Torino vs Sassuolo
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 12 May 2019
Kick-Off 11:30 UK / 12:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino (Turin).
Torino joined the battle for European competitions thanks to an amazing streak of results in the last couple of months. They climbed up to 7th place in the Serie A ladder and are just two points behind the likes of Milan and Roma who share 5th place with 59 points each.
Il Toro lost only one of last 15 league matches. They will have a great opportunity to keep the stellar form going on Sunday morning when Sassuolo come to visit Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino.
Il Toro go into this unbeaten in past seven matches in Serie A. They conceded only one goal in past three league outings and it came last weekend in a 1-1 draw to bitter city rivals and new-old Italian champions Juventus. Walter Mazzarri’s men previously conceded only two goals in last five matches.
Torino vs Sassuolo: Head-to-head
Il Toro were much more successful in the history of head to head encounters with Sassuolo.
Torino lead the tie by four wins ahead of the landmark 20th meeting with I Neroverdi.
Teams shared spoils in two subsequent 1-1 draws in past two H2H outings.
Torino won two and drew three of past five matches with I Neroverdi.
Torino vs Sassuolo: Prediction
The visitors also enjoyed an overwhelming Serie A campaign this season. They sit sky-high 10th in the league ladder and are miles away from the relegation scrap. Much like their counterparts, Sassuolo head into this high on confidence. They are unbeaten in last six matches in the league.
However, Roberto De Zerbi’s troops won only one of past ten matches away from home across competitions. They go up against a side which won seven, drew one and lost one of past nine league matches in their own backyard.
Knowing about Torino’s opportunity to earn a place in European competitions next season with results in last two rounds against Sassuolo and Lazio, we have to back the home win as the only logical betting option here.
