Sassuolo vs Atalanta: top free betting tips

After a draw against Juventus in Friendlies, Atalanta prepares for the first round of Serie A against Sassuolo on Sunday, 20 August. The Black and Greens enter this game after a victory over Cosenza in the first round of Coppa Italia.

Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

Three of the previous five H2H meetings between these two sides have gone Over 2.5 Goals. Sassuolo has found the back of the net seven times in the last five fixtures in Serie A. Their defence has also been caught napping as they conceded 12 goals in the same duration. On the other hand, Atalanta has rattled the net ten times in just the previous three games in the Italian first division. Considering these facts, we predict a total of Over 2.5 Goals as the first pick for this game.

Both teams to score prediction: Yes

Sassuolo has been on the scoring side in each of the previous five fixtures in Serie A. However, the Black and Greens have been dismal at the back end and failed to secure a single clean sheet in that course. Atalanta has also rattled the net in four of the last five road fixtures in Serie A, keeping zero clean sheets. Furthermore, four of the last five H2Hs of these two clubs have concluded with both teams on the scoring side. Therefore, we believe see this game ending with a BTTS outcome.

Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Atalanta

Sassuolo has netted the ball just once in four of the previous five league outings at Mapei Stadium – Città del Tricolore. However, Atalanta has notched multiple goals in each of the previous three league outings. The Black and Blues have also limited Sassuolo to scoring only one goal in three of the previous four H2Hs. In the same duration, Atalanta secured two victories with the same margin of 2-1. Therefore, we predict a 1-2 again for Atalanta to collect all three points in the first round of Serie A.
