by | Sep 24, 2021 22:42

Sassuolo host Salernitana for the first time ever in Serie A, but the guests have won three on the bounce in Serie B and the Coppa Italia against the Neroverdi.

Alessio Dionisi’s men are struggling in the League and aim to respond after three consecutive defeats in Serie A.

Salernitana picked up their first point in the top flight with a 2-2 draw against Hellas Verona last time and hope to give the Neroverdi more trouble at the Mapei Stadium.

The hosts are 14th in the League with four points after five game and are four games without a win, after starting with a 3-2 success against Verona.

Salernitana aim to extend Sassuolo’s winless run in Reggio-Emilia with another good performance, having bounced back from 0-2 to draw 2-2 with Igor Tudor’s men during the week.
