Sassuolo vs Monza: An Intriguing Serie A Fixture
Sassuolo welcome Monza to the Mapei Stadium for a Serie A clash on Monday, October 2.
Sassuolo have recently caught a wave of momentum, winning against Serie A giants Inter Milan and Juventus. Monza, however, have had a more mixed season, currently finding themselves in the lower half of the table.
Sassuolo have garnered nine points from their opening six games. Their recent highlights include a stunning 2-1 win against Inter Milan and a 4-2 thrashing of Juventus at home. Their current standing is 9th in Serie A.
Forwards Andrea Pinamonti and Domenico Berardi have both notched up four goals this season, playing crucial roles in the team's success. Jeremy Toljan has also been vital, providing three assists.

Strengths and Tactics
Monza have scored four goals and provided four assists, which highlights their limitations upfront. However, they've only conceded seven goals, suggesting a relatively stable defense.
While Sassuolo have scored 11 goals and conceded 12, Monza have scored four and conceded seven. Sassuolo's goal difference stands at -1, while Monza's is -3.
Head to Head
Last season, Monza defeated Sassuolo 2-1 in May and drew 1-1 in January.
Given the recent form and statistics, the best bet appears to be 'Sassuolo to win or draw and over 1.5 goals' at odds of -150. Here's why:
- Strong Form: Sassuolo's recent victories against top teams indicate high morale and form.
- Goal-Scoring Ability: With 11 goals in six games, Sassuolo are likely to contribute to a high-scoring match.
- Monza's Struggles: Given Monza's mixed form and lower position in the table, they are less likely to pull off a win.
This Serie A fixture promises to be an interesting battle, with Sassuolo looking to capitalize on their recent form and Monza aiming to climb up the league table. Nevertheless, the smart money appears to be on Sassuolo to continue their winning ways.
