The fledgling Serie A (SA) campaign has seen Sassuolo develop a reputation for striking early here, with five of their seven SA home goals this season coming before the break. In turn, Sassuolo have kept a first-half clean sheet in five of their last six SA home games, including two this season. So far, they have scored 70% of their overall SA goals at home, and the promise of more goals is strong, as four of Sassuolo’s five league matches this term have produced over 2.5 total match goals. Combined, those five games have averaged 3.6 goals per-match.
The visitors, by contrast, are a team that flourish late on. Currently on a three-match unbeaten run in the league, Atalanta have scored nine of their 11 SA goals in the second half. Atalanta’s presence also promises goals, with four of their five games producing over 2.5 total match goals and goals at both ends.
Even on the road, Atalanta have scored over 1.5 team goals in seven of their last ten SA road trips. Furthermore, they are unbeaten in nine SA away matches, including three back-to-back wins this campaign.
