Preview: Sassuolo vs Napoli

The Serie A is back in action with another set of matches this week as Sassuolo lock horns with an inconsistent Napoli side in a crucial encounter at the Stadio Citta del Tricolore on Wednesday.

Sassuolo (also known as US Sassuolo) and Napoli (commonly referred to as SSC Napoli) meet again 6 months after the Serie A match which Napoli won 2-0. Sassuolo are on a poor run of form as they’re approaching this clash after defeats from Empoli and Atalanta failing to register a single victory in their past 6 games. The coach and the players will probably put extra effort in the defense as they have been conceding goals for 6 consecutive matches now.

Napoli are going into the fixture after playing 3 draws in a row against Cagliari, Barcelona and Genoa. They have been conceding goals for 5 consecutive matches now which puts additional psychological pressure on the team.
