The hosts have a truly intriguing attacking line-up led by the likes of Domenico Berradi and Khouma Babacar who bagged two goals each so far in the season. They bagged nine goals in four games and defeated the Champions League participants Inter on the opening day.

Empoli returned to the top flight football after spending a one-year loan in Serie B. They will have hard times saving the elite class status this term, at least if we are to judge by a rather poor kick off to the new campaign.

Sassuolo vs Empoli: Head-to-head

Sassuolo have been a dominant force for Empoli over the past couple of years.

Il Neroverdi won all of last three head to head encounters netting three goals in each of matches along.

Sassuolo won 6, drew 1 and lost just 1 of 8 home outings against Azzurri.

Three or more goals were seen in five of past six H2H affairs.

Sassuolo vs Empoli: Prediction

The home win just has to be the way to go here, Sassuolo come into the game in much higher spirits following a fine start to the new season. They also dominated the head to head match-up winning all of past three meetings with Azzurri.

Furthermore, the visitors failed to score more than one goal in last three league games. We just have to take the 1.90 odds offered for the home victory here.

Braver tipsters can even try with a handicap victory for the hosts at the sky-high 3.30 odds (Sassuolo to win by at least two goals difference).

Sassuolo vs Empoli: Bet Tips

  • Sassuolo to win @ 1.90 (9/10)
