Sassuolo entered the competition in the 3rd qualifying round, they defeated Luzern with a 4-1 aggregate. In the playoff round, they defeated Crvena Zvezda 4-1 on aggregate to stay 4 games unbeaten in Europe. They had their share of unluck in the new Serie A season as their 2-1 win against Pescara has been overturned to a defeat for illegal transfer activity. And with a defeat to Juventus on the weekend, they are 17th in Serie A 3 points. This are a side capable of playing some exciting football and will be keen to impress in their debut season in the UEFA Europa League.

Bilbao ended last La Liga campaign on 5th position, they booked an automatic qualification into the Europa League group stage. They are in group F, which consists of Genk, Rapis Wien and Sassuolo. Athletic Bilbao are tipped as the favourites to top the group F table, but their recent form in the league is a thing of worry.

Sassuolo vs Athletic Bilbao: Prediction

Athletic Bilbao kicked of the season with a 2-1 loss to Sporting Gijon, and later lost 0-1 Title holders Barcelona. However, they they found their fit in the last game as they managed a 0-1 away win last week. At the same time, they have managed just 2 wins from their last 8 competitive matches.

Sassuolo have started the season well. They won both of their qualifying games at home by a 3-0 margin. They are coming on the back of a away defeat to Juventus, which is not a surprise. They are expected to stay unbeaten here.
