Despite its chances of claiming the third ever Serie A title all but over, Napoli will still be looking to collect maximum points when it hosts Sassuolo this weekend in Serie A 2021-22.
After failing to win in 3 consecutive games, Napoli is almost out of the title race, as a 7 point deficit it has to reach the top spot looks almost impossible to cover in the 4 games it is scheduled to play before the season ends. Luciano Spaletti will be particularly disappointed with the team’s performance in the last match.
Napoli dominated Empoli right from the start and held possession of the ball for 60% of the time. By the half-time, the visitors were ahead by 1-0, and a goal in the 55th minute have them a comfortable 2-0 lead. But 3 quick goals within the last 10 minutes, including a brace by Pinamonti, helped the hosts edge ahead and secure 3 points. Despite these hiccups, Napoli will almost certainly be qualifying for next year’s Champions League.
Sassuolo also seems to be going through a rough patch. As the team sits bang in the middle of the table at 10th place, it is neither going to qualify for a European spot nor is it going to face relegation. This will help the players relax, and they are likely to play fearlessly when they take to the field.
Sassuolo has lost 2 consecutive games before its trip to Napoli and will be looking to get back to winning ways in order to end the tournament on a sweet note. Last week, Sassuolo hosted Juventus. After netting the first goal, Sassuolo was unable to hold on to its lead for long and eventually conceded 3 points to the visitors. In this match too, Sassuolo starts as the underdogs on most football betting sites.
Match prediction and football betting tips for SSC Napoli vs Sassuolo Calcio Serie A 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium, Naples, on 30th April 2022.
This game provides a perfect opportunity for Napoli to get back to winning ways, and be ready to pounce on any opportunity that could open up, should the top two teams see a sudden dip in their form. Spaletti is likely to start with a 4-2-3-1 formation in this game but will have to do so without the presence of Eljif Elmas and Stanislav Lobotka, both of whom are injured.
The visitors on the other hand have a long list of absentees, including Jeremy Toljan, Abdou Harroui, Filippo Romagna, and Pedro Obiang.
The hosts should have no problems in winning this one.
Bet on Napoli to win.
Napoli hasn’t been so good at protecting its net in the last few games, conceding in each of its last 10 matches. It has kept just 1 clean sheet at home in the top-flight games played since December and is unlikely to do so against Sassuolo, who have scored in 10 of their last 11 games.
3 of the last 5 top-flight games between the 2 clubs have seen more than 2.5 goals being scored in them. 7 of the last 8 games for Sassuolo, and 5 of the last 6 games for Napoli have seen a similar outcome, and we expect another goal fest this weekend.
