Atalanta is welcoming Venezia in the 1/8 finals of Coppa Italia and I have pretty good confidence that this gonna be an easy win for Atalanta. Two teams are in really different moment of existence right now, and while Atalanta's confidence is on a high level, this cannot be said for the team from Venezia.
First of all, Atalanta started with the win in a new calendar year, which is always a good thing for boosting the atmosphere in the dressing room and for the confidence of players. It was a pure rhapsody of the Gasperini team, 6 goals scored over decent Udinese means their usual hunger for scoring is alive. The third-best attack in Serie A definitely would like to prolong their run and get back to the recognizable level of dominance over the rivals on the pitch. Some players will be missing the in the home team, even the best striker Zapata is out due to the corona, but Atalanta have a wide bench to choose from and we all know how those bench player always look hungry when they get the chance - the only way to get coach attention is giving 100% in training practice and playing well when they get the chance in a football match.
Venezia is not looking well in the last period, they lost the previous two games, conceding 6 goals in those 2. I did watch their recent game against Milan and their defense looked weak when defended deeply, and what is the worst, they lacked the bravery to push the opponent higher on the pitch, saying their confidence is really shaken and the team looked "scared". The team from the beatufill city of Venezia is sitting in 17th position in Serie A now, one position above the red zone, so all the focus of the players is on saving the status in Serie A and Cup isn't on the list of priorities at the moment. Important player Vacca from midfield will miss the game because of corona while defender Ebuhei and attacker Forte are absent with injuries.
Feeling, mentioned theory in the video of higher reputation teams winning easier over lower reputation teams (than in other top football countries) and pure football analysis evaluation of two sides filled by the current form and ambitions brings us a very good bet for Atalanta win by at least 2 goals difference. Don't be afraid to use higher handicaps as -2.5 on smaller stakes than this current bet. Predicting 3-0 or 4-0 here.
