Serie A returns this weekend, with Champions League dark horses Atalanta looking to cement their standing in the top four.

They host mid-table Sassuolo in an intriguing encounter on Sunday, with both looking to mark their return with a win. Read my match preview, for the best betting tips and correct score predictions ahead of this interesting fixture.

Atalanta vs Sassuolo Betting Tips

Atalanta have stunned critics and won fans with their excellent displays this season.

They blitzed past Valencia in the Champions League's last-16 before March's shutdown and are Serie A's top scorers (70) this term. Gian Piero Gasperini is enjoying the best spell of his managerial career and overseeing an Atalanta side flying on all cylinders.

Since a surprise 2-1 defeat by SPAL on January 20, they are unbeaten in seven with six wins and are eager to return just as sharp as their displays were before the hiatus.

It's not a guarantee they'll do that though. They entertain a Sassuolo side who pose multiple threats and won four of their last six top-flight fixtures. Since a £6.8m move from Empoli last summer, Francesco Caputo has been impressive in-front of goal. Only five players have more than the 32-year-old's 13 goals this term.

What makes this fixture even more intriguing? He hasn't even been their best player this season. Exciting winger Domenico Berardi and former Milan midfielder Manuel Locatelli, still just 22, have been more consistent performers.

The trio, alongside highly-rated midfielder Jeremie Boga, will be tasked with unlocking an Atalanta backline who have only earned two clean sheets in 2020.

Speaking of unlocking defences, three of the division's top ten scorers all play for Atalanta. Josip Ilicic (15), Luis Muriel (13) and Duvan Zapata (11) have impressed and plenty will be watching how they fare upon their return.

Atalanta vs Sassuolo Correct Score Predictions

This has all the makings of an exciting watch, between two sides in contrasting positions, but with similar targets as they aim to finish the campaign strong. That said, I'm going for an Atalanta win here.
