Sassuolo vs SPAL
Italian Serie A.
Date: Sunday, 11 March 2018
Kick-Off: 14:00 UK,
Venue: MAPEI Stadium (Reggio Emilia).
Both Sassuolo and SPAL are on 23 points, which means that both are in danger of relegation ahead of their meeting this Sunday. Defeat could see either side end up in the drop zone at the end of this round.
The Neroverdi have been absolutely poor this campaign, especially at home. Two victories in front of their home support is an absolutely dismal return and it’s no surprise they have found themselves hovering near the drop zone for much of this campaign.
SPAL, for their part have been quite awful on their travels, where they have won just twice all campaign, but they come into this game having won two on the trot. One was against Crotone on the road, the other a home fixture against Bologna and they will be hoping to use that as a springboard against a Sassuolo side who are winless in their last eight Serie A games.
Sassuolo aren’t only struggling to win, they’re also struggling to score. They have a measly 15 goals to their name so far this term, and only five have been on home turf. SPAL meanwhile aren’t known for being the highest scoring side, either, with 27 so far, so this could be a low-scoring game.

Sassuolo vs SPAL: Prediction
Back to back wins have helped SPAL’s chances at avoiding the drop, but although Sassuolo haven’t won in their last eight games, they won’t go down without a fight. The fact that SPAL have struggled on the road could see them come up short here, especially as Sassuolo could park the bus to try to grind out a point.
