Atalanta Preview

Atalanta had a fantastic finish last season, but they always knew that it would be a tough ask to do that this season. All hope will not be lost, though, as they have had two very tough fixtures to begin Serie A. They were every bit Roma's equal at home on the opening day, and they ended up losing by just a free kick goal. Traveling to Naples has proven a tough- if not impossible- task for just about everyone, so it was no surprise to see them fall there by a score of 3-1. The disappointing part might just be the fact that they led through Bryan Cristante after just 15 minutes. It's great to lead early, but it gave Napoli so much time to recover. They did that in the second half with two goals in five second-half minutes. Piotr Zielinski scored after 56 minutes, and they quickly were down a goal through Dries Mertens' 61st minute finish. The job was done in the 87th minute when Mertens teed up Marko Rog to clinch it.

Atalanta Team News

Left back Boukary Drame has been left out of the squad for Atalanta, so he will not be available until at least January.

Sassuolo Preview

Sassuolo have endured a tough start to their season as well. After a very impressive 2015/16, many were tipping them to become the Leicester of Serie A last season. However, they did not live up to those expectations and were very much like the Leicester of 2016/17 instead of the title winners. They lost their manager, and have so far just earned a point from proceedings this term. They drew at home to begin their season against Genoa by a score of 0-0. A couple of weeks back, they went down to defeat at Torino by a score of 3-0. Andrea Belotti scored right before half time to set the tone for the match. It took a while, but the Turin side confirmed their win in the 84th through Adam Llajic, and then further added to Sassuolo's misery in the 88th minute hwne Joel Obi rounded off the victory. They will start to worry about where goals are going to come from for them after being held to clean sheets in both outings to date.

Sassuolo Team News

Left back Cristian Dell'Orco looks set to be out until December at the earliest as he is still dealing with a knee injury suffered at the end of last season.
