Prediction for this match
After finishing eighth last season, Sassuolo will certainly have gone into the new Serie A season with confidence and they made a strong start, beating Hellas Verona 3-2 away Giacomo Raspadori, Filip Djuricic and Hamed Traore included in the match report.
The Neroverdi then picked up another commendable point when their home game against Sampdoria ended in a stalemate, although they may have been a bit disappointed after beating the game for large parts.
After going into the international break with four points from two games, Alessio DionisiThe team returned to action an hour later with a game against leaders Roma and Djuricic equalizing Bryan Cristante‘s opener seemed to deserve another commendable point.
But that shouldn’t be there Stephen El Shaarawy With a goal in the 91st minute, the team from the capital took all three points and continued their perfect start.
Nonetheless, Dionisi certainly has plenty of reasons to be positive about his side’s start, having narrowly lost to one of the league’s standout teams so far, and they hope to get back on track quickly on Friday if they welcome a Torino side that comes into play with renewed confidence.
The guests from Friday escaped relegation by only four points last season, ended up in 17th place and did not have a strong start to the new season.
After Turin defeated second division Cremonense on penalties in the first round of Coppa Italia, Torino started the league season with a home game against Atalanta and one Andrea Belotti Equalization 10 minutes before the end seemed to have saved a 1-1 draw, just for Roberto Piccoli to score a winning goal for the guests in the 93rd minute and condemn Il Toro to an excruciating defeat.
They then suffered a second consecutive defeat with the same result when they traveled to the Fiorentina as Simone Verdi‘s late goal wasn’t enough for a comeback after that Nicolas Gonzalez and Dusan Vlahovic had put the hosts in the lead with two goals in the last few minutes.
Ivan JuricAfter returning from the international break, however, the men managed to recover in style and beat the promoted Salernitana 4-0 Antonio Sanabria, Bremer, Tommaso Pobega and Sasa Lukic all opened their accounts for the season with a decisive win.
That will certainly fill I Granata with confidence, as they want to finish more comfortably in the Italian top division this time, but face another tough test on Friday with a trip to a dangerous Sassuolo team.

Sassuolo were made by the return of Domenico Berardi for the trip to Roma, as the decisive winger made his first appearance of the season after missing the start of the season due to an injury.
He prepared Filip Djuricic for the goal and both should play key roles in the attack line again with the winger Jeremie Boga Complete a dangerous trio behind the lone striker Giacomo Raspadori.
Pedro Obiang will be out due to injury, while the departure of the star midfielder Manuel Locatelli to Juventus in the summer Davide Frattesi and Maxime Lopez enter into a partnership in the engine room.
Turin are unlikely to make any big changes after Sunday’s impressive win despite the fact that there were several players on the bench eager to break into the starting XI, including the loaner from Leicester City Dennis Praet and talented right-back Ola Aina.
Striker Andrea Belotti has not been able to set up the squad for this game and it is unlikely that he will be ready to start on Friday.
Ricardo Rodriguez, Bremer and David Zima looked strong as a back three and Ivan Juric is not expected to rig his line of defense.
Sassuolo possible starting line-up:
Consigli; Toljan, Chiriches, Ferrari, Rogerio; Fratessi, Lopez; Berardi, Djuricic, Boga; Raspadori
Turin possible starting line-up:
Milinkovic-Savic; Zima, Bremer, Rodriguez; Singo, Lukic, Praet, Ansaldi; Linetty, Sanabria, Pjaca
Probability: Sassuolo 2-1 Torino
While Torino impressed last time around, we think the hosts have a far stronger squad, especially with Berardi’s return and the absence of Belotti for the visitors.
Il Toro fought valiantly against two strong teams in the first two games of the season, but suffered narrow defeats in the end. We will see a similar result on Friday.
