A draw will be a great result for the home side

With 18 points from 14 matches, Sassuolo are comfortably at 12th position which is eight points less than last season. However, the Neroverdi suffered three consecutive defeats starting from the third round. And despite recovering in the next few rounds, still, Sassuolo lost a lot of points in matches where they opened the scoring. For example, the Green-Blacks led against Inter Genoa Empoli and Udinese.

However, coach Alessio Dionisi’s team drew with Genoa and lost all other three matches. Accordingly, Dionisi must find a way to keep their lead. Nevertheless, against a side like Napoli, Dionisi will hope to keep his goal clean at all costs. Something that Sassuolo were able to do in just one of their last five home games.

Napoli to strengthen their lead at the top

A very convincing 4-0 win over Lazio in the last round saw Napoli open a three-point gap over second-placed AC Milan. By doing so, the Azzurri bounced back from their defeat last week by Inter. Certainly, Spaletti’s team look determined to keep their lead for the Scudetto race. And they did that in style against a fine Lazio side. 

In round 13, Napoli lost their first match of the season to Inter who have now joined the title race. Surely Spaletti knows his team can’t lift their feet off the pedal at this stage if the season. Otherwise, Inter and Milan will catch them since they are just three and four points ahead of the duo. Moreover, Napoli are having their best season in three years and fancy their chances of a first Scudetto since 1990. 

Sassuolo vs Napoli Prediction 

The bookies expect a tough match for Napoli in Reggio Emilia as they are paying a generous 1.86 for an away win. Indeed the last two h2h results might be the reason for that high odds as Napoli lost and drew the two games.

Furthermore, Napoli won just once in their last five travels to the Mapei Stadium. As is the case in most matches in Serie A, both Sassuolo’s and Napoli’s recent matches saw many goals. To be exact, Sassuolo’s last three matches saw four goals or more.

Similarly, Napoli’s last two matches saw the same number of goals. In addition, there is a 64% chance over 2.5 goals to be scored according to both teams’ statistics. As a result, we will back over 2.5 considering all these facts and stats.

And for our second prediction,  we will choose a combo bet from Vbet combining a double chance and under 4.5 goals in the match.
