Match Preview

  • At the wrong end of the Serie A (SA) table in terms of average goals scored (1.03) and conceded (1.86) per game, Benevento can at least take pride in picking up 30 points after 29 rounds – more than double what they managed after 29 rounds in their previous top-flight appearance. Equally commendable is their ability to fight back, having retrieved nine points after going 1-0 down (W2, D3, L11).
  • Despite that positivity, Benevento are not yet mathematically safe from the drop and are winless in eight SA home games (D4, L4). This eight-game sequence saw them register four HT clean sheets, but six goals (33.33%) conceded beyond the 70th minute punctured their hopes.
  • Aiming for a second consecutive SA top-ten finish, Sassuolo will be looking to return to winning ways after just one win across their last seven SA games (W1, D3, L3). Any result could be tight, however, as three of those four win/loss results arrived via a single-goal margin – the same as in Sassuolo’s reverse fixture win (1-0). Regardless, goals at both ends appears likely as 17 of Sassuolo’s last 18 SA games saw both teams score.
  • Likewise, nine of Sassuolo’s last ten SA away games produced goals at both ends. The visitors have, however, lost six of their last eight SA away outings (W1, D1, L6), including three on the bounce. They couldn’t have asked for a better fixture to bounce back though, as the ‘Neroverdi’ have won their last three SA away games against promoted sides.
  • Players to watch: Gianluca Lapadula was Benevento’s first goalscorer with his last three SA strikes, twice netting within the first ten minutes. Conversely, Filip Đuričić has scored Sassuolo’s first goal in two of his last three SA scoring games, but both beyond the 70th minute.
  • Hot stat: Sassuolo have conceded exactly once before HT in ten of their last 12 SA games.
