Sassuolo vs Napoli Match Preview
One of the biggest stories of the Serie A season so far has been the downward spiral that Napoli are currently on. They came into the season as potential title challengers to Juventus, and they come here on the back of eight games without a win. They are outside of the European places and if things go badly for them this weekend, they could find themselves in the bottom half of the table over Christmas.
Sassuolo found themselves in a spot of trouble not too long ago but since then they have made themselves very difficult to beat and they are now moving up the table. They come here on the back of four games unbeaten, three draws and a win last time against Brescia. Those draws all came against good teams it is worth pointing out, Juventus, Cagliari and AC Milan, so their form has been very impressive recently.
With the troubles that Napoli are currently having, it is impossible to back them at any price, but especially not at odds on away from home. Sassuolo are a massive price here considering how they have been playing recently and they are the pick for us in this one. If they are to have success here, this will have to be a tight game with few scoring chances, so our second bet on the game is for there to be under 2.5 goals in it.
