Bologna vs Sassuolo Prediction & Betting tips
In terms of potential and selections, Bologna and Sassuolo are teams that are outsiders for seventh and eighth place. In recent years, the mutual duels were often exciting. In the last five games, three or four goals were scored each time and both teams managed to score each time. Last season, Sassuolo was the boss, they won 3-1 and 1-2.
Given the selection and qualities of the trainer, Bologna can expect to participate in the left row, so far they have not yet managed to live up to expectations. The first game of the season was lost 2-0 to AC Milan, Zlatan Ibrahimovic was lord and master in the penalty area and untenable for the defense of Bologna. Subsequently, a big victory was booked at Parma where Roberto Soriano excelled with two goals in fifteen minutes. In addition, the 20-year-old midfielder Andreas Skov Olsen also managed to score, he did this on the instructions of man of the match Soriano.
A week later Bologna played against Benevento and Skov Olsen should have claimed the lead. The Dane should have scored two or three times but could not pass goalkeeper Lorenzo Montipo. As so often in football, the goal then falls on the other side, Benevento took a 1-0 victory.
Where the Rossoblu currently has no players in quarantine, quite a few players are missing due to injuries. Skov Olsen joined that list last week after he had to be taken off the field with the stretcher during an international match.
Sassuolo scored no less than 69 times in 38 matches last season and finished in eighth place. They made more hits than, for example, AC Milan and Napoli that ended above them. This is largely because Sassuolo also easily concedes goals. In total they took 63 goals against, in that area only seven teams did worse. This season, Sassuolo continues on the same foot. After a 1-1 draw in the opening game against Cagliari, PhD candidates Spezia and Crotone were beaten 4-1. Francesco Caputo scored four times against Spezia but saw three goals being disallowed, against Crotone the VAR was more favorable to him and both hits were approved.
That the club from Sassuolo is doing well is also evident from the fact that three players are fixed values at the national team. The 22-year-old Manuel Locatelli, the 33-year-old Francesco Caputo and the 26-year-old Domenico Berardi were all allowed to come in for the azzurri last international period.
