Sassuolo are one of the most expansive sides in Serie A and this translates into plenty of goals being scored at both ends whenever they play. Their away form has, however, been patchy, but a trip to Venezia could offer them some solace.
The hosts need the win to boost their chances of avoiding the drop but we are backing Sassuolo to secure a win with goals to be scored at both ends.
Prediction: Venezia 1-3 Sassuolo
