Napoli is welcoming Sassuolo to Stadio San Paolo in round 6 in the Italian Serie A.
After losing to Alkmaar in the Europa League 2 weeks ago, Napoli is now on a 2-game winning streak. Earlier this week, Napoli was playing against Real Sociedad on the road, and they have won that game by a goal in the 55th minute of the game. Napoli also conceded a red card in this match, but it was in the 92nd minute of the game. In their Serie A game against Benevento on the road last weekend, Napoli was the dominant team with 66% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 15 corner kicks, 5 big chances created, and a decent 88% of the correct passes. After losing 1-0 at the half time, Napoli was able to turn the game around in the season half, and Napoli has won this match 1-2. Lozano is the leading goalscorer for Napoli with 4 goals in Serie A so far this season, while Insigne, Mertens, and Politano each added 2 goals. Mertens added 3 assists, while Di Lorenzo and Politano added 2 assists. There are no injuries in Napoli, but Bakayoko is still questionable for this match. Napoli is now in 3rd place in the Serie A standings, and they are one of the best offensive teams with 14 scored goals, while their defense has been solid with 5 conceded goals. I think Napoli is playing well this season, and they will be a legit contestant for the title, as long as they can stay consistent.
Sassuolo is having a fantastic early season, and they are in high 4th place with 11 points, 16 scored goals, and 9 conceded goals. Sassuolo is also undefeated in Serie A with 3 wins and 2 draws in their first 5 games. Caputo has scored 5 goals for Sassuolo, while Djuricic and Berardi have each added 3 goals. Berardi, Ferrari, and Caputo all have 2 assists. Romagna, Toljan, and Haraslin are injured, while Defrel is still questionable for this game. Sassuolo was playing against Torino at home in their last Serie A game, and they have had 72% of ball possession in that match, 6 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and a high 91% of the correct passes. After losing at the half time, Sassuolo tied the score in the 71st minute. In the 77th, and the 79th minute, Sassuolo has conceded another 2 goals, and once again they were losing. In the 84th, and the 85th minute of the game, Sassuolo has scored 2 goals, and after plenty of chances, excitement, and goals, this match has ended in a 2-2 draw. Sassuolo has scored at least 1 goal in every one of their games so far this season, but they have also conceded a goal in each of their games.
The trends are on Napoli’s side in this matchup, and Napoli has not lost to Udinese in their last 8 games. Both teams are playing well, and Udinese is scoring a lot of goals, but they are also conceding a lot of goals. There is only 1 thing to side with there, and those are goals.
