The Serie A is back in action with another set of matches this weekend as Atalanta take on Cagliari on Saturday. Atalanta are in impressive form this season and hold the upper hand this weekend.

Cagliari are rooted to the bottom of the Serie A standings and have endured a dismal campaign so far. The Sicilian outfit suffered a 2-0 defeat against Bologna and will need to bounce back in this match.

Atalanta, on the other hand, are in fifth place in the league table at the moment and have been excellent this season. La Dea were held to a 2-2 draw by Manchester United in their previous game and have a point to prove in this fixture.

Atalanta can be unstoppable on their day but are susceptible to the occasional poor result. Gian Piero Gasperini has excellent players at his disposal and will be intent on making a statement of intent this weekend.
