Sassuolo vs Atalanta
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 2 May 2021
Kick-Off at 14.00 UK
Venue: MAPEI Stadium – Citta del Tricolore, Reggio nell’Emilia.
Two of the most in-form Serie A teams are about to lock horns on Matchday No 34. Atalanta travel to MAPEI Stadium – Citta del Tricolore in an attempt to celebrate their seventh victory in the last eight league outings. Nevertheless, it will be anything but an easy task knowing that their rivals have just won four on the spin in the competition.
La Dea have a great opportunity to record their best-ever Serie A finish by ending the season as runners-up. They moved up to the second place after Monday’s 5-0 demolition of Bologna and following Milan’s 3-0 defeat at Lazio on the same day.
Gianpiero Gasperini’s men are, however, yet to secure a top-four finish and a place in UEFA Champions League next season. They will thus be highly motivated to avoid a setback here in Reggio nell’Emilia.
Sassuolo vs Atalanta Head-to-head
- Atalanta will go into this tie as favourites partially because of the head to head record, too.
- La Dea have truly been the dominant force in the history of this match-up, winning 14 and losing just 2 of 20 encounters with Sassuolo.
- Atalanta have scored at least three goals in each of the last six meetings with I Neroverdi.
- Sassuolo conceded as many as 25 goals in the process (more than 4 per game).
Sassuolo vs Atalanta Prediction
Sassuolo have been incapable of keeping things tight at the back whenever they faced La Dea in the last several years.
Knowing that Atalanta boast the best scoring record in the entire division in this season too, stopping them will be equally tough challenge for the hosts here.
On the bright side for Roberto De Zerbi and his men, they have nothing but pride to lose here.
The hosts will also enter the match on a high after clinching four successive Serie A victories. The latest came seven days ago when the team’s talisman Domenico Berardi made the difference scoring the only goal of the match against Sampdoria.
This match has goals written all over it. Atalanta to win & Both Teams To Score just has to be the way to go at the odds of 2.60. Our second pick will be Over 3.5 goals FT at the odds of 2.00.
