The 2023-24 edition of the Serie A is back in action with another round of matches this weekend as Sassuolo lock horns with Gian Piero Gasperini’s Atalanta side in an important clash at the Stadio Citta del Tricolore on Sunday.
Sassuolo vs Atalanta Preview
Atalanta finished in fifth place in the Serie A standings last season and have been fairly impressive over the past year. The away side played out a 0-0 stalemate against Juventus last week and will need to take it up a notch to win this game.
Sassuolo, on the other hand, secured a 13th-place finish in the league table last season and have been inconsistent in recent months. The Neroverdi eased past Cosenza by a comfortable 5-2 margin in their previous game and will look to achieve a similar scoreline this weekend.
