Kick-off: 1930, 26/05/2019
Stadium: Atleti Azzurri d’Italia
Atalanta can clinch a place in next season’s Champions League by beating Sassuolo on home turf in Serie A on Sunday.
La Dea have already thrashed the same opponents 6-2 on the road this season and third place in the table beckons if they can do the double over I Neroverdi at Atleti Azzurri d’Italia.
The visitors are playing well enough to make their presence felt, but 27/20 for a home win and both teams to score is our opening Atalanta vs Sassuolo prediction.
A Look At Atalanta’s Betting Odds
Atalanta stretched their unbeaten run in Italy’s top flight to 12 games when picking up a precious point at Juventus last weekend.
Mario Mandzukic cancelled out Josip Ilicic’s first-half opener late on, but that result left them level on points with Inter and one ahead of AC Milan.
Gian Piero Gasperini said: “Clearly, before the game had begun, we would’ve been more than happy with a draw, because we needed a result.
“However, at the final whistle, we feel regret, because we deserved the three points and conceded a late goal in a bit of a chaotic fashion after creating so many chances.
“The Champions League would be extraordinary, but we mustn’t think that it’s already in our grasp.”
That was still an admirable effort four days after losing the Coppa Italia final and Atalanta can now return to winning ways, having previously claimed five straight victories.
Four of those triumphs came via 2-1 or 3-1 scorelines and we favour 19/2 for the latter result from the Atalanta vs Sassuolo odds.
A Look At Sassuolo’s Betting Odds
Sassuolo are 10th in the table following a goalless stalemate against Roma at Mapei Stadium and their only defeat in eight games was a narrow 3-2 loss at Torino.
Centre-half Gian Marco Ferrari and Ghana midfielder Alfred Duncan give this side a solid foundation, while Italy winger Domenico Berardi is one to watch out for up front.
However, they do concede plenty of goals and we can’t see them coping with Duvan Zapata and Ilicic, who have netted 34 times in Serie A between them this season.
Let’s finish off our Atalanta vs Sassuolo betting tips by taking 23/20 for a home win and over 3.5 goals in the game.
