Bologna vs Sassuolo
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 18 October 2020
Kick-Off at 11.30 UK
Venue: Stadio Renato Dall’Ara, Bologna.
Sunday Serie A action is starting at Renato Dall’Ara where Bologna welcomes in-form Sassuolo. Hosts surely had better expectations from the opening three rounds. They have collected only three points, which is enough for 15th place at the moment, just a couple above the red zone.
Can Sinisa Mihajlovic’s squad show some magic from the last season when they had zero worries about avoiding relegation?
Sassuolo are playing similar to Atalanta in the last couple of months, being super-aggressive and their games usually ended with high number of goals.
Visitors are warm favorites for the win, currently priced at 2.20 odds.
Bologna vs Sassuolo Head-to-head
- These two teams have met 13 times in the past and so far Bologna have small advantage in terms of victories 6 to 4.
- The grand total of goals scored in all those duels is 30, which averages around 2.25 per match.
- Five out of the last six h2h ended with Both teams scoring and Over 2.5 FT goals combo. We are expecting to see similar scenario this Sunday.
- The most recent encounter took place at this same stadium in early July. Sassuolo have won 2-1 FT.
Bologna vs Sassuolo Prediction
It would be fair to say that squad from Reggio Emilia is the most pleasant surprise package of Serie A campaign so far.
Sassuolo have collected seven out of possible nine points so far, while playing very entertaining football. They have scored nine goals so far, but eight of them were bagged against newcomers and not so great teams Spezia and Crotone.
Sassuolo have won those encounters with identical 4-1 result. Francesco Caputo keeps adding more and more goals to his name (three in this campaign) and will surely be the top choice for goals scorers market.
Bologna haven’t done much this season besides beating Parma at home. They were defeated on both away days to AC Milan and Benevento, which was slightly unexpected.
We are tipping visitors to continue with great plays and collect all three points here.
Bologna vs Sassuolo Tips:
Away win @ 2.20
