Our football match prediction:
Sassuolo will be looking to make amends for an embarrassing 6-1 loss to Lazio when they take on Chievo at their MAPEI Stadium – Citta del Tricolore on Sunday afternoon. The Neroverdi suffered five defeats in last six league matches and, no doubt, they are low on confidence ahead of the visit of Chievo. Sassuolo’s main goal is to secure the top-flight survival, but it is more than obvious that French winger Gregoire Defrel is going to be sorely missed in the 2017/2018 Serie A campaign. The Mussi Volanti, on the other hand, proved their worth in a 2-1 win over Fiorentina and they are on a four-game unbeaten run in the national championship ahead of the trip to Reggio Emilia. Chievo have been in a much better form than Sassuolo of late and away win should be considered. Lucas Castro scored a brace in the 2-1 win over Viola and he will be the man to watch in the away team.
