Atalanta and Sassuolo go head-to-head at the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia in what promises to be a high-scoring Serie A (SA) affair. In fact, each of their last six top-flight H2Hs has produced over 2.5 goals, with five seeing both teams score, too.
A 7-2 hammering of Lecce right before the coronavirus outbreak halted proceedings in Italy gave Atalanta a third consecutive SA triumph, bringing their unbeaten league run to five games (W4, D1). The hosts have been one of the most exciting Italian sides to watch in 2020, given that seven of their eight league matches since the turn of the year produced over 2.5 goals, with six seeing both teams score. In turn, the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia has been a venue of entertainment this season, as eight of Atalanta’s 12 SA fixtures held here have featured over 2.5 goals and both teams scoring.
Meanwhile, the visitors head to Bergamo hopeful that they can bring a five-game winless run in their top-flight away H2Hs (D2, L3). But, it will be a daunting prospect for Sassuolo to do that since they’ve picked up only two wins in their eight SA road trips (D4, L2). Roberto De Zerbi’s men will want to avoid conceding the opening goal here, considering that they lost five of eight such away fixtures (W1, D2). However, Sassuolo will have to improve their first-half performances if they look to prevent Atalanta from breaking the deadlock. Indeed, the ‘Neroverdi’ have managed just four of their 13 SA away goals scored so far before the halftime break (30.77%).
