Sunday's early kick-off in Serie A looks set to be a well-matched contest between two sides that have seen plenty of their recent games end all square

Sassuolo and Fiorentina are separated by four places and just two points in the Serie A table.

The pair contest the early kick-off on Sunday at MAPEI Stadium and there could be plenty of value in backing the match to end up all square.

Despite home advantage, Sassuolo are narrow outsiders for the match at 9/5 (2.80) with 888Sport.

Fiorentina are only a shade shorter at 8/5 (2.60) with the same firm but the most appealing selection is the biggest price of the match odds trio. The draw pays 21/10 (3.10) and there's plenty of reason to like this game to finish level.

The hosts have played 14 games in Serie A so far and five of them have ended in draws. Crucially though, four of those have come against teams that currently rank 10th or lower in the table coming into this weekend's round of fixtures.

La Viola have become the division's draw specialists. Stefano Pioli's side have drawn five of their last six league games with all of them ending 1-1 or 0-0. These score lines are available at 5/1 (6.0) and 8/1 (9.0) respectively which is certainly worth considering for those seeking longer prices.

Away from home Fiorentina are yet to pick up a win but four of their seven outings have ended level and this clash could be set to be another close encounter.

While a recent spate of draws in the form book doesn't necessarily indicate a future stalemate, what it does show is that outside the elite sides in Serie A there is often little to choose between two teams.

Lazio sit fifth on 24 points but Torino in sixth and Empoli who occupy 17th are separated by just eight points.

Given how well-matched these teams are, backing the 21/10 (3.10) with 888Sport about another draw in this fixture makes plenty of appeal.
