Arsenal vs Crystal Palace
Wins Arsenal, coefficient 1.53
Arsenal seem to have made the turn lately, after that rather poor start to the season at Premier League. "The Gunners" have managed to win the last 3 games in the championship, keeping intact their gate in the last two victories. Meanwhile Crystal Palace is in a not at all good moment. The visitors have lost 4 of their last 6 matches in all competitions. Given the pace of both teams Arsenal is the main favorite in Thursday’s showdown.
Sassuolo vs Spal
Both teams score, coefficient 1.70
The team of Sassuolo has managed to score in the last 7 games he has played. This rather positive pace of homeowners is expected to continue towards Spal as well, but it is not that easy. Spal has suffered losses in only 3 of the last 15 games it has played, a very promising statistic. Having said that the visitors from Serie B will try to surprise the hosts in the match valid for Coppa Italia.
Atalanta v Cagliari
Wins Atalanta, coefficient 1.22
Atalanta comes as favorites in the clash with Cagliari on Thursday. This is not only due to the differences in quality between the teams, but also their form during this season. The hosts have 9 games that do not recognize the taste of loss and are in 5th place in Serie A. While Cagliari is only 2 points away from the relegation zone from the category. Everything seems an easy challenge on paper for Atalanta and qualifying is an obligation.
