BETTING & MATCH PREVIEW
On Friday night it’s Sassuolo vs Torino with the action scheduled to kick off at 19:45. Visitors Torino find themselves stuck at the bottom of the table, while Sassuolo are currently second in Serie A.
It’s been a dream start to the league campaign for Sassuolo, with four games down, they’re just two points behind league leaders AC Milan. A string of high scoring games has propelled the ‘Neroverdi’ to the top of Serie A.
Last weekend Sassuolo beat Bologna 4-3 away from home. Before that match, the ‘Neroverdi’ put four past Crotone at the beginning of the month. The only blot on their copybook was an opening day draw with Cagliari.
As you’d expect, the bookmakers have made Sassuolo the clear favourites to take all three points in this clash. Boylesports are giving 8/15 on a home win and 4/1 on Torino winning away. The form book suggests it’s another win for Sassuolo, but it could also be worth looking at the total goals market for this game. Over 3.5 goals is priced at 6/5, and that looks like the best bet on this game.
It’s been a struggle for Torino in Serie A this year. Their record reads played three, lost three. Manager Marco Giampaolo will need to get this team winning if they’re to avoid a relegation battle. In 2019/20 Torino avoided relegation by a five-point margin.
Torino’s last game ended in a 2-3 defeat at home to Cagliari. Milinkovic-Savic was sent off in the 86th minute. Before that match, Torino went down 2-4 at home to Atalanta.
The Torino defence is leaking goals, and Sassuolo are scoring for fun; this combination should produce goals. Punters should look at the goals markets for value bets. Over 3.5 seems a decent chance but also consider the goalscorer markets—Francesco Caputo for Sassuolo and Belotti for Torino.
On the injury front, Sassuolo could be without Lukas Haraslin, Jeremy Toljan, Rogério and Filippo Romagna. Torino has Daniele Baselli on the treatment table.
