Competition: Serie A

Market: Atalanta win

Odds: 4/11 @ BetUS

Looking to extend on their Champions League charge this weekend, Atalanta will welcome Sassuolo to Bergamo on Saturday night.

Starting with the hosts, while Atalanta might have eventually fallen short in their bid to punch a Champions League return last season, La Dea are enjoying a real Serie A flurry this time around. Last seen putting in another stellar performance as they cruised their way to a 4-1 victory away at Genoa, Gian Piero Gasperini finds the mood in his camp at a red-hot high. Skyrocketing their way back into the top-four and looking to make another statement here, the Bergamo-based outfit have won all of their previous five straight domestic appearances across all competitions. Opening February with a remarkable performance at the Gewiss Stadium as they secured a 3-1 win against Lazio, Atalanta have also suffered just a single defeat since back on December 4th. Smelling a real opportunity here, La Dea have continued to gain a fearsome reputation for their performances in the final third. Including a 5-0 romp against Frosinone on January 15th, Gasperini’s men have won all of their last four Serie A showdowns by an aggregate score of 14-2.

As for the visitors, while Sassuolo might have clung to their Serie A status last season, Alessio Dionisi’s side are at the heart of another top-flight struggle. Although the Neroverdi might have been last seen snatching a 1-1 stalemate at home against Torino, that is the only point that they have claimed from their previous four appearances. Opening Saturday’s fixtures holding just a one-point buffer from dropping into the relegation zone, the former Empoli boss has seen his squad win just one of their last 11 straight domestic appearances across all competitions – a run that stems all the way back to November 26th. Facing what looks set to be a stern examination this weekend, Sassuolo should also be worried by their most recent battle against the Champions League chasers. Hit with a routine 3-1 defeat when they travelled to Bergamo for a Copa Italia showdown back on January 13th, we are expecting a similar outcome here.
