A relatively opportunistic win against Verona last week sees Roberto De Zerbi‘s side on 18 points from their first eight games.
Undoubtedly, Sassuolo’s ever-consistent Azzurri striker Domenico Berardi will be a priority for the opposition defense to keep tightly shackled.
Berardi is the only Serie A player to have registered more than 10 goals and assists in the calendar year, with only three other players in the top five European leagues managing to achieve this impressive feat so far in 2020 – Thomas Muller, Bruno Fernandes, and Lionel Messi.
