Next Monday at 8:45pm GMT, on matchday 11 of the Serie A, we will see Sassuolo play Verona at the MAPEI Stadium.

Monday’s clash between Sassuolo and Verona, sees ninth take on eighteenth in the League.

With the Serie A season well into its stride, Sassuolo have managed to gain 12 points

Sassuolo will be keen to retain their winning form, having beaten Atalanta 2-1 in their last match.

Also, some statistics are more relevant than others they say, and two losses for Sassuolo seems very relevant. With 12 points, they currently sit ninth in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 3 wins, 4 losses and 3 draws having won three meetings, drawn three games, and lost four meetings.

When Sassuolo host Verona, they will do so on the back of two victories, one draw, and two losse on their own ground.

Winning this fixture will see Sassuolo on 15 points.

It is likely that four key players will miss Monday’s fixture, which is something of a concern for Alessio Dionisi and his Sassuolo team.

Verona will have doubtless licked their wounds, following their recent defeat to AC Milan at Stadio Marcantonio Bentegodi. Salvatore Bocchetti’s men will hope that is enough to deliver a positive result in this match.

Also, with relegation a real prospect for Verona, Salvatore Bocchetti must stop the poor run of form that has produced five losses in five games. Now they have 1 matches won, 7 games lost and 2 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in eighteenth place, with a total of five points having won one game, drawn two meetings, and lost seven matches.

Verona will travel to Sassuolo with a win record on the road that is quite unremarkable, with two darts and three defeats.

A victory for Hellas Verona would put them on 8 points.

Verona are likely to be missing eight of their key players when they start Monday’s game, due to injury and illness.
