Sassuolo vs Chievo Preview:

Possible starting lineups:

Consigli; Lirola, Ferrari, Demiral, Rogerio; Duncan, Sensi, Locatelli; Berardi, Babacar, Boga

Sorrentino; Frey, Andreolli, Barba, Jaroszynski; Leris, Diousse, Hetemaj; Giaccherini; Pucciarelli, Stepinski

Sassuolo currently sit on the 14th place with 32 points. They are seven points away from the drop zone and it is clear there is no space for any relaxation. The actual form is poor, Sassuolo have no victory on the last eight matches in Serie A. Even worse, they are in series of two defeats. First they lost 5:3 at home to Sampdoria. The Neroverdi were chaotic in their defending and conceded five goals at the Mapei Stadium. Coach Roberto De Zerbi was furious after the match and said 'the problem is psychological.' Last weekend Sassuolo suffered another defeat. They lost 2:1 in the local derby with Bologna. Sassuolo thought they had taken the lead on 13 minutes, but after the reaction from the VAR room, the goal was disallowed due to a small offside. Bologna took the advantage from the penalty in the 68th minute, but it seems the match will finish with a draw after the substitute Jeremie Boga scored for Sassuolo in the stoppage time. Nevertheless, Mattia Destro came off the bench and moments later restored Bologna’s lead. It was a quite unlucky defeat for Sassuolo. Coach De Zerbi has the majority of his players available for this match, only Claud Adjapong is sidelined through injury, while Marlon is questionable.

Chievo are the worst side in Serie A. The Flying Donkeys, who started the campaign with a three-point penalty for financial irregularities, have only eleven points after 29 rounds. The atmosphere in the squad isn't good, while the players confidence is low. With just one victory all season, they are already preparing for life in Serie B the next season. Frosinone, who have 17 points, look practically to join them. The actual form is poor, they have three defeats and just one draw on the last four matches in Serie A. Last weekend Chievo suffered a 3:0 home defeat to Cagliari. Coach Domenico Di Carlo was 'quite angry' after the high defeat and said he didn’t like the attitude of his players. To be worse, Fabio Depaoli saw red for a second bookable offense. As a result, he won't travel to Sassuolo due to suspension. His absence is a huge handicap for coach Di Carlo, particularly knowing Depaoli has three assists to his name, most of all players in the team. But there are more players sidelined through suspensions and injuries - Ezequiel Schelotto and Nenad Tomovic won't play due to injury, while Riccardo Meggiorini is banned. According to me, Chievo will be handicapped on this match.

Sassuolo vs Chievo Prediction:

Sassuolo should win this match. The hosts need three points to secure the status in Serie A. Chievo, meanwhile, are the bottom placed side in the league. The players will hardly find any motivation. Plus, the guests are handicapped as two important players (Fabio Depaoli and Riccardo Meggiorini) are suspended.
