Salernitana’s players might still be having nightmares about their last visit to Atalanta as they prepare to head back to the Gewiss Stadium on Monday evening (KO, 19:45).

It was a night to forget for the visitors last season as they suffered an embarrassing 8-2 defeat at the hands of La Dea.

With Atalanta discovering some fine goalscoring form in their last two games, another heavy defeat might well be on the cards for rock-bottom Salernitana on Monday.

Team News

Ademola Lookman, Teun Koopmeiners, Ederson and Giorgio Scalvini are expected to return to the starting lineup after being rested for the Europa League win at Rakow Czestochowa.

El Bilal Toure will miss Monday’s game, while Gianluca Scamacca, Rafael Toloi, Sead Kolasinac and Jose Luis Palomino are all doubts.

As for Salernitana, goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa remains on the sidelines with a shoulder injury, while Federico Fazio is suspended for being shown a red card while on the bench against Bologna.

Boulaye Dia returned from injury to face Bologna and is likely to start up top once again alongside Chukwubuikem Ikwuemesi, while Grigoris Kastanos might have to settle for a spot on the bench.

Atalanta to win and over 3.5 goals @ 15/8

After a difficult run, confidence is on the rise in the Atalanta camp following back-to-back wins over AC Milan and Rakow Czestochowa.

A 3-2 win over the Rossoneri was a statement victory on home soil, while plenty of fringe players put their hands up for selection in a 4-0 win at Rakow Czestochowa in the Europa League.

Back focusing on Serie A duties, Atalanta have a great opportunity to make it three wins on the spin when they face rock-bottom Salernitana.

The Salerno outfit crumbled on their last visit to Atalanta with that 8-2 defeat and, with just one Serie A win to their name this season, a similar outcome could be on the cards.

An Atalanta win and over 3.5 goals on the night looks more than achievable and is available at 15/8.

Luis Muriel to score anytime @ 5/4

Scoring three goals in Atalanta’s last two games, Luis Muriel is a forward growing in confidence.

The Colombian might well start Monday’s game on the bench, with the likes of Charles de Ketelaere and Lookman above him in the pecking order.

However, Muriel is likely to be brought on in the second half when Salernitana might be tiring.

That’s when Muriel can strike and, judging by his recent form, it would be no surprise to see him make it three games on the spin in which he’s found the back of the net.
