In the rescheduled match of the 21st round of Serie A, Sassuolo awaits Napoli in an upcoming clash. Both teams are struggling this season and most likely will consider this Serie A campaign as a failure at the end of the season. Sassuolo is currently at 18the place, sharing 20 points with Verona and Cagliari. The main goal of the team is to avoid relegation, which means clinging on to every point possible. The task does not seem to be impossible given that the density at the bottom of the table is quite high with 14th-placed Lecce is only 4 points away. Current Serie A champion is currently placed 9th, with grim chances of getting into the top-6. The gap until the 6th place is only 4 points, but Roma is currently on the run, making the Neapolitan task way harder, while dreams of Champions League for the next season are already forgotten. In the first-round match, Napoli got a confident win, 2-0, and will be happy to repeat the result, given the dire need of points.

Sassuolo vs. Napoli Preview 

Sassuolo Preview

Sassuolo forgot the taste of winnings since the beginning of January - the team lost 5 matches and had one draw. Moreover, Sassuolo has obvious problems with defensive lines, coupled with frequent mistakes of the main goalkeeper, Andrea Consigli. The team is one worst in the league in terms of conceded goals (48 goals in 25 matches), conceding 6 goals in two last matches. At the same time, Sassuolo does not look hopeless in the attack even in matches where they are obvious outsiders. Domenico Berardi and his teammates had their chances in the matches with Juventus (3-0) and Atlanta (3-0), the question was the realisation of them.

Napoli Preview

Napoli continues its horrible season with changing the second manager throughout the season. Walter Mazzari’s departure was imminent but no one expected it to be 2 days before UEFA Champions League with Barcelona (1-1) It is hard to say what changes can we expect from Francesco Calzona, his first two matches ended with a draw 1-1. Coming in the middle of the season is always a hard task for a manager, and here Calzona can only hope on the good form of Victor Osimhen (scored 2 goals in 2 matches) and that his small injury sustained in the match with Cagliari will not be serious.

Betting Tips for Sassuolo vs. Napoli

Napoli to Win

Despite all the problems that Napoli has this season, the class of the team is way higher than Sassuolo. In the last match, Napoli looked pretty decent, conceding only in the 90+6 minute. The team is slowly regaining its strength and while there are no talks about drastic changes, it seems that Napoli is currently in the mood to secure wins against such rivals as Sassuolo. Unibet gives 1.84 for this Sassuolo vs. Napoli prediction.

Both Teams to Score

As it was said, Sassuolo suffers from the mistakes in the defensive lines, while Napoli also can’t be proud of its defenders, quite often losing concentration in the end of the matches. Given that such attacking footballers as Domenico Berardi, Andrea Pinamonti, Khvicha Kvaratskhelia will be on the pitch, the teams have all the chances to see goals from both sides. Sassuolo vs. Napoli odds for this outcome, as defined by Unibet, are 1.67.

First to Score - Napoli

Sassuolo conceded first in the 5 last matches out of 7, which indicates the hardships the team usually faces at the beginning of the matches.

It is likely to expect that Napoli will try to secure an advantage from the very beginning of the match. For this Sassuolo vs. Napoli tip, Unibet gives 1.61.
