Sassuolo vs. Milan 7/21/20 Serie A Soccer Pick, Odds, and Prediction
2020-07-21 15:45:00 EDT
Sassuolo is welcoming Milan to Mapei Stadium in round 35 in Italian Serie A.
Sassuolo has lost only 1 game since the restart, and that was in their first game back against when they played against Atalanta, but since then, Sassuolo has 4 draws and 4 wins, but they have conceded at least 1 goals in every game since the restart, 19 in total. The good news for Sassuolo is that they have also scored in every of their last 9 games in Serie A, 22 goals in total. With this fantastic streak, Sassuolo has climbed the standings to 8th place with 48 points, massive 63 scored goals, and 58 conceded goals. In their latest Serie A game against Cagliari on the road, Sassuolo was a much better team with 78% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 9 corner kicks, and a high 92% of the correct passes. Sassuolo has created a lot of good chances, but they were able to score only 1 goal. Even with the extra player on the field because Cagliari conceded a red card, Sassuolo conceded a goal, and this match ended in a 1-1 draw. Caputo has scored 18 goals for Sassuolo this season, while Berardi added 13 goals, and Boga added 11 goals. Berardi and Caputo both added 6 assists. Romagna, Obiang, Defrel, and Toljan are all injured and will not be playing in this match. Sassuolo still has time to get to the Europa League, but the competition for that is strong, but if Sassuolo continues to play like that, they might pull off a miracle.
Milan has been playing fantastic soccer since the restart, and they have 6 wins and 2 draws. During their last 8 games, Milan has scored a fantastic 25 goals, which is a significant improvement from the first half of the season, but not only that, Milan has improved on the defensive end as well, and Milan has conceded only 9 goals in their last 8 games. With 56 points, Milan is in 7th place, but they have the same amount of points as Napoli in 6th place, which is the last place that leads into the Europa League. Overall, Milan has scored 53 goals so far this season, which is solid, while they conceded 43 goals, and their defense is among the best in Serie A. In their latest Serie A game against Bologna at home, Milan was the better team with 51% of ball possession, massive 13 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, 5 bog chances created, and 80% of the correct passes. Milan was calm, dominant, and precise in this game, and they have deservedly so won this game 5-1. Honestly, I’m surprised with the way Milan is playing as of late, but it’s good, and I’m glad that Milan is finally finding their way back to the top of Serie A, but it’s a long and winding road.
Both Sassuolo and Milan are in great form since the restart, and both teams are scoring a lot of goals, but they are also conceding goals. Everything points towards over 2.5, or even 3.5, but I have a feeling this one might end in a draw.
