Sassuolo Prediction – Can Sassuolo leapfrog Bologna?

Friday night’s hosts, Sassuolo, currently occupy 15th place on the Serie A ladder but are just 2 points behind their visitors, Bologna, prior to tonight’s important clash in the Italian top flight, and all three points in this encounter would see Sassuolo leapfrog Bologna and up into 11th place at the expense of AC Milan.

Recent results though suggest that Sassuolo could struggle to grab all three points as the hosts have registered just 1 win out of their last 6 matches overall in Serie A which was a 1-0 win away from home at Hellas Verona, but defeats to Parma, Atalanta, Inter Milan and Fiorentina have held Sassuolo back from pulling away from the relegation zone.

Sassuolo have also lost their last 3 home matches on the trot in Serie A too following losses to the latter three aforementioned teams, while their home record stands at 2-0-3 12/11 which includes earlier wins on home turf against Sampdoria and SPAL.

To some degree, Sassuolo’s defeats at home can be explained as they’ve been incurred against top half opposition, and the visit of 13th placed Bologna gives the hosts a chance to rectify their situation.

Bologna Prediction – Can Bologna get back on track?

A promising 3-match unbeaten start to their new Serie A campaign gave Bologna reason to be confident of a fairly successful season for the visitors as they earned a point in a 1-1 draw away from home at Hellas Verona and followed that up with back-to-back wins against SPAL and Brescia.

However, the wheels have well and truly fallen off since as Bologna have registered just 1 further victory in the Italian top flight from their subsequent 8 matches overall which was a 2-1 home win over bottom club, Sampdoria.

This recent poor 8-match sequence also includes 5 defeats to Roma, Udinese, Juventus, Cagliari and Inter Milan, so confidence is likely to be fragile at best as they prepare for this Friday night encounter at Sassuolo.

In addition, Bologna are without an away win from their last 4 matches on their travels, losing their last 3 matches on the trot on the road with defeats at the latter three aforementioned clubs, amidst an ordinary looking away record which stands at 1-2-3 8/10.


Key-Facts – Sassuolo vs Bologna

  • Sassuolo have lost their last 3 home matches on the trot in Serie A
  • Bologna have lost their last 3 away matches on the trot in Serie A
  • Bologna have won just 1 of their last 8 matches overall in Serie A


Betting Tips Verdict

This is therefore a fixture between two out of form teams but using the handicap on Sassuolo looks the best option here.
