Sassuolo scored four goals away to Spezia last weekend and could have easily netted a few more for their troubles, en route to a memorable maiden Serie A win of the new campaign. Francesco Caputo, who had a goal and assist, also saw two strikes disallowed after VAR review as the visitors enjoyed 66% possession with 17 shots over 90 minutes.

The big question for them this season is whether they can sustain those high levels across the whole year – hosting a newly-promoted Crotone side this weekend.

Sassuolo vs Crotone Betting Tips

After convincing defeats by Genoa and Milan in their first two matchdays, it's been a humbling return to Serie A for Crotone.

They've conceded 30 shots in 180 minutes and quite frankly, that statistic needs to change rather quickly as far as they're concerned. Perhaps fortunate to have conceded six in that double-header, defenders like Vladimir Golemic and Lisandro Magallan (on-loan from Ajax) need to step up.

It's still early days so they won't be analysed as harshly until around Christmas time, but now is the best time to earn regular points against tough opposition. These sides haven't got into a groove yet, including Sassuolo, who drew 1-1 with Cagliari on MD1.

They have a solid midfield axis with Pedro Obiang and Manuel Locatelli protecting an ever-improving backline that added Vlad Chiriches last month. I haven't even discussed their multiple attacking players, including a motivated Filip Duricic and ever-dependable captain Domenico Berardi.

Both find themselves taking more responsibility in the final third with Jeremie Boga's absence through injury a notable absence again this weekend.

Sassuolo vs Crotone Correct Score Predictions

Crotone would love to spring a surprise on Saturday's hosts but are rightly underdogs after drawing a blank in their first two league games. Sassuolo lead the H2H (seven wins, three losses, two draws), but lost 4-1 in April 2018 during their most recent meeting. I'm predicting they restore order with a victory here.
