Looking to avoid a fourth defeat on the spin in Serie A, Sassuolo take on Salernitana at the Mapei Stadium-Città del Tricolore Stadium on Sunday.

The visitors are yet to taste victory in the Italian top flight and will head into the game seeking to end this poor record.

Sassuolo were left empty handed once again as they fell to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Atalanta last Tuesday.

It was the third defeat on the bounce for Alessio Dionisi’s side, who were beaten by AS Roma and Torino in their two outings leading up to the defeat.

They have now picked up one point since their opening-day 3-2 win over Hellas Verona. This poor run of results sees Sassuolo occupy 14th place in the Italian Serie A table.

Meanwhile, Salernitana are currently rooted to the bottom of the log after five rounds of matches.

The newly-promoted side are yet to taste victory in the top-flight, managing just one point so far.

Fabrizio Castori’s men head into the game off the back of a 2-2 draw against Hellas Verona and will look to build on the positives from that performance.


Sassuolo vs Salernitana Head-To-Head

With three wins from their five previous encounters, Sassuolo head into the game as the superior side in the history of this fixture. Salernitana have picked up one win, while the spoils have been shared once.
