TIP OF THE DAY: Fiorentina – Atalanta: Viola wants to reach the Cup final again, but Atalanta has a say in it too!

On Wednesday, there is also a great offer for betting, and this time we have prepared for you the first semifinal duel of the Italian Cup, in which Fiorentina’s footballers will host Atalanta at their stadium in Florence. The start of the match between these two teams is scheduled for 9 PM.

Fiorentina: Can the Purples Reach Another Cup Final?

Last season, Fiorentina managed to reach two finals, both in the Conference League and the Italian Cup, and to the great disappointment of the team’s fans, Viola lost both finals. In the third-highest quality European club competition, the Italian representative was defeated by West Ham, while in the Cup, Inter was better and deservedly won the trophy. At the end of the last Serie A season, the team coached by Vincenzo Italiano, who generally does a good job at this club, finished in eighth place in the table, which unfortunately does not lead to European qualification. However, as Juventus was banned from European competitions for a year due to financial malpractices, their spot in the Conference League was taken again by Fiorentina.

It would not be a surprise if the team from Florence again reaches the final stages of the third highest quality European club competition, as Viola has reached the quarterfinals without major problems, where they will face off against Greek Olympiacos. The impression is that the Italian representative is a big favorite in this duel. Regarding Serie A, the question arises whether Fiorentina could have achieved more in the current championship, as the club is currently in tenth place in the table, far from a position that leads to qualification in a European club competition.

In the last five league matches, Italiano’s charges have managed only one victory at home against Lazio, along with three draws, but also a loss, specifically in the last round when the team from Florence was defeated at home by Milan with a score of 1:2. The first half of the game ended goalless, despite seeing plenty of chances for scoring on both sides, and in the second half, just ten minutes in, the score was 1:2, which turned out to be the final result of the duel. At home in Serie A, the Purples have played fifteen matches, achieving eight wins, three draws, and four losses. On their way to the semifinals of the Italian Cup, Viola eliminated Bologna, who is playing incredibly well this season, as evidenced by their current fourth place in the table and an increasingly likely spot in the Champions League group stage.

Atalanta: Excellent Performances Lately!

From a team that mostly finished in the middle or lower part of the table, Gian Piero Gasperini has relatively quickly turned Atalanta into a team feared by everyone in Italy. Generally, Atalanta is a team capable of beating absolutely anyone, but unfortunately, they can also lose to anyone. This inconsistency is the main problem for the Bergamo side and the reason why we haven’t seen them continuously in the most prestigious European club competition.

Last season, Atalanta finished in sixth place in the table, earning them a spot in the Europa League, and it’s worth noting that this was indeed the primary goal of the popular Goddess. In this competition, the Italian representative first easily secured the top spot in their group, and then in the round of 16, they eliminated the formidable Sporting team, which is on the verge of a new championship title in Portugal. Unfortunately, their quarterfinal opponent will be Liverpool, who, of course, is the main favorite to win the competition. A somewhat mitigating factor for Atalanta might be that the Reds are competing for the English Premier League title, which is obviously a priority.

This time, Gian Piero Gasperini’s charges are playing quite variably in this year’s edition of the Italian Serie A. With eight rounds left in the championship, Atalanta is in sixth place in the table, and it’s worth mentioning they have a game in hand. With a potential victory, the Goddess could move up to fifth place, getting within four points of fourth-placed Bologna, so the Bergamo team certainly has a statement to make regarding the fight for a Champions League spot.

In their last five league matches, Gasperini’s team has only achieved one victory, along with two draws and as many defeats. It should be mentioned that Atalanta had a very tough schedule recently. However, in the last round, they played one of their best matches of the season, celebrating a victory away against the current Italian champions. That duel at the “Diego Armando Maradona” stadium ended with a 0:3 result. Regarding away games, the popular Goddess has played fifteen matches on the road so far, achieving five victories, four draws, and six losses. Regardless, it’s certain that Atalanta has high ambitions in this duel against the last season’s Italian Cup finalist.

Our Betting Suggestions

First of all, we must note that the matches between these two teams usually produce a large number of goals, and there’s no reason to think tonight will be any different, even though it’s the first semifinal duel. Although, truth be told, it’s possible that there might be fewer goals in the rematch. We highly recommend trying the over 2.5 goals bet, for which the Mozzartbet bookmaker has prepared odds of 1.90.

If we pay attention to the form of both teams, it seems that Atalanta is playing much better compared to their opponent tonight, and both teams have had an extremely tough schedule in the championship. We believe that the popular Goddess will not suffer a defeat in this duel, so we advise you to try the double chance X2 bet, for which Mozzartbet has prepared odds of 1.46.

Finally, it’s very possible that Atalanta, after scoring three goals in their visit to the current champion Napoli, will be particularly inspired in this Cup semifinal as well. Therefore, we suggest trying the t2 over 1.5 goals bet, with odds of 2.60 at Mozzartbet.
