Fiorentina vs Sassuolo predictions and betting tips for the Serie A fixture tonight. Both these sides are safe in mid-table with nothing but league position left to play for, so who will come out on top? See our preview and predictions below.
Kick-off time: 8pm BST
Date: Monday 29th April
Venue: Stadio Artemio Franchi
Fiorentina currently sit in 11th place in the Serie A table, two points ahead of tonight’s opponents Sassuolo. They are 16 points off the European places and 11 points clear of relegation, so there is nothing left to play for, however Viola will want to finish the season as high in the table as possible as Vincenzo Montella looks to hold onto his job. Last year, the club had to deal with the shocking news that the Fiorentina captain David Astori had died at the age of 31 and that understandably rocked the club to the core.
They lost their Coppa Italia semi-final to Atalanta last week, where we correctly predicted the 2-1 correct score bet, and that result has effectively ended their season, so it ramins to be seen how that has effected the team.
Sassuolo will have their sights set on a top half finish but need to start picking up wins rather than draws. Earlier in the season Neroverdi had the chance of a European place but that has gone now. Drawing 14 of their 33 matches is far too many and that could be 15 after tonight.
Both of these teams go into this match on winless streaks but there have been a lot of draws, Fiorentina have failed to win in 11 matches now but in their last seven games at home, six of them have ended in draws. That is a quite remarkable record. As for Sassuolo, they’ve won just once in their last 12 matches and their last three games have ended in draws. With that in mind, it is hard to predict anything other than another draw for the first of tonight’s Fiorentina vs Sassuolo predictions. The best odds for this are 11/4 with Bet Victor.
With the results record of both of these teams coming into tonight’s Serie A fixture, the draw was the only choice for our betting tips and if you want to bet on a bigger odds selection, then the 7/1 for 1-1 appeals. Looking at the H2H statistics for the sides, two of their last four meetings have ended in draws.
Sassuolo’s last match ended in a 1-1 draw when they played Udinese away from home, and their previous away match was a 2-2 draw at Lazio. As mentioned above, Fiorentina are on a remarkable run of recent results and two of their last four have ended in this predicted correct score, so the last of our Fiorentina vs Sassuolo betting tips is for the score to be 1-1.
