Hellas Verona take on Atalanta this weekend
Hellas Verona are in 10th place in the Serie A standings and have not been at their best so far this season. The away side suffered a 2-0 defeat against Inter Milan last week and will need to bounce back in this fixture.
Atalanta, on the other hand, are in eighth place in the league table at the moment and have failed to meet expectations this year. La Dea crashed out of the Europa League at the hands of RB Lepizig in their previous game and have a point to prove this weekend.
