Atalanta BC will hope for better performance in this season, as it kicks off its fresh Serie A 2022-23 campaign with a visit to Sampdoria this weekend.
Atalanta had a good start to the previous season, staying within the top 4 on the points table in the first half. However, some rather inconsistent performances towards the end saw them drop down, and they finished 8th at the end, missing out on a European spot by 3 points. Coach Gian Piero Gasperini will be hoping that the players put up a better performance this time around.
He has been pretty active in the preseason market, and in a bid to strengthen his leaky defense, has brought in names like Jeremie Boga, Ederson, Merih Demiral, and Ademola Lookman. The team has lost each of its previous two club friendlies, bowing down to Newcastle and Valencia, which will be a dent to the team’s confidence when they take on the field.
Sampdoria finished at a disappointing 15th place in the last season, avoiding relegation by just 6 points. A mid-season change in coach did little to change the fortunes of the club, as they finished the season with just 2 wins out of its final 8 matches. They were however undefeated in their pre-season club friendlies, and come into this match on the back of a 1-0 win over Reggina in the first round of Coppa Italia.
The club’s left winger, Mikkel Damsgaard has left for Brentford. But coach Marco Giampaolo has strengthened the midfield by bringing in some new names like Francesco Caputo, Abdelhamid Sabiri, and Filip Djuricic.
