Gennaro Gattuso would take his Napoli side Sassuolo hoping to get his first win as their manager in this game.
The Naples side has been struggling for much of this season which caused Carlo Ancelotti to lose his job, they are still 8th on the league table, but they are also 11 points off the top four now.
Sassuolo has also been underwhelming this season, but they come here unbeaten in their last four league games and they have 2 points less than Napoli ahead of this game so they would be feeling confident.
Sassuolo has struggled this season but their 2-2 draw at Juventus would give them the confidence to go for the win in this game.
Vlad Chiriches and Gregoire Defrel are both injured for Sassuolo ahead of this game.
Kevin Malcuit and Nikola Maksimovic would both miss this game for Napoli.
Head to Head
Napoli has dominated the recent head to head between these teams as they have won three and lost none of the last five.

Napoli would hope to kickstart their season under Gattuso but his first game ended in a defeat.
Sassuolo has struggled this season with so much inconsistency, and their home form has also been terrible.
The home side has lost three of their last five home games and they have won just one of their last five home games against Napoli.
Napoli hasn’t been doing overly badly on the road recently, they have lost just one of their last five away games, but they have won none of those games.
Both teams have scored in all of their last four times Napoli has visited Sassuolo and that should be the case here.
Three of their last head to head and four of Napoli’s last five away games have all ended in under 2.5 goals, and we see that pattern continuing here.
