Napoli enters this clash without any pressure or anything like that. Partenopei are second in the standings behind Juventus, and can’t go up or down no matter their results in the last two games of the season. After a period in which they huge oscillations, we could say that they stabilized their form by recording three wins in a row. The opponents haven’t been some tough teams, but still, Ancelotti’s guys scored twice in each contest, and that has to be recognized. There is an interesting pattern when looking at the efficiency in Napoli’s games. Seven of 10 concluded with 2 or 3 goals. That data will come handy when picking the bets for this game, so do have it on your mind.
Inter needs to stay unbeaten in this game. Nerrazzuri are currently fighting for the Champions League place and is imperative for them to take all least one point from this clash and to secure their place in the most prominent European competition. At the moment Luciano Spalletti’s guys are in a solid form with seven consecutive matches in which they haven’t lost. Inter recorded three wins and four draws during that span, but we cannot really say that they showed some exemplary performances in any of those clashes. They are often struggling, and the team lacks creativity and flamboyancy in the attack. However, they have three wins and two draws in the previous five road matches. During that time they kept their net intact on three occasions. But what frightens Inter’s fans is the fact that their team has only one win in Naples since 2001.

David Ospina might not be available because of personal reasons, while Vlad Chiriches is ruled out as he still hasn’t recovered from his shoulder injury.
Matteo Politano probably won’t play because of its ankle injury, while Stefan De Vrij’s condition is being evaluated.
Be sure that Napoli isn’t going to step aside in this match, and that Ancelotti’s guys will be motivated to defeat the great rival. After all, the legendary coach has been the leader of their vicious enemies, AC Milan. So, expect a tough and fierce battle at San Paolo, without too many goals. Inter often has a conservative approach on the road, and they protect their own goal first choosing to attack later. We already spoke about Napoli’s efficiency, which brings us to the conclusion that a moderate number of scores, 2 or 3, is the most suitable for this event. Something tells us that Inter would settle for a draw here and that the guests won’t be that open and offensive. For this pick, Betfair will double your investment, as their odds are set at 1/1.
The last sentence in the previous paragraph reveals our thoughts on the final outcome. Somehow in this situation, a draw is the most realistic result for this meeting. Napoli is playing solid, Inter also, and there isn’t some significant difference between these two sides or some particular advantage of one which might provide an edge. Because of that, we are proposing a draw to be your bet. Everybody will be happy with it. Napoli extended their unbeaten row at home against Inter; on the other side, the guests took one valuable point from a tough road trip. And that is it. The best odds for this one are at Bet365, 12/5.
