Atalanta and Fiorentina will meet at Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia on Thursday in the second leg of their semi-final Coppa d’Italia clash. The first meeting in Florence produced a goal thriller and finished without a winner in a 3:3 draw. Victory is Fiorentina’s only option for progression, as another 3:3 or higher scoring draw looks unlikely.

Worth mentioning: Atalanta are unbeaten in their last nine matches across all competitions. With their recent 1:2 away victory over Napoli they put an end to two back-to-back goalless draws. One of these draws is the only one of their last six home outings not to see both sides scoring.
Despite producing some scintillating football at times, Fiorentina went trough the last ten matches without a win, as their inability to play on a consistent level trough the entire game cost them dearly. The team scored just one goal across the last three matches and Coppa d’Italia is now La Viola’s only chance of continental football next term.
