Napoli – Sassuolo

Napoli hosts Sassuolo at the Stadio San Paolo in a match from the 6th round of the Serie A. Here’s the best moment to preview this fixture for you. Let’s get to work!

Napoli had a very positive start of the 2020/21 season in the Serie A. At this moment the Azzurri are second in the standings with 11 points – just two points behind the leader Milan. Napoli have a record of four wins and one loss from five matches played. They are in a good shape, that’s for sure.

Last week Napoli acheved their 4th Serie A win for the season. Gennaro Gattuso’s boys faced the newcomers Benevento away from home and enjoyed a 2-1 win against the Witches. They conceded first, but turned the game around with goals from Lorenzo Insigne and Andrea Petagna.

Few days ago Napoli had a successful game in Europa League as well. The Italian giants traveled to Spain and faced Real Sociedad in San Sebastian. The match ended with a 1-0 win for Napoli. The only goal in the game was scored by Matteo Politano just 10 minutes after the halftime break.

Sassuolo can be very happy with the way they kicked off their 2020/21 season. At this moment they are surprisingly third in the standings with 11 points and still unbeaten after five rounds of football. This is a brilliant start of the campaign from the manager Roberto De Zerbi and his boys.

Last weekend Sassuolo took part in a very dramatic 3-3 draw against Torino at the MAPEI Stadium. Until the 84th minute the visitors had two goals advantage, but Sassuolo equalised with goals from Chiriches and Caputo.

That’s our preview for the Serie A game between Napoli and Sassuolo at the Stadio San Paolo. Usually Napoli would be the big favourites and they are, but be careful with Sassuolo – the visitors are still unbeaten since the start of the campaign.
