Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Sassuolo and Salernitana square off against each other at Mapei Stadium in a highly-anticipated Serie A game. The Neroverdi aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Torino, and the bookies see them as slim favourites to win Sunday’s clash. Keep in mind, though, that all Gregoire Defrel, Domenico Berardi, Hamed Junior Traore, Mert Muldur, and Martin Erlic are sidelined with injuries.
The visitors, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team failing to win the previous four league fixtures. In their last meeting at the venue Sassuolo defeated Salernitana thanks to Domenico Berardi’s goal, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself. All Federico Fazio, Boulaye Dia, Ivan Radovanovic, Franck Ribery, Emil Bohinen, and Matteo Lovato should miss out with injuries for the away team.
Highlighted Player (Domenico Berardi):
Once one of the most promising young players in Serie A, Domenico Berardi is the Italian footballer that plays for Sassuolo and the Italy national team. Born in Cairati, Calabria, the forward begun his professional career back in 2012, when he helped the Neroverdi win Serie B and play in Serie A next season and was named as the best player of the competition, only 18 years of age.
He made his first appearance for the Italy U19 national team in the same season. His excellent performances draw the attention of Juventus and the Old Lady confirmed in the beginning of the Season 2013/14 that Domenico Berardi joined the club on a co-ownership deal.
The player never played for Juventus because he remained in Sassuolo and he recently signed a new contract with the Neroverdi. The 24-year-old right winger, who can also play as a left winger and a second striker, made his first appearance in the senior national team in June 2018.
