Sassuolo vs Napoli Match Preview
Napoli travel to Reggio nell’Emilia for their Matchday 27 clash on Sunday afternoon, just days after bagging a convincing Europa League win over Salzburg (3-0) as Milik and Fabian Ruiz found the net. They now hope to build on such consistency and snatch the points despite taking on Juventus at the top of the table now feeling like a longshot.
Partenopei have seen a disappointing 1-2 loss to Juventus last week and now sit 16 points behind the rivals. However, we’ve seen them earn three wins in four games, as they beat Zurich (2-0) and Parma (0-4) beforehand, and Carlo Ancelotti will want his men very motivated once again.
Sassuolo have proven themselves a tough nut to crack and we’ve seen an exciting outfit to watch over the past couple of weeks, despite the obvious struggles for points – which see them sitting in the mid-table with 31 points to their name after 26 Serie A outings.
Neroverdi have suffered a narrow loss at Milan (1-0) with ten men last week and this was their third loss in four outings, beaten by Juventus (0-3) and Empoli (3-0) beforehand and only holding SPAL to a 1-1 draw along the way. They will now need more and the crowd at MAPEI Stadium will be well aware of a need to rediscover their form in the final third.
We do feel Sassuolo will prove themselves a very tough nut to crack on Sunday, though, and we’re now sticking our necks out for another such display from Roberto De Zerbi’s men – as we go for a Double Chance – Home win or Draw at 11/8 with William Hill.
We feel they’ll have to cope up front to do so and with that in mind, we’re now also going for goals at MAPEI Stadium. We’ll back a Yes on Both teams to score at 3/4 with Paddy Power, which feels like a solid approach to the fixture by itself as we head into an exciting clash in the making.
