Sassuolo vs Napoli Team News

Sassuolo have been on a roll this season and seem hell-bent on securing a respectable league position come the end of the season. When December’s fixture schedule rolled in, the media were quick to write off this cluster of players, claiming they would come crashing.

Their assumptions were justified considering that the Green and Whites had difficult games against the likes of Juventus, Cagliari and AC Milan on the horizon. They had a difficult month ahead of them, many thought.

However, De Zerbi’s men have come through each of those games unscathed, refusing to admit defeat in any of them. A 2-2 draw against Cagliari followed another impressive game against reigning champions Juventus which ended with the same score-line.

I Nerovedi then held AC Milan to a goalless draw, before seeing off Brescia with relative ease on the last match-day. They put two unanswered goals past sorry Brescia to finally post all three points on the board.

Contrary to popular opinion, Sassuolo have gone through the month of December unscathed, even maintaining an unbeaten record in the process. This team have simply been on fire!

Napoli, on the other hand, stretched their winless streak in the league to eight consecutive games following a shocking 1-2 loss to Parma on Gennaro Gattuso’s debut. Sadly, for the supporters, it was a case of new coach, same old story.

The home side have been clinical in front of goal this season, much to the credit of the club’s in-form attacking players. With a win-draw-loss record of 5-4-7 in the Serie A, it is fair to say that Sassuolo have been really impressive so far.

At the MAPEI Stadium, they have managed three wins, one draw and four losses, scoring 2.25 goals per match while allowing two goals down the other end of the pitch.

Meanwhile, the visitors have been mediocre on the road with just two wins, four draws and two defeats on their travels, averaging 1.88 goals per game while conceding 1.68. Their last away fixture saw them share the spoils with Udinese.

Sassuolo vs Napoli Predictions

The home side have been scoring for fun at this venue so far this season. They certainly know how to entertain their fans when it comes to banging in the goals. However, it is their defense that has come in for scrutiny.

I Nerovedi are allowing too many goals down the end of the pitch as their goalkeeper has struggled to keep shut-outs. As such, count on both teams to find the back of the net with the hosts edging out Napoli at the end of the ninety minutes.
