Atalanta vs Sassuolo in Serie A: Head to Head Statistics, LIVE Streaming Link, teams stats up, results, Date, Time, Watch Live
Atalanta BC returns after the festive break to meet fellow overachievers Sassuolo, as two of the most attractive teams in recent Serie A seasons go head-to-head in Bergamo on Sunday.
Increasingly inconsistent before the turn of the year, La Dea are in seventh place, while Roberto De Zerbi‘s visitors ended 2020 with all three points against Sampdoria to sit fourth – just above traditional giants Napoli and Juventus.
Atalanta enters this year as they ended the last – with doubts over the future of their captain Papu Gomez hanging grimly over a previously tight-knit squad.
The irrepressible Argentinian playmaker has been ostracised by manager Gian Piero Gasperini since mid-December falling out between the pair and looks set to soon depart for one of the nearby Milan clubs.
Sassuolo’s current fourth place in the standings represents their best-ever ranking after the first 14 rounds of a Serie A season and reflects a superb start to the 2020-21 campaign for De Zerbi’s side.
After having failed to win against either Fiorentina or Milan, the Neroverdi saw off Sampdoria just before Christmas, with a 3-2 win at Marassi.
Atalanta vs Sassuolo Head-to-Head
Atalanta has an excellent record against Sassuolo and has won 13 games out of a total of 19 matches played between the two sides.
Sassuolo has managed only two victories against Atalanta and will need to take it up a notch this weekend.
