Sassuolo vs Atalanta by JerryDrake

First fixture of Matchday 11 in Serie A. Sassuolo are undefeated in the last four matches where they won 2 and drew 2 included a 1-1 home draw with Juventus. Zaza will be available so Di Francesco can play with all of his three strong strikers: Zaza, Berardi and Sansone.


Atalanta scored only 4 goals in their first 10 games, only 2 goals in the last 8 games. Colantuono is struggling to have back the strong team we saw last season when Atalanta collected 50 points. Today Colantuono will miss two key midfield players, Carmona (10/0) and Cigarini (9/0), both suspended. Not to forget that Atalanta keep missing Bonaventura. He plays now for Milan but his quality is still missing.


We have never seen Sassuolo getting many positive results in a row. In their Serie A debut last season they had no continuity. But this season they started well and they seem to be mature. Consigli, Peluso and Taider have already completed their good integration in the team. What about the young talented Sassuolo strikers? Sansone has not scored yet (10/0) but offered good performances and assists, Zaza (6/2) made his debut with the Italian national team and Berardi seems to continue his growth (7/3 + 2 assists). He is still playing with the U21 national team but Antonio Conte is keeping an eye on him.


Atalanta will have to defend and try to get another point as they did with Napoli (1-1) and Torino (0-0). I like to bet on good playing teams with good strikers, Sassuolo have the chance to get three points before having to play three times on the road in the next four rounds. Score prediction: 2-1
