Atalanta vs Cagliari
KICK OFF: SUNDAY 2nd sept 2018 | 20:30 CET
Seria A wk3 | ATLETI AZZURI D’ITALIA
Atlanta takes on Familiar Foe Cagliari but Can they now reverse the trend from last season?
Atalanta lost to Cagliari in both legs last season, but the difference between the two sides now suggests a win for the hosts is possible.
Atalanta began the new campaign by thumping Frosinone 4 - 0, which leaves them leading the goals charts in Seria A. The strength in this team is formidable given that they’ve also been involved in Europa League qualification games without tasting defeat. Papu Gomez got a brace in Atalanta’s opening game and the desire to get more will still be there when Cagliari come to town.
Cagliari started with a defeat to Empoli, and they’ll be hoping to pick themselves up in time for this tricky away game. The fact that they dominated this fixture previously will give them confidence.
The hosts are in great shape to record a successive home win, and Cagliari are unlikely to stand in their way.
Key Match Facts
- Atalanta has gone ten straight games without defeat (W9, D1).
- Papu Gomez scored in the last two home games against Cagliari.
