Our football match prediction:
MAPEI Stadium – Citta del Tricolore will host Sunday’s football match between Sassuolo and Genoa. Gregoire Defrel, who scored 12 goals in the 2016/2017 Serie A season, left Sassuolo in the summer transfer window, but Domenico Berardi is still part of the team and he is likely to lead the line for the hosts against Genoa. The Neroverdi are tough to beat at home and they will be looking to build on a 2-0 win over Spezia when they face Genoa on the opening day of the season. The Rossoblu were struggling on the road in the Italian top flight last season and despite the fact that they impressed in pre-season, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts in this one. You should know that Sassuolo recorded a 2-0 win over Genoa in their last meeting at MAPEI Stadium – Citta del Tricolore in the Serie A.
