Sassuolo vs Genk by PatrickBateman
Sassuolo are last in their group, without a chance of going through. On Sunday they beat Empoli 3:0, which saw the end of their nine-game run without a victory. They are a team that plays open football, which can be seen from the amount of goals they score and concede. At home, they have been pretty good this season, rarely losing, and scoring regularly. They have nothing to play for but their pride tonight, but that should be enough to make it hard for Genk.
Genk are alongside Bilbao a team that secured their progress. They are currently in front of Bilbao, but with the same amount of points, which means they have to win if they want to be sure to finish on top of the group. They`ve been good at home, and Sunday`s loss against Lokeren was only the second one this season across all competitions. However, away from home, it is a different story. They have only one league and two cup wins on the road. Therefore they should try pretty hard if they want to come out as winners from this game.
Everything is clear in this game, Sassuolo can`t progress, and Genk have already secured their progress. Hosts have only their pride to play for, while the visitors have only to play for the first place, without the pressure of exiting Europe. This is probably the only away game this season for Genk in which they can play without a pressure, and they should play that way. They should be able to play their game wihout any concerns, and should at least score one. Sassuolo are also playing without pressure, and their attacking potential should secure them also at least one goal against not-anywhere-near solid Genk`s defense. I think this will be an open game, in which both teams will have attacking intent. And when looking at this season`s results, I don`t see how this game could end up without both teams scoring. Odds of 1.74 are nothing special, but in this situation, they are more than enough for me.
