- Atalanta have never started a top-flight campaign with three successive wins, but a 75% win-rate across their last 20 Serie A (SA) matches (W15, D4, L1) gives hope. They scored 2+ goals in 15 of those 20 games with six witnessing 4+ team goals – including both this campaign. That said, Atalanta scored just once across the two H2Hs last campaign (W1, L1).
- Furthermore, the last five SA H2Hs have witnessed under 2.5 match goals with four ending via a 1-0 scoreline. Interestingly, Atalanta netted just once across their last two SA home games (D1, L1) and the last time they recorded consecutive scoring blanks in SA at home was back in Sep/Oct 2018 (three).
- The hosts have lost three of their last four SA campaign home openers (W1, L3) which should be a boost to Cagliari who are searching for their first win of this league season (D1, L1). However, only one win from Cagliari’s last 12 SA games (W1, D5, L6) – whilst failing to score in seven – doesn’t inspire confidence. Low-scoring was a theme during that period, with nine of the aforementioned 12 games producing under 2.5 match goals.
- A 1-1 draw at Sassuolo in Cagliari’s away opener extended their winless run to six SA road trips (D3, L3). Of note is that three of those six matches saw Cagliari fail to score, whilst the other three saw them score exactly once – twice with the opener, including this season.
- Players to watch: Atalanta’s Alejandro Gómez has scored in the first two matches of a SA campaign for the first time in his career.
- Cagliari’s Giovanni Simeone is yet to find the net against Atalanta after eight SA games – the only side he hasn’t scored against after playing at least three matches.
- Hot stat: The home side on the day has lost each of the last five H2Hs, failing to score every time.
