Inter vs Napoli Prediction & Betting tips
Does Naples play the Scudetto within two matchdays? In 1990, Napoli won the Italian championship for the last time. At that time, a certain Diego Armando Maradona kicked for the southern Italians. This time it looked as if Naples could win the title again, but on the final day there was the home defeat against AS Roma and already the Scudetto is in great danger. Naples still have the championship in their own hands, as the second leg at Juventus is soon approaching. However, the match at Inter Milan this Sunday will be a hard test for the Neapolitans.
Inter Milan wants to return to the Champions League and this season has the best chances to qualify for participation in the premier class in the coming season. At the moment, Inter Milan is in fifth place with two points and one point behind AS Roma and Lazio in ranks three and four. Inter Milan still have the catch-up game against AC Milan in the hindquarters, which was canceled last weekend because of the tragedy involving Fiorentina captain Davide Astori. Had it not been for the break-in from mid-December, then Inter Milan would not only be almost certain in the Champions League, the club could also have a say in the championship. However, there were only five draws and two defeats in seven games in Serie A between 16.12.2017 and 03.02.2018. Thus, Inter Milan only scored five out of a possible 21 points. By way of comparison, the gap to Naples is 18 and that of Juventus is 17 points.
Only on 11.02.2018 there was again a threesome, but promptly followed by a defeat. Last weekend, Inter Milan beat Benevento Calcio and hope to start a small positive series. At home Inter Milan has been unbeaten for at least five games. In fact, Inter Milan lost only 14 of their Serie A games at home to Udinese Calcio. There were also nine wins and four draws. Except for the 0-0 draw against Lazio, Inter met Milan in all home games this season. The home record against Naples in this millennium is positive. In eleven home games, there were seven victories and only two defeats for Inter Milan. But: In the four home games since 2014, there was only one more victory, two draws and finally a bankruptcy.
Mum Mia! As Naples put this great run in Serie A and won ten games in a row and must fear since the defeat last weekend, but again for the championship. Naples was in first place for 11 consecutive matches, but is currently playing only because Juventus’s game against Atalanta Bergamo was postponed due to snowfall on the penultimate weekend. Napoli’s defeat on the final day of the match and Juventus’s recent last-gasp win over Lazio mean that Napoli’s advantage over one game is just one more. It was a bitter collapse, which at home against Roma 2: 4 was also relatively high. The odds ratio was 26:11 in favor of Naples. The Neapolitans ended up with 13: 5 in the shoot-offs as well, but four of the Romans’ five shots were just inside the goal. Even 66% ball possession could not avert the defeat of Naples.
It was also their only second defeat in the 27th Serie A game this season. The other was also at home against Juventus. In the local Stadio San Paolo there were also two of the previous three draws in league play. Conversely, this means that Napoli only scored once in 13 matches. That was the goalless draw at Chievo Verona. Napoli has won all of their remaining 12 away games, making them the best Away away team with a 30: 7 goal difference. Napoli have won all of their last six competitive games away from home and have not conceded a goal in their last five away wins. After the defeat against AS Roma, the departure from the Europa League against RB Leipzig and the failure in the Coppa Italia Naples threatened yet again a season without a title.
