In pursuit of their highest-ever Serie A finish, second-placed Atalanta BC meets fellow from side Sassuolo on Saturday at the Mapei Stadium.
The attack-focused teams convene with Gian Piero Gasperini’s men on a run of six wins from seven league games, while the hosts are enjoying a return to the peak of their powers – having posted four straight successes coming into this weekend.
Atalanta reached the heady heights of second place in style last week – crushing ten-man Bologna 5-0 as closest rivals Milan fell to a second successive defeat.
As is typical of Gian Piero Gasperini’s adventurous outfit, the goals were shared around the team – with five separate names on the scoresheet at the Gewiss Stadium. In fact, 13 different squad members have now contributed two or more goals to the Atalanta cause this term.
After finally putting together successive Serie A wins for the first time since October, Sassuolo has since staged a sensational second-half comeback at San Siro to defeat Milan, then edged to a 1-0 win over Sampdoria last time out.
That four-game winning run has secured the Neroverdi’s top-half finish, which looked in jeopardy due to an elongated mid-season lull, and pushed them to within a touching distance of Roma in seventh – a final position which would book a place in UEFA’s new Conference League for next season.
Sassuolo vs Atalanta Head-to-Head
Atalanta has an excellent record against Sassuolo and has won 12 games out of a total of 18 matches played between the two teams. Sassuolo has managed only two victories against Atalanta and needs to improve their record in this fixture.
The reverse fixture between the two Italian sides took place in January earlier this year and ended in an emphatic 5-1 victory for Atalanta. Sassuolo was dismal on the day and cannot afford another debacle this weekend.
