Our prediction for this Serie A match:
All eyes will be on Mapei Stadium – Citta del Tricolore when Sassuolo and Atalanta square off against each other in a highly-anticipated Serie A game. The Neroverdi are eyeing their fifth consecutive win in the Serie A, and we are positive that they will stick to their attacking style of play. Serbia international Filip Djuricic returns from suspension, while both Francesco Caputo and Filippo Romagna are unlikely to recover in time to face Atalanta.
The Orobici, on the other hand, rolled over ten-man Bologna 5-0 to retain their spot in top four. Given Atalanta’s attacking potential, we believe that punters from all four corners of the world can find value in betting on both teams to score. The good news for the visiting team is that Robin Gosens returns to contention after serving his one-game ban in the triumph over Sinisa Mihajlovic’s troops.
Highlighted Player (Vlad Chiriches):
Vlad Iulian Churches had an unusual path to the biggest stage, spending some time at the Benfica youth academy before returning to Romania to start his professional career at International. The central defender arrived to Steaua Bucuresti via Pandurii Targu Jiu and he needed just a year and a half to secure a big club move.
After snubbing a number of offers from Italian Serie A, Chiriches joined Tottenham Hotspur in the summer of 2013, becoming Steaua’s record transfer in the process. However, the Romania international did not enjoy the best of starts to his career in England and he was sold to Napoli after two somewhat disappointing seasons at White Hart Lane.
Chiriches has struggled for playing time at Stadio San Paolo as well, and he will probably need to play on regular basis if he is to realise his full potential. Meanwhile, the powerful defender remains an important member of the Romania national team, having earned more than 40 caps for the Tricolorii since making his debut in 2011.
Highlighted Team (Atalanta):
