Sassuolo vs Udinese
Italian Serie A
Date: Friday, 6 November 2020
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: MAPEI Stadium, Reggio nell’Emilia.
Sassuolo have been in great shape and look to take the top of the table on Friday evening, hosting Udinese for their Matchday 6 clash. They beat Napoli (0-2) last week as Manuel Locatelli opened the scoresheet from the spot and Maxi Lopez confirmed it in the stoppage time, which should have them in a great mood now as well.
Neroverdi thus bagged four wins in five outings since late September, where they also beat Spezia (1-4), Crotone (4-1), and Bologna (3-4), before being held off by Torino (3-3) in a six-goal thriller. They scored a league-high total of 18 goals in the process and will want more of the same on Friday – promising an attacking approach.
Udinese have struggled defensively and see it costly as they sit in the relegation zone early in the campaign. They come into the match after a home loss to AC Milan (1-2) untangled by Ibrahimovic’s scissor-kick late in the game. The visitors conceded eight goals in four games now behind them and could be in for more at MAPEI Stadium this time around despite great records they can boast at this ground.
Sassuolo vs Udinese Head-to-head
Udinese snatched a 0-1 win on their last trip here in August, which was their third win in seven trips – with three draws and just a single loss on records.
Sassuolo last beat Udinese (1-2) in March 2018, when Sensi secured the points with a winner at Dacia Arena.
We have seen two or fewer goals in three of the sides’ last four clashes.

We do see Sassuolo building on a great start of the new campaign and we’ll back them to secure all three points in a Home win priced at 1.90. They’ve been in great shape and this feels like great value, which could prove the best approach to the fixture as well.
However, we don’t see it coming easily. Udinese should be able to prove their character and we hope to see them get on the scoresheet as well, which has us going for a high-scoring occasion. We’ll go for a YES on Both teams to score & Over 2.5 Goals FT, which combines to an enticing 1.80 as both sides regularly enjoy such games lately.
