There will be exciting action in Serie A on Friday evening, as the league-leaders are back in action. Napoli will be looking to stretch their advantage at the top of the standings with a sixth straight victory. However, Sassuolo will have home advantage on Friday.
Serie A Preview
Napoli’s sensational season in Serie A has continued since play resumed after the World Cup, and the Italian league leaders will be looking to record a sixth straight league win on Friday evening. Their advantage at the top of the standings is already a commanding one, as they sit 15 points clear of Inter Milan. No side in Serie A has scored more goals than the team from Naples this term, while Napoli also have the best defensive record in the Italian top-flight,
Napoli continued their charge toward the Serie A title over the weekend, as they landed a comprehensive 3-0 win over Cremonese at home. Victor Osimhen and Elif Elmas were among the scorers in that dominant success. It looks hard to bet against them winning the Serie A title this term.
However, Sassuolo has shown a recent strong run of form, and they will likely come into this fixture confident of upsetting the odds. They currently sit 15th overall in the Serie A standings, and that sees them sit seven above the drop zone.
But, their recent form has been pretty encouraging, as they have gone four league matches without defeat. Over that period, they have secured two wins, and they will be looking for a third win in four on Friday. In their most recent game, they played out an entertaining 2-2 draw against Udinese away from home.
Sassuolo vs Napoli Head to Head
Sassuolo has picked up just two wins from their previous 20 meetings against Napoli. Over that same period, Napoli has landed eleven wins, and have averaged 2.1 goals per game. Each of the previous two have been won by Napoli, with the current league leaders scoring ten goals in total across those matches.
Sassuolo vs Napoli Prediction
It has been a pleasure to watch Napoli this term, but they will likely need to show their fighting qualities this weekend against an in-form Sassuolo. Regardless, it’s hard to bet against the leaders, and we could see them picking up a 2-1 win on the road.
