Sassuolo 2023/24 Season Predictions

This season we predict Sassuolo will finish mid-table and could push for Europa Conference League. They have a strong squad and have strengthened well with new signings Racic, Bajrami, Mulattieri and Andrea Pinamonti. We predict they will comfortably survive but might not have a good enough coach or squad to make Europe.
