2019-20 Serie A

14-16 July 2020
Selected matches, round 33
Atalanta will play host to relegation-threatened Brescia at Gewiss Stadium on Tuesday evening. Kick-off is at 21:45 CAT. 

La Dea will head into the clash on the back of a match against Serie A leaders Juventus as they aim to continue their climb up the log standings. Atalanta are the form team heading into round 32 having won 11 straight games in all competitions and are also the league's top scorers. 
Atalanta head coach Gian Piero Gasperini isn't getting carried away by the possibility of a late title push, but hopes his team can finish second ahead of both Lazio and Inter who have suffered a dip in form over the last few weeks. 

"I’d like that. Even if Lazio and Inter are great teams. We must also think about preparing for the Champions League. We also need to see guys who have played less. But we are still thinking about it. In a few days we’ll play matches to consolidate our position in the league table," said Gasperini.

Brescia have struggled throughout the campaign and will head to Lombardy on the back of facing AS Roma as they aim to ignite a late push for survival. 
When the teams met in Serie A earlier this season at Stadio Mario Rigamonti, Atalanta claimed an emphatic 3-0 win thanks to goals from Mario Pašalić (two) and Josip Ilicic in what was the first game between the two clubs in 13 years.
