Reason For Sassuolo VS Napoli Betting Tips
Napoli have set themselves the aim of securing an automatic berth in next season’s Champions League, following their impressive season in Europe. Their ambitions of making the top two were boosted, as second placed Roma drew 1-1 last weekend. However, there’s still no room for error for the Partenopei. With six games to close a two point gap, the Neapolitans need a really strong finish in order to secure second.
Napoli’s push for the Champions League group stages takes them to Sassuolo. Last season’s surprise package currently sit in the bottom half of the table, following a poor campaign. The Neroverdi sit 10 points off the top half, and 23 points off sixth, the position they claimed last term. Having lost 56% of their home matches in Serie A, and suffering a defeat in six of their last seven at the MAPEI, we can’t see Sassuolo causing a shock here.
The visitors are the highest scoring side in Italy, with 75 goals already. They have a very adventurous style, but recent displays have seen them mix attack and defence. They’ve recorded back to back 3-0 victories, keeping their chase for second very much alive. Having won 67% of their away trips, Napoli should continue their good recent form with another victory.
Napoli have scored three times in five of their last six outings, and they’re up against a team without much going forward. Sassuolo have lost to nil in 38% of their home games, failing to score in almost half their outings at the MAPEI. They’ve scored 57% of their goals this term on the road, and now they take on a team who average 2.53 goals per game on their travels.
Napoli have won by two or more goals in 50% of their away victories, while 55% of Sassuolo’s home defeats have been by two or more goals. The visitors have won by a two goal margin in 71% of their Serie A triumphs, and we’re backing them to record another comfortable win this weekend. We’re backing the Partenopei to win with a -1.5 Asian Handicap, which is priced at 21/20 with bet365.
