Sassuolo Preview – Will Sassuolo’s excellent start to the season continue as they look to go top of Serie A?

It may be something of a surprise to see Sassuolo above the likes of Juventus, Atalanta and Inter Milan and it is just four games into the campaign, but the signs were there last season that this was a team to watch. They were eight games unbeaten going into the final match of the Serie A season and finished in eighth spot which was a terrific effort all things considered.

Their style of play also earned a lot of plaudits due to such an attacking approach and the free-scoring nature of their system under Roberto De Zerbi. The 69 goals they scored last season was more than Napoli and Milan, and they have picked up where they left off at the start of this campaign.


Our betting prediction:
Domenico Berardi to score in 90 minutes

(odds taken 2000 GMT, Tuesday 20 October)
Following a 1-1 draw with Cagliari on the opening weekend of the season, Sass have since went on to win their next three. Admittedly, they have come against teams you’d expect them to beat in the shape of Spezia, Crotone and Bologna. They have scored four goals in all three of those games highlighting that attacking prowess.
The impressive Domenico Berardi and experienced Francesco Caputo have combined for seven goals alone and will be confident of adding to that in this game. Both players were rewarded for their excellent starts to the season when playing for the Italian national team during the last international break.

Torino Preview – Can Torino end their miserable beginning to the campaign by finding their first points?

As good a start as it’s been for their opponents tomorrow, Torino are experiencing the complete opposite. Now under the care of Marco Giampaolo, they sit bottom of Serie A and are the only team in the division still searching for their first points of this season. It’s a real sobering beginning considering the expectation there has been on the club.

There’s no shortage of quality in this squad and it’s led by Andrea Belotti who despite his team’s struggles, continues to perform on an individual level. He’s scored all four of Torino’s goals this season.

The change in manager has done little so far to change the fortunes for a team who performed well below expectation last season. Cagliari were the latest team to take all three points from them, following in the footsteps of Fiorentina and Atalanta. They’ll simply have to defend a lot better to turn things around with eight conceded in three matches.

You have to go all the way back to the 5th of January for the last time Torino won a game away from home in the league. That was a 2-0 win against Roma.

Sassuolo vs Torino Betting Advice

It’s a game which screams goal as both teams are a lot better in attack than they are defending. Sassuolo’s four games have returned 19 goals already whilst the three matches Torino have played have seen a total of 12 goals. And the trend in recent fixtures also indicates goals in this one as both teams have scored in the last five meetings, and the same in nine of the last 11.

Key Facts – Sassuolo vs Torino Betting Tip

  • Sassuolo sit second coming into this match having won three and drawn one of their first four
  • Torino remain in search of their first points of the campaign – the only team in Serie A
  • The teams shared the wins last season – both winning 2-1 in their respective home games


Sassuolo are the most likely winners and I fancy them to get the three points, however the bet selection for this one is for the home win and both teams to score.
