Sassuolo – Can Neroverdi finally double down at Mapei Stadium?

There were shocks aplenty right across Europe last weekend. The league leaders in England, France and Italy all succumbing to defeats. Sassuolo were responsible for the latter among those, creating a quite spectacular piece of history in the process. Goals from Gianluca Scamacca and Giacomo Raspadori – both of whom were returning fresh from suspensions – sealing an historic 2-0 victory away to Inter Milan.

The Neroverdi are now the first team to win away to both Milan outfits, as well as Juventus, in the same season since Fiorentina managed the near-impossible feat in 1955-56. As fate would have it, it is La Viola up next for Alessio Dionisi’s giant-killers. That win over the Nerazzurri snapped a four-match winless streak (D2 L2) for Sassuolo, now bidding for back-to-back league victories for only the second time this season.

Key Stat: Sassuolo, winless across their past four Serie A home games (D2 L2), have failed to follow up an away league win with another when playing at home in the very next fixture on all four previous instances of this happening in 2021-22 (D2 L2).


Second Half – Highest Scoring Half



Fiorentina – More to Viola than Vlahovic? 

Just when many expected this team to start faltering, they go and deliver an emphatic response to those detractors adamant results would deteriorate on the back of losing a certain Serbian to a certain club from Turin. Last week’s slender 1-0 victory at home to a direct rival for European qualification, Atalanta, brought up a second straight win for Vincenzo Italiano and his players. Displaying strength in unity.

Fiorentina are now looking to win three Serie A games on the bounce for a third time this season, after previously going through a sticky period which seen them register one win in six (D3 L2). Their record away to Sassuolo, though, isn’t the best. Winning only once at Mapei Stadium in the last six seasons (D3 L2). Three points a tall order, then, for a Viola side with two wins from its last nine Serie A away games (D2 L5).

Key Stat: In their latest away league game, Fiorentina came from behind to beat Spezia 2-1. It was only the second instance across ten previous Serie A away matches in which La Viola scored multiple times.

Sassuolo Vs Fiorentina Betting Advice

Last December in Florence, Sassuolo must have felt they were firmly on course to register their second away win over Fiorentina in three seasons having raced into a commanding 2-0 lead before half-time. Fiorentina rallied after the interval, though, scoring twice without replay to salvage a 2-2 draw which only served to extend the unbeaten run of their opponents in head-to-head matches to four (W2 D2).


Sassuolo Vs Fiorentina – Key Facts:

  • Fiorentina are without a win in five of their past six visits to Sassuolo in Serie A. The last three said fixtures all produced Over 2.5 Goals and Both Teams to Score.
  • However, both teams are struggling to average more than a goal per game in home/away league games, respectively. Sassuolo 1.31 at home. Fiorentina 1.08 away.
  • There have been more goals scored in the second half in each of the last three head-to-head encounters at Mapei Stadium.
