La Dea are currently fourth in Italy's top flight and have won their last five matches in all competitions, while Sassuolo occupy 11th spot in the table ahead of the season's restart.
It would perhaps be fair to say that the enforced break in the 2019-20 campaign came at a bad time for Atalanta, who were flying before the action was called to a halt at the start of March.
A run of four wins from five Serie A matches - including scoring seven at both Torino and Lecce - saw Gian Piero Gasperini's side solidify their top-four spot, and they are currently three points clear of fifth-placed Roma.
La Dea also booked their spot in the quarter-finals of the Champions League on March 10 - eliminating Valencia in the process - and will finish their European campaign in August.
The team's immediate focus is on Italy's top flight, though, and they will be determined to make it four straight league victories when they welcome Sassuolo to the Gewiss Stadium.
Atalanta have performed better on their travels than at home this season, though, with four of their five Serie A defeats during the 2019-20 campaign actually occurring on their home ground.
Sassuolo, meanwhile, have not been in action since beating Brescia 3-0 on March 9, which was their third league victory in four matches during a strong run of form.
Roberto De Zerbi's side have only lost one of their last six in the league - recording four wins in the process - to leave themselves in 11th position ahead of the restart.
The Black and Greens have been present in Italy's top flight since 2013-14 and are currently seven points clear of the relegation zone, meaning that they are in a strong position to secure another season at this level.
The omens are not terrific for Sassuolo this weekend, though, as they have only won three of their 12 away league fixtures this season, while they have lost their last four Serie A games against Atalanta.

Domenico Berardi, who has scored nine times in 20 Serie A appearances this season, will also start for I Neroverdi, who have a lot of talent in forward positions.
Atalanta possible starting lineup:
Gollini; Djimsiti, Caldara, Toloi; Gosens, Freuler, De Roon, Hateboer; Gomez; Ilicic, Zapata
Sassuolo possible starting lineup:
Consigli; Toljan, Santos, Ferrari, Kyriakopoulos; Obiang, Locatelli; Berardi, Djuricic, Boga; Caputo
We say: Atalanta 2-0 Sassuolo
This has all the makings of a very entertaining game. Atalanta are the favourites, but Sassuolo are certainly capable of causing an upset on Sunday night despite being the underdogs. We are not expecting too many goals but fancy Atalanta to secure all three points on their return to action.
