Our prediction for this Serie A match:
After sharing the spoils with Torino on Matchday 21, Atalanta will be aiming to return to winning ways in the Serie A when they face Cagliari at Sardegna Arena on Sunday afternoon. The Orobici dropped a three-goal advantage in their last league match, but they are still seen as hot favourites to beat the Rossoblu in Sardinia. Toloi misses the match through suspension, while Hateboer returns to contention after overcoming his injury.
Cagliari, on the other hand, remain in the recovery room, with the team recording no more than three wins in the process. The Rossoblu have been struggling to find their best form in 2021, and seeing that Atalanta are eager to climb to the Champions League berth, away win should be considered. All Duncan, Deiola, Sottil, Rog, Luvumbo, and Ceppitelli are injured, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
Highlighted Player (Diego Godin):
Diego Godin is considered one of the best defenders in the history of Uruguayan football. The Atletico Madrid centre back played for Cerro and Nacional in the Uruguayan national championship between 2003 and 2007 and in August, 2017 he signed a deal with La Liga side Villarreal.
Godin made 91 league appearances for the Yellow Submarine and on 4 August he made probably the best decision of his career as he signed a contract with Atletico Madrid. The Uruguayan defender won the 2013/2014 La Liga trophy with los Rojiblancos, while making it to the Champions League final on two occasions (2014, 2016). He won the Europa League trophy in the 2011/2012 season with Atletico Madrid as well.
Speaking of his international career, Godin clinched the 2011 Copa America trophy with Uruguay. Despite playing as a centre back, Diego Godin often scores after set pieces and you should have in mind that he scored eight goals for Diego Simeone’s team in the 2013/2014 season (all competitions).
