Sassuolo vs Udinese
Italian Serie A
Date: 11 September 2022, Sunday
Kick-off at 14:00 UK / 15:00 CET
Venue: MAPEI Stadium – Citta del Tricolore (Reggio nell’Emilia).
Udinese opened the season with one point from the inaugural two games but went on to pick up three consecutive victories afterwards.
New manager Andrea Sottil looks to have found the winning formula as his team look better and better with each new game.
Udinese thus offered their best showing of the season last Sunday when they demolished Roma 4-0 on the home patch.
The best part of Sottil is that he saw four different players getting their names on the scoresheet.
Udinese play nice attacking football while being at the same time very tough to break down at the opposite end.
Sottil’s men have thus only conceded one goal in the previous four Serie A affairs. They will fancy their chances of maintaining such fine defensive record here against Sassuolo who have been unusually quiet in the final third at the start of the season.
I Neroverdi have only scored three goals in the maiden five outings of the season. They will go into this tie off the back of two straight goalless draws to AC Milan and Cremonese.
On a positive note for manager Alessio Dionisi, his men are now undefeated in four consecutive league outings. The problem is that three of those four matches ended in draws.
Returning to winning ways will be quite a challenge for the hosts given they are up against a very strong and in-form Udinese side here.
Sassuolo vs Udinese Head-to-head
- Sassuolo have only managed to beat Udinese once in the previous nine head to head encounters at MAPEI Stadium – Citta del Tricolore.
- Udinese will go into this with three wins and two draws in the previous five meetings with Sassuolo.
- Just one of the last five head to head outings between the two teams saw three or more goals scored.
Sassuolo vs Udinese Prediction
Both Sassuolo and Udinese have been pretty tough to break down of late and we see great value in the Under 2.5 goals FT bet at the odds of 2.20.
The value is higher if we know that four of the previous five H2H affairs between these rivals finished with fewer than three goals scored.
