Sassuolo got defeated 2:1 away to Bologna with a goal conceded deep into the added time. They have leveled up in the second minute of injury time and even though the manner of losing was a disappointing one, they surely did deserve the defeat.
For the entire game, they were being a team with fewer chances against simply more superior Bologna. They have no victory eight rounds but also come from a pretty difficult schedule.
Chievo couldn’t do much more in their 0:3 home defeat against Cagliari, as the team now really looks like a Serie B side. They have conceded all three goals within the first halftime and stood defeated convincingly even though they were the ones who have created far more.
Even when they appear decent in the offense, their defensive lineup finds a way to disappoint – this time it was against one of the worst teams on the road. They are now sixteen points behind the safe zone and relegation is a reality.
The hosts should have no fresh injury worries with midfielder Adjapong (4/1) being a long-term absentee. A team from Chievo misses midfielder Schelotto (4/0), goalkeeper Seculin (2/0) while defender Tomovic (9/1) remains doubtful with a leg problem. Right back Depaoli (25/0) and forward Meggiorini (19/2).
Sassuolo is far away from the perfect form, however, this game comes as a perfect chance for them to change the things for the better. They could go into the completely safe zone again and I don’t see Chievo stopping them this time either.
