Sassuolo vs Napoli Prediction & Betting tips
After the international break Sassuolo must again on point hunting. After all, the Northern Italians have three points ahead of a relegation zone. With Naples but waiting for a heavy opponent in the 30th round. The bookmakers also see Sassuolo Calcio as a clear outsider in this game – winning successful home team betting returns nine times the wager! Already in the first leg in October, the northern Italians had no chance. At that time, Naples was still league leaders and won the home game without a discussion 3-1.
At present, the southern Italians are only in second place in the table. By losing to Rome, they have lost important points in the race for the Scudetto. With 18 goals scored Sassuolo represents the worst offensive in the league. It hits Italy’s second-best defensive at 17:00 at Mapei Stadium. After all, Sassuolo has always scored in the last five direct duels. Even in today’s game bets – despite the poor offensive of the home team – in this direction are recommended. The betting odds are in the 1.8 range, that Sassuolo scores a hit. But in this article I opted for supposedly safer bets and recommend them with seven units.
Sassuolo has not been in the top league for very long. Only in the season 2013/14, the Northern Italians denied their first season in Serie A. Since 2012 success coach Eusebio Di Francesco was on the sidelines of the Black Greens. During this time, Sassuolo earned several opportunities to rise in the Serie A. After the successful ascent Di Francesco kept his team in the top division and secured in the 2015/16 season even the sixth place. This Sassuolo was entitled for the first time in club history for European games. As they skipped the playoffs, they were eligible for the group stage of the Europa League. In the group with KRC Genk, Athletic Bilbao and Rapid Wien, the Italians finished last. After the season, Di Francesco moved to the capital and has since coached AS Roma. This finish was noticeable in this season.
Sassuolo has so far won only a quarter of all games. With 27 points in the account, it currently only enough for the 15th place. After all, the team battled away from the relegation places by a victory before the international break. Nevertheless, the distance to the 17th place is only three meters. In general, all teams in Serie A are relegated to thirteenth place. Therefore, Sassuolo should definitely come to points. Whether this undertaking against Naples succeed, I doubt. After all, Domenico Berardi is missing in this game. The 23-year-old forward received a red card in the game against Lazio.
Naples is currently the last competitor for Juventus in the race for the Scudetto. The southern Italians led Serie A for a long time from the top. Since the defeat against Roma and the draw against Inter, the old lady has taken the lead again. After all, the Turin made on the final day before the international break a slip-up. This closed Naples up to two points. Thus, everything is open nine laps before the end. The direct duel on April 22 will probably bring a preliminary decision. In this game, the southern Italians have to travel to Turin. Until then, Napoli must win every game. In the away game against Sassuolo are the footballers from the edge of Vesuvius the clear favorite. The betting odds for a victory of the Neapolitans are located in the 1.3 range. Nevertheless, the opponent should not be underestimated. After all, in the last direct duels they have always had to pocket a goal against the underdog. Currently, Naples are the second-best defensive in the league – only Juventus has received fewer goals.
For Naples, the championship is the only chance for a title this year. Already in the Champions League group stage disappointed the Italians and finished only third place behind Manchester City and Donetsk. Napoli started after the winter break only in the Europa League. With RB Leipzig they had an extremely heavy opponent zugelost. After the return match, it was in the overall 3: 3. Since the Germans scored three away goals, they qualified for the knockout stages. Also in the Coppa disappointed the southern Italians. At the beginning of this year they received at the local Stadio San Paolo Atalanta Bergamo. Shortly after the break Castagna met the lead for the away team. Gomez doubled in the 81st minute, so Mertens’s late goal came too late. The Belgian is with 17 hits the best scorer of Naples. In the league scorers list he shares with Dybala the third place.
