Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Mapei Stadium – Citta del Tricolore will host Saturday’s Serie A game between Sassuolo and Atalanta, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. Sassuolo aim to escape the danger zone, and, no doubt, a thrilling 5-2 win over Milan gave them a confidence boost. With no fresh injury worries to report, boss Alessio Dionisi is unlikely to make changes to the team that outplayed the Rossoneri. Andrea Pinamonti is rated doubtful for the match.
The Orobici, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-0 win over Sampdoria. Atalanta are eyeing their seventh away win of the process, and seeing that they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. In their last meeting at the venue the Neroverdi defeated the Orobici 2-1. As for the away side, both Jose Luis Palomino and Davide Zappacosta are out of contention with injuries.
