Our football match prediction:
Buoyed by a thrilling 6-2 win over Cagliari, Sassuolo head into Sunday’s football game against Torino. The Neroverdi proved their worth in the victory over the Rossoblu, with the team extending their unbeaten run in the league to seven games. Sassuolo have been scoring goals for fun of late and we predict that they are going to extend their goal-scoring run against Torino. It has to be noted that the Neroverdi found the net in each of their previous nine league fixtures. Il Toro suffered a heavy 5-0 loss to Napoli in their last home game in the Italian elite division and they were beaten by Genoa at Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris at the weekend. Both teams are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Sunday’s clash and we predict that fans will see a lively contest at Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino on the final day of the season.
