Our football match prediction:
Sassuolo will be aiming to build on a come-from-behind win over Palermo when they take on Cesena in the Coppa Italia last 16 at their MAPEI Stadium. The Neroverdi are having a turbulent season, but they will be playing on only two fronts in the remainder of the season and we believe that they are going to find their best form very soon. It is well known that Sassuolo are a real force to be reckoned with at home and seeing that their next rivals Cesena suffered a heavy 3-0 loss to Hellas Verona in their last game in the Serie B, we predict that the hosts will emerge triumphant in Wednesday’s football match. Alessandro Matri scored a brace in the 4-1 win over Palermo, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay. Cesena are not having a season to remember and they are unlikely to shock the Serie A outfit in the Italian Cup last 16.
