Reason For Fiorentina vs Sassuolo Predictions
Sassuolo have conceded 10 goals in three games since the restart.
The hosts have scored in 11 of their 14 home games this season.
The Neroverdi are coming off consecutive 3-3 draws ahead of this one.
Fiorentina have drawn more games (10) than any other side in the league.
The hosts have picked up just one point since the restart, which has seen them slip out of Europa League contention. Instead, they're now looking over their shoulder. La Viola are just six points clear of the drop, so they could have another relegation scare in the run-in.
Sassuolo will be looking to push for a top 10 finish in the final 10 games of the season, with Europe looking a little out of their reach. That wasn't the case when the league restarted, but poor defensive displays since have left them out of the running. We see those issues continuing in our predictions here.
The visitors have conceded 10 goals in just three games since returning to action. They come into this one having shipped 24 goals in 14 away trips, so their chances of holding out on Wednesday seem slim. They've conceded in 71% of their away games, while they're allowing over 15 shots per game on the road this term. That should create openings for a Fiorentina side who have seen both teams score in their last three at home.
Fiorentina have scored in 11 of 14 at home, so getting forward shouldn't be an issue. However, Sassuolo are coming off consecutive 3-3 draws against Verona and Inter Milan, so they clearly have enough threat going forward. With both defences looking poor, our first prediction in this clash is to back both teams to score.
These two sides have shared two wins apiece and two draws over their last six Serie A meetings. They could be in for another point apiece, given how Sassuolo are playing at the minute. With just one win in five and following those back to back, high-scoring draws, we aren't backing the visitors for a win. Meanwhile, they have drawn 10 matches across Serie A this term, the highest in the division.
Fiorentina have won only three of their 14 home games in this campaign (D6 L5) - their worst home record at this stage of a season since 1970/71. Three of their last four at this ground have finished level, so we struggle to see either side winning this one. Given that we are backing goals in this clash, we are going with a 2-2 draw as our correct score prediction here.
