Match Preview

  • With a 2-0 loss in their last Serie A (SA) outing, Sassuolo saw their winless run stretched to four top-flight matches (D2, L2). In fact, that result put an end to a run of ten straight league matches which featured goals at both ends, with only one of those seeing under 2.5 goals.
  • At home, the hosts’ matches this SA campaign have witnessed a league-high 4.18 goals per game on average, with all but one of their home league games producing over 2.5 goals. Fans should expect a lively start in any case, as the opener has been scored within 20 minutes in each of their last three league home matches.
  • Genoa’s 3-0 home win in their previous SA outing highlighted a trend, with each of their last four league games featuring three goals precisely (W2, L2). Scoring first could be a game decider regardless, as each of their last 13 league fixtures won/lost have seen the victorious side on the day score first.
  • Somewhat impressively, the visitors have lost just one their last eight SA road trips (W3, D4). Entertaining first halves have been a common theme for Genoa on the road this term, as a league-high 61.11% of their away games this SA campaign have seen over 1.5 first-half goals.
  • Players to watch: Francesco Caputo is a man in form, having scored one goal in four of Sassuolo’s last five league games. Meanwhile, veteran Goran Pandev has been Genoa’s first scorer in each of his last seven goalscoring SA games.
  • Stat attack: Sassuolo have scored 41.03% of their home league goals between the 31st minute and HT.
  • Genoa have scored 56.52% of their away league goals during the same period.
  • Four of the last five SA H2Hs held here have seen the half-time result mirror the final result.
