Bologna face his opponents, equal on points, it will likely be a thrilling encounter

With Bologna having secured all three points on their two previous outings, Thiago Motta’s men will doubtless be looking to retain their run after this fixture.

Also, Bologna keep finding ways to win, having secured three victories in their last four matches is astonishing this season. With 16 points, they currently sit thirteenth in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 4 wins, 6 losses and 4 draws having won four fixtures, drawn four meetings, and lost six games.

When Bologna host Sassuolo, they will do so on the back of three victories, three darts, and one losses on their own ground.

A win in this fixture would take Bologna’s points to 19 in the League.

Injury and illness have depleted Thiago Motta’s Bologna and they will likely be missing one key personnel for Saturday’s match.

Sassuolo face their opponents with equal points, with both keen to make progress

Following a 1-1 draw against Roma, Sassuolo will be hoping for more.

Also, Sassuolo have now lost four of their last six fixtures, a worrying statistic that has to be addressed by Manager Alessio Dionisi. Now they have 4 matches won, 6 games lost and 4 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in twelfth place, with a total of 16 points having won four fixtures, drawn four meetings, and lost six matches.

Sassuolo now travel, knowing that their current away form is woeful. So far this season they have won one game, drawn two matches, and lost four meetings matches on the road.

Sassuolo will see 19 points so far this season, should they secure a win.

Sassuolo’s ever growing list of players missing due to injury or illness to be a concern for Alessio Dionisi, ahead of this Saturday’s fixture against their opponents.
