Sassuolo – Napoli Prediction and Preview

  • With five defeats from their last six matches (D1) and just one victory across all competitions since the start of December (D2, L10), Sassuolo have sacked Alessio Dionisi and are now in the Serie A relegation zone on goal difference ahead of the visit of Napoli. The Neroverdi have triumphed at home only once in their last nine league encounters (D3, L5), a record they need to improve if they want to realise a 12th successive season in Italy’s top tier.
  • Tightening up the defence will be a priority for caretaker boss Emiliano Bigica, as Sassuolo, have leaked three goals in both of their last two games – including a 94th-minute winner against Empoli on Saturday – and conceded 11 in their last four. All of this will be music to the ears of Napoli, who have been prolific against Sassuolo recently with 19 goals in the last six H2Hs, contributing to four successive victories heading into this fixture!
  • A fifth win in a row would be particularly welcome for the Partenopei, who are without a victory on the road since late November (D2, L5) and have drawn their last three games 1-1 in all competitions. However, another stalemate could well be on the cards for Napoli, who have shared the points in five of their last seven (W2) trips north to play Sassuolo!
  • Francesco Calzona became Napoli’s fourth manager since June last year when he was appointed last week, and it looked like he would lead them to victory in his first league outing in charge on Sunday before a 96th-minute equaliser from Cagliari, one of two teams level on points with Sassuolo. That draw means that Napoli begin this game firmly in mid-table, with Calzona targeting his first win at the helm to push them back into the hunt for a European place.
  • Players to watchAndrea Pinamonti’s last four goals have all come at home, with the Sassuolo striker opening the scoring for his side in seven matches this season. Victor Osimhen, meanwhile, is targeting a third successive scoring appearance and has lost only three times (W45, D8) when he has scored across his Napoli career.
  • Hot stat: There has been a first-half goal in just one of Napoli’s last seven games!
