Our football match prediction:
Sassuolo will be looking to put an end to their three-game losing run in the Serie A when they welcome Torino at their MAPEI Stadium – Citta del Tricolore on Matchday 19. The Neroverdi have been struggling at the back of late as they conceded no less than seven goals in previous three league fixtures. Sassuolo, though, are tough to beat at home and that is giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Torino. The hosts are desperate to get back on course and we predict that they will grab something from Sunday’s football match. Il Toro did well to bounce back from a 5-3 loss to Napoli, with the team beating Genoa at home in their last game of the year and, taking everything into account, both teams are likely to score in the MAPEI Stadium – Citta del Tricolore clash. In each of last three meetings between Sassuolo and Torino in the Serie A both sides found the net.
