Napoli vs Sassuolo Preview :
Both Napoli and Sassuolo are looking to get their seasons back on track at the San Paolo on Monday evening.
Napoli are seventh placed team at the table but with a very good run of three victories and four matches without defeat in their last five rounds. They are entering this match highly motivated and eager to keep the good run going. On the other side Sassuolo are without victory in their last eight matches in a row in all competitions, losing in five of them. They lost in their last Europa League match and practically lost all chances to continue the competition in the Knockout stage. They are entering this match very low on confidence and self-esteem and in order to stay undefeated in this match they will have to give their maximum. They will be mostly focused on defense but for sure will try to use their dominancy in air and score after a free kick or a break.
When it comes to their mutual encounters, Napoli won in four of their last five matches against Sassuolo in all competitions. Statistically they are favorites to win in this match as well and we expect to see them attacking from the first minute, putting constant pressure to the opposition defenders leaving little to no room for their attackers to come to the fore. Lots of excitements and many midfield duels are expected and it won’t be a surprise if referee shows many cards in this match.
