Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Following a routine 3-0 win over Cremonese, Napoli will look to cement top position in the Serie A standings when they face Sassuolo on Matchday 23. The Partenopei are on the right track to win their first Scudetto since 1990, and we are positive that they will stick to their attacking style of play against Sassuolo. Barring any fresh injury worries to report, Luciano Spalletti is unlikely to make changes to the team that outplayed Cremonese at the weekend.
The Neroverdi, on the other hand, have been showing signs of improvement of late, with the team beating both Milan (5-2) and Sassuolo (1-0), while sharing the spoils with Udinese, and seeing that Napoli would be happy with one point from Friday’s encounter, we are tempted to put our money on draw. The good news for the hosts is that defender Rogerio is back from suspension.
Highlighted Player (Domenico Berardi):
Once one of the most promising young players in Serie A, Domenico Berardi is the Italian footballer that plays for Sassuolo and the Italy national team. Born in Cairati, Calabria, the forward begun his professional career back in 2012, when he helped the Neroverdi win Serie B and play in Serie A next season and was named as the best player of the competition, only 18 years of age.
He made his first appearance for the Italy U19 national team in the same season. His excellent performances draw the attention of Juventus and the Old Lady confirmed in the beginning of the Season 2013/14 that Domenico Berardi joined the club on a co-ownership deal.
