Torino vs Sassuolo Match Preview
Torino are still in contention to qualify for the Europa League, but Sassuolo may be able to dent their chances as the race reaches its critical point.
Behind Juventus and Napoli, who will again finish first and second in Serie A, the battle for the Champions League and Europa League spots has been extremely tight and six more teams are still in the running to fill the Italian quota in those competitions next season.
For Torino, it’s looking like the Europa League at best and if they remain in their current seventh position in the table, they will be hoping fourth-placed Atalanta beat Lazio in Wednesday’s Coppa Italia final to boost their own prospects of playing continental football.
Walter Mazzarri’s side have lost only one of their last 15 games, 3-2 at home to Bologna, and did well to hold Juventus to a 1-1 draw in the Turin derby last time out when they led for well over an hour before Cristiano Ronaldo equalised.
However, Sassuolo are in decent form too, unbeaten in their last six matches including a win away to Fiorentina and a draw at Lazio, with Domenico Berardi back among the goals after a comparatively lean campaign by his standards.
Essentially, Torino look very short odds here and we will take a chance on Sassuolo claiming a point, especially with both teams being no strangers to draws this term.
