Our match prediction:
Following a come-from-behind win over Torino, Atalanta will be looking to record their first away win of the season when they square off against Cagliari at Stadio Sant’Elia. The Rossoblu are eyeing their first win of the season and they will be looking to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Bologna when they face the Orobici in front of home fans. The newcomers are likely to leave their hearts on the field and seeing that they want this win more than their opponents, we predict that the hosts are going to pick up all three points from Sunday’s football match. Atalanta are not regarded as good travelers; they were beaten by Sampdoria in their first away win of the season and they are unlikely to grab something from the Stadio Sant’Elia clash. Marco Borriello has netted two goals so far and he is likely to prove a handful for Atalanta defenders.
