Andrea Pinamonti

Sassuolo come into this match without a manager after Alessio Dionisi was fired following a string of disappointing results. Napoli are also enjoying life under a new manager after Francesco Calzona was appointed a couple of weeks ago. They are yet to reap the benefits of the infamous new manager bounce but perhaps that could change against a team who are still searching for a new boss.

Pre-game odds and win probability: Roma backed for the win

  • HOME: 16/5 (4.20) – 23.8%
  • DRAW: 27/10 (3.70) – 27%
  • AWAY: 4/5 (1.80) – 55.6%

*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

The Sassuolo vs Napoli odds are perhaps taking Napoli's reputation into account too much as their form recently has been far from impressive.

Sassuolo are considered less likely to win the match than the draw despite being the home side here but there is always the possibility of certain players coming back into form after the dismissal of a manager, particularly with Saussuolo fighting for their lives towards the bottom of Serie A.
