      Atalanta vs Sassuolo Predictions

      Atalanta enter Saturday’s game against Sassuolo needing to pick up a win. They started the 2015/16 season extremely brightly, spending much of the first 20 games in the top half, however, a stretch of four straight losses, followed by a pair of draws has seen them drop down the standings. Relegation isn’t a huge threat at this point, but Atalanta will still want to get back to winning ways as soon as possible.

      Sassuolo are still in seventh place and continue to cause problems for the Serie A’s top sides. Still, they also enter Saturday’s game with a few concerns. They’re win-less in three games, including a 3-1 away loss to Napoli, a 1-1 draw with Torino, and most disappointingly, a 2-0 home loss to Bologna last weekend.

      This isn’t going to be a fast-paced or fantastically open game of football, both teams are set up in a relatively similar way and it could be 90 minutes of attrition more than anything else.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Grind type of game

      This game isn’t going to be played at speed, it’s going to be a bit of a grind and we don’t anticipate a lot of goals being scored.

      2. Sassuolo go back to basics

      Inparticular, we really expect Sassuolo to play out and out defence, even against Atalanta. They opened up perhaps just a little going for three points against Bologna, don’t expect that stylistic mistake again.

      3. Backing Atalanta to win

      They’ve waited longer for a win and our correct score prediction just fancies that this might be a game where a home team can steal something.
