MATCH PREVIEW

Atalanta will look to get back to winning ways this weekend when they travel to Sassuolo in Serie A (SA).
Sassuolo are 14th in the table after 21 games (22pts) with no imminent danger of relegation – six points ahead of the bottom three. Only the bottom-placed Benevento have scored fewer goals than Sassuolo (14) and 13 of their 21 games played (62%) ended with less than three match goals.
Atalanta lost a tight encounter against Napoli (1-0) last weekend, which was only their second in eight SA games (W4, D2, L2). That also marked the first time that Atalanta failed to find the back of the net, during this run. They remain eighth in the table (30pts) hanging onto the coattails of top-six!
The hosts are unbeaten in three home SA games (W1, D1, L0), ending a run of seven home matches without a win (W0, D2, L5). Only three teams have fewer home points than Sassuolo, whose tally of five goals is the least!
After a disastrous away form with no wins in seven trips (W0, D3, L4), Atalanta are unbeaten in four games on the road (W3, D1, L0). In all those wins, the visitors scored exactly two goals.
Key battles: Midfielder Matteo Politano is involved in six (three goals, three assists) of the 14 goals (43%) scored by Sassuolo in SA this season. The last time he was involved in a goal, Sassuolo won against Inter. His duel with Atalanta’s Alejandro Gomez (four goals, six assists) could determine the outcome of this match.
Stat attack: Sassuolo have beaten Atalanta only twice in 14 encounters in all competitions (W2, D3, L9) with Atalanta remaining unbeaten in the last eight of those.
In six of their last seven encounters, both sides have scored at least one goal.
