Atalanta vs Sassuolo: Prediction and Betting Tips
Atalanta looking for their first win at home
Atalanta showed great improvement in Serie A in the last five years. Precisely, since the arrival of Gian Piero Gasperini. In fact, under the 63-year-old tactician, La Dea finished seventh and above in all of their previous five seasons. With the last three Serie A campaigns being their best as Gasperinin’s side finished third.
However, the start for this year’s Serie A term was shaky with a surprise loss in Bergamo against Fiorentina. In their last match, Atalanta had a fine win in Salernitana that took their tally of points to seven at seventh position. Obviously, La Dea are not as effective offensively as they were last season with four goals in four matches. But Gasperini’s surely will find their touch in the coming matches.
Atalanta Key Points
- Atalanta scored in eight of their last ten matches
- La Dea scored on average 0.8 goals per match in their last five home games
- Gasperini’s side won two of their last five home matches
Sassuolo Key Points looking to bounce back after two consecutive defeats
An away win in newly-promoted Salernitana in round one by Sassuolo was followed by a three-match winless run. Since gaining promotion to Serie A in 2013, the Neroverdi are doing very well. In fact, they finished in the top eight three times. Also, they played in the Europa League group stage in the 2016/17 season and reached the last 16.
Coach Alessio Dionisi has a difficult task at his hands though. The 41-year-old has to bring his team back to winning ways in a tough away trip. Notably, Sassuolo are winless against Atalanta in 12 matches. Moreover, their trip last season to Bergamo saw the Neroverdi suffer a heavy 5-1 defeat. In any case, Dionisi will hope Atalanta’s offensive problems will continue in this match.
Sassuolo Key Points
- Sassuolo won three of their last four away matches
- The Neroverdi had no clean sheets in their last four away matches
- Dionisi’s team scored in two of their last four matches
Atalanta vs Sassuolo Prediction
Atalanta are the clear favorites to win this match with odds of 1.52 at Vbet. Interestingly, the bookies expect both teams to score with odds of 1.57 as opposed to 2.53 for not scoring.
However, looking at the last six meetings between these two, BTTS happened in all of them. Despite Atalanta’s and Sassuolo’s low-scoring performances recently, the bookies are following the H2H record.
As for our prediction, we will follow the double chance and total goals scored combo at Vbet. With both teams’ current form we think under 4.5 is a fair total. Also combined with a double chance of a home win or a draw, is a very probable outcome.
