On February 4, Sassuolo will meet with Atalanta in the match of the 21st round of the Italian championship. The meeting starts at 19:45 GMT.
Serie A 2022-23
Sassuolo is having a very weak season and is currently one of the contenders for relegation to Serie B. With 16 points, Alessio Dionisi’s team is 16th in the table, seven points ahead of Verona in the relegation zone.
In the last round, Sassuolo created a real sensation, as in the away match with Milan they won with a score (5-2), breaking a series of eight matches without a win.
Atalanta, meanwhile, did not have the best first round of the championship, failing to fully gain a foothold in the top four. However, after the winter break, the team of Gianpiero Gasperini seriously improved and has already reached the fourth line in the table.
However, a mistake in today’s match could once again knock the club out of the Champions League zone, and the sixth Roma has only one point less.
Last week, Atalanta was knocked out of the Coppa Italia, losing away (0-1) to Inter. The team played their last match in Serie A successfully, defeating Sampdoria (2:0).

Atalanta had a poor match against Inter this week, losing a clean sheet in the Cup. At the same time, in the championship, the team is still fulfilling its task, but has no right to make a mistake, so today the guests will only play to win.
Despite the success of Sassuollo in Milan, it is hardly worth overestimating the club, there are plenty of problems in the team and they cannot be solved with one victory.
Prediction for this match: Atalanta win.
- Atalanta to win 1st half.
