Sassuolo faces an outstanding Fiorentina team in a crucial match on Friday at the Stadio Citta del Tricolore as the Serie A returns to action this week with another round of games. Fiorentina, finalists in the Europa Conference League, will go to Sassuolo on Friday night hoping to finish their Serie A season on a high note.
Before the last round of games, the visitors are ninth in the standings, level on points with eighth-placed Torino, and Sassuolo are 13th, one point behind Udinese in 12th place.
Sassuolo vs Fiorentina
In the Serie A rankings, Sassuolo is currently in 13th place and has not played well this year. After being held to a 2-2 tie by Sampdoria the previous week, the home team will want to step it up in this match.
On the other side, Fiorentina has struggled with consistency throughout their campaign and is now in ninth place in the league rankings. La Viola narrowly defeated AS Roma 2-1 in their previous match, and they’ll try for a similar outcome this week.
The Neroverdi struggled defensively in their previous five league games, but it shouldn’t be shocking given that they have nothing to play for in the season finale. On the other hand, the Viola want to build on a 2-1 victory over AS Roma. However, the visitors will have their sights set on the Conference League championship match against West Ham, which is likely the key factor in our decision to back Sassuolo this time.
This season, the Black and Greens have performed admirably in front of their home crowd, earning 28 points from 18 games on the strength of eight victories, four ties, and six losses.
It’s fair to say that the visitors will be looking elsewhere since Sassuolo will be hosting a Fiorentina team that has won just five of its 18 away league games this season. Because they are now ninth in the rankings, six points behind seventh-place Juventus, the Purples will not be participating in European football next season.
However, if Vincenzo Italiano’s team defeats West Ham in the final the following week, they will advance to the group stage of the Europa League for the following season. The matchup versus the Hammers promises to be an exciting one.

Sassuolo’s winless streak in the league now stands at five games after their 2-2 draw away at Sampdoria. Sassuolo did not duplicate their performance from the previous game and split the points this time. After defeating AS Roma 2-1 at home, Fiorentina has won their past three home games, extending their league unbeaten streak to three games.
Both teams to score looks like a solid selection here today with both teams not looking razor-sharp at the back.
