A win by Sassuolo will extend their unbeaten run

Some impressive results in recent games saw Sassuolo go undefeated in six matches. In fact, the Black and Greens beat Milan and Lazio and drew with Napoli and Fiorentina in that run all of which are in the top eight of the Serie A table. However, being unstable at the beginning of the season is what kept Sassuolo from reaching the top six.

Nevertheless, their recent form is their best spell so far this term. Moreover, a win over Bologna here and coach Alessio Dionisi’s team will break into the top ten. Surely, Sassuolo’s aim is to finish better than the eighth position they finished last season. For that, the Black and Greens need to maintain their four-match unbeaten h2h record with the Rossoblu.

Bologna looking for their first win in three matches

Bologna have the same points as their hosts with 24 points but a weaker goal average. Comparatively, like Sassuolo, the Rossoblu had a lot of ups and downs in the first half of the season. Looking at their last eight matches, Bologna won four and lost four. However, Rossoblu’s last three games is their worst spell of the season which saw them lose all three. 

As we examine Bologna’s away performances, it is obvious that Rossoblu’s defense suffers when playing on the road. To illustrate, coach Mihajlovic’s team conceded on average 2.13 goals in their away matches. Also we have to go back to 2017 to find Bologna’s last win at the Mapei Stadium. Hence, coach Mihajlovic must find solutions for his defense by implementing pressure on the Sassuolo players. 

Sassuolo vs Bologna Prediction 

The last ten h2h meetings between these two have been very close. To clarify, there were three draws and the other seven matches ended with one goal difference. Also, six of those ten games ended in over 2.5 goals while BTTS happened in eight of them.

In effect, both of these outcomes are the favorites of the bookies. In addition, Sassuolo’s last 12 matches saw both teams score and over 2.5 goals at the same time. However, that is not the case with Bologna’s matches as just two of their last six matches saw both teams score.

In conclusion, we think the outcome of this game will be controlled by Sassuolo since the home side will take the initiative. As a result, for our first prediction, we will back both teams to score. And for our second one, we think we will see over 2.5 goals.
