Match Preview

Inter Milan will likely be without their top scorer and they are up against the best defense in the league on Sunday. Napoli showed one of the weakest attacking performances in a 1-1 draw to Verona in the previous round. Each of the last five head to head encounters ended with fewer than three goals scored. It has to be a low-scoring contest.

Inter Milan vs Napoli Head-to-head

  • Inter Milan have been much more successful in the latest head to head history of the clashes against Napoli at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.
  • Inter won 13, drew 4, and lost 4 of the last 21 home outings against Napoli.
  • None of the last five head to head encounters between these two teams saw three or more goals scored.

Inter Milan vs Napoli Predictions & Analysis

Inter Milan and Napoli are set to lock horns in the derby of the 13th Serie A Matchday on Sunday afternoon at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.

Napoli’s unbeaten run will thus be on a serious test (probably the toughest possible) as the current Serie A leaders take on the reigning champions away from home.

To be fair, Inter Milan have been miles away from the last season’s form in this term of the Serie A, but they can still be a formidable force on their day against any opposition in the league.

Simone Inzaghi’s troops ended a three-win streak across competitions with a 1-1 draw in the last round’s Derby della Madonnina against Milan. They seem to have tightened things up defensively of late as the team allowed only two goals in the last four matches in all competitions.

Inzaghi will be worried about the condition of his top scorer Edin Dzeko who missed an important World Cup qualifier for Bosnia-Herzegovina last weekend against Finland through injury.

Napoli have by far the best defense in the league. They have allowed only four goals in twelve league outings this term. However, the Partinopei dropped the ball last time out, playing only a 1-1 draw at home to Verona.

Key Stats

  • Four of the last five matches Inter Milan played in all competitions ended with fewer than three goals scored.
  • Inter Milan drew in two of their last four league games.
  • Napoli also drew in two of their last four Serie A outings.
  • Just one of the last five matches they played saw three or more goals scored.
