Our prediction for this Coppa Italia match:
Mapei Stadium – Citta del Tricolore will host the Coppa Italia clash between Sassuolo and SPAL. The Neroverdi suffered a 3-1 loss to Juventus in their last Serie A game, but their display in the defeat to Andrea Pirlo’s troops was anything but poor. Since Sassuolo have slim chances of winning Scudetto, we are positive that they will give 100% to go all the way in the Italian Cup. Boga is pushing for a start, while Berardi, Ricci, and Romagna remain in the recovery room.
SPAL, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from a 3-2 loss to Brescia, with the team beating Frosinone on the road in their last Serie B fixture. Pasquale Marino’s troops are eager to claim a major scalp in the Coppa Italia last 16, but seeing that Sassuolo are a real force to be reckoned with at home, the underdogs are likely to return to Ferrara empty-handed.
