Tournament: Championship of Italy. Serie A.
Atalanta demonstrates very nice football for several Serie A tournaments in a row but in none of the cases it was able to get into the zone of the Champions League. And now Bergamasca Calcio has got the real variant to get into the tournament of the Old World.
For guaranteed start in autumn in frames of the Champions League the team of Gian Piero Gasperini needs to break the resistance of Sassuolo during the home match of the final 38 round. The Black and Greens have gained small number of wins – 9 (only 4 clubs have the less number), but Roberto De Zerbi can’t reproach his football players with anything: 16 matches out of 37 have been tied. This means that they were bull-headed.
The most devastating loss this season Sassuolo has suffered on home arena to his future opponent having lost with the tennis score 2:6. But this was before New Year. And after that Neroverdi didn’t lose with such large score and in last matches they were successful with Lazio, Torino, Fiorentino and Roma. These teams are the teams of high level.
Atalanta as for now has scored 74 goals and it means that the club has been scoring on average 2 goals for one game – this is the best result in Serie A. Bearing in mind this statistics and carzy motivation of the hosts we can assume that they will score a goal (and even not one) as the defense of Sassuolo is not very reliable. But the guests are obliged to fight against strong rival and is capable of finishing this match without goalless score.
