Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Napoli will look to make amends for an embarrassing 3-2 loss to Empoli when they host Sassuolo to their Stadio Diego Armando Maradona on Saturday afternoon. The Neapolitans aim to put an end to their three-game winless run, and they have no other option but to go all guns blazing at the Neroverdi. Poland international Piotr Zielinski is widely expected to return to the starting XI, while all Di Lorenzo, Elmas, and Lobotka remain in the recovery room. Ghoulam is a major doubt.
Sassuolo, on the other hand, failed to impress in back-to-back losses to Cagliari and Juventus, and seeing that they head into the season finale with the lack of motivation, home win should be considered. As for the visitors, both Toljan and Harroui are sidelined with injuries, while Obiang remains in the treatment room with heart problems.
