Our football match prediction:
Sassuolo play host to Bari at their MAPEI Stadium – Citta del Tricolore in the last 16 of the Coppa Italia. The Neroverdi defeated Spezia in the opening match of their Italian Cup campaign and seeing that they have been struggling in the Serie A in the first half of the season, we predict Christian Bucchi’s men will take Wednesday’s football game against Bari very seriously. Unlike previous seasons, Sassuolo have been struggling at home ground this term, but they are still considered favourites to win the tie against the Biancorossi. Bari’s main goal is to secure automatic promotion to the Serie A and that is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the Neroverdi. When the two teams faced each other in the Serie B Sassuolo recorded a 2-1 win over Bari and the history is likely to repeat itself.
