Sassuolo vs. Napoli Match Analysis

On Wednesday night, two Serie A teams, facing a difficult 2023-24 campaign for different reasons, will meet at the Mapei Stadium as Sassuolo host reigning champions Napoli.

Match Preview

Sassuolo’s winless streak in Serie A has extended to six matches as they suffered a 3-2 defeat to Empoli last weekend. This loss marked their 15th in the league this season.

Following this disappointing result, manager Alessio Dionisi was relieved of his duties.

Sassuolo currently sits 17th in the Serie A standings, just above the relegation zone on goal difference.

They share the same number of points with Hellas Verona and Cagliari, who are placed 18th and 19th respectively.

Emiliano Bigica, the coach of Sassuolo’s youth team, has been appointed as the interim manager of the senior side.

He will be tasked with preparing the team for upcoming matches against an out-of-form Napoli, as well as fellow relegation-threatened teams Verona and Frosinone.

On the other hand, Napoli has struggled to secure victories in their recent matches.

Since their come-from-behind 2-1 win over Verona at the beginning of February, they have drawn all three of their subsequent matches, each ending in a 1-1 scoreline.

These draws have come against Genoa, Barcelona, and Cagliari.

Napoli currently occupies the 9th position in the Serie A table, trailing league leaders Inter Milan by a significant 29-point margin.

Additionally, their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League next season are hanging by a thread, as they find themselves 11 points adrift from the top four with only 13 matches remaining.

Prediction: Sassuolo 1-2 Napoli

Sassuolo has lost five of their last six matches, going through a rough phase. Napoli has won five of their six away matches against the bottom seven clubs in Serie A.

  • Prediction: Napoli to Win

All of Napoli’s past 15 matches in Serie A ended with three or less goals.

The statistics of both teams in the league this season show that there is a 70% chance that this match will produce under 3.5 goals.

  • Betting Tip: Under 3.5 Goals
