The home side picked up their first competitive win of the season in the Coppa Italia prior to our Atalanta vs Sassuolo betting tips, beating Alessandria 4-1 a week ago. Gian Piero Gasperini will be hoping that score can act as the perfect tonic to help his players recover from back-to-back losses to Roma and Napoli.
Tipped to struggle in 2017/18 the away team have started their campaign in a predictable fashion. A goalless draw at home to Genoa on day one was followed up by a 0-3 reverse at Torino in the last game before our Atalanta vs Sassuolo predictions. That heavy defeat would have surprised nobody – only three teams conceded more goals than Sassuolo in 2016/17.
In the corresponding fixture last season, the teams couldn’t be separated finishing level after a 1-1 draw in Bergamo. In the reverse meeting, Atalanta triumphed 3-0.
The home team are unbeaten in six against the visitors this weekend, and even though three of the last four meeting between the pair have ended all square, Le Dea’s players will have an extra determination to pick up their first Serie A points of the 2017/18 season. With that considered, I’m making a home win the first of my Atalanta vs Sassuolo picks. ATL only lost three times at home from 19 games in the entire 2016/17 campaign – they had the fourth best record on their own patch in the entire league. The last time the Nerverdi actually beat their hosts was way back in 2014. Betway have an array of unbeatable odds and offers to match today’s predictions.
The second of our Serie A football tips backs both teams to score on Sunday. On four of five previous encounters between our analysed clubs, both teams managed to get themselves on the scoresheet. Neither defence is particularly adept, they have one clean sheet between them in total this season, so there should be plenty of opportunities for both sets of attacking players on Sunday. The visiting team will have to improve their efforts in the opposition area for this bet to come in but 4/5 is a great price and one worth grabbing.
