Separated by only two points in the standings table and aiming for a place in the classification zone for international competitions, Sassuolo and Torino will face this Saturday, December 22, in a commitment that is part of the schedule of the seventeenth round of the Italian Championship, the antepenultimate of the first round of the 2018/2019 season. The game will be played at Mapei Stadium – Città del Tricolore in Reggio Emilia, starting at 12h (Brasília time).
Sassuolo have their best season since they ascended to the elite division of the Italian League. He has 24 points (six wins, six draws and four losses) and ranks eighth on the leaderboard. The score, however, is the same as that of Atalanta, sixth-placed, who closes the block of teams that would have the right to compete in international tournaments in the 2019/2020 season through Serie A.This has made the fans can dream of achieving this unprecedented goal. Even because the team has achieved consistent performance that has extended even to the Italian Cup, where it reached the last 16 and will face Napoli in the attempt to survive.In their dominions, the Sassuolo, although does not present a spectacular performance, managed to score in seven of the eight disputed matches. It was three wins and four draws. He scored 16 goals and suffered 14.For Saturday’s meeting, however, coach Roberto de Zerbi will have to manage some casualties. A certain is the midfielder Filip Djuric (ten games in the 2018/2019 Italian 2018/2019 season, one goal). He is suspended.The others are likely. They are in the care of the medical department and should not be released to defend defenders Claud Adjapong (three games, one goal) and Leonardo Sernicola (still without performances in the current season); and midfielders Kevin-Prince Boateng (11 games, four goals) and Jeremie Boga (six games, no goal).
Much more traditional and superior economic resources, Torino tries to return to international tournaments. In the last two seasons, he flirted with that possibility, but lost his breath in the end. This year has shown a bit more consistency.With 22 points (five wins, seven draws and four losses), he is in eleventh place. It came to occupy a position in the G6, but did not resist two classics in a row. In the first, he tied with Milan, 0-0, in Milan. In the second, at home, was beaten by Juventus 1-0.To seek recovery, coach Walter Mazzari may not be able to rely on his starter. Salvatore Sirigu (16 games in the 2018/2019 season of the Italian Championship) was injured in the first half of the Derby of Turin. The hip injury should also keep him out of Saturday’s match. If that is confirmed, the Uruguayan Salvador Ichazo, who has entered his place in the classic, should be among the starters.Torino remains undefeated as a visitor. Of the eight games played away from their dominions, they won two and drew six. The 12 accumulated points make it to have the fourth best performance in this question among the 20 teams that compete for Series A.
