Would you be surprised to see five or six goals in upcoming encounter between Atalanta and Sassuolo? Considering the playstyle of these two sides and their results in 2020, we definitely wouldn’t. Duel at Gewiss Stadium is definitely looking promising in terms of entertainment and action, but also decent betting opportunities.
Atalanta are most likely out of the title race after being 12 points behind AC Milan, but making it into top 4 is going to be their biggest priority. Sassuolo are without a doubt the most pleasant surprise package of the season, sitting in high 4th place with 26 points. Hosts are marked as big favorites for the win at 1.55 odds.

Atalanta vs Sassuolo Prediction
Atalanta have tried to compete on very high level in UEFA Champions League and Serie A. That obviously taken a toll on domestic results. They are currently occupying 7th place with 22 points from 13 games.
One big winning streak could potentially get them close to the leading duo, but overall results this season haven’t been consistent.
Gasperini was furious after watching his players waste 2-0 lead against Bologna, as the match ended without winner 2-2. Previously they demolished Roma at home 4-1 though.
The current standings are way above expectations for Sassuolo, but recent form is not looking that good. They secured only two wins in the last six outings, losing to AC Milan and Inter Milan, while beating Benevento and Sampdoria.
As mentioned above, we are expecting high number of goals in Bergamo. Over 3.5 goals at 2.20 is an amazing value bet, as well as Over 1.5 goals in the first half at 2.10.
