Sassuolo - Perugia Prediction, Picks and Tips
Wednesday afternoon 3 pm! Even though "Bella Italia" traditionally takes longer lunch break, there is no need for a prophet to say that this game of the fourth Coppa Italia round will not be well attended. At the unusual time on a working day, it comes in the region of Emilia-Romagna for the duel between the first division Sassuolo and Perugia! The Italian Cup has a quite unusual mode anyway. The top eight of the past season only intervene in the round of 16 in the tournament. We are currently in the fourth round - the round before the official knockout round. The eight opponents of the top eight will be determined this week and it does not necessarily have the underdog home right. This significantly reduces the chances of surprises!
Roberto de Zerbi's Green-Blacks were responsible for the change at the top of Italian Serie A last weekend. For the first time in the club's history, Sassuolo Calcio celebrated a point win in Turin with Dominator Juventus. After the first six away games were all lost - some of them clearly - the center stand made a notable 2-2 draw. Torino's Andrea Consigli, center-back Gian Marco Ferrari and Vlad Chiriches, full-back Rogerio, and top striker Domenico Berardi and Gregoire Defrel all missed out on six crucial goals for Turin's loss of points. Especially goalkeeper Stefano Turati (19 years) delivered a true talent test in his Serie A debut. The unexpected point win at the championship, however, does not change the fact that the de Zerbi-Elf currently can not be satisfied with their own performance. Although the team still has a catch-up game against bottom Brescia Calcio in front of the chest, but 14th place is still a disappointment for the green-blacks. In the previous home games this season, the fans got their money's worth. No fewer than 30 goals were scored in seven games. On average, this results in more than four hits per home game. In the bets on the home win of the favorite we have a little bellyache, because de Zerbi will probably send a very young team into the race.
For several years, the AC Perugia in the Italian Serie A was a fixed component. The club was represented in the 2003/04 season last time in the upper house. One year later, although sporty, the resurgence was successful, due to financial problems, however, the license was denied and a successor club was founded. Perugia had to start in the lowlands of Italian football and laboriously struggled back into paid football. Since the season 2014/15, the team is represented again in the second division. Two times, the club only narrowly failed in the promotion play-offs on the return to the Italian Football House of Lords. On the coaching bank Perugia has had big names for years. Most recently, former world-class defender Alessandro Nesta worked for two years. In the current Serie B table, Perugia ranks third, equal to second-placed Cittadella. However, the placement is not very significant at the moment, as there are just six miserable points between rank two and rank 16 (relegation). However, the current shape curve is a bit down in the Oddo-Elf, because only two of the last six competitive games were won. In contrast to Sassuolo, the second division will come close to best, but we do not recognize any value between Sassuolo and Perugia on the score!
