Our prediction for this Serie A match:
After suffering a 4-3 loss to Lazio at Stadio Olimpico, Genoa will be looking to move away from the danger zone when they take on Sassuolo in the Serie A round 35. The Rossoblu showed character in the defeat to Simone Inzaghi’s troops, but they eventually failed to grab something from the match. Anyhow, Genoa produce much better displays at home than on the travels, and we are positive that they are going to find the net in Sunday’s clash.
The Neroverdi, on the other hand, are two points behind the Europa Conference League berth. Given Sassuolo’s attacking potential, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. All Pellegrini, Biraschi, and Criscito are sidelined with injuries for the hosts, while Marlon (suspension) and Caputo (injury) are out of contention for the visiting team.
