Sassuolo return to MAPEI stadium after an incredible away win to Roma in their last fixture. Spezia also showed incredible defensive resilience to somehow grab a 2-1 over Inter Milan. Sassuolo play hosts to Spezia for Round 27 of Serie A on Friday, 5:30 pm (UTC).
Sassuolo have had somewhat of a rocky season and currently sit in 13th with 33 points. They have a very good form sheet, having won their last three games. Just one loss in their last seven games has been recorded.
Spezia sit just above the relegation zone at 17th place. They have amassed just 24 points in 26 games so far. The team has also been struggling to win games recently, with just one win in their last nine games.
Sassuolo do not have any injury concerns, but Ruan Tressoldi will miss the match after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season.
Spezia, on the other hand, have three players out with injuries. Central Midfielder Simone Bastoni, first choice RB Emil Holm, and Joao Mourinho won’t be available.
It’s quite obvious that Sassuolo are the better team, and our pick reflects just that. We are going with a straight-home win for Sassuolo. A good value bet at odds of 1.85 (-117 American; 17/20 Fractional).
Reason: Sassuolo are on a very good run, winning their last three in a row, including an away, win to Roma. The only loss in their last eight games was against Napoli, runaway league leaders.
Spezia’s injury concerns don’t make things much better. They average less than a goal per game and have scored just eight goals in their twelve away games. Sassuolo are ranked 8th in goals scored per match, and Spezia? The double of that – 16th.
