Our football match prediction:
Sassuolo and Milan square off against each other at MAPEI Stadium – Citta del Tricolore on day 26 in what is expected to be one of the most entertaining games of Sunday’s program. Sassuolo aim to retain their spot in the top half of the standings and the Neroverdi will be looking to build on a 2-1 win over Udinese when they take on Vincenzo Montella’s troops in front of home fans. Eusebio Di Francesco’s men, though, have been struggling in matches against top-table sides this season and that is the main reason why home win should not be considered. The Rossoneri did remarkably well to beat Fiorentina at the weekend and they will be looking to keep their hopes of making it to the Europa League alive with a victory over Sassuolo. Carlos Bacca is likely to lead the line for Milan against Sassuolo and we predict that the former Sevilla man is going to pose a big threat for the opposition back-line in Sunday's football match.
Highligted Player (Fransesco Magnanelli):
Francesco Magnanelli is a Sassuolo midfielder, who was born on 12 November, 1984. His main position is defensive midfield, but he plays as a central midfielder as well. Magnanelli began his senior career at Gubbio and he played for the club in lower leagues from 2000 to 2002. He was part of Chievo during the 2002/2003 season, but he did not see any game action during his spelt with the Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi outfit. The Italian footballer joined Fiorentina in 2003 and he moved to Sangiovannesse one year later. After making seven league appearances for the club, Francesco Magnanelli made probably the best decision of his career when he signed a contract with Sassuolo in June 2015. He has been playing for the Neroverdi on regular basis and he scored one goal in 34 appearances for the club in the 2015/2016 Serie A campaign. His contract with Sassuolo expires on 30 June, 2017.
Highlighted Team (AC Milan):
AC Milan are regarded as one of the biggest club in Italy. The Rossoneri compete in the Italian Serie A and they have won 18 domestic trophies. Speaking of the club’s European success, Milan have clinched seven Champions League (European Cup) trophies. Milan were on the verge of beating Liverpool in the 2005 Champions League final, but the Premier League outfit came from three goals behind and eventually won the prestigious trophy on penalties. The Rossoneri play their home games at Stadio San Siro (80,018), the stadium that was opened in 1926. It is well known that Milan’s bitterest rivals are Inter and there have always been fireworks when the two local rivals face each other in the Derby della Madonnina. Milan were founded in 1899 by a lace-maker from England named Herbert Kilpin and a businessman Alfred Edwards. Milan’s home kits are red and black and that is why the team’s nickname is Rossoneri (The Red and Blacks). The likes of Alessandro Costacurta, Paolo Maldini, Franco Baresi, Roberto Donadoni, Dejan Savicevic, Frank Rijkaard, Marco van Basten, Ruud Gullit and Andrea Pirlo are the most famous footballers who have represented the San Siro outfit.
