Atalanta vs Sassuolo Match Preview
Atalanta are just one victory away from qualifying for a first ever Champions League campaign – and expected to achieve it without any problems against Sassuolo.
The club from Bergamo have been much improved in the last three seasons under manager Gian Piero Gasperini and while they finished fourth in Serie A in 2016-17, they could now benefit from the increased number of Champions League places given to Italian clubs.
Two of Atalanta’s six continental campaigns have come in the Europa League this season and last, but if they justify being long odds-on and beat Sassuolo they will finish third because despite being level on points with Inter Milan, they have a better head-to-head record.
The worry for the club nicknamed La Dea (The Goddess) is that if they fail to win this final game, they could be overtaken by both Milan clubs – but not by sixth-placed Roma, for Atalanta have a much superior goal difference with those teams level on the head-to-head.
For Sassuolo, there is no great incentive here other than to retain their place in the top half of the table and they have drawn five of their last eight games.
The latter stat may be a slight worry for Atalanta fans, but their own team’s league form has been very solid since February and they can make up for losing the recent Coppa Italia final against Lazio by making sure of their berth in the Champions League group stage.
