Salernitana vs Sassuolo
Italian Serie A
Date: 22 April 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Arechi (Salerno).
Salernitana play host to Sassuolo in the first game of Saturday’s Series A schedule at Stadio Arechi in Salerno.
The hosts extended their unbelievable streak of draws to six consecutive games last weekend when they shared spoils with Torino in a 1-1 stalemate.
Tonny Vilhena scored from the team’s lone shot on target six days ago in Turin as Salernitana will have been happy to get away unbeaten on the occasion.
The team led by Portuguese manager Paulo Sousa are still not completely safe, sitting seven points above Verona in the danger zone.
Getting something out of this game would be of a big importance, more so because Salernitana need to travel to Stadio Diego Armando Maradona to face Napoli in the next round.
Sassuolo do not have any kind of relegation woes. They comfortably hold the 10th position in the league table, sitting four points below Juventus in seventh place, meaning European competitions could even be up for grabs for Alessio Dionisi and his troops.
I Neroverdi snapped their two-game winless thread with a strong display in a 1-0 victory over Juventus last Sunday. Dionisi can be thrilled with the showing his men have put up on the occasion.
It is worth mentioning that Sassuolo have been quite inspired for scoring goals on travels lately, netting four or more goals in two of the last five away games in the league. They have bagged at least one goal in all seven away fixtures in 2023.
Salernitana vs Sassuolo Head-to-head
- Sassuolo demolished Salernitana 5-0 in the return game in the first half of the season, back in October last year in Reggio nell’Emilia.
- Sassuolo will go into this on the back of five victories and a draw in the previous six encounters with Salernitana.
- We have seen at least four goals in four of the previous five head to head matches between these rivals.
Salernitana vs Sassuolo Prediction
Sassuolo will go into this encouraged by the win over Juventus in the previous round but we must not forget that Salernitana are undefeated in seven consecutive league affairs.
Since Sassuolo have been scoring for fun lately, while each of the last five games Salernitana played provided goals at both ends, we like the Both Teams To Score pick at the 1.70 odds. Alternatively, we will take the 1.66 odds offered for Salernitana not to lose given they are unbeaten in seven successive outings.
