CAG Vs ATN Dream11 Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Atalanta’s pathbreaking attacking juggernaut set to go for the jugular once again
Facing Atalanta this season has meant getting yourself embroiled in a jeopardy. This is an attacking side extremely difficult to placate, a side whose meticulous brand of attacking football has taken the league by a storm to set the stage of Serie A 2019-20 alight.
Bombarding their way towards the most goals scored this season at a gargantuan 82 goals, Atalanta will now be looking to breach the symbolic milestone of 100 goals. It’s not only the goals but more so the manner in which they have come about with the side’s fearless attack being an untenable one all across the course of the season.
And the side has ensured that it has utilised the slew of attacking names at its disposal to full effect with the team sparing no expense in bashing any team infront of it. Their 2-0 performance against Napoli the last time around was vindictive of this narrative with the team extending their winning spree to five matches to sit on the brink of qualifying for the Champions League.
Before the league had broken off, Cagliari looked set to be slumped in the relegation spat. However, the turn of the break has seen them go about their task quietly with three unbeaten results, ones which have taken them all the way upto 10th stage.
Its form which augurs well for them when they step out today but unfortunately the side will still be caught lacking owing to its defensive vulnerabilities.
