Sassuolo is currently in ninth place in the Serie A standings and has not been at its best so far this season. The Neroverdi edged Hellas Verona to a critical 2-1 victory in their previous game and will look to achieve a similar result this weekend.
Napoli, on the other hand, is at the top of the league table and has been in exceptional form this season. The Neapolitan outfit eased past Rangers by a comfortable 3-0 margin this week and will be confident ahead of this fixture.
Napoli is unbeaten in their last 15 matches in the Serie A – the longest such streak currently active in the competition. With a victory in this fixture, Napoli could equal their best-ever start to a Serie A season in their history.
Sassuolo can pack a punch on their day but are up against one of Europe’s most dangerous teams. Napoli is the better team at the moment and should be able to win this game.
