Competition: Serie A
Market: Sassuolo win
Odds: 4/5 @ 888sport
Hoping to build off of their stellar result in midweek, Sassuolo will welcome Empoli to the Mapei Stadium on Sunday afternoon smelling a golden chance.
Starting with the hosts, making the trip to Italian heavyweights Juventus earlier in the week, Sassuolo only once again underlined why they have largely impressed many across Serie A so far this season. Eventually claiming what was a stellar 2-1 win away at the Champions League outfit, Head Coach Alessio Dionisi has been filled with praise for his side’s recent purple patch. Finding a way to build off of a 3-1 romp at home against Venezia on October 23rd, the Neroverdi have now lost just one of their last five top-flight contests. With that sole defeat coming at the hands of defending champions Inter Milan, Sassuolo should be smelling a real chance on Sunday afternoon. It should also be noted, the last time they welcome Empoli to the Mapei Stadium, Dionisi’s men picked up a 1-0 victory.
As for the visitors, while Empoli might have picked up a much-needed victory away at Salernitana last weekend, it appears that might have just been a minor boost for the Serie A returners. Largely failing to build off of what was an eye-catching start to the 2021/22 campaign, the Blues were last seen in midweek getting hit with a deserved 2-0 defeat against Inter Milan on home soil. In fact, including back-to-back losses against Roma and Atalanta earlier in the month, Gli Azzurri have lost three of their last four top-flight outings. Knowing that they should face a stern test when they make the trip to the Mapei Stadium on Sunday afternoon, Aurelio Andreazzoli has also seen his side showing some worrying issues at the back. Shipping at least a pair of strikes in each of their last five Serie A outings, we’re backing a home victory here.
Bet: Sassuolo 4/5 to beat Empoli in Sunday’s Serie A contest @ 888sport
