Sassuolo vs Chievo (By: Saconex)
Italy Serie A
Sassuolo (14) vs Chievo (20)
Sassuolo are desperate for 3 points now and I think chances are good for them to win this one. They are without a win 8 matches (0-3-5) and at some point they should be able to turn the weak trend around. They have only lost 4 matches at home all season though (4-7-4) and they are actually the fifth highest scoring home team of Serie A. Expect them to find the net tonight for sure. Marlon injured.
Chievo are still the bottom team and with 11 points in their hands the gap up to a safe spot is 16 points. In other words, they will get relegated for sure. They are coming from losing 0-3 at home vs Cagliari (13) and will probably go for it here, although their defence are lacking goals week after week. Depaoli & Meggiorini suspended. Jaroszynski injured.
* Sassuolo won the reverse fixture 0-2 back in November
* Sassuolo with average total goals of 3.07 (4th)
* Chievo with average total goals of 2.69 (11th)
Call me crazy to back up the hosts to win when they are without a victory in 8 matches. But they are facing the by far weakest team of the league, and if they are planning to turn this around this should be a perfect opportunity. Chievo will probably go for 3 points as well, and Sassuolo can get some space in their attack. Sassuolo to win this and the match to end with over 2.5 looks like a solid bet imo.
