Sassuolo vs Empoli - Free Betting Tips

Sassuolo
Empoli

Sassuolo’s unbeaten start to the season came to an end last week as they lost 1-2 at champions Juventus. However, Neoverdi would aim to return to the winning ways when they host recently-promoted Empoli at Mapei Stadium-Città del Tricolore on Friday night. As things stand, Sassuolo occupy the third spot in the table. Empoli are back in the Italian top-tier after winning the Serie B title last season. They sit just above the bottom three in the league table.

The hosts are favourites to win three points at home against a side who is back in the top-tier after spending a season in Serie B. The hosts have also managed maximum points from their two home games with impressive wins over Inter Milan and Genoa. Meanwhile, Empoli have picked up a single point from their first two games on the road, so we don’t see much hope for them in Sassuolo. The visitors claimed a goalless draw at Chievo earlier this month, but we don’t see them repeating the feat against Sassuolo, who have scored in each of their four games. These statistics explain our picks in Sassuolo vs Empoli betting tips.

Sassuolo vs Empoli Betting Tips: Form Guide

A decent opportunity for Sassuolo to claim another win

Sassuolo have been the biggest surprise in the opening weeks of Serie A as they sit behind Juventus and Napoli in the table. The side from Modena started the new season in a spectacular manner as they claimed a 1-0 home win over Inter Milan. They followed that result with a 2-2 draw at Cagliari in the second week, courtesy of Kevin Boateng’s very late goal in the game. Sassuolo got back to winning ways with a 5-3 win over Genoa to claim their second home win of the season.

However, their bright start came to an end last week as they lost 2-1 in Turin. Cristiano Ronaldo scored a brace for the hosts while Khouma Babacar managed an injury-time consolation against the champions. Back at home this week, Sassuolo would be eager to bounce back from their defeat.

Both Kevin-Prince Boateng and Domenico Berardi have started Sassuolo’s every game this season, and both have scored two goals. We expect Boateng to keep his place in the middle of the front three for Sassuolo. Babacar has also made a strong claim for a place in starting eleven after finding the net in each of last two games. Federico Peluso appears to be the only absence for the hosts.

Now, a brief look at Empoli’s form guide in our Sassuolo vs Empoli Preview.

Empoli looking to get away from the danger zone

Empoli have seen a lot of movement between top two tiers of the Italian football in recent years. They are once again back in Serie A after winning the B title last season. As usual, their primary aim remains to secure their survival in the top division.

The club from Florence started their latest spell in Serie A with an impressive 2-0 home win over Cagliari. However, following the opening week, Empoli have failed to pick up a win in their three games. The win over Cagliari was followed by a 2-1 defeat to Genoa and a goalless draw with Chievo on the road. Last weekend, they suffered their first home defeat of the season as they lost 0-1 to Lazio. Coming into this game, the visitors are 17th in the league table with four points. They have been quite conservative at both ends of the pitch and their four games have witnessed a total of six goals. Empoli have scored only three goals so far and none in last two games. Striker Francesco Caputo has failed to find the net since his strike on the opening day. However, he is likely to lead the attack against Sassuolo. Luca Antonelli seems to be the only injury concern for the visitors.

Sassuolo vs Empoli Preview: Recent Meetings

Sassuolo hold a clear edge over their opponents in the recent head-to-head record. Since 2008, both sides have faced each other 16 times in league meetings – 10 in Serie B and 6 in Serie A. Sassuolo lead the way with nine wins while Empoli have managed only four.

Furthermore, Sassuolo are currently on a three-game winning run against their opponents. In the 2016-2017 Serie A season, Neoverdi claimed a double over their opponents with a 3-0 win in the corresponding fixture and a 3-1 win in the away fixture.

This fixture also tends to feature a lot of goals as five of last six meetings between these two sides have ended with over 2.5 goals.

Sassuolo vs Empoli Prediction: Comfortable Home Win

Sassuolo have cemented themselves in Serie A following their debut in Serie A five years ago. They surprised everyone with their sixth-place finish in 2015-16. However, since then they have managed a couple of mid-table finishes in 12th and 11th positions. They have made a decent start to life under new manager Roberto De Zerbi and a top-half finish looks like a very realistic target for them this season.

It is too early to predict which way Empoli’s season would go, but they currently find themselves in the 17th spot. In all likelihood, they are very likely to spend the majority of their season in and around their current position. They did well to get a point at Chievo, but Sassuolo are a far better attacking team and we don’t see Empoli getting away with a clean sheet from this game.

A home game against relegation candidates provides Neoverdi with an opportunity to keep hold of their position in the top three and they would grab it by both hands. They also have a convincing head-to-head record against their opponents and thus we believe that all indicators point towards a home win in this game.
