TOR vs SAS Dream11 Tips for Torino vs Sassuolo Serie A Fixtures 17 March


TOR vs SAS Dream11: Sassuolo travels to Turin to take on Torino in the Serie A. Torino are currently in the relegation zone and are 2 points off of safety. The good news is that they have 2 games in hand over their counter-parts but have lost their last 2 games in Serie A. Sassuolo were having a great season and were challenging for the Europa League spots but have slipped up since then. They find themselves in 8th place and are coming off of the back of a 3-2 win over Verona after a disappointing 2-0 loss to Udinese and will look for some stability in this game.

Date: 17th March, Wednesday
Kick-Off: 7:30 pm (IST)
Venue: Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino

Serie A Table: Sassuolo is 8th in the table with Torino in 18th place.

Fantasy Football Tips

Captain Options

Francesco Caputo – Caputo has been great for Sassuolo this season with 11 goals and 4 assists in 18 starts in Serie A. He has 4 goals and an assist in his last 5 starts for the club and has a shot conversion rate of 65%. Caputo has a goal-contribution every 102 minutes as well.

Andrea Belotti – The forward has been having a bit of a dry-spell at the moment but is still on 11 goals and 5 assists this season. He also has created 31 chances this season and succeeded in 34 of his attempted dribbles. The forward is good with both feet and has scored 5 goals with his left and right each.

Differential Pick

Domenico Berardi – With 9 goals and 4 assists, Domenico Berardi has been excellent on the right flank. He has done well creatively and has created 49 goal-scoring chances with a 51% dribble success rate. Berardi has dispatched 26 shots on target so far and has done well to put the ball in the box with 25 accurate crosses. 4 of his goal have come from outside the box and giving him any space around the Torino defensive box will be a huge mistake for the home side. Berardi has a pass accuracy of 80% and will be one of the players to watch out for in this game.

TOR vs SAS Dream 11 Teams

Goalkeeper – Consigli
Defenders – Bremer, Lyanco, Ferrari, Chiriches
Midfielders – Lukic, Rincon, Boga
Forwards – Belotti (VC), Berardi, Caputo (C)

Likely Winner

Even though Sassuolo should win the TOR vs SAS Today Match Prediction but it will not be an easy outing. Torino has the quality to upset the odds and will be desperate to leave the relegation zone and put some distance between them and the teams around them. Sassuolo will also try their best to get into the Europa League spots even though it seems to be slipping away, they will want to keep their end of the bargain.
