Sassuolo vs Spezia Prediction
Watch Sassuolo vs Spezia Prediction on Uksports as Semplici hold out for Spezia and Sassuolo have been going well in the league with great stats.
The Serie A match between Sassuolo vs Spezia is about to held on tomorrow at Mapel stadium.
Both clubs are clashing against each other this weekend Italy having victories over Champions League-chasing opposition, with Sassuolo cornered in a bonkers Sunday night while Spezia defeated Inter last Friday.
Roma had conceded five league goals at home ground all season before Sassuolo arrived at the olimpico stadium and emerged with four goals and three points from a 4-3 win last weekend.
From that victory, Sassuolo have collected 16 points from their last seven league games, Napoli can have better stats, but not even the top team can match Sassuolo’s 16 goals in the following league.
The Neroverdi have had to discover a prolific edge given the dreadful season Andrea Consigli is enduring between the sticks; the veteran goalkeeper is recording the lowest save percentage in the whole of Serie A, conceding two out of every five shots which fly his way.
Despite the recent good performance in the league, Sassuolo remain firmly positioned in mid-table, nine points behind of the European spots but with a double-digit gap to the relegation zone.
On the other hand Spezia do not have much of a choicde,as they sit in 17th position, five points above Hellas Verona in the relegation zone.
Serie A may have less reacted on January transfer window, but Spezia were the second-biggest spenders as they tried to give comeback to their previous position with a total spend of €7.7m outlay on 11 players. However, this expenditure was financed by the loss of starting centre-back Jakub Kiwior to Arsenal for €25m.
Leonardo Semplici as new boss
Luca Gotti was manager during the winter outlay, but the club turned to Leonardo Semplici in February. The former boss has only taken charge of three matches but ended in a crushing defeat, taking five points since his appointment.
Semplici credits a team get together as he organised a dinner after his arrival to the club with a strong bond forged between the coach and his new squad. The detailed knowledge of his players was evident when Semplici changed formation and personnel at half time to inspire Spezia to the club’s first-ever victory against Inter last Friday.
Daniel Maldini was one of the half-time changes Semplici deployed against the Nerazzurri when switching from a 3-5-2 to a back four, with the 21-year-old coming off the bench to score 19 years after his father the Milan icon Paolo Maldini last found the net against Inter.
Sassuolo’s Ruan Tressoldi, who got sent off on his first appearance of the season, is suspended again after collecting his fifth yellow card of the campaign last weekend.
Injury and ill-discipline have limited the number of well performed players that Armand Lauriente, Andrea Pinamonti and Domenico Berardi have been able to make in attack alongside each other, but all three are set to be available again and full of confidence after each member of the trio scored against Roma.
Spezia’s Ligurian-born full-back Simone Bastoni has not been able to appear for his local club since January while nursing a medical injury.
Another defender Joao Moutinho was one of the club’s winter acquisitions but is yet to make a league start after picking up a foot injury, and Emil Holm is set to be out for few matches until april.
Semplici may have the idea to deploy Maldini and Albin Ekdal from the start of the game after this pair had such a positive energy at the match with inter.
Sassuolo vs Spezia Prediction
As of now both teams have been going well in leagues, but in accordance with the team stats and player injuries and previous matches, Sassuolo has an advantage over Spezia.
