Salernitana – Sassuolo Predictions and Preview

  • When gaining a point with a 1-1 Serie A (SA) draw against Torino, Salernitana recorded the first instance of two exact H2H results (with the same goalscorers) against a single opponent for the first time since 1968/69. Furthermore, it was also their sixth consecutive stalemate, which unsurprisingly remains their most common result since coach Paulo Sousa came to town (W1, D6, L1).
  • Nobody appears to be complaining as it has helped them to stabilize their position, and with a seven-point cushion above the relegation places, the Campania side are aiming for a third consecutive top-flight campaign. However, with only one win to their name in home matches against sides starting this round above them (D4, L5), starting the final breakaway here won’t be easy.
  • Sassuolo were deep in the relegation dogfight alongside Salernitana just a few months ago, but an impressive run of five wins across the last seven matches (D1, L1) has propelled them into the top half. Their coach Alessio Dionisi instrumented a masterstroke last round when Sassuolo beat Juventus 1-0 as well, with a clever substitution that followed a rather drab first-half performance.
  • The visitors have been ruthless travellers recently, losing just one of their last six away league outings (W3, D2), including nine combined goals scored against top-four contenders Roma and Milan. Another prolific performance might be on the cards here as Sassuolo won the reverse fixture 5-0, whilst scoring exactly twice before the break in their last two H2Hs.
  • Players to watch: The home fans will be hoping to see Tonny Vilhena strike again as Salernitana are unbeaten in each of his four goalscoring SA outings (W2, D2). In his 250th appearance last round, Sassuolo’s French striker Gregoire Defrel notched up another milestone with his 50th SA goal.
  • Hot stat: Sassuolo have won 60% of their SA matches against teams starting this round 15th or lower (W6, D2, L2).
