Crvena Zvezda started the season with Champions League qualifying matches but managed to pass only one round, beating Valletta, 2-1, 2-1. The following matchup with Ludogorets ended with 2-2 draws in both legs and the winner was decided in extra time. The visiting side played five matches in Serbian top league, gaining 13 points and having the lead in the table. Despite elimination from the Champions League, the team haven’t lost a single match this season. Crvena Zvezda are on 12-match undefeated run since the beginning of May, taking nine wins and three draws.
Sassuolo are the team from mid-table of Serie a while Crvena Zvezda are the leaders of Serbian football. However, in modern football sixth team if top division is stronger than champions of mediocre league. This why we should pick the host of the favorites in the first leg.
Prediction for the match: Sassuolo to win.
