Sampdoria has struggled to get their season started. They’re sitting in 16th place with six points. Atalanta has had a better start to their season. They’re sitting in 7th place with 12 points. A win for Atalanta could keep them in the top half of the table.
“Our aim is to avoid the drop and to do it as soon as possible,” Atalanta coach Stefano Colantuono said, via ESPN FC. “We are playing well and we are being rewarded for our efforts.
“But we must keep on making the most of our good run. We are happy with our current position and it’s good that our fans dream big but we have to be realistic. This team was built to defend its top flight status and not to compete for a European place.”
Sampdoria just got out of the relegation zone with win that has lifted their spirits.
“We needed this win to give the team a boost in confidence,” coach Delio Rossi said. “I am very happy for my players. We have worked hard and although we made some mistakes, we were able to take three important points. Now we need to show the same hunger against Atalanta.”
