Odds: 4/5 @ 888sport

Smelling a golden chance to cash in on their free-scoring purple patch, Sassuolo will welcome a struggling Torino to the
Mapei Stadium on Friday night.

Starting with the hosts, shocking many across Italy last season as they just missed out on a European finish, Sassuolo have certainly dragged that momentum into the New Year. With a reputation for their high-scoring encounters and becoming a real neutrals favourite, Roberto De Zerbi’s men were last seen returning from the international break as they managed to pick up what was the most dramatic of 4-3 wins against Bologna on the road. Although fans around the Mapei Stadium might still be calling on their side to find some much-needed stability at the back, they scored three goals in the final 25 minutes last weekend and the mood in their camp is at a red-hot high. With their sights set on trying to sneak themselves a Europa League spot this time around, Sassuolo have now scored a quartet of strikes in their last three appearances on the spin and will be hugely confident of extending their winning run on Friday.

As for the visitors, while the mood in Sassuolo’s camp remains at a red-hot high after returning from the international break, the same cannot be said for a struggling Torino. Coming under real scrutiny for their continued issues last season, many across Italy feel that the Bulls could be preparing for another relegation scrap this year. Last seen putting in what was another defensive disaster as they slumped to a 3-2 defeat against Cagliari on home soil, Head Coach Marco Giampaolo has seen his squad lose all three of their opening Serie A appearances this season. Now the only side in Italy’s top-tier who are yet to pick up a single point since opening the 2020/2021 campaign, Torino could be in for another overwhelming test on the road this week. Hit with a 2-1 defeat when they last faced off against Sassuolo, we’re backing a similar home victory on Friday night.
