A match between Sassuolo and Empoli that’s designed to take place at the Mapei Stadium –Città del Tricolore will open the Serie A Matchday 5.
The Black and Greens are looking to return to winning ways instantly after a 2-1 defeat to Juventus at the Allianz Stadium last weekend, and also extend a 2-game winning streak at home. Roberto De Zerbi’s team have beaten Inter Milan by a goal to nil on the opening matchday, after which they outplayed Genoa, eventually securing a 5-3 victory. However, Sassuolo’s biggest problem is their away form, as they also failed to defeat Cagliari on the road, having played out a 2-2 draw at the Sardegna Arena.
On the other hand, after the promising start of the season that saw them outscoring Cagliari by two goals to nil at the Stadio Carlo Castellani, the Azzurri have significantly dropped in form, barely securing one point in the next three games. A 1-0 defeat to Lazio at home and a scoreless draw with Chievo on the road were preceded by a 2-1 loss to Genoa at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris, which is why Aurelio Andreazzoli’s side currently occupies the 16th place on the table just three points above the danger zone.
According to the local reports, the home team will enter the encounter at full strength, while Luca Antonelli, Manuel Pasqual, Lorenzo Polvani, and Alejandro Rodriguez won’t feature for the visitors.
