Napoli vs Sassuolo
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 1 November 2020
Kick-Off at 17.00 UK
Venue: San Paolo Stadium, Naples.
Napoli beat Real Sociedad (0-1) on Thursday and earned their third win in four outings across competitions, hosting Sassuolo in a good mood despite a disappointing start of their Europa League campaign – when AZ snatched a 0-1 win at San Paolo Stadium and interrupted the winning streak once again.
Partenopei now sit just two points behind top of the table and they will be looking to challenge AC Milan as soon as Sunday. However, the same can be said for Sassuolo who only sit behind Napoli for their goal difference. We thus hope for a great challenge and another great game of football in Naples, with the visitors enjoying just as good a form of recent.
Indeed, Sassuolo scored an amazing total of 15 goals in four games since late September, beating Spezia (1-4), Crotone (4-1), and Bologna (3-4) before seeing the streak ended by Torino (3-3).
De Zerbi’s men enjoyed an attacking approach and we expect the same now, looking for an upset despite coming off as heavy underdogs if you ask the bookies. Still, they’re bound to make it tough for Napoli and do their bit in making it an exciting game.
Napoli vs Sassuolo Head-to-head
Sassuolo earned just one win in 15 head-to-head clashes since 2013.
Napoli bagged four wins and a draw in their last five matchups, including a 2-0 win here in late July.
We’ve seen two or fewer goals in five of the last six occasions between the sides.
Napoli vs Sassuolo Prediction
We will back Napoli to build on such records but we expect a more exciting head-to-head clash this time around, where Sassuolo come motivated to show off their fine form in the goalscoring department. We will thus go for a Home win and a YES on Both teams to score – which comes at 2.50.
Both sides have seen their share of thrillers and with that in mind, it’s hard to make a case for anything but a high-scoring contest at San Paolo. We’ll thus also back Over 3.5 Goals FT at 1.90 and hope to see in-form attacking lines deliver on Sunday as well.
