Sassuolo hosts Sampdoria
In a game in which both teams are looking for their first points for the new season, Sassuolo hosts Sampdoria at the MAPEI Stadium. Let’s take a look at this clash from the second round of the Serie A in our sure win prediction today.
In the first round of the league Sassuolo travelled to Turin to face Torino, but the match ended with a 2-1 win for the Bulls. Simone Zaza and Andrea Belotti gave an important advantage to the home side, while Francesco Caputo’s goal for Sassuolo made the game more interesting, but Torino kept their advantage.
Last season Sassuolo did well, finishing 11th in the league. Roberto De Zerbi remained a head coach of the team, so now he will try to improve on that performance. The new campaign didn’t start in the best way possible, but the season is long and it just began.
At the same time Sampdoria seriously dissapointed their fans in the opening game of the season. Samp hosted Lazio at the Luigi Ferraris in the first round and suffered a humilating 0-3 defeat. The new manager Eusebio Di Francesco was greeted with high hopes at Genova, but the way he started his career in Sampdoria is terrible.
Now Sampdoria and Di Francesco have an opportunity to redeem themselves. It’s always pretty hard to play at Sassuolo’s ground, but winning there is not impossible, too. Because of the bad performance against Lazio, it’s not impossible to see the manager making some changes in the line-up. Against Lazio Di Francesco picked Mehdi Leris, Jakub Jankto and Federico Bonazzoli from the bench. Maybe some of them would start against Sassuolo on Sunday.
That’s our sure win prediction today for the Serie A fixture between Sassuolo and Sampdoria at the MAPEI Stadium. We think that both teams have chances to win here. Let’s see.
