Sassuolo – Napoli Prediction & Preview and Betting Tips (23.04.2017)


Prediction for Sassuolo – Napoli

Over 2.5 goals @ 1.49

On Sunday (23.04) the US Sassuolo receives the SSC Naples in the Mapei Stadium. Naples are looking to forget the rather disappointing 1: 1 draw in the first leg in Naples and regain the second table position of AS Roma. Sassuolo can go into the home game with no luck. Class retention is very secure because the distance to the 18th place is now 14 points. This season are just six more games in the league. The results of the last five duels between these clubs clearly speak for the SSC Naples. Naples won three games, won a draw in the last match and only had to beat once.


Sassuolo scored positive results in the last two league games. The team won 2-1 against Sampdoria and won a 1: 1 draw against Atalanta Bergamo. After three defeats before, the team was able to fuel self-confidence again in these two games. Sassuolo is placed in the 14th place. The class content has already been achieved, but the upper half of the table can probably no longer be reached. For Sassuolo, the last six league games do not have much more. The team of coach Eusebio Di Francesco show a clear home deficit this season. Although they were able to win a victory against Samdoria as before, they had been victorious in their own stadium since the 4-1 win over Palermo on 15 January. This is also reflected in the home table, where they occupy only 16th place.

Personell the coach has to fight with some personnel problems. Gregoire Defrel (MS) injured his ankle about a week ago and will probably not be able to run up. Federico Peluso (RV) and Matteo Politano (RA) will certainly be missing due to a yellow lock. Especially the failure of Defrel would be a severe setback, as this is currently nine goals with four and the top scorer of Sassuolo. Positive news for Di Francesco is that the captain captain Francesco Magnanelli (DM) was able to return to the team training after a crossbreak crack.


The SSC Naples is currently in a top position. In the last ten league games, they only had a defeat and a draw. The last defeat they lost against Atalanta Bergamo with 0-2. In the previous three games Naples have always scored three goals – including the top teams Lazio Rome and Juventus Turin.

Naples is currently in third place in the table with 70 points and is fighting for the Vizemeister title this year (72 points). The Juventus champions have a six-goal lead over Naples ten minutes before the end and will be back in the lead again this year. Particularly impressive is the away balance of the team of coach Maurizio Sarri. Naples have now been undefeated for nine away games and have even won eight of these nine games. Juventus was the last away win on the 11th day. Accordingly, the team in the foreign table is also in the first place.

Maurizio Sarri does not have to do without any of his players and can get the full amount. No one is injured or barred for the game against Sassuolo. The offensive of Naples is to be emphasized. In this case, however, a player does not stand out particularly, but the entire offensive division functions as a collective. This is also reflected in the scorer points. Dries Mertens scored 21 goals and set eight goals, Lorenzo Insigne scored 14 goals and set seven, Marek Hamsik scored eleven goals and could take ten draws and José Callejón scored ten times, scoring 11 goals. This incurability of the players in the team also meant that Naples scored the highest goals of all teams in the league with a total of 75 goals.
