductions to sit in mid-table, both Atalanta and Torino will look to confirm competitive starts to the season.

On Wednesday Coach Stefano Colantuono celebrated his 400th professional match on the bench. There was no happy ending despite Atalanta taking the lead in Catania, as they left Sicily with a 2-1 defeat. Maxi Moralez opened the scoring before a home side fightback ruined the Orobici's three game unbeaten run.

Colantuono praised Catania afterwards, and though he didn't believe La Dea had playd a bad match, felt they had some aspects to work on when they welcome Torino.

A long injury list sees Guido Marilungo, Ivan Radovanovic, Ferreira Pinto, Daniele Capelli, Carlos Carmona, Davide Biondini and Gianpaolo Bellini all miss out. Guglielmo Stendardo is in doubt to feature.

Toro did everything but score versus Udinese in midweek. They created the better chances in the 0-0 draw, but saw the ball crash against the woodwork on three occasions. It was their third draw of the campaign.

Coach Giampiero Ventura was happy with the Granata’s display, claiming they deserved to grab all three points. He will also be happy with their defensive efforts, given that they have conceded just three goals in the first five matches.

Experienced defender Salvatore Masiello, plus midfielder Sergiu Suciu and winger Walter Birsa, are sidelined through injury. Ventura is set to continue with a trident attack led by captain Rolando Bianchi.

Matches between the two have historically been evenly poised. The Nerazzurri have won 12 times compared to Torino’s 13. There have also been 19 draws.

Keep an eye on: German Denis (Atalanta) – Far from his swashbuckling form of 2011-12, Denis has scored just once to date. He will be eager to add to his tally, with Atalanta not exactly prolific. They have not scored more than one goal per game in the opening five encounters.

Form guide: Atalanta (L D W W L) Torino (D W L D D)

Last season: Not played

Stat fact: Since 2000, Torino have triumphed just once in Bergamo in all competitions. That win came in Serie A during 2006-07, when it finished 2-1.

Atalanta (probable): Consigli; Ferri, Lucchini, Manfredini, Brivio; Schelotto, Cigarini, Cazzola, Moralez; De Luca, Denis

Torino (probable): Gillet; Darmian, Glik, Ogbonna, D’Ambrosio; Basha, Brighi, Vives; Stevanovic, Bianchi, Santana

1-5

Awesome result! Atalanta is not Napoli. But an impressive away win is always worth celebrating.

Nice being in the top half of the table.
