Sassuolo vs Atalanta by Rahul

Sassuolo have been struggling with no wins in their last 5 games across all competitions and have been terribly inconsistent in the league compared to the dream season that they had last season. With all those struggles that they are having, its no surprise that they have been bad on the defensive end. They commit 13 fouls per game and that coming out of 17 tackles per game. They have already gotten 21 cards in 11 games so far this season, which is an average of 2 per game.


Atalanta their opponents for this game are coming with a rich vein of form behind them and are now unbeaten in 6 straight games with 5 wins and a draw in that time. They have beaten Inter, Napoli, Genoa while drawing with Fiorentina in those games, but they are quite ruthless when it comes to defensive ability. They have racked up 26 yellow cards and 2 red cards in 11 games played so far. They have 15 fouls per game of 15 tackles, showcasing the rough nature of the tackles.


The rough matches between the sides have seen a lot of cards between them as they have generally been battling in the bottom half of the table. The card count has read 6, 13, 10, 4, 7 and has particularly had 4 red cards in the last 3 games.


Add to that the referee for this game Fabio Maresca has been one who loves brandishing the cards. In his games so far this campaign he has given a lot of cards reading as per below in his 4 Serie A games in 2016/17 season:


Empoli v Chievo - 7 YC, 1 RC


Bologna v Genoa - 5 YC, 3 RC


Lazio v Pescara - 4 YC


Udinese v Empoli - 6 YC, 1 RC


In the previous year of 2015/16 season, his cards stats read as follows:


Atalanta v Verona - 7 YC, 1 RC


Carpi v Chievo - 7 YC


Verona v Juventus - 6 YC, 1 RC


This game has all the makings of a very heavy card and bookings and I am backing over 6.5 cards in this encounter.
