Sassuolo vs Torino: Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips-8th January 2017

Sassuolo vs Torino
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 8th January 2017
Kick-Off: 14:00 UK/15:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Città del Tricolore, Reggio Emilia.

The things haven’t gone as planned for Sassuolo after finishing 6th in the Serie A standings last season. They are currently 16th in the league table with 7 points separating them from the relegation zone. Injuries had come at the wrong time and the busy schedule with their involvement in Europa League had left Eusebio Di Francesco with a tired squad. The notable absentee since September is their key goal getter Domenico Berardi, who is now back in training but still lacking match fitness.

Torino are 8th in the league with 28 points, but they do lack the consistency to accumulate wins on a regular basis. A major problem lies with their vulnerable defense which tends to concede goals at regular interval. Nonetheless, it is a wonderful first half for Torino, who finished at 12th last season.

Sassuolo vs Torino: Prediction

Eusebio Di Francesco will be hoping for a bright start to the second half of the season as Sassuolo are dangerously close to the relegation zone. They are on a 3 match losing streak and managed just 1 win from their last 10 Serie A games.

At the same time, Torino look like a better side on form and will be high on confidence after a good first half to the season. They are yet to lose a match at Reggio Emilia in over a decade and will be confident to get away with at least a point from this match. However, our main and only pick for this match is over 2.5 goals as we expect both teams to fight for the full three points.
