How we calculate our stats

They have a single victory from their previous 14 trips in the league, while we are backing Brescia to make the most of their opponents struggles. The hosts have scored four times in two home games this term, while they are now boosted by Mario Balotelli, who scored his first goal for his hometown club in their 2-1 loss at Napoli on Sunday. The visitors have lost their last five games on the road in Serie A overall.

The biggest achievements in the club history were in 2007/2008 where the club won the Serie C1 and in season 2012/2013 were Sassuolo won the Serie B as well. Sassuolo hosts its home games in the Stadio Citta del Tricolore which holds a capacity for approximately 21 000 spectators. Sassuolo is also known as i Neroverdi and plays at home in black and green.

The hosts have scoring talent behind them while they have a swagger seen in their clashes with the bigger sides. Were going with a home win, along with a 2-1 victory after over 2.5 goals landed in six of Sassuolos last seven matches. Meanwhile, Sassuolo are on a dire run which has left Brescia looking wonderfully priced here. Brescia have pulled off two solid away wins this term and we are backing them to follow that up with a victory here.

The Neroverdi experienced all sorts of problems at the back in the 4-1 loss to the Orobici, which is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on Super Mario and Co. Mario Balotelli scored his first goal of the season in the 2-1 loss to Napoli and, no doubt, all eyes will be on the controversial attacker when Brescia take on Sassuolo at Stadio Mario Rigamonti.

Highlighted Player (Sandro Tonali):

Balotelli netted his first goal of the season against Napoli. Despite the match ending 2-1 in favour of Napoli, Brescia did not go down easily. Keep an eye out for him in this one as he will be the obvious threat up front for Brescia. Brescia had a rather slow start to the season but it seems as though their performances have been getting better with every match. The home side are looking to secure their third win of the season and given Sassuolos performance in their last match, this seems very probable. As expected, Brescia fell short in their last Serie A match against Napoli.

Sassuolo experienced all sorts of issues at the back in their 4-1 defeat last match against Atalanta. Sassuolo have been inconsistent with their quality and as a result they sit with just 6 points to their tally. With this being said, they have failed to secure points in all of their other matches. They have managed a few good performances this season such as their 3-0 and 4-1 victories over Spal and Sampdoria. On Saturday, they go up against a Brescia side who have been playing well as of late. Anything short of a strong performance will leave the door open for Super Mario and company to secure the win.

Last season saw Sassuolo rely on their home form to keep them safe, with 58% of their points coming at their own ground. The visitors come here looking vulnerable, especially after the manner of their last loss. They are vulnerable away, which Brescia should take advantage of. Meanwhile, Sassuolo were dismantled 4-1 by Atalanta at the weekend. That was the Neroverdis fourth defeat in six this season, with three losses from three games on the road.

Sassuolo Calcio was able to win one away victory. The team has been successful 0 out of 3 away games (0%) so far in this season. The team lost six matches in the foreign stadium and in two matches the teams separated with a draw. In the past 6 months, Sassuolo Calcio has won four matches, played five matches that ended in a draw, and lost five games.

Highlighted Team (Sassuolo):

The away side have struggled so far and are looking to turn things around with a win. The Serie A resumes on Friday with Brescia vs Sassuolo. Brescia are looking for their third win of the season. With that being said, beating this Brescia side at home will not be an easy task. Sassuolo make the trip to Stadio Mario Rigamonti with intentions of securing some points. Despite their slow start, they have been playing well as of late.
