|With each team winning three of their first five league matches this season, it is two squads with contrasting game plans that will clash here.|
|The last round saw Spal concede two goals or more for just the second time in ten SA matches. Otherwise, ‘tight and close’ has been a recent trademark for the club that ended last season by drawing 1-1 or 0-0 in six of their last eleven matches.|
|Spal have also seen a scoreline to nil either way in each of their six matches (in all competitions; W4, L2) this season. A 1-0 scoreline (W3, L1) has been produced in four of them.|
|Where Spal have tightened up to win their points, Sassuolo have let it flow. The team has scored the most goals so far in SA (12 goals), with matches involving them producing a whopping average of exactly four goals per match so far.|
|A marked improvement on the 2017/18 campaign is projected for Sassuolo, given that they they scored just 29 goals over the entire season. Curiously, however, their average of conceded goals has shown only a little fluctuation: 1.6 on average this season vs 1.55 last season.|
|Players to watch: Young forward Andrea Petagna has three goals from six starts this season, and fired home a double in Spal’s last home match, while Kevin Prince-Boateng has scored three goals in his last four matches for Sassuolo.|
|Stat attack: 12 of Spal’s last 17 matches have produced under 2.5 goals.|
|Sassuolo have scored in seven straight away matches, but have kept a clean sheet just twice in their last 20 away games.|
|Both teams are averaging 2.8 yellow cards this season, and at least two Spal players have seen yellow in every league match so far.|
