Competition: Serie A
Market: Sassuolo win
Odds: 7/10 @ 888sport
Hoping to widen their buffer in the top-half of the Serie A table on Friday evening, Sassuolo will welcome Spezia to the Mapei Stadium.
Starting with the hosts, after throwing away the lead last weekend and having to settle for a 2-2 draw against Salernitana, there is no doubt that Sassuolo will be seeking an immediate response here. Still battling it out in the top-half of the Serie A table, Head Coach Alessio Dionisi does find his side enjoying an eye-catching unbeaten run. Along with a hugely impressive 2-0 win away at defending Italian champions Inter Milan on February 20th, the Neroverdi are unbeaten in each of their last five Serie A outings on the spin. Also managing to snatch points off of both Roma and Fiorentina, Friday’s hosts have gained a reputation for their success on home soil. Smelling a golden chance at the Mapei Stadium here, it should be highlighted that Sassuolo have lost just a pair of contests in front of their own supporters since the end of October.
As for the visitors, managing to pick up what was a much-needed 2-0 win at home against relegation scrappers Cagliari last weekend, Spezia will be desperate to build off of that momentum here. However, with some in their camp still looking over their shoulder at the drop zone, Head Coach Thiago Motta had previously seen his side fail to win any of their other five Serie A matchups. Knowing that they could face a stern test on the road, it should also be highlighted that the Little Eagles have collected just a single point from their last three attempts away from the Stadio Alberto Picco. With that run highlighted by a disappointing 2-1 defeat away at Bologna on February 21st, we’re backing a home victory for Sassuolo on Friday evening.
Bet: Sassuolo 7/10 to beat Spezia in Friday’s Serie A showdown @ 888sport
