The hosts are 15th in Serie A, and they have already lost six of their 10 outings to date. The visitors aren't doing too much better themselves, as although they are two points better off, they have played a game more.
It's the goal stats that we are interested in tonight though, and they are heavily pointing towards a high-scoring affair.
Sassuolo have scored 18 and conceded 20 so far this term, which means that their games are averaging 3.8 goals each time - the second highest in the division. Only two of their 10 have had less than three goals, and both of those were away.
Bologna have a lower average, but it's still at the 2.91 mark, and seven of their 11 have seen this selection land - including their five most recent outings.
The odds on offer on this game baffle me slightly, as I was expecting Sociedad to be around the 1/2 mark, but they are available at 4/5.
Imanol Alguacil's side are third in La Liga, with seven wins from 12 matches this season. They have been beaten twice at home, but they have also won three times, and one of those victories came against Atletico Madrid.
Leganes are nowhere near that level, in fact, they are bottom of the league. They have taken just five points from a possible 36, and away from home it's four defeats and just a single draw.
The board have reacted by appointing Javier Aguirre as their new number one, but I can't see him turning things around that quickly - if at all.
The Hornets are the only team in the top five divisions who are yet to record a league win this season, but hopefully that won't be the case by the end of the night.
They have certainly improved since the re-appointment of Quique Sánchez Flores, and they have been unlucky not to pick up three points yet.
Norwich started their campaign well, but since their 3-2 victory over Man City, they have played six, lost five and drawn one - and it's worth remembering that they have lost their previous three matches, prior to that City game.
Daniel Farke's men aren't looking up to Premier League level, and even Teemu Pukki has stopped scoring goals.
