Stadium: Stadio San Paolo
There have been a series of tight tussles between Napoli and Inter Milan in recent times and we’re hoping that trend continues at Stadio San Paolo on Sunday night.
The last four encounters have thrown up two goalless stalemates and a 1-0 win for each team, so defences have definitely been on top when they get together in Serie A.
That record makes 11/10 for under 2.5 goals in this weekend’s clash a solid Napoli vs Inter Milan prediction.
A Look At Napoli’s Betting Odds
Admittedly, Napoli can afford to open up, as they have wrapped up second place behind Juventus again with a hat-trick of victories.
The quality of opposition has been questionable, though, with Frosinone beaten 2-0 before Cagliari and Spal were edged out 2-1.
Dries Mertens and Lorenzo Insigne are expected to be available after missing last Sunday’s trip to Paolo Mazza through injury, but both could be forgiven for looking after themselves at this stage of the season.
Arkadiusz Milik seems to have gone off the boil, with just one goal in nine games, so Carlo Ancelotti may be more cagey with his tactics now facing tough opponents.
Looking at the Napoli vs Inter Milan odds, we think 12/5 for a draw is a value option here.
A Look At Inter Milan’s Betting Odds
Inter climbed back up to third, 10 points adrift of Napoli, when stretching their unbeaten run to seven games with Monday night’s 2-0 defeat of Chievo at the San Siro.
Matteo Politano and Ivan Perisic netted for the Nerazzurri in a steady display against the already-relegated basement dwellers, who had Nicola Rigoni sent off.
However, Inter had drawn four of their previous five fixtures, with Luciano Spalletti content to share the spoils with high-ranking rivals Juventus, Roma and Atalanta.
With two rounds of matches remaining, the Nerazzurri are a point ahead of the last-named outfit and four clear of Roma and AC Milan, so a top-four finish is within their grasp.
Picking up another point here would surely be seen as an acceptable result, with Empoli then set to visit the San Siro on the closing day.
Only Juve have conceded fewer goals than this well-drilled team this term and we like 21/10 for the score to be 0-0 at half-time to finish off our Napoli vs Inter Milan betting tips.
Spal 1-2 NAPOLI – Allan, Mario Rui
INTER MILAN 2-0 Chievo – Matteo Politano, Ivan Perisic
Head-to-head: Inter 1-0 Napoli, Inter 0-0 Napoli, Napoli 0-0 Inter, Inter 0-1 Napoli, Napoli 3-0 Inter
