Sassuolo - Empoli (Serie A, Italy) 21-02-2016. Corners preview

21/02/2016

Sassuolo to win on corners

Sassuolo will face Empoli in 26th game week of Seria A. These teams are neighborhood in tournament table – Sassuolo takes 8th place and their encounters are on 9th place. Despite the championship will last for a long time yet teams are not afraid of flying out. On the other hand, it will be surprise if they play in Eurocups. Teams supervised 5 games synchronously: three times drew and two times were defeated. Fans wait for wins and only one team will bring them happiness.
 Sassuolo tied in last two games: firstly was home match with Palermo and the next was away match with Chievo. Sassuolo players showed combinational football and controlled the ball more than their opponents in both matches. The game style of the team includes good attacking football and lots of distant shots. Attacking and defensive game “on the second floor” is big advantage of Sassuolo players. Berardi often sends ball to penalty area and Sansone has good dribbling. They are going to play in wings.

Empoli players were unexpectedly defeated by outsider of the league Frosinone in home match (1-2). Empoli will play away with neighborhood in tournament table in bad mood. Mário Rui is main left defender and he won’t play in upcoming game because of disqualification. Empoli tries to play with short passes and to create chances controlling the ball. Headers isn’t advantage of the team and strong opponent can make use of it.

Let’s look at upcoming match according to bets on corners. Bookies set Sassuolo as favorite on corners. The odds on win is 1.62, the odds on draw is 6.6 and the odds on guests’ win is 3.05 (at 1xBet). In my opinion bet on Sassuolo win will be covered and even -1.5 handicap looks attractive (for odds 1,95).

Sassuolo was defeated on corners two times in previous 10 matches. And the team got wins even with such top teams as Napoli and Roma. Sassuolo won on corners in 8 of 12 matches at home (in last 6 matches they won 5 times). The exception is game against Bologna in which Sassuolo lost. The side took more than 7 corners during 6 last home games.

Empoli’s stats on corners in away games are depressing: 3 wins and 10 defeats. They won only once in last 10 matches. The team delivers 3.85 corners on average away with negative average difference of 2 corners.

To conclude both teams will try to win in upcoming match to make fans happy. Home side knows about their powerful skill of heading the ball and will try to use it. Corners are great way to realize chances. Thus I think that bet on Sassuolo is reasonable. For those who like risk I offer to bet on hosts with minus handicap.
