Sassuolo vs Atalanta: Prediction
Sassuolo’s hot-and-cold form continues as they fell to 0-1 defeat in Parma right after an emphatic 3-0 derby win over SPAL. With two wins and three losses to date, Sassuolo are currently 11th in the standings, levelled on points with five teams.
Neroverdi are brilliant at home this season – two wins out of two with impressive goal difference of 7:1. They will hope to capitalize on that feel-good factor when they host Atalanta on Saturday night. Rogerio is out for the hosts and Djuricic will be evaluated.
Bergamo-based team came from two goals behind to earn a point against Fiorentina and went on to upset Roma at Olimpico (2-0) on Wednesday, and now they are back where they belong – sitting at 3rd position with the win-draw-lose record of 3-1-1.
Atalanta have perfect record on the road in Serie A this season with three wins and 7:3 goal difference. Luis Muriel, who netted three goals for the Bergamese this season, missed the Roma clash and he’s unlikely to face Neroverdi on Saturday. There are no other injuries to report.
I will let the stats to the talking here. Overall numbers – both teams are scoring (Sassuolo 2 goals – Atalanta 2.20 goals) and conceding (Sassuolo 1.60 – Atalanta 1.60) well above the league average. At home, Sassuolo are netting 3.5 goals per game and allowing 0.5, while Atalanta have an average of 2.33 goals scored on the road and they concede 1 goal per game.
Both sides have some fantastic players up-front and I will stay away from picking a winner and let them do their thing. Domenico Berardi and Francesco Caputo have scored 8 goals combined this season for Neroverdi, while Duvan Zapata got four goals to his name so far for ‘Le Dea’. Even though Luis Muirel is likely to miss this one, Gomez, Ilicic and Malinkovskiy are still there.
