Sassuolo vs Bologna
Italy Serie A
Date: Saturday, 20 February 2021
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: MAPEI Stadium – Citta del Tricolore, Reggio nell’Emilia.
Mid-table rivals Sassuolo and Bologna will close proceedings of the Serie A Saturday with their clash at MAPEI Stadium – Citta del Tricolore.
The match may not have the biggest significance as it can hardly change much of the teams’ ambitions in the remaining part of the season.
However, we have reasons to expect an eventful affair packed with goal-scoring chances at both ends based on what we’ve seen from both outfits this year.
I Neroveri well confounded the pre-season expectations. They sit comfortably at the 8th position of the Serie A ladder and have a ten-point advantage over the 12th-placed Bologna right now. They snapped a six-game winless thread by beating the rock-bottomed Crotone 1-2 on the road six days ago.
Domenico Berardi and Francesco Caputo were on the scoreline at Stadio Ezio Scida. They are the main candidates for the anytime goalscorer pick here as well.
Sassuolo vs Bologna Head-to-head
- The head to head tradition also suggests an open match packed with goals.
- The Over 2.5 goals FT & Both Teams To Score “came in” each of the last six head to head encounters.
- Sassuolo picked up a 3-4 victory in a fabulous seven-goal thriller played in mid-October last year at Stadio Renato Dall’Ara.
- I Neroverdi won each of the last two clashes against I Rossoblu.
Sassuolo vs Bologna Prediction
Bologna took four points from the last two rounds, but they failed to back up the magnificent display from the 0-3 thumping of Parma by playing just a 1-1 draw to Benevento last weekend on the home patch.
The head coach Sinisa Mihajlovic has an exciting attacking line-up to rely on as the likes of Musa Barrow, Rodrigo Palacio, Nicola Sansone, and Riccardo Orsolini are capable of hurting any opposition in the league on their day.
We have no other option but to back a goal fest here. The Over 2.5 goals FT & Both Teams To Score (the option that landed in all of the last six head to head encounters between these two sides) is paid at the odds of 1.90.
We will alternatively back Francesco Caputo, Sassuolo’s top scorer with 9 goals in 17 appearances (and is also on penalties), to score anytime in such an open contest at the odds of 2.00.
