Napoli v Sassuolo

BETTING & MATCH PREVIEW

On Sunday evening, Napoli host Sassuolo at the San Paolo in Serie A, as the home side look to make up ground on league leaders and champions Juventus at the top of the table. 

Napoli remain second place in the Italian top-flight, but they trail Juventus by six points after the Bianconeri recorded a 3-1 win over the home side in their last league outing. 

The defeat in Turin ended a three-game winning run for Carlo Ancelotti’s team in the Italian top-flight. Napoli’s recent Serie A games have been high scoring, with over 2.5 goals scored in seven of their last eight outings. 

Napoli have a strong recent record at the San Paolo in Serie A, winning seven of their last eight games. The team from Naples have also scored at least two goals in six of their last seven games. 

Sassuolo have enjoyed a good start to their Serie A campaign and currently sit fifth-place in the table, just two points behind the home side. 

The visitors may have enjoyed a decent start to their league campaign, but they suffered a 4-1 home mauling at the hands of AC Milan in their last Serie A outing. The loss ended a two-game mini winning run. 

Sassuolo’s recent Serie A games have been good value for money when it comes to goals, as there have been over 2.5 goals scored in five of their last six Serie A games. 

The visitor’s recent record on their travels in Serie A is a mixed one. However, they have suffered just two defeats in nine outings on the road. 

Team News

Napoli once again look set to be without Vlad Chiriches, Amin Younes and Alex Meret due to injury. The visitors are likely to be without injured duo Alfred Duncan and Federico Peluso. 

Match Prediction

Napoli will be looking to get straight back to winning ways in Serie A. I do believe they will record a win in an entertaining encounter.
