Our match prediction:
Round 31 of the Italian Serie A will be opened at Stadio Alberto Braglia, where Carpi host Sassuolo. Two Modena-based teams have met just once in history, in the reverse fixture, when i Neroverdi claimed all three points (1-0). Eusebio Di Francesco hope to repeat the success, since they still have a slim chance to book a place in Europe next term, but this would be easier said than done, since i Biancorossi have been recording solid results in their last five league fixtures (W2 D3). Such run of events drove Fabrizio Castori’s side one place above the dotted line, but are level on points with Palermo, first in the red zone, so a triumph would secure them a place away from the gutter. A hard battle is expected in Carpi, but their current home record makes us predict that i Biancorossi will manage to achieve a much needed triumph.
