Napoli v Inter Milan Betting Tips & Predictions
Juventus have raced off with another Scudetto title this season in Italy, although Napoli have had another solid campaign under Carlo Ancelotti, with the Naples team confirming that they’re currently the second best team in the country.
There will be obvious disappointment among the Azzurri ranks when it comes to the failure to qualifying for the Champions League knockout stage and then followed a Europa League defeat against Arsenal when they were sitting pretty to win the trophy.
Nevertheless, the team have averaged more than two points per Serie A game and this match at the Stadio San Paolo will have the supporters celebrating their team’s success over the past eight months, with an Inter team arriving who want to make sure of a top four finish.
Internazionale were another Italian team who came desperately close to reaching the knockout stage of the Champions League and it will be especially galling to see Tottenham Hotspur in the final of the competition considering that they nearly edged out Spurs.
Luciano Spalletti has steered the Milan team to third in the Serie A table, with the Italian having made sure that the defence is particularly robust and the Nerazzurri have avoided defeat in the past seven matches.
They’ve also conceded no more than one goal in any of the past eight matches and will be confident of securing a draw in this clash, with Mauro Icardi bidding to score for the first time in seven games after a mini-drought.
Former Southampton left-back Cedric Soares forms part of a strong back line tat also features veteran Brazilian defender Miranda and we could be in for a cagey encounter against a Napoli side who have second spot in the bag.
Ancelotti’s side have failed to win at home on six occasions and they needed a late Mario Rui goal to recently win at SPAL.
