Fiorentina v Atalanta: Prediction, Tips and Odds

The Coppa Italia has reached the semi-final stage and the first leg of Fiorentina's clash against Atalanta takes place on Wednesday at Stadio Artemio Franchi.

La Viola saw a six-game unbeaten run ended by AC Milan at the weekend but they have a good record in cup competitions in recent seasons and will be hoping for an immediate response against Atalanta.

The visitors come into the contest after a 3-0 win at Napoli but they have struggled at the Stadio Artemio Franchi, with two defeats and one draw in their last three games at this venue.

Fiorentina v Atalanta betting tips and predictions 

Fiorentina to win - 13/8

Fiorentina haven’t picked up any silverware since their last Coppa Italia success back in 2001 but they came agonisingly close to ending their trophy drought last season, reaching the finals of both this domestic competition and the Europa Conference League.

They fell at this stage of the Coppa Italia in the previous campaign as well, and they are starting to build a bit of a reputation as a cup team.

The Tuscan outfit gave a good account of themselves in defeat to in-form Milan at the weekend and a similar level of performance could be enough to overcome Atalanta.

La Dea have found Fiorentina tricky opponents in recent seasons and they’ve lost two of their last three games at this ground, drawing once. The hosts have won four of the last six meetings between these two teams overall, losing just once, and can seize the advantage by claiming a first-leg victory. 

This competition is a clear priority for Fiorentina, alongside another ECL bid, but Atalanta perhaps have other priorities. A top-four finish and a place in next season’s Champions League isn’t beyond the visitors, and they have a Europa League tie with Liverpool on the horizon, so a first-leg win for Fiorentina looks a good option here.

Nicolas Gonzalez to score anytime - 9/4

Fiorentina’s team selection against Milan hinted that their focus was already on this cup fixture, as key forward Nicolas Gonzalez was named among the substitutes and only made a nine-minute cameo against the Rossoneri.

The Argentina international should be fresh for this game after his limited involvement at the weekend and he looks a strong contender for an anytime goal here.

Gonzalez, who was used sparingly by La Albiceleste over the international break, has a fairly modest seven goals in 22 Serie A games this term but has a better scoring record in the cups - with five goals in 13 games.

The 25-year-old registered an assist in Fiorentina’s 3-2 win over Atalanta in Tuscany earlier in the season and he put in a Man of the Match performance when these sides met in Serie A at this venue in April last season, so this is a team he clearly enjoys playing against and he stands out as a clear contender for an anytime effort ahead of this cup meeting.

Sead Kolasinac to be booked - 9/2

These two teams have been involved in some incredibly physical affairs in recent years and there have been at least four cards shown in 19 of their last 20 meetings across all competitions, stretching back to 2016.

That suggests a few cards could be dished out in Wednesday’s first leg and there are plenty of contenders, with Atalanta defender Sead Kolasinac an intriguing option at a big price.

The 30-year-old has a respectable four yellow cards in 26 Serie A appearances this term and has five in total across all competitions - but he is coming into this clash after being booked in back-to-back games.

Kolasinac was shown a yellow card during the international break as his Bosnia side saw their Euro 2024 dreams ended by Ukraine and he then went into the referee’s notebook in La Dea's 3-0 win over Napoli.

The former Arsenal man could find himself tasked with keeping tabs on Gonzalez on Wednesday and the Fiorentina attacker does tend to attract fouls, as he is fouled on average 1.4 times per-game, so a booking for Kolasinac looks a reasonable option here.
