Serie A Match Preview: Sassuolo vs. Genoa

Updated: May 7, 2014

Match Date: 11 May 2014 (local time)

Venue: Città del Tricolore


Already on the verge of survival, Sassuolo is in dire need of yet another victory to guarantee their appearance for the next season. The Neroverdis are pitted to meet Genoa, which is desperate for a victory after enduring a losing streak.


Aside from Catania, which thrashed Roma, Sassuolo also made a stunning victory when it outlasted another Serie A giant, Fiorentina. Domenico Berardi’s hat-trick did not only give them the edge, but also a renewed confidence, which is a crucial ingredient in its attempt to further veer away from the relegation zone.


In terms of team form, Sassuolo has the evident advantage over Genoa. The former has managed to secure 3 victories in its last 6 matches. One of them ended in an even steven finish, while the remaining 2 clashes resulted in disappointing defeats. Nevertheless, this is much better compared to that of Genoa.


The Rossoblus are trapped in a winless streak during its last 6 matches. This explains why despite the fact that they have better rank, they cannot be regarded as the top pick of sports betting sites.


Giving them even more problems is the unfortunate scenario of missing Stefano Sturaro. The midfielder is expected to miss the club’s last 2 matches after injuring his shoulder and ankle. After Sassuolo, Genoa’s next match is pitted against the capital club, AS Roma and this situation also adds more pressure to the struggling club.
