Napoli vs Sassuolo Prediction and Betting Preview, 25 Jul 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 2-0
Lying side-by-side on the standings, Napoli and Sassuolo have been the two sides gunning for seventh place for quite some time now. However, with only three games left to play, it seems the fate of the final Europa League slot is already sealed.
Match status: 2019-20 Serie A - Matchweek 36
Kick-off:
Venue: Stadio San Paolo (Naples)
Napoli currently occupy that spot with 56 points from 35 games, with Sassuolo trailing them by a whopping eight points in eighth. It will take a miracle-of-sorts for the Neroverdi to overturn this mighty lead before the season’s curtains draw close.

As things stand, Gli Azzurri will be heading into the Europe League group phases, leaving Sassuolo ruing their missed opportunity to have made the cut for continental qualification. Gattuso’s men need only two points from their remaining three fixtures to guarantee a top-seven league finish.

With these two sides going head-to-head this weekend, Napoli will set their sights on snatching all three points from under the noses of the Black and Greens – a feat that will ultimately secure their place in next season’s edition of the Europa League.

Napoli vs Sassuolo Team News

Having finished right behind defending champions Juventus last season, Napoli have failed to hit their high marks this time around. A side deemed title challengers prior to the campaign, it is a little worrying seeing this strong side settle for a place outside of the top-four.

However, this is the reality of things and the Parthenopeans must have already accepted their fate. On the road to the Stadio Ennio Tardini, Napoli were seeking maximum points to end Sassuolo’s faint hopes of usurping them into the final European spot.

Parma shocked the whole footballing world with their impressive performances on the night, grabbing two important goals to put Gennaro Gattuso’s men to the sword. The visitors managed to nick a goal via a well-taken Insigne penalty, one that wasn’t enough for them to escape defeat.

Sassuolo, on the other hand, must have already given up hopes of breaching top-seven before the end of the season. They are some way off Napoli and have a difficult run of fixture over the coming weeks. Pitted against AC Milan last time out, the Neroverdi were expected to struggle.

Failing to disappoint the bookmakers, Sassuolo fell to a narrow defeat at the hands of their high-flying opposition. Taunting the Black and Greens’ defense, Ibrahimovic grabbed a brace to extend Milan’s unbeaten run in the league to nine on the trot.

For this fixture, Napoli’s home advantage is likely to play a crucial role in deciding the outcome of the game. They have a 100% unbeaten record over Sassulo on this ground over the past two decades. Also, they had toppled the Neroverdi in the reverse fixture, remaining unbeaten against them in their last five games.

However, it worth noting that Napoli have been lackluster in recent games, with no extra drive to go all out for victory. Since their Coppa Italia exit and failed CL qualification charge, the morale within the dressing room seems to have dropped a notch.

Meanwhile, Sassuolo are not faring any better in the league. With their European dreams already squashed, they have little or nothing to play for here. When kickoff arrives, De Zerbi’s men will likely be playing for pride alone.

Injured or Suspended Players

Napoli: Fernando Llorente, David Ospina, Amin Younes, Faouzi Ghoulam, Leandrinho and Adam Ounas.

Sassuolo: Pedro Obiang, Gregoire Defrel, Vlad Chiriches, Filippo Romagna, Enrico Brignola and Jens Odgaard.

Napoli vs Sassuolo Predictions

From the look of things, these two sides are struggling to find motivation as the Serie A enters its final stretches. Napoli, for one, have approached recent games lackadaisically, failing to hit top gear even against the weakest of oppositions.

However, knowing fully well that Barcelona awaits them in the Champions League Round-of-16, they will be looking to end their league campaign on a high, to send a statement to the Blaugrana ahead of their European fixture. As such, count on Napoli to deliver the three points here.
