Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Sassuolo will be aiming to make amends for a 2-1 loss to Torino when they take on Salernitana in the Serie A round 12. The Neroverdi have been struggling to find their best form of late, but this seems to be an ideal opportunity for the hosts to get back on course. Serbia midfielder Uros Racic could sneak into the starting XI, while both Matheus Henrique and Agustin Alvarez remain on the sidelines with injuries.
I Granata, on the other hand, failed to impress in back-to-back losses to Genoa and Napoli and seeing that Sassuolo defeated Salernitana in each of their last four meetings at Mapei Stadium, home win should be considered. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team ahead of the trip to Reggio Emilia, but that is unlikely to help them grab something from Friday’s encounter.
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.
