With a definite spot in the Coppa Italia, the certified sports betting top pick, Napoli tries to extend their winning streak as they visit the Neroverdis in Città del Tricolore.

 

Match Date: 16 February 2014 (local time)
Venue: Città del Tricolore

 

Team Form

Sassuolo

Going against Inter left the Neroverdi down to their knees as they succumbed to a narrow 1-0 defeat. With the said loss, the club failed to move closer to the table’s safe zone.

 

Considering the result of their recent match, it can be readily seen that the Neroverdis have already suffered their fourth consecutive defeat during their last six (6) encounters. As a matter of fact, they were unsuccessful in eight (8) of their last nine (9) matches.

 

With their poor form, it is a bit hard to expect a win from Sassuolo—much more to expect a win against the strong Napoli. This is despite Alberto Malesani’s contention that the club shows significant improvements.

 

Napoli

Napoli is currently immersed in a dose of euphoria as they clinched two (2) important wins last week.

 

After losing to Atalanta, the Partenopei immediately bounced back and triumphed against another Serie A giant, AC Milan. Gokhan Inler and Gonzalo Higuain nailed the club’s three (3) points while the Rosonneris were left scoreless.

 

But perhaps, if there is anything that inspires Napoli even more, this is their entry into the final of the Coppa Italia.

 

As of the moment, Napoli enjoys its nine (9) undefeated run in Serie A.

 

Prediction:  Napoli

Rafael Benitez and his men are simply unstoppable. As exaggerating as it may sound, but Sassuolo will definitely need a miracle to outlast the Partenopeis.
