Inter Milan vs Napoli: prediction for the Serie A fixture
Inter Milan had an overall decent start to the season, but they made a couple of mistakes, which cost them dearly. The defending champions are now 7 points behind the current leaders of the Serie A, and it will be extremely hard for Simone Inzaghi's men to catch up with AC Milan and Napoli. At the same time, the Nerazzurri are pressured by Atalanta, Lazio, and Roma, who can challenge their standings. In the last round, Inter Milan had the opportunity to strengthen their position, but got only a draw in the Milan derby (1:1), and they look to narrow the gap with Napoli this Sunday.
In the upcoming week, the Nerazzurri have a crucial Champions League game against Shakhtar Donetsk. After the first four games, Inter are second in the group, but they aren't yet guaranteed to qualify for the playoffs. The match on Wednesday will be decisive, as victory prectically guarantees the Top-2 finish for Inter.
Napolihave been demonstrating beautiful football since the first rounds of Serie A, and they secured a comfortable handicap against the opponents early on. Luciano Spaletti's men top the league standings, but now the second AC Milan are behind only on goal difference. In the last round, Napoli also only got a draw, but where Inter failed to beat AC Milan, Napoli drew with the modest Verona (1:1). Still, Napoli are on an impressive unbeaten streak of 21 games.
Napoli haven't secured a ticket to the playoffs in the Europa League, but they are on top of their group with 7 points in the asset. On Thursday, they travel to Moscow for a clash with Spartak, and in case of a victory, they can come closer to the knockouts.
This score was recorded in 2 of the last 10 away games of Napoli.
This bet played in the last 2 head-to-head games in Milan.
In the last 2 away matches, Napoli scored in the second half.
Inter looked very powerful against their bitter rivals, and should have won that game. Today they surely will try to catch up with one of the leaders of Serie A and beat Napoli, who haven't yet tasted defeat this season. In the last 2 head-to-head games at Inter, the Nerazzurri managed to win, and we think that they will be able to succeed today, especially because Napoli regularly fail on the defensive of late.
