Sassuolo and SPAL will face each other on Thursday, January 14, while the Excitement of the Round of 16 in the Italian Cup continues. The starting time of the fight is 16:30.
Sassuolo, who lost only 1 game in the first 12 weeks of the Italian Serie A League and managed to join the top fight by making a great start to the league, entered a tough fixture in the last 5 weeks, winning only against Sampdoria and Genoa. Roberto De Zerbi and his students, who did not survive the defeat against Milan, Atalanta and Juventus, fell from 3rd place to 7th place. Even though the home team struggles against the gear teams of the league, it gets comfortable wins against the lower rivals. Sassuolo is also the favorite of the victory against SPAL, which he will host at home. On the Sassuolo front, Berardi, Ricci and Romagna are injured.
Competing for the summit in the Italian Serie B League, SPAL was not enough for the leadership while the 17th week was behind, and after gaining 29 points with 8 wins and 5 draws, it took the 4th place, 5 points behind the leadership seat. The guest team finally defeated Frosinone 2-1 on the road last week, after 2 consecutive defeats. Pasquale Marino and his team succeeded in eliminating Crotone, Bari and Monza in the Italian Cup, but even against their weak rivals, they had a hard time for the tour.
Sassuolo will make no mistake against SPAL competing in the lower league and the team that has the home advantage will put the tour ticket in their pocket.
