Predictions for Napoli vs Inter Milan
The Serie A title race takes centre stage this weekend as Napoli look to make a return to the top of the table by beating the current league leaders Inter Milan. Just 1pt separates the two clubs ahead of kick-off and Napoli really need a win as Inter still have a game in hand.
There is a great chance that we will see both of these great teams get on the scoreboard this weekend as that has been the case in three of their last five head-to-heads in all competitions. Three of Napoli's last six outings have produced goals at both ends of the pitch, as have four of Inter Milan's last six matches in league and cup.
Over 2.5 Goals
Over 2.5 goals were scored when these two sides last locked horns and it was Inter that claimed all 3pts back in November courtesy of a 3-2 scoreline. At least three goals have been scored in two of Napoli's last four fixtures, while four of Inter's last six outings have produced over 2.5 goals.
Napoli vs Inter Milan – Stats, Markets & Odds
Can Napoli beat Inter and move back to the top of the table?
Napoli were made to fight hard for all 3pts away at struggling newly-promoted side Venezia with the pair going in a t the break goalless. Napoli's class did show in the second forty-five as Osimhen put the visitors in front in the 59th-minute. Venezia were reduced to 10-men in stoppage time when Ebuehi was shown a straight red card and Napoli capitalised by scoring a second goal via Petagna in what was effectively the 100th-minute in a game that had a lot of stoppage time added on.
Napoli Predicted Lineup – Ospina, Jesus, Rui, Di Lorenzo, Koulibaly, Anguissa, Lobotka, Ruiz, Insigne, Politano & Osimhen
Inter Milan were involved in some midweek Coppa Italia action, beating Roma 2-0 at the San Siro. The hosts even rotated a number of their usual starting eleven and still managed to take an early lead through form Roma striker Dzeko and the ex-Arsenal and Man Utd forward, Sanchez, added the second goal in the 68th-minute to wrap up the result. Inter remain the champions-elect but a defeat this weekend would open the door for both Napoli and AC Milan to move ahead of them in the Serie A table.
Inter Milan Predicted Lineup – Handanovič, Dumfries, D'Ambrosio, Škriniar, de Vrij , Perišić, Vidal, Brozović, Çalhanoğlu, Martínez & Džeko
Napoli: Piotr Zielinski and Hirving Lozano are injury concerns but Andre Anguissa and Kalidou Koulibaly return to the squad following international duty.
Inter Milan: Alessandro Bastoni is suspended while Joaquin Correa will miss the game due to a hamstring injury.
