Our recommended bet for Saturday’s clash at the Gewiss Stadium comes in the form of an Atalanta victory, featuring goals from both sides.
A £10 wager for such an outcome will secure you a return of £30 with 888Sport.
One of just two sides still unbeaten across the Serie A campaign to date are set to act as hosts at the Gewiss Stadium on Saturday, October 15th.
This comes as high-flying Atalanta prepare to face off with mid-table Sassuolo.
La Dea, of course, have proven one of the surprise packages of the Italian to-flight season thus far.
After having major doubts cast over them owing to both the departures of key pieces Cristian Romero and Remo Freuler, and a lowly 8th-placed finish last time out, Gian Piero Gasperini’s troops have since gone about firmly silencing any remaining doubters.
All told, across their nine outings, Atalanta have racked up six wins, to go along with three draws.
This record leaves the Bergamo-based outfit sitting 2nd in the Serie A table as things stand, behind only Luciano Spalletti’s rampant Napoli.
Keep an eye on summer arrival Ademola Lookman when it comes to potential goalscorers for La Dea on Saturday - the former Everton talent has found the back of the net in each of his last two appearances, most recently en route to a 2-2 draw with fellow high-flyers Udinese last time out.
Turning attentions back towards the road ahead for Atalanta, Sassuolo have endured an altogether more hit-and-miss campaign than their upcoming hosts.
In fact, the Neroverdi’s current record, at three wins, three draws and three defeats, is perfectly balanced.
Such efforts leave Alessio Dionisi’s men sitting in 9th in Italy’s top tier, on the outside looking in at the race for European football.
After rattling off a pair of successive victories either side of the international break, including a 5-0 drubbing of Salernitana, Sassuolo were brought crashing back down to earth last time out.
This came as a brace on the part of Edin Dzeko guided Inter Milan to a 2-1 win in Reggio Emilia.
With key trio Mert Muldur, Hamed Traore and Gregoire Defrel, as well as captain and talisman Domenico Berardi, all still sidelined, we at 101 are therefore backing Atalanta to emerge with all three points upon the final whistle bringing a close to proceedings at the Gewiss Stadium on Saturday.
