Inter Milan’s hopes of Champions League football are put to the test this weekend, as they clash with Napoli at the San Paolo. This is a tricky game for the visitors, who need three points in order to secure their top-four finish this term. That’s something Napoli achieved long ago, while the hosts are currently rallying to finish the season as well as they possibly can.
Napoli are facing their final home game of the season, with yet another trophy-less campaign for the Partenopei. It’s been a slight let down given the hype which surrounded Carlo Ancelotti’s arrival, but that’s not to say that he’s done a bad job. He has had a year to bed in his approach with a Napoli side who produced some brilliant displays last season, so we will be expecting much more from the Partenopei next term.
Head to Head
On the 20th of May, 2019, Napoli made the Italian giants to surrender on Matchday 37 at the Stadio San Paolo in Naples. It was a devastating defeat for Inter as they finished at the 4th spot in the table, after managing to structure a good form. Overall, both teams have had their equal shares of victories and defeats in the Serie A, whenever they clashed against each other. Although in the current season, Napoli have not made a great impact as they used to, but played a significant role in the Champions League. As for Inter, losing just once has helped the Nerazzurris to stay on top of the table.
Title vs Top 4
Yes, that is what both teams will be looking for when they enter the pitch on Tuesday at Naples, since Inter are very much stubborn on winning the title. As for Napoli, a place in the top 4 is something more than what they could ask for, although it is not impossible. But both sides are in for a tough game and it almost seems like Inter could walk away with 3 full points at the end of this game. Undoubtedly they have made significant progress this season and also have a great chance at winning the title. But let’s not forget that the opposing hosts are Napoli and they have been known in the league for a certain characteristic.
Here is the BettingPremier’s lineup prediction for Napoli vs Inter Milan clash:
Defenders: Di Lorenzo, Manolas, Hysaj, Rui
Midfielders: Elmas, Allan, Zielinski
Attackers: Insigne, Callejon, Mertens
Defenders: Bastoni, De Vrij, Skriniar
Midfielders: Candreva, Valero, Brozovic, Vecino, Biraghi
Attackers: Martinez, Lukak
For Napoli, a team that always inhabits the top 4, this season has been one of reckoning – a period in which the club has had to make a painful reappraisal of where they are going. Key Napoli midfielder Faouzi Ghoulam is approaching a return from a thigh problem whereas Kalidou Koulibaly, who has a leg injury, will be a huge miss with Lorenzo Tonelli and Kevin Malcuit out. In Inter, however, Napoli come up against a side playing with a real sense of confidence and attitude under Antonio Conte, who has given his team a clear backbone.
Crucial to Inter’s attitude has been the strike partnership of Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez, who have netted a combined total of 20 league goals this term and added definition to attacking movements.
It a tough call, although one might feel that Inter is the one who should be winning this challenge, the odds are really close. One thing that can be guaranteed is, there will be no draw, since both sides would be looking to lead from the start and they won’t be settling soon. Factually, Inter slightly dominate the odds and they might go on to win this game and Napoli will certainly do what they are really good at doing.
