Sassuolo vs Genoa Match Prediction

By Phill Barrs

Sassuolo vs Genoa betting tips & predictions

After a great season two years back, Sassuolo came back down to earth a little last season to finish in 12th place. They will begin this Serie A season, with a new manager, at home to a Genoa side that needs a lot of improvement if they are to be fighting for a spot in mid-table instead of in the relegation race. Sassuolo got their season off and running on Saturday when they played host to Spezia in the Coppa Italia. They would win the match 2-0 thanks to goals from Simone Missiroli and Domenico Berardi inside the first half hour. Genoa also got their season started with a win in the Coppa Italia, though they were forced to fight hard for theirs. They welcomed Cesena in on Sunday, and they won 2-1 after being forced to go to extra time with the Serie B side. Cesena had a half time lead, but it was erased six minutes later when the now-departed Giovanni Simeone scored. Cesena held out for extra time, but they were ultimately undone by a 95th minute winner from Diego Laxalt. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Sassuolo won both meetings last season to take a four to three edge over their visitors in the head to head battle all-time. And they have also only drawn one time down the years, although it has been a short history dating back to 2014. Sassuolo are highly favored, but in this instance it looks a decent time to possibly take a punt on Genoa at 23/10 odds. They aren't expected to win here, but a look at their team shows great promise and one that should come good eventually. When it does is unknown, but if it's now you can win a decent chunk of change. Domenico Berardi to score for the home side is at 11/2 for a half of your choosing. That looks a good bet as you know that Sassuolo are going to be getting him on the ball as much as they can from the get-go.

Sassuolo Preview

Sassuolo have a lot of work to do to return back to the top seven or eight, but they do have key attacker Domenico Berardi still at the club as of now. That's a big move for them, as he is seen as a true game breaker and one of Italy's biggest prospects. The new manager Cristian Bucchi, meanwhile, comes in and will have to prove he is up for the challenge after just one season with Perugia in Serie B. His season there wasn't the greatest, but he has gotten the call to manage Sassuolo anyway. As far as transfers go, they have mostly relied upon loaning players from Juventus and Roma in the hopes of finding a player to help them move up the ladder. They should be able to win at home over Genoa, but just how far they can realistically go is a big question mark.

Sassuolo Team News

There are no fresh injuries or suspensions to deal with for Sassuolo as they begin their Serie A campaign at home.

Genoa Preview

Ivan Juric remains in charge of Genoa after he kept them afloat last season. He's had an interesting time with them that saw him sacked before being asked to come back just a couple of months later! Juric has been given a lot of faith this term, and he has to come through and justify that. The good news is that they have some good players to build around. They just have to find the right fit to build their team around, and to see something click. They've made some decent signings as well, including bringing in Gianluca Lapadula and Adel Taarabt, a risky proposition, on loan.

Genoa Team News

Armando Izzo, a center back, will miss out for quite a while as he is suspended for match fixing in Serie B fixtures. Striker Giovanni Simeone has been sold to Fiorentina, so he is no longer available for them.
