Our prediction for this Serie A match:
All eyes will be on Mapei Stadium – Citta del Tricolore when Sassuolo and Napoli face each other in the Serie A round 15. Sassuolo did remarkably well to shock Milan at Stadio San Siro, with the team putting an end to their three-game winless run. The Neroverdi aim to move closer to the Europa League berth, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Wednesday’s clash. Both Djuricic and Boga are sidelined with injuries, while Obiang continues to miss out through illness.
The Neapolitans, on the other hand, rolled over Lazio 4-0 at the weekend, with the team retaining top position in the standings. Given Napoli’s attacking potential, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on over 2.5 goals. Keep in mind, though, that key attacker Osimhen is injured for the visitors, as well as Ounas and Anguissa. Both Ounas and Politano have been tested positive for coronavirus.
