Sassuolo vs Fiorentina Prediction
Roberto De Zerbi’s men picked up their first win in four games last week after they edged it past Verona on the road by a slender 1-0 scoreline. The hosts have been a nervous bunch, to say the least, in their campaign so far. Out of their last eight games, the home side have come out on top just thrice.
With just nine points in the bag, Sassuolo are now fourteenth on the table, three points behind visitors Fiorentina.
The away side, on the other hand, were at the losing end for just the second time this season as their respective matchup with Lazio at home, finished in a 2-1 scorecard. Nevertheless, the guests will be making the trip to Reggio Emilia on the back of a three-match unbeaten run in their outings.
It is also worth mentioning that the visitors have stumbled just once on the road this season. Additionally, Fiorentina have also been faring well in their previous visits to this stadium. And, have been at the losing end just once in their last six trips here.
To make matters for the Sassuolo faithful, the hosts have been admitting back to back defeats in their previous two home games. As such, Sassuolo’s chances of securing all three points are definitely looking bleak.
Be that as it may, three out of the last four meetings between the two sides here have found both teams inseparable at the final whistle. With the visiting contingent salvaging no more than a point in their most recent outing as well, the safest punt in this one is undoubtedly a double chance backing Fiorentina.
Furthermore, the hosts have not been shy in searching for goals, and have found the back of the net three times or more in three of their last four games here. Taking into account that four of their previous five head to head encounters have also witnessed goals down either end, expect Sassuolo to grab a consolation goal at the least in this one.
