Hellas Verona vs Sassuolo
Italy – Serie A
Date: Wednesday, 18 April 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi (Verona).
Hellas Verona could not back up the victory over Cagliari as they fell 2-0 away at Bologna on Sunday afternoon. Il Gialloblu thus instantly returned to the old habits making their situation more complicated down in the relegation scrap. The team led by Fabio Pecchia is three points shy of the safe zone ahead of a super important mid-week’s clash with Sassuolo at Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi.
The hosts are in desperate need for points with only six games left to play, but they will need a serious turnaround in form in order to save the top tier status come May. Their rivals definitely enter the game as the form favourites, being undefeated in last six matches in Serie A. Such spell of form brought Il Neroverdi into a comfortable position, but the visitors are also yet to secure the safe zone finish being just four points above the line at the moment.
Hellas Verona vs Sassuolo: Head-to-head
The head to head stats speak in Verona’s favour since they won four, drew one and lost one of six home matches against Sassuolo over the history.
It is important to mention that none of last three H2H games ended produced three or more goals.
Il Gialloblu came on top when the teams met for the first time this season, clinching the 0-2 victory in Reggio Emilia.
Hellas Verona vs Sassuolo: Prediction
Sassuolo avoided losses against the likes of Napoli and Milan recently, but they also failed to see off Benevento at the weekend, conceding the late equalizer at MAPEI Stadium. Each of last six league games they played saw both teams on target, four ending with the 1-1 scoreline.
We definitely don’t expect to see goals galore here due to the importance of the match and the most recent history of head to head meetings. The 1-1 correct score is a very interesting pick based on what’s written above.
The bet you will hardly make a mistake with is Under 2.5 goals FT at the odds of 1.85.
