Reason for Torino vs Sassuolo Predictions
Torino extended their stubborn unbeaten run in the Italian top flight on the weekend when they recorded a narrow but vital 1-0 win away from home at Cagliari to keep their heads above water and a five-point cushion above the relegation zone. Torino had previously drawn each of their preceding five matches on the trot with stalemates against Spezia, Benevento, Fiorentina, Atalanta, and Genoa. Still, the hosts are now unbeaten in their last six games, which has helped ease their relegation fears. Indeed, Torino has lost just once in their last 11 matches overall and away at 2nd placed AC Milan, so confidence is growing amongst the Torino camp ahead of this important encounter with Sassuolo on Friday night. However, Torino is still searching for their first home win of the season as they’ve drawn seven and lost 4, so the goals market may be the best option here as 8 of Torino’s 11 home matches have resulted in both teams scoring. Rolando Mandragora has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup.
Sassuolo was held to a frustrating 1-1 draw at home by Bologna on the weekend, which meant that Sassuolo remained in 8th place in the Serie A table. Recent results have shown a decline in the visitors’ form as they’ve managed just one win out of their last seven matches overall. Hopes of achieving a possible top-six finish appear to be dwindling as Sassuolo now trails 6th placed Lazio by an eight-point margin ahead of this Friday night clash away at Torino. But as the prospects of an away win here seem slim at best, the goals market offers a promising alternative. Although Sassuolo’s last 12 matches have yielded just three league wins, each of these 12 matches has resulted in both teams scoring, and this looks the best option for this upcoming encounter. Domenico Berardi is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and the greatest virtue of this guy is speed. Filip Đuričić is the real leader of the team, all praise for him.
It is going to be a very tight clash in which both sides have the chance to take points. It won’t be surprising if the game ends in a draw.
We can expect a big fight between these two teams, and both of them should be able to score. We don’t believe either side will keep the clean sheet.
