Fiorentina won their last Serie A match against Torino and could squeeze two consecutive wins in a single Serie A championship, for the first time since August 2020.  Atalanta have made five shots on target in the first two games of this championship: more conclusions only from Salernitana (four). In the first two games of the last championship the Bergamo players counted 13.
