Napoli vs. Sassuolo Tips, Preview and Predictions

Stadium Grey Logo

If it wasn’t already confirmed, Napoli’s scudetto challenge slipped away at the weekend when the Partenopei threw away a two-goal lead at Empoli. Now Napoli must make do with consolidating their top four position. A win at home against Sassuolo would help with that.

Last time: Napoli conceded two late goals when these two sides met earlier in the season and had to make do with a draw and just the one point.

Napoli vs. Sassuolo Predictions and Preview

It looked something of a long shot anyway, but Lorenzo Insigne will now definitely not be leaving Napoli with a scudetto won after he was unable to inspire his side to victory away at Empoli last weekend. He did score the second to put Napoli firmly in the driving seat but three calamitous mistakes in the final minutes of the game handed the home side the three points.

Now Luciano Spalletti must somehow lift his players for this one to ensure that the campaign isn’t completely thrown away and Champions League football will be played at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona next season.

There are no such worries at Sassuolo, where the Reggio Emilia club are set to finish comfortably in mid-table once again. Recent results have reflected that lack of urgency and the home side may well benefit this Saturday.

Napoli vs. Sassuolo full time result odds

Napoli have now failed to win in their last three games and are in danger of allowing the likes of Roma and Lazio to believe that a top four finish is actually possible. That is why it is important for all three points to be won here. That should be perfectly possible and the home win is priced at 4/9. That’s not particularly attractive but it is the best option.

Napoli vs. Sassuolo both teams to score odds

Sassuolo have scored more goals than most of the clubs immediately around them in the middle of the Serie A table but they have also conceded a fair few too. That’s good news for Napoli, who will need to get a morale-boosting victory on Saturday ahead of the remaining games of the season. They might be able to keep the visitors out here though – and both teams not to score can be found at 5/4.

Napoli vs. Sassuolo correct score odds

Only Lazio and Inter have scored more goals than Napoli this season – and even when the results have gone south in recent weeks, this team has still been able to find the net on a regular basis. This could be the game when Napoli shake off whatever has been troubling them recently and a thumping 3-0 home win is offered at 11/1.

Napoli vs. Sassuolo first goalscorer odds

If we are disregarding any Sassuolo player from scoring at all on Saturday there is still a good choice between the Napoli players for the first goalscorer. Victor Osimhen and Dries Mertens are well fancied but Lorenzo Insigne should always be considered and he can be found at around 15/4 to find the net first against the Neroverdi.
