In the 29th round of Serie A, Inter will host Napoli, after both clubs were eliminated from the Champions League. While Napoli was never considered as a favourite against Barcelona, giving feverish performances of the team after winning the title last season, Inter was among the main contenders over winning the Champions League, due to the solid and almost invincible game this season. Now the teams are back to their tasks in the Serie A, where Inter has already won over Napoli twice this season and in general, coming to San Siro is not very pleasant to the Neapolitans, given that they lost 5 consecutive matches in Milan. 

Inter Milan vs Napoli Preview 

Inter Milan Preview

After the painful elimination from the Champions League, Inter ended its serie of 13 wins in all competitions. Despite this, the Serie A season will most likely end with Inter being triumphant due to the 16-points lead in the table. Even though the team may not be in their best psychological form, Simone Inzaghi assured that it will not haunt the players until the end of the season. Inter still can beat several records in Serie A, such as all-time points record (102) and the match against Napoli will be the main test for the Milanese in order to determine their resilience.

Napoli Preview 

Unlike Inter, Napoli was not considered as favourites in the clash with Barcelona. Moreover, the Neapolitans had quite a tumultuous season with impulsive coach resignations, thus, the expectations from the team were considerably low. Despite this, Napoli still has solid chances to represent Italy in the European cup for the next season. The gap with the fourth place is 7 points, and given that Italy has a chance to get 5 Champions League spots for the next season, Napoli is competing against the fifth Roma, who is only 4 points away. The Neapolitans slowly align their game with the vision of their new coach, Francesco Calzone, and under his leadership are still yet to lose in Serie A, with 2 draws and 2 wins, including a win against Juventus (2-1). Napoli can exploit Inter’s frail state of mind and potential loss of concentration, given the Nerazzurri’s gap in the tables. 

Betting Tips for Inter Milan vs Napoli

Inter to Win

No matter what state of mind both of the teams are at, Inter is currently playing on another level. Napoli still has to adapt to Calzone’s vision, and the only cohesive match they played was against Juventus. The first-round match saw Inter winning 3-0, totally outplaying Napoli, and while in this match, the high amount of goals is unlikely to be scored, the Neapolitans still do not have the capacity to outperform Inter. Unibet gives 1.56 for this Inter Milan vs. Napoli prediction.

Lautaro Martinez to Score at Any Time

In the upcoming match, a lot will depend on the player who will take up the mantle of the leader to lead the team. Lautaro Martinez is the key player for Inter and one of the leaders in the dressing room, alongside Nicolo Barella. In the last match against Napoli, in the Supercup, it was Martinez, who brought Inter to win in 90+1 minute. This match, given all the circumstances, can be another test for him and the best scorer of the Serie A (23 goals) is likely to fit the shoes. Inter Milan vs. Napoli odds for this outcome, as defined by Unibet, are 2.18.

Total Goals Under 3.5

Teams do not seem to be capable of throwing an entertaining match with a lot of goals scored. After playing 120 minutes, Inter will surely look for an energy-saving match, while Napoli under Calzone plays adapting to the opponents. The Neapolitan also had quite an exhausting match against Barcelona and are unlikely to escalate the speed in this match. Unibet gives 1.50 for this Inter Milan vs. Napoli tip.
