Our match prediction:
Sassuolo will be looking to make their Europa League debut in style when they take on Luzern in the third qualifying round at Swissporarena. The Neroverdi hammered Castelvetro in their final warm-up game and they will be looking to build on the win when they take on the Swiss outfit in the two-legged tie. Luzern kicked off the new Swiss Super League campaign in style, with the team beating Lugano in their opener and they are certainly capable of making life difficult for Sassuolo in the upcoming double-header. Luzern scored 2+ goals in each of their last seven home matches in the national championship and considering that Serie A teams often do not take Europa League matches seriously, we predict that the Swiss side are going to emerge triumphant in Thursday’s football clash. Taking everything into account, Luzern are likely to put an end to Sassuolo’s five-game winning run in all competitions.
