Inter vs Napoli Prediction & Betting tips
Two games before the end, Naples can again hope for participation in the Europa League, but the Neapolitans have a really difficult guest appearance in front of their chest.
On the 37th round of Serie A, Napoli will be visiting Inter Milan on Tuesday. It is the top game of the day, the second receives the seventh. Naples need a win to be hopeful of climbing past AC Milan to sixth place – Europa League rival Milan is visiting Sampdoria on Wednesday and can add more.
Although the Scudetto has already been decided – Juventus Turin is the old and new champion in Italy – Inter is still motivated to make the runner-up championship clear and to become ‘best of the rest’ in Italy. For Naples there is much more at stake, but Inter also wants to win the remaining games.
Before the game Inter Milan against Naples, the odds indicate a slight favorite role of the host despite this starting position.
Inter Milan :
It has been clear for weeks that Juventus will win the championship in Italy again – on Sunday evening it was finally time – nevertheless Inter has not lost focus in the past few weeks. Although there were two slip-ups at Roma (2: 2) on match day 34 and against Florence (0: 0), which ultimately destroyed the title dream, Inter now has at least the runner-up championship in mind.
Even if it wasn’t enough for the top, this somewhat prestigious place behind Juve should be won. At the moment, things are looking good too: Antonio Conte’s men jumped to second place thanks to the safe 3-0 win at Genoa CFC, because rival Atalanta Bergamo did not get past 1-1 at AC Milan at the same time.
Two wins in the final games, and Inter is Italy’s runner-up – if you look at Inters form, the Nerazzurri are considered second place favorites, having been unbeaten for six games.
A main reason for this is attacker Romelu Lukaku, who is in excellent shape. The 27-year-old is thriving at Inter and is in the shape of his life. The Belgian scored 29 goals in 45 competitive games, the best value of his career.
In Serie A, Lukaku already has 23 goals, but he puts historical figures for Inter: Only two players have scored more goals in their debut season for Inter Milan, Istvan Nyers (26 goals, 1948/49) and the legendary Brazilian Ronaldo ( 25 goals, 1997/98) – both can still be overtaken or even overtaken by Lukaku.
Lukaku also met again in Genoa, his double set meant the setting of a club record: 15 away goals in one season were only successful for Nyers. Lukaku still has two games to set new records.
So the main task for Naples is: switch off Lukaku. Then the chances of taking something countable from the Giuseppe Meazza stadium with you are much better.
Even one point should not be enough in the fight for sixth place and participation in the Europa League, Napoli already needs a win, and then the day after, it is hoped that AC Milan will fail at Sampdoria.
Milan did their first favor in this direction to the Neapolitans on match day 36 when the Rossoneri could not get past 1-1 against Atlanta. This brought Napoli close to Naples, as the Serie A table shows.
The Neapolitans themselves did their homework against Sassuolo and won their home game after an early goal by Hysajs (8th minute) and a late one by Allan (90. + 3) with 2: 0 – but were also very lucky. Because Sassuolo were denied four (!) Goals, each because of tight offside positions, in which the VAR always intervened after scoring.
Napoli was not convincing in the win and was lucky that it was enough for the three points – but that will not matter to coach Gennaro Gattuso’s team, because what matters are the three important points in the fight for the Europa League goal.
At least Gattuso was satisfied with the appearance of his team. Now it is important to win the remaining two games: “We have to stay focused at all times, you must not relax, otherwise we will allow the opponent opportunities.” With a view to participating in Europe, the coach said: “We have to stay on course and keep working hard. ”
Without hard work, even with a point win at Inter Milan, it will certainly be nothing. Before the game Inter Milan vs. Naples, however, show the odds that guests go into this game as outsiders.
