Monday’s Football Bet of the Day see’s me delve into Serie A and I like the look of goals between two sides with plenty of attacking quality on show.
Sassuolo vs Juventus
🇮🇹 Serie A
⏰ Monday 25th April, 19:45
Juventus will look to go within one point of third-placed Napoli, as they travel to Emilia-Romagna to take on Sassuolo at the Mapei Stadium. The hosts are currently 10th in Serie A, whilst the visitors are fourth, five points clear of fifth-placed Roma.
Sassuolo lost for the second successive away match last time out, as they were defeated 1-0 by relegation-threatened Cagliari in Sardinia. Alessio Dionisi’s side have lost just two of their last 10 matches at home, winning each of their last three, including 2-1 wins over both Atalanta and Fiorentina. Sassuolo have found the back of the net in 28/33 of their Serie A fixtures this season, scoring in 13 of their last 14 on home turf. Sassuolo have found the back of the net on multiple occasions in 20/33 of their Serie A fixtures this season, including in each of their last five at home. Sassuolo have recorded just three clean sheets this season, with the Neroverdi conceding on 53 occasions.
Juventus scored a stoppage time equaliser at home to Bologna last time out, meaning they’ve lost just one of their last 19 Serie A fixtures. Max Allegri’s side are also unbeaten in each of their last 10 on their travels (W7-D3-L0), with their 1-2 win away to Cagliari last time out making it three away wins in succession. Juventus have found the back of the net in 29/33 of their Serie A fixtures this season, with their only blank away from home this season coming at the San Siro against Milan. The Old Lady have kept 13 clean sheets in Serie A this season, however, just five of those have come on their travels, with the Bianconeri conceding in each of their last four away.
Bet of the Day
Sassuolo are known for being involved in goal-heavy games and I’m expecting more goals as when the Old Lady come calling. The hosts have found the back of the net in 28/33 of their Serie A fixtures this season, scoring in 13 of their last 14 at home and they should at least net against a Juventus side without a clean sheet in each of their last four away. The Neroverdi have only kept three clean sheets all term and given Max Allegri’s side have scored in 29/33 of their Serie A fixtures, it would be a shock if they never scored here. Given 26 of Sassuolo’s fixtures have seen at least three strikes, I’m happy to have a play on a repeat here, with both sides contributing in what should be an entertaining match in Emilia-Romagna.
