Sassuolo to Win

Sassuolo 2-1

Reason for tip

Empoli have lost five of their last seven meetings with Sassuolo, and have only won one of their six home league games this term. The visitors have hit the net 10 times in their last six matches, and only two Serie A teams have managed more shots on target this season – if the Neroverdi keep that up, they will hit form eventually.

Empoli vs Sassuolo Predictions

  • Empoli have only won two of their 12 Serie A games this season, as well as just one of their six matches at home.
  • Sassuolo have won five of their last seven head-to-head league meetings with Empoli.
  • The Neroverdi have won three of their last six games, the exceptions being losses to strong sides in Inter Milan, Atalanta and Napoli.

Neroverdi can continue improvement

Having won just one of their first six games of the Serie A season, Sassuolo have posted three wins from their subsequent six outings, only losing to heavyweights Inter Milan, Atalanta, and Napoli. Having hit the net 10 times during that run, Alessio Dionisi’s men appear close to getting back to their best, and Saturday’s trip to Empoli represents a chance for them to continue their improvement.

Sassuolo have not lost to a team outside of Serie A’s top eight this season, beating Torino, Salernitana and Verona in their last six outings. Despite the loss of several key attackers, Dionisi’s team have continued to impress going forwards; only Napoli and Inter have managed more shots on target in Serie A this season, and their tally of 15.5 expected goals (xG) ranks them in the division’s top half.

Empoli, meanwhile, have a dire record against Sassuolo, losing five of their last seven head-to-head meetings with the Neroverdi, and have only recorded two wins all season – against struggling duo Bologna and Monza. Paolo Zanetti’s men have only one of their six home league games this campaign, and have suffered three defeats in their last five outings.

Sassuolo set for victory

Given Sassuolo’s excellent record against Empoli and their recent improvement, backing Dionisi’s men for victory against a side with just four wins from their last 34 matches looks prudent.

Meanwhile, both teams have scored in four of the visitors’ last seven games, as well as in six of Empoli’s last 10 matches, making a 2-1 away win a decent correct score prediction.
