THE TEAM NEWS

SASSUOLO

  • After avoiding defeat in eight consecutive matches, Sassuolo have now lost their last two after they were defeated by Napoli at the weekend which means they have now failed to claim the three points in any of their last four matches.
  • Sassuolo fell behind in the opening 10 minutes and despite throwing plenty forward in a bid to get back on level terms, they were unable to do so and succumbed to a second goal in stoppage time which confirmed the loss.
  • They will be eager to end their run without a win as they host Genoa but they have several injury concerns including Mert Muldur who was forced from the field with an ankle injury at the weekend, although Gregoire Defrel and Pedro Obiang have an outside chance of returning.

GENOA

  • Genoa suffered a 0-3 loss to Internazionale at the weekend but they will be content with their performance in that game despite the scoreline and their fate at the wrong end of the table remains in their own hands following Lecce’s loss against Bologna.
  • Genoa made it difficult for Inter and despite falling behind in the 34th minute, they remained in the game right until the closing 10 minutes when their opponents were able to add a further two goals.
  • With a four-point gap separating Genoa and Lecce for the final relegation spot, a win from their final two matches will seal Genoa’s spot in next season’s Serie A and their chances of earning that here could be increased with Iago Falque pushing for a return to the side.

THE PREDICTION

Sassuolo have proven difficult to beat since the resumption of Serie A but they have now lost their last two matches and they will be eager to end the campaign on a high. It is still just two defeats in 10 for Sassuolo and they now have a strong chance of returning to winning ways as they host Genoa. The visitors are still in real danger but they can secure their spot in the league with a win here. With Genoa desperate for the points, they are likely to try and exploit Sassuolo’s four-match run without a win here and that should result in a game with plenty of goals.
