Atalanta Bergamo - Italian team that has made a huge progress in the last few years. The team, which used to be one of the average to below average teams in the Italian league, is now one of the top teams in Serie A.
In the first round they beat 2:1 FC Torino. They also have a 0-0 draw with Bologna, a 1-2 loss to Fiorentina and at the weekend they won at the newcomer Salernitani 1-0. For quite a long time on Saturday night, it looked like Atalanta were in for another disappointment. At the ground of the newcomer Salernitana the score was 0:0 until the 75th minute when Duván Zapata scored. Atalanta did not have the expected dominance. On the other hand, it's clear that keeping the Colombian striker was key in the summer, and at the same time, he wasn't even negatively affected by speculation about his possible transfer to Inter. Atalanta will face the defending champions this weekend, but before that they have an inserted round against Sassuolo.

Their opponent is Sassuolo, who have been playing poorly so far this season, and their results are consistent with that. In the last league round, this Italian team lost to FC Torino 0:1 and deservedly so. Sassuolo showed almost nothing in the match. On the contrary - they were only under pressure for most of the game. They didn't even deserve a point for their poor performance. Sassuolo didn't perform much better in the second to last league round, where they lost 1:2 to AS Roma.
Coach Dionisi's men have four points (1-1-2) and only four goals scored after four rounds. If any team has fallen short of expectations this season, it is Sassuolo.

Considering that Bergamo are playing much better football than their opponents this season and they also have the home advantage, I'm picking them to win.

Atalanta have an excellent record against Sassuolo and have won 13 out of 20 matches played between the two teams.

Sassuolo have grown in stature over the past year but will need to be at their best in this match. Atalanta are the better team on paper and should be able to win this game.
