Live in-play betting – 

Struggling Sassuolo host Fiorentina in this game as they try to continue their recent run of good form.

Sassuolo have been impressive recently – they have won 2 and drawn 2 of their last 4 league matches – form that has helped them climb up the table to 14th position.

They currently have 39 points from 34 league games and are 24 points clear of the relegation zone.

They will be looking to win this game in order to push forward in the league as the season comes to a close.

They have won only one of their last 8 home games with 2 recent home draws.

Fiorentina are currently 8th in the league table after an impressive campaign that has seen them collect 55 points from 34 league games.

They have won 4 of their last 10 league games, losing 3 and drawing 3 more.

They are 9 points off 5th placed Atalanta so they have little chance of playing in Europe next season.

Their away form has not been good recently – they have won only 1 of their last 5 away games, and they took just 1 point from their last 2 away games.

Sassuolo (probable): Consigli; Adjapong, Letschert, Acerbi, Peluso; Sensi, Aquilani, Duncan; Berardi, Matri, Ricci

Suspended: None

Fiorentina (probable): Tatarusanu; Sanchez, Rodriguez, Salcedo; Tello, Vecino, Badelj, Milic; Ilicic, Borja Valero; Kalinic
