This game will definitely be one for the neutral here. Luzern have won 3 of 4 pre-season games. They won their opening fixture in the Swiss Super League. Sassuolo have won their only summer friendly. They come into this season off the back of 4 straight Serie A wins last season. So both sides have the capability to win this game.

Luzern have had a good tidy up of their squad in July. With 8 new players coming in and 5 moving away. They have strengthened in every area of the pitch so far. They have recruited 2 GK’s, 1 defender, 2 midfielders and 3 new strikers.

Sassuolo have also signed 8 new players. We will see this season if any of the new signings can replicate the outgoing Sime Vrsaljko and Matteo Politano’s form last season. Both played a big role in Sassuolo getting in to Europe. This feat was recognised by the bigger boys in Italy and Spain. Vrsaljko has transferred to Atletico Madrid and forward Politano has signed for divisional rivals AS Roma.

A strong pre-season for Luzern has put them in good stead going forward this season. Played 4, won 3 and lost 1. They will undoubtedly look for the positives from all 4 games. This will be a tough side to beat on home soil after finishing 3rd in the Super League. Only Basel and Young Boys were able to finish above them after a very strong season.

On the other hand, Sassuolo are tough nut to crack. 4 straight wins in Serie A at the back end of last season shows how strong they can be. Wins over Inter Milan (3-1) and Torino away (3-1) in the final stages contributed toward their 6th place finish. Only the Italian “big dogs” were above them in the end. Juventus, Napoli, Roma, Inter & Fiorentina. With focus on this season, 1 pre-season drubbing (8-0) of Castelvetro will make confidence sky high. So both teams will be very confident in this tie.

Luzern have their star striker available for this clash. In the last 2 seasons, Marco Schneuwly has scored 33 goals in 71 games. At 31, he is an experienced footballer and knows where the net is. Last season’s top scorer Domenico Berardi will be available for Sassuolo. He has scored 49 goals in 127 games for Sassuolo. However, as mentioned, 2 of Sassuolo’s key players have departed for Champions League football in 2016/17. The remainder of the squad are still together. Put that with the new arrivals, a good team, work ethic and style – this team could well go on reach the group stages of this competition.

In their last 5 home games, Luzern have scored 9 and conceded 6. Both teams scored in 4 of those 5 games at the swissporarena. In Sassuolo’s last 5 away games they scored 8 and conceded 6. Both teams scoring 3 of those 5 matches.

Our free prediction for this match is a 2-2 draw at 14/1 with bet365. Both sides are very able to score goals and both can concede – Luzern at home and Sassuolo when playing away. Keeping this in mind, we are also going for Both Teams To Score at 5/6 with bet365.

No record of these two sides meeting before this tie.

In their last 5 home games, Luzern have scored 9 and conceded 6. Both teams scored in 4 of those 5 games at the swissporarena. In Sassuolo's last 5 away games they scored 8 and conceded 6. Both teams scoring 3 of those 5 matches.
