Atalanta host Sassuolo in Serie A soccer action from the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia on Sunday afternoon.

Atalanta come into this match sitting in 4th place on 48 points with a record of 14 wins with 6 draws and 5 losses after a 3rd straight win in the form of a 7-2 dismantling of Lecce in their last match before Serie A was forced to pause due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. In the win over Lecce, Atalanta took the lead in the 17th minute via a Lecce own goal, and five minutes later Duvan Zapata would make it 2-0 for the visitors. Lecce would tie the game at two by the end of the first half, but the second half was all Atalanta as Josip Ilicic restored Atalanta’s lead two minutes after the break. Zapata would score twice in eight minutes in the 54th and 62nd minutes to complete his hat trick and make it 5-2. Luis Muriel made it six in the 87th minute and Ruslan Malinovsky scored in stoppage time to make it 7-2. Ilicic leads Atalanta in scoring with 15 goals this year while Luis Muriel has 13 goals and Zapata’s hat trick brought him to 11 goals on the year. Alejandro Gomez has 6 goals and a team-high 10 assists as well for Atalanta this season. Pierluigi Gollini is Atalanta’s top goaltender, conceding 1.27 goals per 90 minutes with 5 clean sheets in 22 league appearances this season.

Sassuolo on the other hand, come into this match in 11th, tied with Cagliari on 32 points with a record of 9 wins, 5 draws and 11 losses after a 3-0 win over Brescia in their last match before the mandated hiatus. In the win against Brescia, Francesco Caputo gave Sassuolo the lead just before the end of the first half, and the lead held until Caputo completed his brace, scoring his 2nd goal of the match in the 61st to give Sassuolo a 2-0 advantage. Brescia would try to get back into the game, but Sassuolo would shut up shop thanks to a 3rd goal from Jeremie Boga in the 75th minute. Caputo leads Atalanta in scoring with 13 goals while Domenico Berardi has 9 goals and a team-high 5 assists. Andrea Consigli is Sassuolo’s top goalkeeper, conceding 1.5 goals per 90 minutes with 4 clean sheets in 20 league appearances this season.

The plus money is definitely tempting with Sassuolo as they were one of Serie A’s hotter teams when the league came to a halt. The problem is that Atalanta was even hotter, and while the break may have come at a bad time for Atalanta, they haven’t lost to Sassuolo since 2014 and have won each of the last two meetings by at least two goals, including the first meeting in a 4-1 win back in September. I’ll side with Atalanta with the -1.5 handicap to get the price down here.
