Sassuolo play very good this season and after 28 Rounds they are standing at the 7th position. Their main goal before the season started was to avoid relegation, but now they even have a chance to reach the place which leads in the qualifications for the UEFA Europa League. In the previous round they beat AC Milan 2-0 and it was their 3rd won in a row, while in the last 5 games they are unbeaten.
