Italian Serie A Betting at Betfair


Sassuolo – Neroverdi in scintillating form and on the charge?

Catching seventh-placed Roma, thus ensuring entry into the newly created UEFA Conference League for next season, very much remains a possibility thanks in part to another vital win over the weekend. A hard-fought 2-1 success in Genoa making it five wins in their last six Serie A outings for Roberto De Zerbi’s side, with Sassuolo (W15 D11 L9) now unbeaten in six since going down fighting at Inter in early April.

The momentum is undoubtedly with the Neroverdi. Roma, by contrast, picked up their first league win for five games during the latest round, ahead of a tricky double header versus Inter Milan and Lazio. Victory over the recently deposed Italian champions Juventus, therefore, would possibly see De Zerbi’s in-form charges rise up to seventh, before clashes in Parma and back here on the final day for Lazio.

The hosts will be confident of a result on Wednesday. Sassuolo last lost a league game here at Mapei Stadium on 6 February – only of only three on home soil all season (W6 D8 L3). They are unbeaten in the last seven at home, which includes holding Atalanta, Napoli and Roma to entertaining draws, with the league’s eighth-best attack (58 in 35 games) on target in 24 of their last 25 Serie A matches.


Sassuolo or Draw/ Both To Score

Juventus – Faltering champs struggling to make top-four cut?

Speculation is rife as pressure continues to mount on Andre Pirlo, the Juventus (W20 D9 L6) manager who has already overseen the club’s first failed title defence in nearly a decade. Sunday’s 3-0 defeat to AC Milan at Juventus Stadium, however, means not even Champions League football is on the cards as thing stand. The Bianconeri currently on the outside looking in in fifth place, a point shy of Napoli in fourth.

This mess is still retrievable. However, can we rely upon a team that has only strung three consecutive Serie A wins together on three occasions this term doing just this across their final three fixtures? It seems a tall order. Especially after the display against Milan, who secured their first away win over The Old Lady for ten years. Pirlo’s beleaguered men welcome champions Inter to Turin this coming weekend.

Before then, the team in fifth faces a trip to the side in eighth. Juventus has not lost in Serie A to Sassuolo since 2015, prevailing in all but two of ten subsequent encounters, but were held here, 3-3, in last season’s corresponding fixture. A similar scoreline isn’t unrealistic, either. Juve are without a clean sheet for eleven league games (W6 D2 L3), managing two wins from their last seven away contests (D3 L2).

Sassuolo Vs Juventus Betting Advice

The previous seven meetings in Serie A between these teams has seen an average of 4.4 goals, with all seven going Over 2.5 Goals. Therefore, with neither in a position where they can contemplate even a draw – even though this was how this same fixture last term finished, the spoils shared following a pulsating six-goal affair – we could be in for another committed, full-throttle encounter in Emilia-Romagna.


Sassuolo Vs Juventus– Key Facts:

  • Juventus were made to work for their win in the reverse fixture, eventually seeing off the ten-men of Sassuolo 3-1 in Turin. Thus extending their unbeaten head-to-head run to ten matches (W8).
  • These teams played out a thrilling 3-3 draw here last season, though, with Sassuolo currently unbeaten on their own patch in seven Serie A matches (W3 D4).
  • Meanwhile, Juventus boast just two wins from their previous seven away league games (D3 L2), having gone eleven – home and away – without recording a clean sheet.


If I had to choose something from the Match Odds market, it would be a lay off the visitors. Juventus arrive at a ground in which the home side are unbeaten in seven Serie A home games having won once on their travels in their four most recent attempts, and only twice in the last seven. Meanwhile, Sassuolo are unbeaten in 2020/21 here against Atalanta, Napoli and Roma, so deserve the utmost respect.
