NEW LS Bet365 2 Steps Bottom Billboard 1 - Sassuolo v Napoli Predictions & Football Tips: Gattuso looking for the first win

Match Preview & Team News

Napoli’s board took a risk by firing Carlo Ancelotti and appointing the less experienced Gennaro Gattuso as his replacement on the bench. We are yet to see the impacts of such a decision, but it does not look promising after Gattuso’s debut against Parma last weekend. Partinopei suffered a 1-2 defeat to sink further to the 8th position in the Serie A standings. Can they bounce back in the last game of the Matchday No 17 on Sunday evening against Sassuolo?

Neroverdi kept their net untouched in the last two games

Sassuolo have never been popular for their defensive strength, but Roberto De Zerbi’s men stunned everyone with a run of two successive games without conceding a single goal. They’ve done it within three days as the team were in action in one of two mid-week fixtures, beating Brescia 0-2 on the road. Sassuolo have previously conceded two goals in four consecutive matches in all competitions.

Partinopei are winless in eight subsequent league affairs

Napoli did not look good under Carlo Ancelotti either, but we have the feeling they could have made the managerial change after the last game of the year to leave the new head coach more time to meet the players. Gattuso’s troops did dominate the pitch last time out against Parma, but the defensive line proved out to be too vulnerable allowing two goals on the break. Napoli did not keep a clean sheet in any of the last four away clashes in the Serie A and they also did not score more than a single goal in any of the last five league fixtures on the road.

Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction

Even though the visitors are in a must-win situation, we see little value in backing them top win at the 13/20 odds knowing they are winless in eight subsequent games. Instead, we will go for the draw at the 16/5 odds.

Goals Market Prediction

The value is also strong with the Under 2.5 goals FT pick at the 6/4 odds given Sassuolo’s recent defensive improvements.
