Sassuolo vs Genoa
2018/19 Italian Serie A.
Date: Sunday 2 September 2018
Kick-Off: 19:30 UK,
Venue: MAPEI Stadium (Reggio Emilia).
Sassuolo have started off solidly, with four points from their first two games. They first defeated Inter and earned a late equalizer against Cagliari last weekend. Next up for them is a clash against Genoa and this is also a good chance for them to put some more points on the board to make amends for their poor start last term.
Genoa, meanwhile, started their campaign off late because of the bridge collapse in their city, but come into this game having won their last fixture.
They, too, will be hoping to improve having had a difficult season last time, and come into this fixture having earned a victory over newly promoted Empoli.
The Grifone spent a lot of last term battling the drop but turned things around and started to climb the table to secure a mid-table finish.
Sassuolo will be determined to improve their goal-scoring abilities this time around, which is what cost them dearly last time.
Domenico Berardi, who was key for them throughout the past few seasons is back in strong form and they have added the experienced Kevin-Prince Boateng to their roster in a bid to revitalize their fortunes. And he’s someone who has proven he can add goals from midfield as fans will know from his spells with AC Milan and Eintracht Frankfurt, among others.

Sassuolo vs Genoa: Prediction
The Rossoblu have struggled on the road and they have lost five of their last six away games. Sassuolo have also made a very strong start, where they have also done very well at home against Genoa. They should be able to do much better than the insipid 0-0 draw they earned last time they welcomed the Grifone to this ground last season.
