Sassuolo vs Torino

Torino have been the team who have had the games with the 2nd highest scoring games in the Serie A, with an average of 3.50 goals per game for the campaign. Torino have seen 13 out of 18 games having at least 3 goals in the game and a lot of that is due to their strong offense. They are the 3rd highest scorers in the league with 36 goals in 18 games, and are also the 2nd highest scorers on the road with 15 goals in 9 games. A lot of their scoring has relied on Belotti (9 goals), Falque (8 goals) and Ljajic (5 goals, 4 assists); and they have played well as a front 3 to deliver results for this Torino team who are now sitting in in 8th. Torino’s defensive record has been poor and that is what has costed them with 27 goals conceded leaving them bottom 6 in defense despite the signing of England no.1 keeper Joe Hart.

Sassuolo have been struggling, failing to win in any of their last 3 Serie A games, but overall have been the case like Leicester City who focussed on Europe and then sitting in 16th in the table. In fact Sassuolo have only won once in their last 10 games. The only positive thing is that without their main striker Berardi; they have still managed to find the back of the net scoring 24 goals in 18 games. The bigger problem for them has been defensively conceding almost 2 goals per game with 33 goals conceded during that time; and this is the main reason why they have struggled.
This game will definitely an extremely open one as they have been in games of both sides.

Over 2.5 goals.
