Napoli vs Sassuolo Free Betting Tips
Serie A turns on the home stretch and on the third last matchday Napoli receives the kickers from Sassuolo. The guests made a very good restart: after a 1: 4 clap against Atalanta, there were four wins and two draws.
Last Tuesday evening there was the showdown with the AC Milan for seventh place, which brings the last ticket for the Europa League. The match ended in a 1-2 defeat, which is why the hope of participating in the continental competition has now been dashed.
For the home side, the only thing left is to end the season with sporty fairness. As the cup winner, the Europa League is already at home and the gap is too big to target the premier class.
Napoli – Statistics & current form
The SSC had to bake smaller rolls this year. Instead of the last consistent role of number two in Serie A, there will be a maximum of one rank in the upper midfield in the end. The team of coach Gennaro Gattuso simply lacked the necessary consistency to be able to get involved in the top spheres of the league again.
Even the most recent performances were solid, but nothing more at the same time. There was no more than five rounds lost before the last matchday, but in the meantime there was a disappointing draw at Bologna and the win on matchday two against the relegation-threatened Udinese team was barely successful with a goal in added time.
Mertens will probably not show up again
Last Wednesday evening, a bankruptcy was again cashed at Parma. The use of Dries Mertens remains questionable. The best scorer in the history of southern Italy had to be replaced prematurely in the last home game against Udinese because of a muscle injury.
Gattuso will not take any chances with one of his best players, as the second leg of the Champions League against Barcelona is scheduled for early August. Another striker, Fernando Llorente, is currently striking due to injury. However, Milik can participate again after a card block.
SSC has a shaky defense
The real problem of the two-time champion is the defensive: no clean sheet has been brought in for eight match days. This applies no less to the four home games after the restart, which resulted in hits on both sides and at least three goals in the course of the game.
In view of this record and the recent unerring attack by the guests, the odds for more than two goals until the final whistle are given top value in the encounter between Napoli and Sassusolo.
Probable lineup of Napoli:
Ospina – Hisaj – Manolas – Koulibaly – Rui – Ruiz – Lobotka – Zielinski – Insigne – Callejon – Milik

Sassuolo – Statistics & current form
Sassuolo rose to Serie A for the first time in the club’s 100-year history six years ago. Since then, with one exception, it has only been enough for two-digit places for the respective final settlement.
It is currently going better: thanks to a great restart, the footballers from Emilia-Romagna were able to work their way up the tableau, although it will not be enough for the Europa League.
Sassuolo benefits from a strong line of attack
Coach Roberto De Zerbi can be especially proud of his team’s offensive performances at the moment. Since resumption of play operations, all ten league games have been scored at least once. The average value of own goals in this review is even 2.3 per game!
In this context, Francesco Caputo appears as a particularly valuable actor. The attacker has 19 goals this season and has played in the last four league games. With Domenico Berardi and Jeremie Boga, the eleventh of the previous year also has two offensive players who both have a double-digit goal yield.
Probable lineups of Sassuolo:
Pegolo – Ferrari – Muldur – Marlon – Rogerio – Traore – Locatelli – Djuric – Caputo – Boga – Haraslin
Last games from Sassuolo:
07/21 2020 Sassuolo 1 – 2 AC Milan

Napoli vs Sassuolo Free Betting Tips
As well as the offensive on the part of guests, the defensive is vulnerable. A combination that led to the fact that in the ten games after the resumption of the season with the participation of the table night, goals were scored on both sides.
For the upcoming match between Napoli and Sassuolo, the tip again includes a goal celebration for both opponents. This is supported not only by the just mentioned balance sheet of coach De Zerbi’s eleven, but by the similar pattern at Napoli.
