Sassuolo vs Napoli
Italy – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 10 March 2019
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK
Venue: MAPEI Stadium – Cittadel Tricolore, Reggio nell’Emilia
Sassuolo have seen a narrow loss at Milan last week despite a strong challenge and an exciting contest, now hosting Napoli looking to end a five-game winless streak as they sit in the mid-table with 31 points to their name after 26 outings in Serie A.
Napoli have, on the other hand, earned a 3-0 win over Salzburg and returned to the winning ways after a disappointing 1-2 loss to Juventus – bagging their third win in four outings across competitions. Carlo Ancelotti will now want to build on such high-scoring displays and bag the points at MAPEI Stadium, despite falling behind in a race to catch up with Juventus at the top of the table.
Partenopei have rediscovered their fine form on the road too and outclassed Zurich and Parma in last two trips, which should have them just as motivated to impress in Reggio nell’Emilia. Sassuolo have struggled to keep it together at the back at this ground and this should be very much a boost for the rivals’ intentions to outgun them.
Sassuolo vs Napoli: Head-to-head
Napoli have bagged three wins and two draws in the sides’ last five head-to-head clashes.
Sassuolo have denied them in the last two occasions at this ground, though, with two exciting draws on the records.
Partenopei have beaten the rivals twice in front of the home fans this term already.
Sassuolo vs Napoli: Prediction
We will now back Napoli to snatch all three points and we’ll go for an Away win at 1.57, which feels like buying money for old rope and has seen many big hitters lumping already – despite a strong challenge we expect to see at MAPEI Stadium.
We do feel we’re in for goals, though, and with that in mind – we’re backing a high-scoring contest and Over 2.5 goals FT at 1.72. We have seen three or more goals in four of the Napoli’s last six outings across competitions and this feels like further evidence for such a bet here!
