Sassuolo is welcoming Milan to Mapei Stadium in round 13 in the Italian Serie A.
Sassuolo is still going strong in Serie A, and they have lost only 1 game so far this season. in their last 4 games, Sassuolo has 1 loss, 2 draws, and 1 win, and they are now in 5th place in the Serie A standings with 23 points, 22 scored goals, and 13 conceded goals. In their latest Serie A game, Sassuolo was playing on the road against Fiorentina, and they have had massive 67% of ball possession in that game, 5 shots on goal, 1 corner kick, 3 big chances created, and high 91% of the correct passes. Sassuolo got ahead in the 13th minute of the game, but Fiorentina got back from the penalty spot in the 35th minute. We have seen a lot of fouls in this game, but no goals in the second half. The final score of this game was 1-1. Caputo and Berardi have each scored 5 goals for Sassuolo so far this season, while Berardi added 4 assists as well. Romagna is the only injured player for Sassuolo, while Locatelli is suspended because of the yellow cards. Sassuolo is actually playing attractive soccer this season, I just hope they can manage their depth well because they will need it if they want to stay in the Champions League or the Europa League battle.
Milan is still undefeated in Serie A this season, and they are deservedly in the first place with 28 points, but they are slowly slipping. Milan has 2 draws in their last 2 Serie A games, and the absence of Ibrahimovic is quite visible for Milan. In their last Serie A game, Milan was playing on the road against Genoa, and they were the better team in this game with 58% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 10 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and 78% of the correct passes. Offensively, Milan is consistent this season, but their defense has been shaky as of late. Milan was losing twice in this game, but they were able to tie the score in the 83rd minute. The final score of this match was 2-2. Ibrahimovic is close to recovery, but he will not be playing this week. Kjaer, Bennancer, and Gabbia are also injured for Milan. Ibrahimovic is having a huge impact on this team, and he is their leading goalscorer with 10 goals, while Kessie added 4 goals. Milan is playing well overall, but as I’ve mentioned earlier, their defense is now a bit shaky which is something coach Pioli must improve fast.
Milan hasn’t lost a game on the road so far this season, and they have had plenty of success against Sassuolo on the road in the past. Sassuolo is also playing well this season, and they can score a ton of goals, which I expect them to do against this Milan’s defense. I expect goals, but I also think Milan will end their 2-game streak without a win here.
