Empoli vs Sassuolo – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Empoli were unbeaten in three of their last four home matches ahead of their clash with Sassuolo on Sunday. Find our top three predictions for the fixture below.

Sassuolo Double Chance

Sassuolo have been toppled just once in their last six Serie A away assignments, forcing surprise victories at Juventus and AC Milan along the way, and their knack for picking up points on the road could come in handy again when they visit Empoli. The hosts have taken 18 points on their travels compared to just ten on home soil this term and their inclination for coming up short at the Stadio Carlo Castellani means Sassuolo are worth backing in the double chance market.

Half Time Both Teams to Score

We’re pursuing a niche market for our second prediction this week and we recommend backing both teams to score in the first half on Sunday. Sassuolo’s Serie A away fixtures have been hugely entertaining affairs this season, with over 2.5 goals and both teams to score landing in 100% of their nine tests on the road. The visitors notched in the first half in eight of those matches, though their return of zero clean away clean sheets since the summer suggests goals at both ends are likely before the break.
