Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Bologna will look to bounce back from a 4-3 loss to Venezia when they face Sassuolo on Matchday 37. The Rossoblu have been having their ups and downs of late, but one thing is for sure, they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. As always, a man to watch in the home team will be Marko Arnautovic, who scored his 14th goal of the season at the weekend, while Dijks remains on the sidelines with injury.
The Neroverdi, on the other hand, collected only one point in total from the previous four league fixtures. Sassuolo will be with guards down in Sunday’s clash as well, and, taking everything into account, punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on over 2.5 goals. As for the away side, Kyriakopoulos misses the match through suspension, while all Obiang, Harroui, and Toljan are out of contention with injuries.
