Atalanta hosts Sassuolo in round 38 of Italian Serie A. The match will be played on Sunday, May 26th at Stadio Atleti Azzurri d'Italia (Bergamo)
Atalanta managed to get 1 point in Turin and even could beat the champions of Italy. In that meeting, the team from Bergamo actively spent the first half, which allowed it to be ahead. But once again, the defense of Atalanta faltered. Juventus showed total domination after the halftime and won back as a result. Early the team from Bergamo conceded from the teams with a lower status. In the last home game, they failed to keep a clean sheet with Genoa. Earlier in Bergamo, such teams as Bologna, Spal and Chievo score at least a goal. Even Fiorentina, which shows a bad game in the 2nd round, broke through the defense of Atalanta. The team from Bergamo attacks using all forces and therefore gives opponents the opportunity to create dangerous counter attacks.

The season for Sassulo was an ambiguous one. On the one hand, the team takes the 10th place before the 38th round, on the other – it completely failed the 2nd leg. Sassuolo managed to gain only three victories after the break. The reasons for the unsuccessful performance are associated with failures in defense. Especially away, the Black and Greens concede a lot. In 2019, the team spent 10 matches on the road and managed to keep a clean sheet only twice. Sassuolo conceded more than 1 goal not only from strong opponents, but even from such teams as Genoa and Bologna. Now, the Black and Greens will play an away match with the most scoring team of Serie A.
Even in the home field, Sassuolo somehow conceded as many as 6 goals from Atalanta. I do not think that the team will keep a clean sheet in Bergamo either. The hosts need to earn 3 points to secure a ticket to the Champions League. Therefore, the squall of attacks will fall upon the visitors. In the home field, the team from Bergamo did not score only in 1 of the last 14 matches. With such failures in defense, as Sassuolo has, it will not be possible to hold back the onslaught of such a motivated team as Atalanta. Nevertheless, the visitors are able to score a goal. Among all the contenders for the top 3, Atalanta has the worst defense. In this season, the team from Bergamo conceded 45 goals in 37 games. Sassuolo scored at least 1 goal in the last 5 away matches. Even in the away match with Torino, the team managed to score, despite the red card. Finally, in the first leg match, the Black and Greens scored 2 goals to Atalanta.
Prediction for the match: Both teams to score – yes
