Napoli vs Sassuolo: Preview, kick-off time and where to watch on TV and online

Napoli got their Serie A title defence off to the best possible start on Matchday 1, but now they must follow it up with a win at home to Sassuolo.


Napoli got their title defence off to a great start last weekend with a victory away at Frosinone, but a potentially tougher test awaits on Sunday as they host Sassuolo.

Victor Osimhen netted twice against Frosinone last Saturday as Rudi Garcia‘s side came from a goal down to win 3-1, whilst Sassuolo held Atalanta out until the 83rd minute before succumbing to a 2-0 defeat at the Mapei Stadium.

They will feel that there are positives to take from that display into this match against the champions and Napoli may need to be patient in their search for the opening goal.

Napoli vs Sassuolo: Predicted lineups

Napoli were without Khvicha Kvaratskhelia for their opening game of the season and there is a chance that he will also miss this one due to an injury. That will mean that there should be more minutes for Giacomo Raspadori.

Rudi Garcia is likely to go with the same starting eleven again given they impressed in the first game and there is no fixture congestion to worry about at this stage.

As for Sassuolo, Ruan is going to be back from a suspension and there is a lot of focus on whether Domenico Berardi will play given the transfer speculation around him.

Napoli predicted lineup vs Sassuolo (4-3-3): Meret; Di Lorenzo, Rrahmani, Jesus, Olivera; Cajuste, Lobotka, Zielinski; Politano, Osimhen, Raspadori

Sassuolo predicted lineup vs Napoli (4-2-3-1): Consigli; Toljan, Erlic, Viti, Vina; Lopez, Henrique; Defrel, Bajrami, Lauriente; Pinamonti
