Sassuolo vs ChievoVerona Match Prediction

By William Hall

A struggling Sassuolo side welcome inform Chievo to the Mapei Stadium this weekend, and with both teams needing points for very different reasons, this one could shape up to be a thriller. Sassuolo's Serie A campaign couln't have started much worse with five defeats in their opening seven games, with just one with to their names so far it seems like it could be a long season for the side. Chievo have looked bvery good over recent weeks and come into this one four games unbeaten and winning both of their last two. They will go into this one with a lot of confidence and will feel they have enough to get the better of Sassuolo. Read on for a full match preview complete with all our best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Looking at this game, I can only see one winner this weekend. Sassuolo have looked very poor in every game they have played so far this season and coming into this one off the back of a 6-1 thumping away to Lazio will not fill them with much confidence. Chievo have looked quite unbeatable in the last few weeks and will see this as a perfect opportunity to get another win on the board, extend their unbeaten run to five games, but more importantly, make it three wins on the road. If they can go and make it three wins in a row the confidence will be running high at the club which could make them push on for the rest of the season and possibly challenging for a European place. When these two teams played last season, Chievo were able to get the better of Sassuolo on both occasions, and I for one will not be arguing for that to happen once again this time around.

Sassuolo Preview

Sassuolo have looked nothing short of shocking this season, with five defeats in just seven games. Last time out they were smashed 6-1 away to Lazio and for the people who watched it, what happened in the second half? A solid first-half display saw them go in at half-time level which would have been a good point for the side away to one of the better teams in the league. However, they pressed the self-destruct button in the second half which saw the home team that day run riot. Sassuolo have the second worst defensive record so far this season, conceding a massive 15 goals in just seven matches. For any team in any league that is just not good enough and to only have four goals scored in response, they are going to keep struggling to pick up points regularly. last season Sassuolo didn't have the worst home form and will be hoping to get that kind of form back this weekend.

Sassuolo Team News

Sassuolo will be without four players this weekend with Federico Peluso (broken nose), Davide Frattesi (broken foot), Alex Meret (groin injury) and Marco Borriello (thigh injury) all suffering from injuries.

ChievoVerona Preview

Chievo have looked an excellent team in the last few weeks with two wins and two draws in their previous four matches. The 2-1 win over Fiorentina in their last was arguably their best win so far this season. What made it even better is that they went behind after just six minutes which made it look as if it was going to be a tough game for the side. However, goals either side of halftime from Castro won the game for the home side and extended their unbeaten run. Looking ahead to this game they will be feeling confident they can go and bag all three points which could take them as high as 6th in Serie A if all other results go their way. No one has ran away with the scoring so far this season for the side with none of their strikers above one goal. Castro's double last time out was enough to make him top scorer at the club which is always good to see from a midfielder.

ChievoVerona Team News

Chievo could be with a fully fit squad this weekend with Massimo Gobbi looking as if he will return after recovering from a thigh injury.
