In a routine mid-table Serie A clash, Sassuolo host Udinese at the Stadio Città del Tricolore on Saturday.

Both teams have secured their top-flight status for the upcoming season and are also ruled out of the race for European spots, so there's not much to play for either side here.

This might possibly explain why the home side have suddenly slumped, suffering three losses on the spin. The 6-1 thumping at the hands of Napoli last week was their worst defeat of the ongoing campaign.

Udinese fought bravely against reigning champions Inter Milan but fell to a 2-1 loss last time around. They trail the hosts by three points and a place in the league standings.

Sassuolo vs Udinese Prediction

Both teams are going through a rough patch at the moment and will likely be happy with a draw. While I Neroverdi have scored an impressive 60 goals this term, they have let in 61 as well.

I Friulani have a solid record against the hosts. Nonetheless, a low-scoring draw seems to be the likely outcome of this game.

Prediction: Sassuolo 1-1 Udinese
