Sassuolo vs. Milan Predictions and Preview
Milan have endured a difficult start to the season with just one victory in five league outings and three consecutive draws.
The Rossoneri have not followed up their late victory at home to Roma, being held by a series of ‘lower’ teams including Cagliari, Atalanta and newly-promoted Empoli.
Sassuolo meanwhile are flying – they have four victories from six with their only loss a 2-1 defeat at Juventus, while they have already beaten Inter at home.
That being said, the away side are favourites to win this encounter at odds of 6/5, with Sassuolo priced at 23/10 and the draw available at 12/5.
This is likely to be a cagey affair with the past three meetings producing a total of just five goals – so under 2.5 goals here appears to offer value at 1 with under 1.5 goals at 3/1.
A ‘double chance’ on Sassuolo to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 4/7 while a Milan win/draw outcome is at 4/11.
If you fancy the visiting side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 11/4.
One to watch for Sassuolo: Kevin-Prince Boateng has already netted three goals in five Serie A matches this season and is 3/1 to score against his former club here.
One to watch for Milan: Gonzalo Higuain has scored 113 Serie A goals since joining Napoli in 2013 and already has two this campaign, and he is 13/10 to find the net here.
Long shot: Sassuolo have kept three clean sheets in their last six home games and will look for a similar outcome here. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are available at 13/1.
