Player to watch – Andrea Pinamonti

The man who is perhaps most likely to break the deadlock here is Sassuolo forward Andrea Pinamonti. With 11 goals in Serie A this term, he’s five clear of any other player who may feature in this match.

Pinamonti fast out of the blocks

There have been few more reliable sources of early goals in Italy this term than Andrea Pinamonti. 82% of his goals have come in the first half, and he has scored an incredible six goals in the opening 15 minutes, more than half of his total.
