Fiorentina vs Sassuolo Prediction, Betting Tips and Match Preview for Italian Serie A match on Wednesday, 1 July 2020. Kick off 20:45 UK/ 21:45 CET at the Stadio Artemio Franchi.
Both teams are comfortably placed in the mid-table. Neither do they a good shot at making it into Europe, nor are they under any imminent danger from the relegation cut-off. As such, the teams have been playing pretty relaxed lately.
On top of that, defense from both squads have not been on the top of their games as well. In fact, clean sheets have been very rare for the teams all through the season.
Going on, h2h encounters between the two have also been filled with plenty of goals over the years. Considering all these factors, expect both teams to slot in goals this Wednesday at the Stadio Artemio Franchi.
