This Sunday sees Sassuolo go head to head with Udinese at the MAPEI Stadium – Kick-off 3:00pm GMT.

Champion’s League hopefuls Udinese, travel to Sassuolo on Sunday, as fourth takes on twelfth in the League.

This season’s Serie A campaign, has so far seen Sassuolo achieve six points

Having dropped a total of four points in their past two games, Alessio Dionisi won’t be devastated by those results, but will be eager to secure a consistent run of form.

Also, a draw statistic of three in three fixtures is not all bad, but unfortunately will not bring the success Alessio Dionisi’s men wishes for ultimately. With a twelfth position in the league and 1 wins, 1 losses and 3 draws, they currently have six points in the League having won one game, drawn three meetings, and lost one game.

When Sassuolo host Udinese, they will do so on the back of one victory and one dart on their own ground.

A win in this fixture would take Sassuolo’s points to 9 in the League.

Sassuolo may have to resort to second choice players, given the number of first choice players that are now unavailable through injury, illness or suspension.

Udinese’s campaign so far has seen them accrue 10 points this season

Can Udinese make it three out of three, having turned over Roma 4-0 and Fiorentina 1-0 in their last two games?

Also, success in football comes from winning more games than your opponents, simply put, if Udinese can continue to extend their winning streak from three games then Andrea Sottil’s squad will have an incredible season. Now they have 3 matches won, 1 games lost and 1 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in fourth place, with a total of 10 points having won three matches, drawn one game, and lost one game.

Playing away from home, Udinese have won one game and lost one game.

A victory for Udinese would put them on 13 points.

Good Attacking Performance

Udinese will be pleased to have a good goal scoring record so far this season (9). This is largely down to the efforts of their stand-out attackers – Beto (2), Iyenoma Destiny Udogie (2), and Adam Masina (1). Udinese have conceded five goals.

Udinese are missing three players through injury or illness. This will affect Andrea Sottil’s selection choices significantly.
