Atalanta vs Sassuolo Odds
Atalanta ended 2023 with a victory against Lecce and now aims to continue its successful streak in the new year at the beginning of the Coppa Italia campaign. Despite a good run in the league and Europe, coach Gian Piero Gasperini has not yet won a trophy. In this match against Sassuolo, the winner advances to the quarterfinals to face either Cagliari or AC Milan.
After a loss to Bologna, Atalanta bounced back with a win against Lecce, with Ademola Lookman, now playing for Nigeria, playing a crucial role. Given their impressive goal-scoring record at home, a strong performance is expected against a defensively vulnerable opponent.
Considering the important league match against Roma on Sunday, Atalanta is likely to make several changes for the Coppa Italia midweek fixture. Juan Musso may replace Marco Carnesecchi in goal, and Luis Muriel is expected to play instead of Ademola Lookman.
Defensive options are limited due to injuries to Rafael Toloi, Giorgio Scalvini, and Jose Luis Palomino, joining El Bilal Toure on the sidelines.
Sassuolo continues to concede many goals this Serie A season, hovering just above the relegation zone. Despite earlier successes against Milan and Inter, recent defeats are putting pressure on coach Alessio Dionisi.
A positive result in the Coppa Italia could boost the team’s morale, especially considering they have never won this trophy before. Sassuolo’s journey includes a dramatic victory and a win in a penalty shootout.
Facing Atalanta in Bergamo poses a tough challenge for them. The Sassuolo medical team is dealing with injuries to key players like Uros Racic, Daniel Bologa, Gregoire Defrel, Matias Vina, and Pedro Obiang.
On Wednesday, Dionisi is expected to rotate the squad, giving opportunities to backup players like Samuele Mulattieri and Cristian Volpato. Domenico Berardi, a key player often plagued by injuries, is likely to be rested.

Atalanta is the favorite in this matchup due to the home-field advantage and significantly better form compared to Sassuolo, and anything other than a home win would be a considerable surprise.
