Genoa vs Sassuolo Match Preview
The bottom club in Serie A is Genoa after they have spent the past few weeks sliding down the table. They come into this game desperate for something to turn around their season as they have failed to pick up a win from their last eight games. They host Sassuolo here who were down towards the bottom of the table themselves not too long ago, but they fared well in December and that has lifted them up to mid table, something they will be looking to build on as we start 2020.
Although they only picked up one win in December, Sassuolo were also only beaten once in the month, with three draws too. Those draws all came against top teams, Juventus, Cagliari and AC Milan, teams who are above them. They deserve credit for that, and have been playing better than their run suggests, so the hope is that they can have a good start to 2020 and first off that means winning this game.
We are backing a Sassuolo win here, they offer good value away from home against the bottom club and are too big to ignore. For our second bet of the game we are focusing on the stats that show Genoa are struggling to score goals, and we are going to back Sassuolo to record a clean sheet in this game, another pick that looks to provide good value at a nice price.
