Fiorentina vs Sassuolo
Italy Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 16 December 2020
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Artemio Franchi Stadium, Florence.
Fiorentina have struggled to perform and Cesare Prandelli hasn’t been able to make a serious impact since taking over, as his men earned just one point in four Serie A outings and only beat Udinese (0-1 in extra time) in Coppa Italia along the way. They now host Sassuolo sitting just outside the relegation zone and will be desperate to find a way back to the winning ways.
Sassuolo haven’t really been able to score many goals lately but still enjoy a much better moment. They beat Benevento (1-) as Domenico Berardi converted an early penalty kick, which has De Zerbi’s men just a point behind 4th placed Juventus.
Neroverdi suffered just one loss in ten games since late September and bagged six wins and three draws along the way too. We’ve seen them very solid at the back and we hope to see another tough challenge at Artemio Franchi Stadium. The visitors kept five clean sheets in the last six outings too and struggling Fiorentina strikers could have a hard time making the chances count on Wednesday evening.

Fiorentina vs Sassuolo Prediction
Fiorentina will be struggling hard to bounce from their unwanted streak but we don’t see them ending it. Sassuolo have been tough defensively and we’ll back them to snatch the points with another such display in Florence, going for an Away win to Nil which comes at 5.50 and looks like a lively longshot.
With that in mind, we are hoping to see a narrow contest with high stakes involved for both sides. We will now also go for few goals and Under 2.5 goals FT at 2.10. We have seen Sassuolo enjoying such games on the regular lately and this could make for another such occasion in a row.
