Napoli vs Sassuolo
KICK OFF: Sunday 7th October 2018 | 18:00 CET
SERIE A WK8 | STADIO SAN PAOLO
Napoli are the Bookies favourites but backing Free-scoring Sassoulo to find the net offers good value
Napoli are heavy favourites with the bookies to claim all three points, but Sassoulo are in good form too.
Napoli have won four of their five games thus far, a 3 – 0 loss to Sampdoria being their only defeat in the current campaign. The Partenopei have turned up in the big games this season with wins against Lazio and Milan. If Sassuolo’s form is anything to go by, this fixture will be no walk in the park. Napoli does have enough attacking quality in Mertens, Insigne, and Callejon, however, but the trio must step up if they are to orchestrate a positive result against rampant Sassoulo.
The visitors are the highest scorers in the league so far, with 12 goals in five games. They have the tenacity and are not afraid to have a go, as seen in their recent match against Juventus. Prince Boateng is the one leading from the front with three goals to show for his efforts. The player has taken to this team like a duck to water, and he will be seeking more goals against Napoli.
Sassuolo’s free-scoring form unequivocally presents excellent value for backing goals with Napoli to be the likely victors.
