Alessio Dionisi has an extra card against Torino

Sassuolo will host Torino on Saturday night in the match valid for the seventh day of the championship. The neroverdi are struggling with several injuries: “It’s a shame not to have all the players, I think it’s a problem for all teams. Then you play close matches, it fits us not to have some available. Unfortunately we have so many defections in the forwards but I have a choice and that means the players are there,” Dionisi said in the press conference.

However, the Sassuolo coach will be able to count on Obiang: “Pedro is available from the first league game, it is normal that it would be useful to put minutes in his legs, to date he has not been able to because he has not been considered in the choices but he is an important player. With Udinese, he came to the bench with a setback, he had given guarantees anyway. This week he has recovered and is 100 percent.”

“It will be a difficult match because Torino had a very positive championship last year, we played it coming in on equal points, we both did well. Torino restarted from that, the insertions I think were very up to the mark, they put in strong players and the results speak for themselves. Then there’s us. We know that last year was difficult, Torino’s idea of play can put us in trouble but we work to get a positive result.”

The team has undergone several changes from last year, and the market has deprived Dionisi of players of the caliber of Raspadori and Scamacca: “It’s a different Sassuolo. I have an idea of what we can become, it’s normal that we all have to be, results give self-esteem and awareness, we are an inexperienced team in some effects, we can emulate and improve what we did last year, we are not the ones who finished last championship, we can become better, it takes work, time and little talk, few negative attitudes.”
